  2. Welcome to the City of Sails, or Tāmaki-makau-rau, its Māori name. Auckland hardly needs an introduction given its stunning bayside location on the North Island of New Zealand and its famous buildings and structures. No wonder it is frequently ranked among the world’s topmost livable cities. In addition to the iconic Sky Tower and Auckland Harbor Bridge, we’ve modelled the entire downtown waterfront in full detail, from the historic Ferry Building to Hobson Wharf. In the CBD you’ll find the tall towers of The Pacifica, PwC, and Seascape, and to the east the imposing structure of the Auckland War Memorial Museum. The port areas downtown also received careful attention, with custom models for industrial buildings and container cranes, the Marine Rescue Center, and a diverse collection of ships and boats. The city’s terrain is dotted with dozens of ancient volcanic cones, some of which have hilltop POIs, like the obelisk on One Tree Hill (Maungakiekie), the Beacon on Mount Eden (Maungawhau), and the weather station on Victoria Hill. For helicopter pilots, the ASB Bank Centre and Auckland City Hospital have landable helipads. In addition, Mechanics Bay heliport east of the container port as well as several moored vessels in port with helipads offer landing spots. $13.63 AUD Sales tax will be calculated at checkout where applicable. US$10.11 | €8.72 | £7.36 USD, EUR, GBP estimates only We’ve added animated features on both water and land so keep your eyes peeled while exploring the city and its surroundings. As with all our Landmarks titles, we've made extensive enhancements to the entire area, including custom orthoimagery, terraforming, and improving the placement of vegetation and generic buildings. Last but not least, along the entire coastline, from Buckland Beach in the southeast to Whenuapai airport in the northwest, we have exposed the extensive tidal mudflats and beaches that are covered by water in the default scenery. As an added bonus, receive a 25% discount if you bundle Landmarks Auckland and our picturesque New Zealand Mesh together! Features High-detail custom landmarks include Auckland Harbor Bridge, Sky Tower, Auckland War Memorial Museum, Eden Park Stadium, and the entire downtown waterfront between the Ferry Building and Hobson Wharf. More than 100 medium-detail custom buildings showcase the unique architecture of historic and new Auckland. Several buildings with rooftop helipads, with additional landing areas on moored vessels and at the Mechanics Bay heliport. Animated features on both water and land. Custom orthoimagery for downtown Auckland and the entire Waitematā Harbor waterfront. Many enhancements to the city and surrounding areas: improved vegetation and building placements, static boats, vessels, cranes, antennae, etc. Extensive terraforming and shoreline adjustments across the coverage area. Custom night lighting based on real-world photography. $13.63 AUD Sales tax will be calculated at checkout where applicable. US$10.11 | €8.72 | £7.36 USD, EUR, GBP estimates only

  10. Available now from CanadianFlightSimStudios is CYAZ Tofino/Long Beach Airport for both Microsoft Flight Simulator and X-Plane 11. Fly through Pacific Rim National Park Reserve and experience the vast ocean views and stunning coastline Tofino/Longbeach has to offer. With CYAZ located right next to the iconic Long Beach, this scenery is perfect for any VFR adventurist, or the IFR enthusiast looking for a challenging foggy approach. Tofino/long beach airport was built in 1943 during WWII as RCAF Station Tofino alongside the construction of Radar Hill just north of the airfield. The airfield was used by few squadrons during its service from 1943-1945. In 1955 The airfield was opened again to be used by NORAD in the Pine Tree Line all the way until 1958. Up until 2010, the airport remained very quiet with only a few general aviation hangars. Since 2010 Tofino has gotten many upgrades such as resurfacing runway 11/29 as well as added night lighting. A brand new Terminal and maintenance building was also built to accommodate multiple regional airlines including Pacific Coastal to assist in the large increase of tourism traffic. With many regional flights and increased GA traffic, Tofino is the perfect destination only a short flight away from KSEA, CYVR, or CYYJ. Our Rendition of CYAZ - Tofino/Longbeach airport includes many small details as well as highly detailed buildings and accurately modelled runways and markings.

  13. Another twin-engined classic and an American legend. The Electra was Lockheed's first twin-engine, all-metal design (designed by Lloyd Stearman ... yes that Stearman !) which first felt the air under its wings in 1935. A highly modified Model 10 E was made famous by Amelia Earhart who tragically disappeared during a round-the-world record attempt. The Electra is so evocative of the '30s and '40s and appeared in many movies, carrying Humphry Bogart to some distant Pacific island or later battling valiantly pressed into military service during WW2. There were only 149 Electra E10's ever built. Now is your chance to get your hands on one! $44.49 AUD Sales tax will be calculated at checkout where applicable.
