NEWS! - Scenery Released : PAWD - Seward Airport, Alaska by NorthernSkyStudios  


News! Seward Header.jpg


NorthernSkyStudios are alternating between scenery based in the Hawaiian Islands and Alaska. In Hawaii the releases lately have covered PHMU - Waimea-Kohala, PHOG - Kahului and PHJH - Kapalua Airports. In Alaska the last release was so much a favorite of mine in that X-PlaneReviews quickly covered it in a review; PAEN - Kenai Municipal Airport, just west of Anchorage...  It was a sensational bit of Alaska and well worth checking out if you like serious bush flying.


PAWD - Seward Airport is directly on the other side of the same Kenai Peninsula (Dena'ina: Yaghenen) from Kenai, so it is another great destination and a focus destination of the same area.


Seward is an incorporated home rule city in Alaska, United States. Located on Resurrection Bay, a fjord of the Gulf of Alaska on the Kenai Peninsula, Seward is situated on Alaska's southern coast, approximately 120 miles (190 km) by road from Alaska's largest city, Anchorage.


Owing to its position at the southern terminus of the Alaska Railroad and the well-developed road links to Anchorage and the rest of the Kenai Peninsula, Seward is both a major northern end-port for several major cruise ship lines that host Alaskan cruises, such as Norwegian, Royal Caribbean, Holland America, and Celebrity Cruises, and a common destination for general Alaskan tourism. Huge glaciers flow from the Harding Icefield into the local coastal fjords and the township itself is surrounded by peaks, the adjoining fjords are also a whale and porpoise habitat. To the west, a trail leads to the summit of Mount Marathon (1,471 m). The Mount Marathon Race is a famous mountain race that is run every Fourth of July up the mountain.

The optional Ortho4XP tile by NSS is large in size and a 2.26Gb download (a 1 Ortho4XP_patch is provided). So it covers a significant area around Seward, and well worth the download size.


Priced at only US$14.00, that is great value for a high quality regional scenery, so it is a well worth addition to Kenai if you already have that NorthernSky Scenery.


Highly recommended.
