Core area with helipads some further details shown on the map:

Ah, wonderful, helipads for this scenery ARE VERY VERY GOOD: But - a little caveat - it will be impossible with AFS2's Robinson R22 to climp above 12.000 ft ;)  .  Well, hopefully a third party payware developer will come around the corner with a more capable one (AFS2) for the new Lukla X soon as possible.

 

All the best.

For the FSX/P3D version we may create a switch to activate/deactivate the grey area in case users prefer a fallback to vector sceneries like FTX Global and others.

Excellent idea: this give users more choice. I guess we will still have to use the Vector configurator as well, when switching, to enable/disable the airports...

Ah, you just revealed the scenery's weakest point: Not a single one of those airport runways is flat.

This is not the scenery's weakest point, but the strongest point. Flat runways are boring. I can't wait to land the SIAI Marchetti SF260 with engine off...

As far as I know, the Do228 is the largest scheduled aircraft there.

 

The LET-410 can carry about the same amount of passengers but is considerably larger than a DO228. It seems to be a very regular visitor there in recent years (one of them unfortunately involved in one of the deadliest accidents). Not sure if there's a good addon of this beauty yet:

Yes, but keep in mind that Aerofly FS2 brought out helicopter support just a few weeks ago. I'm positive there will be more options soon.

As or the R22: Performance is OK around Phaplu and Rumjatar. Difficult to handle in Lukla but possible. From Namche Bazaar upwards it's simply impossible to fly if you plan on keeping the altitude where you took off - we certainly need something stronger. But there are some nice helipads around Namche that will let you use the R22 to propel steep into the valley:

I understand that here the Big Star is Lukla (VNLK), followed by some well-known runways. Any additional playground is always welcome.

Excellent work

Two more random shots I took while checking the scenery for the first beta last Thursday:

Oh shit. 1st pic looks like a real picture. I feel immersed like some weeks ago in the CGN preview. Good job Sasa. I am very impressed. Really good job Aerosoft. Go ahead...

Yes, amazing screenshots.  This will be a spectacular scenery.  I am really stoked that this is being developed for AFS2.  Flying around this scenery in VR will be spectacular.

I just have to say this really looks like the Himalayas.

How many 8.000+ meters mountains will be in the scenery?

I think Sascha showed the region it covers.  Does that not answer the question?

I am working on the manual of the AFS2 version, that should give you some idea.

Does anybody know, if there is any add on available for Kathmandu? The german would say. This would be the cream on the mountain.

There is a FSX Version VNKT done by Thai Creations from 2012.

MP Design Studio has an Aerospatiale Lama helicopter.

 

The Lama is a high-altitude specialist version of the Gazelle / Alouette.  It can handle Lukla and even higher -- up to 41,000 feet if I recall the record-setting altitude it set, correctly.

This one only works with FSX and P3D version 3&4. KBUR71 is asking for a version for AFS2 ( Aerofly FS 2 ),

For Aerofly FS2 there is a simple rendition of Kathmandu at FSCloudPort

 

We just decided that we will add a 4000+m runway at an altitude of more than 13,000 ft (not Kathmandu!), which is underway of being constructed this year. More information to follow soon. :)

Oops!  Sorry KBUR71.  I was in a hurry and glanced over things too quickly.

 

Hope to see some more helos in AFS2 going forward.

Will that be a fictional runway or is there a real airport behind? My idea was getting into a pmdg 747 at Frankfurt for example. Fly to Kathmandu, then change the Airplane. Do228 is mine b.t.w. Then go up to Lukla.
