FSX Scenery - Bhutan Airports And Paro Valley.

This project adds and updates all of the airports of Bhutan. Bathpalathang (VQBT) and Gelephu (VQGP) are added, Yongphulla (VQ10) is updated and recoded as VQTY, and Paro (VQPR) is fully updated to reflect current satellite imagery. These are all fully functioning AI airports as well.

Special attention was given to the entire Paro Valley, and numerous road/river vectors were updated around Gelephu. Accurate coastlines, lakes, road and river data, as well as corrected landclass are provided based on the latest available satellite imagery. They are optimized to fit seamlessly with FTX Vectors roads/water, but they should be fully functional in all FSX configurations. GA-encoded flight plans for the Buddha Air/Kathmandu charter are provided to enhance service to Paro. NASA SRTM Global 3 arc second terrain mesh is also included for all of Bhutan. Updates were created or rebuilt in a manner which carefully aligned airport data with current satellite imagery, when available.

Scenery was created using Airport Design Editor X v1.61.5298, SBuilderX 3. 13, and the FSX Object Placement Tool. Scenery objects were added and modified from stock FSX scenery to resemble as closely as possible the actual airports.
