Discover the Land of the Big Rich…
Horizon Simulation is delighted to announce the latest addition to its hanger of highly accurate, photographic scenery enhancements for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002/2004.

If you’ve already enjoyed the stunning sceneries of England & Wales and San Francisco & Sacramento, you’re going to love where we’re taking you next… It’s time to take flight once again over the Land of Opportunities and enjoy the State where everything is bigger and bolder… Land of the Big Rich!

We invite you to fly over the twin city metroplex of Dallas/Fort Worth, home to a multi-billion dollar oil industry, the world famous Dallas Cowboys, and of course JR Ewing! On top of all this, Dallas/Fort Worth plays host to the 6th busiest Airport in the world (DFW International).

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to fly high above your home town, exploring and experiencing views normally reserved for the wealthy and the feathered, now’s your chance to soar the skies above Texas and fulfil that fantasy. With this incredible scenery upgrade you can visit your home, your school, your office, or just enjoy the spectacular scenery that Dallas/Forth Worth has to offer - all in your favourite flight simulator and from the comfort of your own home!

9,300 square miles of scenery let you discover this massive Texan metropolis in breath-taking photographic detail - fly further and for longer than with any other scenery add-on of Dallas/Fort Worth!

Recreate flights all over the DFW metroplex in true photographic detail…
Using the best aerial photography and the most accurate terrain data available, VFR USA gives you unparalleled scenery quality and allows you to recreate flights all over Dallas/Fort Worth and the surrounding area in true photographic detail!

For rookie pilots, VFRUSA is so realistic that it can be used to practice the navigation techniques taught as part of a private pilots license, to become familiar with new flying areas, and to plan routes for real.

Photographic Scenery: 9,300mi?2; (24,000 km?2;) of stunning aerial photography at better than 4.8m/pixel resolution, showing every home, street, town, tree, and river in the scenery area.

Terrain Mesh: A 30m elevation model is provided which includes every lump and bump of terrain in the coverage area, adding depth to the photographic scenery and giving you recognisable terrain with minute topographic detail.

Interactive Water Bodies: Hand cut lakes and rivers provide moving, reflective water textures, and give you the chance to test your skills landing float planes in your local creek!

NEW Night Lighting!: Horizon’s new custom night light technology provides you with incredibly realistic night lighting effects to allow you to practice flying VFR even when the sun goes down, or simply to enjoy captivating scenery on your IFR flights at any time of day or night.

Buildings: To complete the picture, Horizon’s developers have repositioned hundreds of buildings, bridges and other 3D objects provided with Flight Simulator to fit with the photographic scenery and to further enhance your simulation experience with Microsoft Flight Simulator!
