There are few places on earth that have such a long history of civilized habitation as Crete. Its location and the pleasant climate are still reasons why it is a destination for so many people. If you travel to Crete you will land on its main airport, Heraklion International Airport "Nikos Kazantzakis"which has finally arrived in FSX, Prepar3D and FS2004.
The Heraklion International Airport “ Nikos Kazantzakis“ will soon be replaced by a brand new airport because it simply is not able to handle the load in summer. But for now it is the second busiest airport in Greece and squeezed in between the sea and the city it has one of the most scenic approaches in the Mediterranean. FSDG made this into a very special scenery, spend a few minutes looking at the product page and you will see the attention to detail is impressive.

Awards / Reviews:
Conclusion by Mutley`s Hangar: "This is a very nice scenery package. It looks good and there are plenty of options to help get a good performance to suit your own computer’s performance. The textures and fantastic night lighting give it a very realistic look and it is very accurate as far as I can tell from photos. The only negative aspects are that I think that the PAPI lights could have been a bit clearer; after all there is no ILS. Once you touch down the first thing you see is the space between the runway and taxiway, where there could have been better textures with more 3D textures visible. However balanced against the many positive aspects noted earlier. Final Mutley`s Hangar Score 9/10"
Concluion by simFlight.com: "Outstanding sums it up. The Mediterranean area has no shortage of top quality airports from which to choose and now Heraklion X can be added to that category. Despite a few small issues this is definitely one to get. Without doubt this is a great value for the price."
