Kastellorizo is a small island located only 2 kilometers from the Turkish coast. It`s past it`s heyday as it now only has just under 500 inhabitants while it used to have as many as 10.,000 at the end of the nineteenth century. But for the many people who love island hopping in Greece it is a very attractive destination because of its originality, easy pace of living and the stark natural beauty.
In FSX (and P3D) it is a perfect destination with a tremendous level of detail while keeping your framerates high. This version by FSDG shows again that this development team is among the best. They got the colors always right and they know where to add detail and where to save polygons. What they end up is something that just ‘feels’ right. Kastellorizo, the Aegean Pearl, is a great example of what a modern small area scenery should be.

Awards / Reviews:
Conclusion by Avsim.com: "The world of FSX has been enriched with this add-on. You can enjoy the beautiful rendering of yet another Greek island paradise and an airport that even a seasoned pilot would find challenging. to sum up; I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this package and I give it my highest recommendation."
Conclusion by Aerosoft Sim News: "Certainly a beautiful destination for GA pilots who love thrilling approaches and island hopping. Keeping in mind that the island is rather barren and dry and missing vegetation in the virtual world, I`ve been informed that in the real life this isn’t the case. I had criticized the missing colors of the house in the city, but clearly, I have to mention that the boats, vessels and ferries look excellent with a lot of shiny colors. So, all in all, FSDG has developed a nice scenery with some limitations. I have experienced a strange mesh on the Turkish coast line which did not go away after a new installation using UTE. Furthermore, my PC crashed a couple of times after installing the software and only after deactivating UTE in the scenery. Help was provided from the Aerosoft Forum where I have been told to update UTE to version 1.04 and 1.05. I strongly hope that this important information will be added to the users manual. Except for some water walls on the left hand side of the mountain facing the airport, everything is running very smoothly now and I didn`t experience any FSX breakdowns any more. A short side note: The free flight mentioned in the Aerosoft manual did not show up in the FSX flight menu. So far, there was no reply from the developers about whether this might be a bug."
