This page lists Airport, Mesh and Landclass scenery for use when flying to any of Air New Zealand's currently scheduled destinations. We include both freeware and payware scenery. Please let us know if you know if a new or alternate addon for any of the packages listed following.
We would like to take the opportunity to thank those mentioned following for their hard work providing these items for the community, they really enrich the simming experience when flying the virtual NZ skies.
note: some of the free sceneries listed following are essentially AFCAD updates without any dedicated or new modelling or texturing etc. at the very least they are still worthwile as they usually correct runway, taxiway, gate and tower layouts etc. Please also note that as far as we know all NZ sceneries following are compatible with the VLC addon but are not neccessarily compatible with FTX/Orbx sceneries for NZ.

Using a custom mesh and landclass will really transform your flying experience, especially at lower levels.

vANZ can reccommend the fabulous payware options following to really enhance the flying experience in New Zealand...
Vector Landclass a high fidelity landclass and environment upgrade for New Zealand. VLC was the first kid on the block providing full NZ landclass/autogen coverage and is developed by a NZ based team.
FTX/Orbx have released two seperate addons covering New Zeland, one for the North Island NZNI and one for the south NZSI. They add custom landscapes, autogen textures and landclass at the usual high standard expected from the team.
