A light add-on bringing Kantishna Airport, Alaska, U.S.A up to date and more true-to-life than the stock MSFS version.

The stock version had many issues (like many of the other smaller airfields in the release) and this freeware fix by Emerald Scenery Design brings the flight sim rendition closer to its real-world counterpart.

Screenshot showing Kantishna Airport in MSFS2020.This scenery package fixes that by completely rebuilding the airport from the ground up. Airport elevations have been corrected along with a custom texture for the gravel runway and parking area.

This scenery brings a much-needed makeover to Kantishna Airport. In stock MSFS, the runway was unrealistically displayed on a ridge, an anomaly in the scenery.

Some fixes were also made to the river near the airport, excluding the water that covered areas that it shouldn't, such as areas of forest and sandbars.


The contents of the included "Community" folder should be placed into your MSFS "Packages\Community" folder. The addon scenery will load the next time you start Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Developer: Emerald Scenery Design. Scenery created by Chris Britton (Rotornut44) of Emerald Scenery Design for GotBush? Virtual Backcountry Flight Association. You can visit the official Emerald Scenery Design website here.
