A complete scenery mod featuring Simogu Airstrip (AYQM) in Papua New Guinea bringing it up to accurate and true-to-life detail in Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) 2020 release.  The default Microsoft scenery for this airstrip is lacking (or even missing) and this mod aims to fill that gap.

The scenery of Simogu (AYQM) airport after installing this freeware mod in the simulator.The airstrip itself (AYQM) is just to the west of Gema Airstrip (another included in this series by the same developer and can be found here).

The landing surface is grass and dirt and only 510m long with an upslope gradient of 7.5%.  The airstrip sits at an elevation of 4,800 feet however the elevation in the sim is ~200 feet higher than in the real world (due to a limitation in MSFS).

The developer has gone to great lengths to make Simogu Airstrip (AYQM) appear as accurate and true-to-life as possible utilizing data from various sources including videos, real-world pilot feedback and comments, and drone footage.

Custom models have been included and they match the style and design of Papua New Guinean buildings and architecture to give the airstrip an authentic look, feel, and atmosphere.

The developer has also noted a lot of terraforming has been completed to remove any inconsistencies in the default Microsoft (AI-based) scenery and it is completely hand-generated and tweaked for better detail and accuracy.

Developer's Description

Simogu airstrip (AYQM) is located in Papua New Guinea just to the west of the Gema airstrip, It is a grass/dirt strip 510m long with a 7.5% slope at an elevation of 4800' and should only be landed on runway 16 heading South. The elevation in the sim is 200 feet higher than in real life because of an MSFS sim limitation.

Landing short is not recommended unless you have a good mechanic on board.

The strip has been developed to loosely show the airstrip based on drone footage of the location kindly provided by Ryan, the Missionary bush pilot.

A lot of terraforming has been done and custom models used to give a feel for the real world in Papua New Guinea.
