If you want to improve the look of airports in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 and Microsoft Flight Simulator X - Airport Wizard will do just that.

With this tool, you can easily add night illumination of aprons at every airport. You can also add markings and taxiway lines that are completely round at intersections and turns, and have a realistic 3D appearance during night and day time. This is a significant improvement on bright dots that Flight Simulator shows.

Users do not need to have any knowledge about editing airports. Airport Wizard improves the looks of an airport in few seconds, with just a few clicks.

With this tool, you can:

  • Create illuminated aprons that look great at night, you can specify the precise sizes and locations for light spots and the type of lamps you want to use
  • Replace taxiway center lights and taxiway lights with objects that look realistic, which are visible during the day and night

Airport Wizard is compatible with both DirectX 10 and DirectX 9 and modes of FSX, and with FS2004.

Yeah..this software is really cool and very easy to use. It improves the look of the airport lighting at night 100%! The cost is a well worth $14.95 US. Buy it...you will be impressed.
