LGKS Kasos, Agia Marina Airport Practice your crosswind limits here while relaxing in this outback island: This scenery comes near to reality. The airport Agia Marina lies within walking distance from the romantic harbor Fry. Kasos is situated between Karpathos and Crete. The island is very mountainous, Mt. Prionas is 550 m high. In ancient times the population must have been numerous, today it has not more than about 1,000 inhabitants. Kasos is notable for its lack of large scale tourism, for the quality of its fish, cheeses and other culinary specialties, and for its hospitality. Nevertheless it was the first island declaring independence from the Ottoman Turks during the Greek revolution between 1821 and 1832. The scenery shows some buildings of the town Fry, nearby the airport. Because of the incorrect coast line in X-Plane, some compromises had to be made: The turning areas at both ends of the runway would lie in the water and therefore two platforms had to be inserted. For best realism it is suggested that "runways follow terrain contours" in X- Plane's settings should be on. But be careful when passing the tresholds! The runway is not really flat and there are slight steps at both ends, due to the terrain contours. This may cause damage to your aeroplane at high speed. Recommended setting in rendering options->stuff to draw: "mega-tons", and following libraries should be installed first: OpenSceneryX The_Handy_Objects_Library flags_of_the_world ruscenery If you do not already have the libraries used in this package, you may find download links in the Master Library List:  http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?app=downloads&showtopic=90776
