To summarize just what this package gives us here is a paragraph taken from the developer’s product page at SimMarket. It is a very brief outline of what this scenery is all about.
“This scenario covers the entire city of Rio de Janeiro and SDU (SBRJ) airport, as well as the region of lakes and coastline of São Paulo, and also as a bonus the city of Natal RN (With Airport SBNT) is the capital of the Brazilian State of Rio Grande do Norte and is located in the Northeast region of Eastern Brazil and in the Northeast.”

Carenado‘s promise to keep supporting the many users of Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 is still bearing fruit, this time with the release of the C90B King Air.
