    Review: ORBX - PAJN Juneau International Airport

    By Raymond Andersen

    Intro

    Juneau International Airport is a medium size airport located in Alaska and features an 8857 foot asphalt runway together with a smaller water runway for the seaplane based aircraft. The airport is a city-owned airport and supports a variety of aircraft from small bush planes to medium size, regional airliners as Alaska Airlines etc.

    The airport was originally founded in the 1930's and was during WWII used as a transport link for the United States Army Air Forces. After the war the airport started getting routes from e.g. Pan American World Airways with their Douglas DC-4 and later with various jet airliners.

    Today there are more than 100,000 operations per year and Juneau International Airport serves as a central hub for a large part of the Alaskan area. The airport has also become very famous for the scenic and quite difficult approaches and has been one of my personal favorite airports for flight simulation.

    Purchase, Download And Installation

    This PAJN scenery I got directly from the ORBX Systems web site and I used the FTX Central v3 for the entire download and installation of the software. The size of the file is about 385 MB which was quickly downloaded and automatically installed on my system without me having to select correct folders, etc. Actually all I had to do was click the button Install Product after the activation of the scenery.

    For those of you that haven't used the FTX Central v3 yet, then this program does everything for you - you can purchase, download and install the software together with installing updates to all the activated airports software - it is super easy and very user friendly. Also by using this add-on software you do not need to backup your sceneries on various other external hardware, and you also do not have to keep track of license keys, order numbers, dates or similar - this is a really nice way to purchase and install sceneries for sure.

    The PAJN scenery that I have tested and which is included in this review is the version for FSX and the version number v1.15. The scenery is also compatible with FSX:SE, P3D v1, v2, v3 and v4 - however these versions I have not tested.
