Night Environment New York State adds real world road vector data to your night flight visuals. We spread 2,848,476 3D lights to highlight the road grid below as seen from the flightdeck. Our lights are placed accurately with 1:1 real world fidelity. Each Night Environment region offers you the chance to practice and train for real-world night navigation based on the realistic visuals Night Environment renders in your area.

The Night Environment lighting system illuminates a region of 60nm around your aircraft as you fly. Our lights are not affected by the low rendering distance limiations inherant with Autogen often seen with similar autogen based lighting products.

Night Environment New York covers the entire New York state area.

Geographical Data

New York

The New York metropolitan area has the busiest airport system in the United States. It is also the most frequently used port of entry and departure for international flights.

In 2011 more than 104 million passengers used the airports under the auspices of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ). The metro area is served by three major airports, John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) and La Guardia Airport (LGA), which have been operated by PANYNJ since 1947.

The class B airspace used by the three airports is extremely congested. Despite caps placed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) limiting the number of flights per hour, they rank among the top five in the USA for delays.

In addition to JFK, EWR, and LGA, there are satellite or reliever airports in the metro area which provide additional commercial air carrier service, albeit on a much smaller scale, as well as numerous general aviation airports, heliports, and seaplane bases.
