CYKF - Region of Waterloo International Airport by RegDesigns

On behalf of the RegDesigns team we are very excited to announce and preview second product for Microsoft Flight Simulator: CYKF - Region of Waterloo International Airport.

Region of Waterloo International Airport is an international airport 1 hour west of Toronto and is the 14th busiest airport in Canada by aircraft movements, according to the latest data, with 118,541 aircraft movements in 2018. It is served by airlines such as WestJet, Sunwing, and in the near future Flair Airlines who announced just a few days ago that they will soon be operating non stop flights from Waterloo to Vancouver, Calgary, Victoria, Edmonton, Halifax and Winnipeg. In addition to commercial traffic, CYKF is a popular general aviation airport and is home to one of the largest and most experienced flight training centers in Canada as well as a couple dozen privately owned hangars. It is also a popular airport for student pilots training elsewhere as well as general aviation pilots to fly to from the Toronto and Southern Ontario area.

Hundreds of hours and lots of love has already gone into this project so far and the scenery is nearly complete with just one section of the airport left to finish followed by detailing and polishing. We are hoping to have it ready for release on simMarket within the next week along with a full feature list.

Awesome stuff, it looks really similar to the real one. I’ve been here a couple of times and have a few friends who go to WWFC, a great airport to go to for sure!

Curious what made the folks at Regdesigns decide to do CYKF?

Thanks for your kind words! Its a small world, I got my PPL at CZBA with Spectrum, so naturally I’ve flown here quite a bit too. Our founder goes to WWFC and I know a few more friends who go there as well so we’re really passionate about this project and we’re doing our best to match it to the real airport. It really is a fun airport to fly into.

@Piper9t3 I hope this answers your question as well!

Please do CZBA. I flew my training from there too. In the Warrior Oscar Charlie Hotel, then most of the cessna 152s also. Waterloo was one of my solo destinations.
