Does anyone know of any good VHHH scenery already out or in the making for FSX? I want to fly real flight and not Kai Tak. I know there is a good package for FS9 but I'm not sure if it would work on FSX.

Go to Avsim File Library, use Kai Tak FSX as the search term.  Get all the stuff from Jim Vile (jv in the file name), he knows more about the airport than the owners.  What he hasn`t learned about making virtual airports isn`t worth knowing, and they are always based on the real life airport itself.  Cross wind approaches, anything that FSX cannot do, Jim forces it to do it.

I have it here on my setup and have for some time.  I redirected some traffic from the new Hong Kong airport to the old one.  The scenery, effects and the approach are superb!  This is payware quality as freeware.  Hope this helps, enjoy.

Sorry my mistake, most people ask for the old airport.  This one is not made by Jim Vile but he and Reggie Fields did give advise on the subject.  The following is a description from Avsim and attributable to that site and the download author only.

Quote

As requested, This BGL file is only for the FSX default airport: many gates resized where possible with assigned parking including extra parking and additional fuel trucks, the support Vehicle road has been completely rebuilt across the entire airport and Linked together including the Cargo area, this gives easier access for the support vehicles, this has now virtually eliminated support vehicles from using the taxiways and causing holdups, airport views are from inside the control tower (when in tower view) my thanks to Jim Vile and Reggie Fields for their information to get these files operating in FSX, please view the readme before installation, fully tested with Ultimate Traffic but not required

I am led to believe this is freeware but payware quality.  If this fits the bill then please go to Avsim, File Library and use VHHH FSX as the search term.  I am further led to believe no payware products have been made or currently planned.
