Alpha Release! Product is not in a finished state!

Welcome to Nepal!

Tribhuvan International Airport (IATA: KTM, ICAO: VNKT, colloquially referred to as TIA) is an international airport located in Kathmandu, Nepal. The airport is named after Tribhuvan Bir Bikram Shah, the former King of Nepal. It is operating with a tabletop runway, one domestic and an international terminal. As a sole international airport, it connects Nepal to over 40 destinations in 17 countries.

The airport is a hub for two international airlines, the flag carrier Nepal Airlines and Himalaya Airlines, along with several other domestic and regional carriers. The airport is considered as a starting point for Mount Everest, with several daily flights to Lukla. Several airlines also offer Everest sightseeing flights out of Kathmandu.

What's in it?
This is an alpha version, the airport is not finished. Currently the package contains following features:
* Handcrafted buildings of the International Terminal, Tower and entrance gate and many more with optimized 4K PBR materials.
* Custom runway & taxiways  with correct naming and textures matching reality as close as possible.
* Custom aprons with textures matching reality as close as possible.
* Correct ground markings amd lines.
* Basic night lighting and correct approach lights
* Correct parking spots.
* Correct comm. frequencies
* Handcrafted model of prominent UNESCO World Heritage Boudhanath stupa that can be seen on any approach.
* Many ground objects to make airport more lively.

What's not in it (yet)?
* Handcrafted versions of the domestic terminal, military area and smaller hangars.
* Taxiway signs.
* Correct approaches and departures. (just the generic ones, which are not necessarily correct)
* Corrected ground services.
* Car park needs some love.

Many of these things will be added in future updates.


Where should I fly to?
My personal favorites are: Lukla, Pokhara, Jomsom, Jumla, Paro

Enjoy your flights around Nepal!

  • Version 0.4 February 26, 2021

    Changes v0.4 (Hotfix):

    Some fixes for reocurring issues introduced in previous versions. I am very sorry for that!

    * Improved texture on runway. It is still dirty, but not as prominent anymore
    * Fixed a texture issue on VIP Gate
    * Removed most of the Ground Vehicles. Apron is now more emptier, however, the immersion should be less broken now by vehicles going crazy.
    * Corrected TIA sign. Hopefully the spelling in Nepali language is correct now. Please let me know!

    I am very sorry for misspelling. It was not my intention to offend anyone, it is simply a limitation of both, my language skills and fonts in Blender (Modelling Software).

    Changes v0.3:

    * Added custom VIP Terminal
    * Added custom VIP Entrance

    * Added custom Mi 17 Nepalese Army Air Service Helicopter

    * Many small Bugfixes and Improvements

    Changes v0.2:

    * Correct taxiway names.

    Maybe I'm just a little bit dump, but how can I get this scenery working ? I copied the "troglodytus-airport-vnkt-tribhuvan" folder in my community order and nothing happens.
    By the way, any possibility to improve Ramechhap Airport VNRC ? Can't wait to get the Twin Otter of Aerosoft so I can finally enjoy flying in Nepal.

    Strange! Do you have trouble regarding other sceneries as well?
    Nobody ever complained to me about tribhuvan not working at all. My best guess is, that there is some other addon you have loaded interfering, because of an "un-renamed modellib" issue. Since addons are loaded alphabetically you could try renaming the "troglodytus-airport-vnkt-tribhuvan" into "a-troglodytus-airport-....". This changes the order of loading.
    Please tell me if it worked!

    VNRC Ramechhap? I honestly have no experience regarding that airport, however, it seems interesting! Maybe I can do that at some point in the future!
    Thanks and have a great day!

    What exactly do you mean by that? The name on the sign on main terminal right? I fixed it - I copied the text from your last message, verified it with Google and copied it into Blender. I even changed the language on my computer to Nepali Language to make sure everything will work with the fonts.
    So if the sign is not correct, I am out of ideas on what to do :-(

    Breaking through the clouds to navigate the valleys for RWY02 and then seeing your work of art to guide me in safely just gave me the most nervewracking yet amazing simulation experience, ever. I was physically smiling all the way from the valley up to the gate. Thank you so much!

    Great work again with the update. But - the pushback cars still driving around alone on their own - sometime into my plane ;-)

    It's really crazy, there are only a few left.. I have no idea why they are doing that. I created other airports in the same way and no ground vehicle ever showed this behaviour!

    I noticed some improvements in today's update, but not sure if I can put my finger on it.

    I see some development north of the runway.
    I also see some weathering of the Runway... tire marks. Very good!

    Thank you.
    :)

    Hello!
    Since I am doing it in my recreational time I do not want to give a strict timeline, however, I have modeled the VIP Buildings and the Domestic Terminal is starting to look quite ok... Quite a few hangars left to be modeled!

    In Kathmandu the Changu Narayan Temple is now gone after UK update. Was there before the UK update but sadly now it’s gone. Can you help with this?

    Hi!
    I am not quite sure if I can help, was it included in Microsofts default scenery? It is not included in my airport pack!

    February 24, 2021
    No as far as I know it was not included in the org default scenery. It's located about 2 mile east of the airport on top of a hill. It may have been included with Bodhgaya India scenery. That's all had in my community folder other than all the scenery Nepal stuff from this website. Love VFR was also installed. It's really small 3 stories.

    Oh okay, I see. So it was probably included with your India Scenery Pack. Currently there is only the Boudhanath Stupa included (outside airport buildings).
    maybe I can do some more temples in the city, once the airport is finished, let's see!

    That would be great if you could. Even though its not very big, it's very prominent, as it's height and location on top of hill looking over the entire Kathmandu valley to the west, The improvements you've made so far are an excellent addition as is. I look forward to see what you will do in the future, which I'm sure will be an excellent addition to one of the most scenic places on earth. Kathmandu. Was that too much? LOL Thank you for considering it.

    I dont quite get it? Just delete the Tara Air folder from your community folder and you should be fine.

    So far have only just taken a quick look round and not flown in or out of the airport but concur with a couple of the other comments regarding the vehicles moving around which are going in the air, through buildings, respawning themselves in front of your eyes etc. Personally would like to see a version of this without all the moving vehicles as right now they detract a bit from what looks like a nice airport.

    Hi! Thanks for pointing it out! Hopefully I can resolve this issue in a future update. No idea why the AI is doing that though..

    Dear r2b2nz,
    I just wanted to let you know that in my latest release 0.4, I tried to minimize the impact of ground vehicles until I can finally figure out what is causing the vehicles to go crazy.
    Thank you for your patience, this project is still work in progress.
