The Airport Calvi - Sainte Catherine (CLY/LFKC) on the island of Corsica is beautifully embedded in a valley to the south-east of the town of Calvi.
The airport itself has been faithfully recreated with high resolution aerial images, numerous custom 3D objects and exact ground markings, including the old painted-over markings. It also includes reworked terrain and an impressive night lightning.
The developers have also paid great attention to the surrounding area of the airport, the nearby business park and the citadel of Calvi.
Landing approaches are particular fun in Calvi: While Sainte Catherine is usually approached from the seaside; pilots can fly past the airport to the west, then turn by 180 degrees and approach the runway from the south.

Conclusion by Flightsim.com: "As you will find, this really can be a challenging airport to fly in and out of if you come from the north side to runway 36, and for this reason it is also one of those gems that I believe goes largely unnoticed in the world of technically challenging airports, so thanks to Aerosoft for bringing it to life."
