Milford Sound Airport (IATA: MFN, ICAO: NZMF) is a small but very busy (in terms of flight movements) airport in Milford Sound, in New Zealand's Fiordland region of the South Island. It is mainly used by tourist / flightseeing operators.
The Airport is located in the village Milford Sound located at the head of the fiord Milford Sound. It serves the Milford Sound tourism industry including boats, kayaks, Milford Track, as well as the fishing boats based at Milford Sound. It stands at the head of the fiord at the junction of the Cleddau and Arthur rivers.

Global AI Ship Traffic V2 seems to be no longer available. Also, the Orbx New Zealand dem 1.0.1 mesh is no longer available, as MSFS has a new very similar mesh since World Update 12.
More importantly, Sim Update 12 seems to have made this airport completely unusable. There are trees all over the airport, and if you spawn on the runway (depending on which end, I guess) you start on top of a house roof.

How is the WU12 stock airport compared to this one?
Should I watch this one for updates?
IanBrettCooper 2 month(s) ago
To be honest, I haven't seen either of them in the sim yet - when I first loaded this one up, it was already corrupted by Sim Update 12, so I have no idea (other than the images here) what this looks like. But this one is generally considered to be one of the best free airports for MSFS, so if I were you, I would keep an eye on this one.
I don't know what happened with the recent update but the whole airport has trees and buildings on top of it LOL
Benji_Boy 6 day(s) ago
Damn, the last update was 2 years and half ago, think it's dead for a new one T_T
I never tried this beauty, it's a shame.
UPDATE: I just realized that the problem I have with Trees in the Helipads and blocking the parking entrance may be because of the 10m DEM files that I may not have installed when I first installed the NZMF scenery a few months ago.
I have the ORBX NZ mesh installed and maybe I thought the developer meant that I should NOT install the 10m DEM files if I have the ORBX mesh. But now, it seems that I SHOULD install the 10m DEM files (1 through 4), regardless of the ORBX NZ mesh.
I downloaded the 10m DEM Parts 1 & 2, (and all the downloads attached to those two) as well as a fresh download of the NZMF. I may even redownload and install the Global ships files, though the previous installation I made seems to be fine when I flew out there three days ago.
When I get a chance later today, I'll install all the new downloads and see if I fixed the tree problem.
**FYI to Sergio: I sent you a donation for the great work on NZMF and I'm sure I need to check and see if I've sent a donation for any of your other work! Thanks again!

Which dem files ?
I love this NZMF scenery! It's the place I either take off from or fly to more often than any other airport I have.
However, recently, (like, 3 days ago), I noticed that there were trees blocking the entrance to the aircraft parking and trees on the helipads! I don't know why that is.
I decided to download the NZMF scenery again today. I don't think this download is any newer than the one I have installed, but I'll delete the installed version and replace it with the fresh download.
I'm not at all discouraged with this addon airport and I'm sure I can find a solution if this doesn't fix the tree problem. In fact, I'm so pleased with the NZMF airport that I'm going to make a donation as soon as I'm through writing this!
Looks like WU12 had some serious impact on this great scenery mod 😞. The whole airport mod has been moved 50-100m to the south. I note you have a displaced thresh hold on the runway, that has caused an issue on some of my work so maybe check that first. Kev

it's a small world

Jup, very unfortunately. Especially since it's a far more detailed rendition that the only from Microsoft that uses twice as much disk space.
Hopefully Sergio will come back and fix his great work.
Photosbykev 3 month(s) ago
definitely hope he does revisit the mod. I think NZA have a version in development as well
wingclip 3 month(s) ago
Well, I deleted and then reinstalled a fresh download of the 2.5 version. Then I installed the #1, 2, 3, & 4 “…dem-newzealand-…” files. I thought that would fix the trees that block the parking entrance but it didn't. Now, I see that I overlooked this post from 14 days ago. It appears that the the latest MSFS Update is the issue... I guess the files I installed had nothing to do with it and wouldn't have fixed it. It's a shame because I really liked that airport.
any difference between this and the Asobo version came out today
Perk 3 month(s) ago
Sergio's version is superior to the Asobo version, but unfortunately seems to be incompatible with SU12. Sergio had 3d objects for a lot of the cliff walls, a much better rendition of the marina areas, and a lot more of the "clutter" that makes an airport seem alive. The Asobo version isn't bad it's just not quite up to the same amazing quality.
bonjour de France.OK with s11. merci pour ce travail
Excellent work, professional piece of work! Just want to say thank you for your hard work even though it looks like the next world update will build over your work. You've provided the NZ flightsim community with an excellent resource enjoyed for several years. Best Regards and thanks.
how do you got these rock textures??
GOOD Things are coming 😉
Excellent add on
just installed milford today and all is weird......vertical mountains on top of eachother etc...need help pls.....

Read the instructions, download the NO DEM file instead of DEM or MAIN.
Is it possible to have a version without the ORBX DEM? Like it was in v2.3?
bvdboomen 6 month(s) ago
I discovered v2.3 is still available. Downloaded it.
Please add exclusion to override airport files in orbx mesh, and exclusion to avoid conflict with YBNA Ballina
I have 2 center lines on my runway. How can i remove one of them?
Thanks for your help.

Deleting z_airport-nzmf from community folder did it for me.
Mashregh 6 month(s) ago
😊 Thank you very much Friedrich! Problem is with your help solved! 😊
Just one question: where did this folder come from?
Thank you for this beautiful scenery 😊
Can confirm this works with SU10 and ORBX mesh. You must delete the two files relating to this airport from the orbx mesh (default and airport files). Great place! I usually cheat and make the weather summer time so I can land here in anything I want. Not sure where the author is but I hope they come back, update some scenery and keep making more.
Just a heads up that I can't load a flight at YBNA Ballina, Australia (payware from AUSCENES) with the Milford Sound Scenery No DEM add-on (SdR Milford 2.3 NO DEM
1.0 August 25, 2021 - 196.43 MB) in the Community folder.
There's obviously a conflict between the two. If you need more detail to find the problem, let me know.
Sergio: Your Milford Sound Airport (NZMF) v2.5 along with your SDR Scenery Pack and Henrik Nielsen’s Global AI Ship Traffic are working perfectly fine with SU9 but only after I downloaded the updated Orbx New Zealand Mesh version 1.1.0 (not to be confused with the older version 1.0.1). The Orbx mesh update comes with three files: orbx-mesh-new-zealand, z_airport-nzmf, and z_default-nzmf. It is a fun bonus to use a float plane to and from the docks. Located in the US using real weather, I was soon reminded that June in New Zealand is winter with cold temperatures, snow, and ice. Although Milford Sound looks like water, float planes do not work because the surface is actually ice. So users must be aware and change the MSFS date and temperature settings to get water for float planes. Love your work. Thank you.
