USA Extreme Landscapes is a bundled add-on of a scenery enhancement for mainland USA, plus a Piper Dakota aircraft, both for use with Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002 and Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004.

The scenery enhancement consists of an increased resolution for the elevation data grid used within the flight simulator, to either 38 meter or 78 meter in resolution depending on the area.
The scenery is separately installable in five areas for the Appalachians, Great Plains, Southeast, Rockies and the West Coast.
The included aircraft is a Piper PA-235/236 Dakota, which also can be installed on its own.

To explore the scenery, there are included eighteen pre-made adventures to fly in the Dakota, which follows some scenic routes across the US: along the California coastline, over Appalachian mountains, Grand Canyon, Crater Lake, plus a series of flights over Mount Rushmore - Yellowstone - Grand Teton National Parks, following the actual flights made by writer Doug Horton in his 'Mountain Flying Adventure', as a narrated vacation trip, included as a companion document to read.

When registering this product with Abacus, you would get sent a bonus CD with additional geographic coverage of the states of Hawaii and Alaska.
