This has been a project of mine for a while and it is still a work in progress. In fact, this was the first scenery that I attempted and abandoned in order to work on "Utah". The low resolution Landsat imagery leaves much to be desired. I had to clean up a lot of cloud cover, and most of the mountains are covered with snow. Nevertheless, I'm surprised that no one made a scenery of this beautiful mountain range before. Due to the sociopolitical situation of the Caucasus region I don't expect that there's much soaring going on there, but perhaps someone will correct me. I couldn't find any info on it in English except a single photo of a paraglider somewhere in Georgia. As far as I can tell, most of the airports are either regional or old military bases. Most tourists probably arrive via the Queen Tamar airport in Mestia, in the vicinity of the spectacular Ushba peak.
This scenery is 8 x 12 Terragen tiles @ 2048px resolution. At this point it has 11 airports including 4 imaginary (made for easier access to all mountain areas). Here are the maps:

Beslan and Nalchik respectively:
Approaching the Caucasus from the north are large swaths of lush deciduous forests:
Which brings me to the problem of having to create forests. I don't have any useful data on that region, but it would be a shame not to have any in the scenery. If anyone would like to offer assistance (partnership) in finishing this scenery I would be very grateful. I don't consider airport accuracy to be a high priority though, perhaps only Queen Tamar as there are pictures and video of the airport available. Cheers.
