FSDG Releases Mayotte Pamandzi for FSX and P3D

Mayotte Pamandzi 2

FSDG (Flight Sim Development Group) have been incredibly quick at releasing a host of content lately. Their beautiful Mauritius was followed up quickly by ‘lite’ versions of Bodrum and Bangalore, yet each release was detailed, rich and a great addition to the flight sim library. Today, the team released their next airport: Mayotte Pamandzi.

The airport serves as a great stop-over between Madagascar and the African continent. FSDG have worked on this airport to allow you to island hop between some of the most stunning places in the world. With a great approach and a wonderful airport, FSDG says that “Mayotte offers it all”.

The scenery covers the entire Mayotte Pamanzi as well as an accurate and detailed rendition of Dzaoudzi Pamandzi International Airport (FMCZ). Jetways are compatible with both SODE and AES, and the team have done their best to ensure that 3D lighting is performance friendly, without impacting the visual quality.

You can buy it now from FSDG’s website for €12.00.

As per their previous post, it would appear that La Romana will be the next airport to be released followed by Antalya and possibly Casablanca.

FSElite Exclusive: Previews of Latinwings Almeria (LEAM)


We’ve teamed up with AviationLads to bring you some exclusive images of the upcoming Latinwings Almeria (LEAM). The scenery itself is in the final stages of development and serves as an intermediate scenery before the team releases their highly anticipated Madrid scenery in the near future.

Almeria (LEAM) is developed by both Latinwings and PILOT’S and the results are already highly impressive. The screenshots demonstrate the amount of detail that has gone into this little Spanish airport. Not only has the airport been fully modelled to the finest detail, but there’s also been a considerable amount of work done on the surrounding city itself.

Head of development, Trino Rojas had this to say: “Almeria apart from being a work done with passion and dedication, we travel there to take pictures, talk with the airport authorities to get permission to enter and take photos, have a total representation of the city.”

As mentioned above, Almeria was a necessary project to help with the development of Madrid. Quite simply, as such a complex airport, Madrid required a large investment and it was felt by developing a smaller airport in between will help fund the project to ensure it will  be an excellent product in the future.

Finally, it was confirmed that Santiago de Compostela (LEST) is also still in full development and making good progress. Furthermore, the Spanish city of Alicante has also started development work with the team already working on the ground poly.

Lots of Spanish airports in development and we hope you enjoy the shots. This will be the first of many partnerships with the team at AviationLads. Make sure you give them a like on Facebook or check out their Visual Mod – Cold Season as part of our Featured YouTube Community.

Make sure you also like LatinWings and PILOT’S on Facebook for future updates.
