LHSimulations Announce Budapest V2.0 FSElite

Over on their Facebook page, LHSimulations announced that v2.0 of their popular Budapest scenery is in the works! V2.0 is said to be a technically improved product, with new buildings and stands/gates being featured in the airport.

This was certainly a short and sweet announcement, as nothing else was said except that “we’ll give you info on details”, presumably once the project is farther along. We’ll keep you posted on any further developments on Budapest v2.0.

Flightbeam Tease 3 Upcoming Airports, Including One Unannounced

Flightbeam Tease Upcoming Airports FSElite

Over on their Facebook page, Flightbeam teased a picture showcasing 3 of their upcoming airports.

Out of the 3 sceneries shown, 2 have been confirmed thus far: KPDX Portland at the top and NZWN Wellington at the bottom. However, the scenery in the middle remains a mystery. Guesses in the comments of the post are all over the place, with a few guessing SEQM Quito.

Through images I found through a quick Google search on Quito, my (personal and unconfirmed guess) is that the mystery airport is indeed Quito. This is just a guess at this point, but the images I was able to find are rather similar to the teaser shown by Flightbeam. We expect to know for certain as the scenery progresses closer to a release.

You can find the images I based my guess on below. Notice the distinct jetbridge architecture, the terminal roof, and the various ground vehicles scattered around.
