Overall Summary
The airport can cater to a wide variety of simmers from short-haul to long haul and cargo ops. Despite a few minor issues that could be fixed with an update, the airport has more good things going for it than bad and if fixed it will be one of the better airports out there. With that in mind, its price is also up there even surpassing many other top tier developers. If these minor issues mentioned are corrected and the performance improved, I could see that cost being justified, however, I feel like in its current state it could be sold for a few dollars less given that it doesn't necessarily bring anything new or revolutionary to the table, it's just a great looking airport at this point.

Today we will be taking a look at FSimStudios Cancun International Airport for Prepar3d version 4. This airport is available on Simmarket for €19.99 or $23.26. With the purchase you get a changelog file and the installer. The installation process is as simple as selecting the Prepar3d install location, entering your key into the Simmarket registration site that pops up, and hitting “next” a few times. Once installed, a 5-page PDF user manual is available that includes a brief excerpt from Wikipedia about the airport as well as some technical data from Skyvector, credits, support information, and recommended settings.

Looking around the airport grounds, the user is greeted with nicely detailed and appropriately weathered runways, taxiways, and parking locations. As far as I could tell from google earth, the ground markings are accurate and do a good job representing the airport. It is worth noting that very few people – myself and one other according to the developer, do have an issue where the camera definitions of Chaseplane caused a major flickering to occur for large portions of taxiway and ramp area. Thanks to the support from the developer, I was guided to a forum post from a different developer’s scenery that stated to change the clipmode for Chaseplane’s Static and Gimbal camera definitions in the cameras.cfg file to Normal. Doing so completely resolved my flickering issues. Something to lookout for if you use this program.
