Head-To-Head: Palma De Mallorca Airport (LEPA) – Aerosoft, JustSim and MK-Studios

Palma Comparison Mk Studios Aerosoft Justsim

Palma De Mallorca is one of the most popular summer destinations in Europe. With all kinds of airlines from all over the world visiting, it makes for an exciting destination for simmers. From low-cost carriers to charters and premium airlines, Palma De Mallorca is a very popular airport. So popular it seems, that three different developers found it worthwhile to create the airport in our flight simulators. Those three developers are Aerosoft (developed by SimWings), JustSim (developed together with Digital Design) and most recently, MK-Studios.

In this head-to-head article, we’re going to look at various aspects of the airports and its surrounding area to see which developer offers the best value for money, which is the most detailed and whether it would be worth buying a second or third copy of the same airport.

With 2020 destined to be the year in which many things in the flight simulation space change, we’re looking to you as a community to discuss who you really want to see exhibit this year at the show. Fans all over the world enjoy meeting these developers face-to-face to ask questions, find out about the newest products or to simply say thank you. The full list of those so far confirmed are down below, but we would love to see which developers do you think are missing from the FlightSimExpo 2020 exhibitor list?

Evan made it clear in our video interview that the more vocal the community is about their favourite developer attending the show, the higher the likelihood of them attending will be. Whether you leave a comment below, contact the developer directly or simply discuss it in public spaces, eventually, the message will be heard by them and hopefully, they’ll make the trip to Las Vegas in June.
