When you think of challenging approaches within Europe, your mind probably immediately rushes the likes of Innsbruck, Funchal and Gibraltar. They certainly do pose a challenge and all three of those airports present their own difficulties for pilots in any condition. However, there are still countless other airports within Europe that also give a similar challenge but are often overlooked.

Tivat Airport in Montenegro is one of those airports that offer similar challenges to those mentioned above, along with stunning views of the mountains as you make some tough approaches over the coastal city and surrounding regions. Having visited there in real life just two years ago, I can vividly remember the hot sunshine beating down on my face as I watched multiple aircraft take on the low approach coming into the airport.

Digital Design, known for some incredible sceneries in the past, surprised everyone just a few short weeks ago by announcing that they were bringing this airport to Prepar3D V4. The eager beaver I am, I immediately downloaded it as soon as it was available and I have been reminiscing about my summer holiday ever since. The question is, how well did they do in bringing this hidden gem to the simulator?

Orbx Olbia Costa Smeralda Airport: The FSElite Review

ORBX Olbia Review
9
Olbia from Orbx finally breaks the trend of developing airports for FSX and legacy versions of Prepar3D. Olbia has been developed and created specifically with Prepar3D v4 in mind, and it really benefits from this. I have been seeing a common trend in other Orbx products that they are starting to feel hampered by the restrictions of development on other

Flightbeam Studios Wellington: The FSElite Review

Wellington
9.5
It’s the land of kiwis, hobbits and unprecedented natural beauty. It’s also the country of Flightbeam Studios’ latest scenery. Of course, I’m talking about nothing other than the wonderful country of New Zealand. For an area of the world that receives so little love, it’s great to see some developers give it some attention. Luckily Orbx has done this in
