Gatwick has been a constant throughout my flightsim ‘career’. I remember many years ago that it was one of, if not, the first payware airports that I purchased. I recall finding the go-around procedure particularly interesting having seen real-world operators executing that hard left or right turn heading 179 degrees climbing to 3000ft. Not only this, but I recognised this as the major hub of the airline which I grew up alongside and ultimately entered aviation with. Us flight simmers have never been quite as spoilt as we have in recent years with most airports being covered by at least two developers – a double-edged sword if you ask me. Whilst this can offer many advantages to the consumer, it leads to congestion in the market and draws attention away from potentially unique development opportunities where other developers are yet to venture.

UK2000 Scenery has ultimately, for many years, held the fort amongst simmers as being renowned for their renditions of UK & Channel Island airports. Enter Jennasoft. I first stumbled upon the company having known very little about the firm and their developments but had seen renders floating on social media. The renders offered very little information but showcased some brilliant details which I looked forward to seeing in my sim. With the length of time from announcement to the release, I lost track of the project. Then almost out of the blue, Jennasoft released Gatwick Airport with little fanfare. With my in-depth knowledge of the airport and its surroundings, I thought it was high time to see if competition for the same airport does benefit the flight sim community.

FSdreamteam Gsx
4.5
It should be noted that I received the product approximately 1 week before the public release to assist with testing of the product. The purpose of this period was to test any bugs that would be show-stoppers for releasing the product. I did report some quality issues discussed in the review prior to release. When GSX launched back in 2013,

MK-Studios has taken the simming community by storm by releasing a prolific string of scenery focusing on the Canary Islands, with their latest being Lanzarote Arrecife airport. The Canaries, as mentioned in previous reviews, are a very popular destination for travelers from all over the world due to their predominantly year round sunshine and picturesque landscape.

In this review we will be focusing on Lanzarote, the most northern of the Canary Islands located just 7 miles north east of Fuerteventura (another MK-Studios release). Often called the island of eternal spring, Lanzarote hosts a subtropical desert climate providing approximately 16 days of rainfall annually and boasting an average temperature of 24.8c. Being only a few hours flight time from the UK and central Europe, it’s no wonder that this destination – along with the other Canaries – sees high numbers of tourists.  In fact, tourism is one of the biggest contributors to the island’s economy for 40 years – second only to agriculture.

Much of Almeria’s wealth comes from agriculture and thus makes it a very busy shipping
