TropicalSim seem to have a knack for being able to release multiple sceneries for FSX and P3D almost every month. With the release of P3D v4, they went back and took a look at some sceneries that could do with a well-needed update for v4, and this is where we find Porto. With the previous version of Porto released in 2014, compatible with FS9, FSX and P3D v2, a P3D v4 update was greatly needed.

Porto International Airport is currently the second busiest airport in Portugal, located in the municipalities of Maia, Matosinhos and Vila do Conde, just 11km northwest of Porto itself. The airport has an array of interesting routes, with airlines including Easyjet, Ryanair, TAP Air Portugal along with its subsidiary TAP Express. This means that LPPR hosts a wide variety of flights around Europe from short-haul to medium-haul length. Porto’s Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport has a modern, spacious terminal, which has ranked within Europe’s top three airports numerous times.

The airport is positioned in very close proximity to the Costa Verde coastline, with surrounding greenery on one side of the airport, and the sea on the other. I especially recommend doing the 17 approach over the city, with the coastline on your right hand side, allowing for some charming views.

Turbulent Designs has been making waves in the flight sim community for some time now. Whether it’s developing stunning mountain airports, busy inter-city hubs, or utility products to enhance the quality of the trees within the sim. The next big thing for these guys was developing exclusively for 64-bit platforms only. Not long after the release of Prepar3D V4 they

FlyTampa Boston-Rebooted: The FSElite Review

Flytampa Kbos Review FEATURED Image
9.1
FlyTampa is, without a doubt, a household name within the world of flight simulation. They have continuously provided the community with high-quality airport scenery packages and often pushed the limits of what was deemed possible within a simulator. When FlyTampa released Boston originally for FS2004 and FSX all those years ago, no one thought it would get any better. In

The Boeing 757: an iconic aircraft for many different reasons. Designed for both short and medium haul flights, while remaining perfectly capable of crossing the Atlantic, there just isn’t anything else quite like this beautiful narrow-body twin-engine jet. With a limited amount of planes built compared to other Boeings, and only a handful of operators still using it, the plane has well-deserved its iconic status.

You can imagine how happy we were when Captain Sim announced that they were working on an update to their 757. With all the aircraft we have for our sims, it seems like this one just never quite got the love it deserved. And what was there just didn’t hold up anymore in today’s age of 64 bit simulation.

Leonardo SH Fly The Maddog X: The FSElite Review

Review Image
9.5
The Fly The Maddog 2008 and later 2010 Professional was an iconic Maddog add-on from the FS2004 days. It was far ahead of its time, offering multi-crew abilities, in-depth study level systems and more. It eventually made its way to FSX and remained the go-to MD80 add-on. With the release and subsequent major boom where P3D became the main platform

Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport is an incredibly busy airport; it’s the busiest and biggest airport in the world. It has about a million aircraft movements and more than 100 million passengers every year. It’s a major hub for Southwest, but Delta is the main airline in Atlanta. Atlanta is also jokingly called “Delta International Airport”. The airport has about 300
