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.
