Publishing house Aerosoft, in association with scenery developer SimWings, has recently released their detail-rich rendition of La Palma Airport (GCLA) for MSFS users to enjoy.
Located on the Canaries northern-most island, La Palma Airport (GCLA) is an international airport servicing its namesake island of La Palma and is operated by Spanish aviation company Aeropuertos Españoles y Navegación Aérea (AENA). The airport saw 1’420’000 passengers pass through its doors in 2018 and, in addition to servicing numerous daily inter-island connections, sees regular international services operated to multiple countries located on mainland Europe.
Even though the current airport takes advantage of modern airport equipment and facilities, getting in and out of the airport can still prove challenging even for experienced pilots due to the frequently demanding wind conditions that the island and airport can experience.
Scenery developer SimWings, in association with publisher Aerosoft, has recently released this challenging island airport for MSFS users to explore. The developer claims that the product comes included with a highly detailed rendition of La Palma (GCLA) airport, custom color-corrected aerial photography, extensive PBR texture work, and realistic dynamic night lighting, to only mention but a few.
SimWing’s La Palma Airport (GCLA) scenery is now available for purchase via the simMarket online store and will cost you €16.77 E.x. VAT. The product page does not provide any information regarding whether existing customers of the developer’s earlier released La Palma Airport (GCLA) product for P3D are eligible for a potential discount.
