Aerosoft Airport Genoa (LIMJ) for X-Plane 11 Released

Announced on their blog, Aerosoft has released their much-anticipated Airport Genoa “Cristoforo Colombo” add-on scenery for X-Plane 11 developed by Gayasim in collaboration with Stairport Sceneries.

Genoa Cristoforo Colombo Airport is built on an artificial peninsula 4 nautical miles west of Genoa, Italy. It is known for its scenic view of the Ligurian Sea on approach which you’ll experience in the sim with animated ships included. Many well-known airlines operate out of here to destinations throughout Europe such as Paris, London, Moscow, Madrid and Frankfurt.
