Spotted by one of our writers yesterday, there was a very conspicuous post on the X-Plane.org forums, which seemed to be from a FlyTampa developer. The post in question was asking why there wasn’t a good Las Vegas (KLAS) scenery for X-Plane 11. A few comments in and a familiar name popped up in the comments suggesting that they were “pushing” to have Las Vegas, along with other airports, to come to the platform.
Being the careful media outlet we are, we reached out to FlyTampa and have now had it confirmed that g.emilios is, in fact, the esteemed FlyTampa developer of the same name. In our email, he said, “the post is true”.
To quote the forum post:
“I personally loved X-Plane during Corfu development, so we are trying to push Copenhagen/Amsterdam/Vegas into XPlane within the next months”
It was made clear that the airports wouldn’t necessarily be developed in that particular order, but that the FlyTampa team are keen to bring those airports across to the platform. This news follows on from their previous statement they wanted other airports, but at the time did not clarify which airports were under consideration.
In related news, further previews of Athens was shared today for X-Plane 11 and it was re-confirmed that Athens V2 for Prepar3D is still very much in development.
