27788892 1981435365218431 5911751915410299116 O

FlyTampa have been incredibly busy this year compared to past years. With the release of Boston earlier this year followed by their first X-Plane release, Corfu, you would be forgiven to think they would be on the down-low for a little while. Well, you’re mistaken as they have just released a bunch of new updates for a range of their airports to include SODE jetways as well as improvements and other bug fixes. Based on the availability table over at FlyTampa, these updates are only for Prepar3D V4.

The airports impacted are as follows: Boston Rebooted, Vienna, Toronto, St Maarten and Saba. All of the updates are free of charge for current customer. It’s also been mentioned that the installers are available at SimMarket already.

St Maarten

Probably one of the biggest updates included in these new packages. Version 1.9 includes SODE jetways, safegates, brand new and updated ground pavement textures and markings, as well as rain effects, wavespray and dynamic lighting.

Full change log and download link at the FlyTampa forums.


FlyTampa has added island photoscenery and autogen, as well as brand new airport 3D terrain for a more immersive experience. Just like St Maarten, dynamic lighting, wavespray effects and static GA aircraft have all been added. Saba is also version 1.9.

FlyTampa Boston-Rebooted: The FSElite Review

Flytampa Kbos Review FEATURED Image
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

FlyTampa: “Pigs might fly after all”, Scenery Developer Hints At X-Plane Market Entry

29356470 2028274830534484 1146756680348860416 O

FlyTampa has dropped the strongest hint yet that their entry into the X-Plane scenery market may not be far off at all, using Facebook to tease what appears to be their first product for the platform.

Recently we’ve seen a number of prominent, high-quality developers traditionally from the FSX/P3D world making the move to introduce their products to the X-Plane market.
Orbx released their first product for X-Plane in the form of Meigs Field (which FSElite will be taking a look at in-depth soon) not too long ago and was snapped up in droves by X-Plane users excited to see what the company was able to bring to the table.
Now with FlyTampa making their move, it only goes to show that X-Plane is a market that developers cannot ignore.

There’s no news on what the first X-Plane-based FlyTampa product will be, nor when we can expect it, but keen-eyed readers may be able to work this one out.
If you think you know what it is, be sure to leave your words of wisdom in the comments!

FSElite will keep you updated on any further news on this exciting development.
