FlyTampa is completely prepar3d for V4, and has made updates available for all airports that weren’t working right off the bat. You can find the downloads over here. Note that they will need to be applied manually! Great to see developers getting their products ready so quickly. I was already afraid that I’d have to go without a good rendition of Amsterdam Schiphol again..
FlyTampa have revealed the first preview shot of their recently announced Las Vegas. FlyTampa Las Vegas is the latest scenery from the team who developed Amsterdam and Corfu in recent years. Both of which have been highly praised for their quality and craftsmanship, so as you expect, Las Vegas looks stunning.
The image was shared on Facebook and has already received much attention from the team.
No further details were shared but we’ll do some digging to find out some more.
Thanks to everyone for contacting us about it!
Finally! After two months of very little word on this update, FlyTampa have finally released an updated installer with fixes for some issues that have been plaguing users of this addon. Of course, many of these issues had already been fixed in the forums themselves but now we finally have an installer! You can find the full changelog down below. I’m very happy to see that some issues I pointed out in my review have been fixed, such as missing landmarks in Amsterdam. A bit of a shame there is still no SODE support for the dual jetways though. You can grab the update from the FlyTampa forums.

Update 22:30z 08JAN 2017 – AirDailyX has added further information to the project information. Turns out that the entire Las Vegas strip will be included in the airport package as well. This means all hotels, resorts and casinos. Not only the strip, but we can expect the entire city of Vegas with all the goodies we’d expect from a FlyTampa product.
After their staggering release of Amsterdam late last year, many have been wondering where in the world FlyTampa would head to next. Well, if you head over to their website now, you will see a brand new ‘blue’ dot highlighting their airport selection. The geographers among you will already know this is the Entertainment Capital of the World: Las Vegas!
No further details yet. Yes, I even tried http://www.flytampa.org/klas.html following on from their usual URL style. But no such luck!
It’s the worlds fifth busiest airport, has 6 runways to serve traffic from literally every wind direction, serves one of the worlds biggest air fleets and recently celebrated its 100th birthday. Obviously I’m talking about Schiphol airport. It’s been almost two years since FlyTampa announced a new project on their forums which was quickly recognised as the famous airport. After some much anticipated previews, many questions about the progress and sometimes even doubts whether the airport would still release, it’s finally here.
FlyTampa Amsterdam is released!
After months of teasing, FlyTampa have surprise released Amsterdam Schiphol airport.
Of course, the area around the airport is made up of custom buildings, 3D Terrain and bridges, photo scenery for the city itself and animated apron and road traffic. We’ve downloaded it already for a review!
You can buy it now from FlyTampa’s website for 28.00eur.
Here’s the full feature list:
-Amsterdam Schiphol International (EHAM) airport scenery
-Detailed surrounding scenery with numerous custom buildings
-3D Terrain including 3D tunnels and bridges
-Pre-rendered self-shadowing and custom reflection maps
-Surrounding Photo-scenery for Amsterdam city
-3D night city lighting
-Animated apron and local road traffic
-Static vehicles and objects
FlyTampa are renown for their attention to detail and it appears Amsterdam is shaping up to be taking things to the next level.
From the single screenshot provided above, you can quite clearly see the level of detail the boys are going to.
Something worth noting, the ING advert says “Flight Sim…Here I Come”. We’re pretty sure that was never an actual advert, so can we expect this sooner than later?
If we know what FlyTampa’s release cycle is like, then it would be a good assumption that we may not be as far off as people would like us to think.
FlyTampa have shown off another sneak peak of their upcoming Amsterdam scenery.
It looks amazing already and we can’t wait to see some more detailed shots!
