In this video, I give my review of the P3D v4 version of Gaya Simulations’ Vienna International Airport. We will take a look at the airport modeling, textures, special features, seasonal variation, performance, and more.

Overall Summary
The airport can cater to a wide variety of simmers from short-haul to long haul and cargo ops. Despite a few minor issues that could be fixed with an update, the airport has more good things going for it than bad and if fixed it will be one of the better airports out there. With that in mind, its price is also up there even surpassing many other top tier developers. If these minor issues mentioned are corrected and the performance improved, I could see that cost being justified, however, I feel like in its current state it could be sold for a few dollars less given that it doesn't necessarily bring anything new or revolutionary to the table, it's just a great looking airport at this point.
