Taxi2Gate Releases Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport for P3Dv4-5

Taxi2gate Paris Charles De Gaulle P3d (1)

Taxi2Gate has released a new version of their Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport for Prepar3D v4 and v5. Charles de Gaulle Airport (LFPG) is the main airport in France and serves over 76 million passengers each year. The airport serves as a hub for flag carrier Air France, but also sees plenty of traffic from easyJet, Norwegian, KLM and many other global carriers. The huge concourse, a large number of runways and various parking spots mean that aircraft of any size can visit the airport and simmers can fly to virtually almost any virtual location from Europe’s second buisest airport.

The new release includes custom ground textures and photo scenery, whilst ensuring that performance is optimised for various hardware. The team has included many airport buildings, with some of the terminals also featuring interior modelling. Other features include static objects, an accurate AFCAD based on the current layout and also SODE jetways. Finally, the airport has been built using PBR textures, which is an improvement over the 2017 original from Taxi2Gate.

Originally, Taxi2Gate released Charles De Gaulle Airport for Prepar3D back in 2017 for FSX and P3D, but this new version brings the airport to a more modern standard and is compatible with more modern simulators. Those who do own the original 2017 product can update to this 2021 release for €15.00 on simMarket. However, if you’re looking to purchase and you don’t own the original, it will cost you €26.99 (excluding taxes).

Jetstream Designs Paris Orly Release Date Announced

JSD LFPO 1012 1 (16) FSElite

With Jetstream Designs Paris Orly looking so close to being finished in the previews we’ve seen so far, many have been wondering when we will be able to see Orly in our sims. Today, I’m happy to report that we finally have an answer! Announced over on the Jetstream Designs Facebook page, it was said that the team is shooting for a release between the 28th and 31st of this month!

Announced back in February of this year, Jetstream Designs’ upcoming Paris Orly  has certainly been one of the most anticipated scenery releases of this year, and for good reason. With Aerosoft’s rendition now outdated and incompatible with the latest versions of P3D, the airport was in desperate need of a new rendition. Since the announcement, previews of the airport have been eagerly, and readily, provided by the team, and we must say it looks quite stunning; the fact that all the new extensions to the terminals will be modelled is just icing on the cake at this point.

Along with the release date announcement, it was said that, “the scenery is pretty much done. We still have a few things to add, some tuning to do, and then start beta testing.” No doubt with the recent advent of P3D v.4 and its new PBR support, many will be wondering if Paris Orly will be releasing with PBR textures for P3D v4.4, and Jetstream has provided an answer. PBR textures will most likely not be making it into the initial release, due to the increased time and a possibility of a delayed release, but they see no reason why it couldn’t be added in a future update.

That’s all for now, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted on anything else regarding Jetstream Designs Paris Orly. (A bunch of new, high-res screenshots of the scenery in action can be found below as well)

It's been 8 years since Aerosoft treated us with their rendition of Paris Charles de Gaulle for FSX. Now that addon is hopelessly old and performance is not something to be very happy about. Therefor you can understand how excited we all got when we heard that one of our favourite addon creators, Taxi2Gate, known for making amazingly detailed and incredibly well
