FSElite Exclusive: PILOT’S Almeria in X-Plane 11

Fse Almeria Screenshots Pilots (8)

PILOT’S version of Almeria in P3D/FSX is a good product. It’s packed full of features and the free update made it even better. However, we know that X-Plane 11 users are just as keen to hop into the Spanish destination. Whilst development still continues, we have a few beta screenshots of the product. Right now, the orthophoto is finishing up, and then work on the final polish will take place.

The shots below were taken by the developers of the scenery and provided to us to show you a quick glance at what’s to come. As development continues, we’ll continue to share with you the progress.

Don’t forget, you can buy PILOT’S Almeria for P3D/FSX now via their store.

Almeria is the latest in a string of scheduled releases by the developer Latinwings. Currently Almeria is only available from the PILOT’S store for 24.99 Euros.  Almeria is located in the southeast of Spain on the coast of the Mediterranean situated between Malaga and Murcia. Much of Almeria’s wealth comes from agriculture and thus makes it a very busy shipping hub. The airport is relatively young as far as airports are considered and has many scheduled operators including easyJet, Vueling, Iberia and Air Europa. Other notable airlines who operate a seasonal schedule include TUI, Ryanair, British Airways, Thomas Cook and Transavia. Aeropuerto de Almería has one 3200m runway numbered 07/25 and is more than capable of accommodating the larger aircraft variants.

I’ve been following this project closely and have been enjoying the previews and screenshots, so I was looking forward to testing it out in the sim. When I had first loaded the simulator at Almeria and was parked adjacent to the Ryanair in the final stages of boarding, I was amazed to see passengers queuing to board under the small canopy. Granted they weren’t actually boarding and were static but for that brief moment it all felt very real. I was pleased to see the self maneuvering stands working as they should, and the level of detail on the aircraft ground labels is staggering . Using avatar mode and adjusting my viewpoint I was able to recreate a view I’d seen many times before when flying into Almeria with work and I can assure you the only thing missing was the breeze and the smell!

Performance at Almeria is very good. I experienced very stable FPS during various stages of the approach, landing and go around – even whilst performing low approaches typically performed in air shows along the port with a visual final turn.
