LatinVFR Releases Santiago Chile Airport for MSFS

Latinvfr Santiago Scel Msfs (3)

Scenery developer LatinVFR has released Santiago Chile Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Serving as the busiest airport in Chile, Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport (SCEL) is one of the main gateways to South America. Many airlines from South America, North America, Oceania and Europe frequent the airport on a regular basis. Its location in the world means that flights are often long and span many hours, particularly those to Europe. The airport is most commonly known as Santiago International Airport and serves airlines such as JetSmart, LATAM Chile and SKY, but sees plenty of traffic from others such as British Airways, KLM, United Airlines and Iberia.

Sparing no detail, LatinVFR has included a range of features that we have now come to expect from the developer. This includes custom-made and detailed ground and building textures (all with PBR), realistic airport lighting, and all taxiways and aprons in accordance with current charts. Furthermore, where applicable, the team has included customised jetways which can attach to your aircraft. Interior modelling is also included, but the team made sure that the airport is optimised for the best performance.

LatinVFR’s Santiago Chile Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator can be purchased from LatinVFR’s own store ($17.99), Contrail (€15.08) and simMarket (€17.99). All prices exclude any taxes. If you own the P3D version of the airport, you will be entitled to a discount on LatinVFR’s store (with code: SCELMSFS), or it will automatically be deducted if purchasing through simMarket (providing you own the product in your account).

FSElite Exclusive: LatinVFR First PBR Previews of Santiago SCELv2

With the excitement of Prepar3D V4.4 now starting to die down, developers are starting to pour development efforts into seeing how they can use the new PBR technology in their products. Leonardo Software has already began showing their progress with their MD-XX series, and FSDreamteam with their upcoming Chicago O’Hare. Today, LatinVFR contacted me to inform me that they have been working on updating their current P3DV4 scenery library to include the new PBR texture set.

The first product to be upgraded to include the new textures will be Santiago SCELv2. The product was originally released earlier last month to positive community reviews. The team has since been working on how they can implement the new technology and have given us the first glimpse into how it looks. Developer Ricardo described Prepar3D V4.4 as a “game changer” and is “very surprised they added this on a current version of P3D.”

The below screenshots offer a direct comparison between PBR materials being used and the legacy version. The difference is pretty staggering, especially during the low-sun shots where the light is bouncing off of the floor.
