LatinVFR Releases AREX Europe

Latinvfr Arex Europe Msfs (3)

LatinVFR continues to release new products for Microsoft Flight Simulator, with their latest being AREX Europe. Building on the release of the North American version, this version focuses on Europe, Russia and also the Arctic.

The utility add-on includes logos and skins for most of Europe’s ground handling and catering companies and injects realistic-looking vehicles into airports in the region. This includes push back trucks, airport traffic and service equipment such as the ground power unit. Further to the replacement of ground service equipment looks, customised sounds for animations have also been added to the vehicles. The exact companies included with this product wasn’t specified, but we can see from the screenshots that the likes of Swissport, Aeroflot, Royal Mail, LSG and Air BP are all included.

It is worth noting that the plan is for AREX to work in conjunction with GSX by FSDreamTeam for Microsoft Flight Simulator and this is not a replacement tool for that type of add-on.

You can buy LatinVFR’s AREX Europe from Contrail, simMarket and the LatinVFR store for €7.10 / $8.49 (excluding taxes).

We reviewed AREX North America, which you can watch here.
