Airport Madrid XP Released

Airport Madrid XP has been released for X-Plane 11. Developed initially by Sim-Wings, and ported by Windsock Simulations, the airport is a full recreation of the busy Spanish airport in the simulator. As the largest airport in Spain, and the sixth in Europe, Madrid–Barajas Airport (LEMD) serves over 60 million passengers each year. The airport features 4 runways all over 3,500m in length, meaning that aircraft of any size can visit throughout the year. Madrid is home to Spain’s national carrier, Iberia, but also sees airlines such as Ryanair, Wizz Air, easyJet and Air Europa offering routes around Europe and the USA. Those seeking long-haul adventures from the airport can fly American Airlines, Emirates, Cathay Pacific and plenty of others.

The airport has been faithfully recreated in X-Plane 11 and brings with it a range of features unique to the simulator. In total, 400 km squared of aerial imagery has been included to ensure that the scenery blends with the simulator well, whilst all of the airport terminals and buildings have been included with the product. Detailed ground markings are also present, and the airport layout is accurate based on current data. Furthermore, the team has worked with Ortho4XP to include a custom mesh patch to ensure complete compatibility with the simulator.

Windsock Simulations Announces Madrid Airport for XPL

Windsock Simulations Madrid Xpl

Scenery developer Windsock Simulations will be returning to Spain for their next project. The capital of Spain, Madrid, is home to one of the largest airports in the country; Madrid-Barajas Adolfo Suárez Airport (LEMD). The airport sees airliners from around the world visit the airport on a regular occurrence bringing leisure and business travellers from near and afar to the Spanish capital.

Windsock Simulations, known for their conversions of Prepar3D scenery over to X-Plane announced the news on Facebook. The plan for the team is to start the conversion in September, whilst working with Maps2XPlane who will support building the mesh files required for the busy airport. The development team will provide ongoing updates over the next few weeks and months whilst development continues, but did say that this is a large airport (3 times bigger than anything else they’ve done), so it will take some time.

In the meantime, Windsock Simulations did share a sneak preview of what to expect from the product.

In recent news, Windsock Simulations released Barcelona XP for X-Plane 11 via Aerosoft and also announced that users can expect an update to the airport software in the next 24 hours.
