It is not very often to see a solo developer release scenery products for flight simulators. Usually, there is always some company or other studio assisting in the development, especially with bigger projects like this is.
After releasing his rendition of Ben Gurion Airport (LLBG) for Prepar3D, he of course had to deliver it as well to the more recent platform, Microsoft Flight Simulator. The development of the scenery was for the first time mentioned in a Facebook post over a year ago. Since then we did not get much opportunity to get an insight into the development.
Released under the Aerosoft brand, the scenery was developed to the latest standards. It offers fully dynamic lighting across the airport area, colour-corrected ground textures, or even partially recreated terminal interiors.
For the most immersive experience, David Rosenfeld made sure to implement animated jetways for all gates and even a static EL AL 777 on the apron that is nowadays not in service anymore.
The scenery can be purchased at the Aerosoft website for €18 with VAT excluded. There is no discount or upgrade fee available for owners of the Prepar3D variant of the scenery.
Ben Gurion International Airport (LLBG) is the biggest, and main, airport in Israel. Located just between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, the airport serves as a hub for Arkia, Sun D’Or, Isair Airlines, CAL Cargo Air Lines, and El Al, the flag carrier in Israel. Annually, over 24 million passengers visit the airport. It is said to be the world’s most secure airport.
