Just Flight has recently taken to their social network profiles and website to share a new set of previews showcasing their upcoming rendition of Palma de Mallorca Airport (LEPA) for Microsoft Flight Simulator, and to update the community on the current development status.
It was mentioned in the post, that due to the recently released Sim Update 5 the developers had to change plans a bit and delay the release of the scenery that was expected this month. As the post said: “We’re now waiting on various fixes to help us get this over the line.“.
The developers additionally wrote: “All was going well and pointing towards a mid-August release until you know what happened! Yep, the SU5 came along. This introduced several problems for third party sceneries.“
We have done extensive testing regarding these issues and have come to the conclusion that they can only be rectified by Asobo themselves. We have reached out but so far to no avail.Just Flight’s Palma de Mallorca scenery developers
In terms of everything else, the developers have mentioned, that it’s all done now. There are currently only issues with the jetways and the visual docking guidance system (VDGS) which are no longer functioning correctly due to Sim Update 5.
Although we don’t have any new information on the release date and pricing details, the developers have briefly outlined the main features of the scenery in previous posts. These include: a reworked Visual Guidance Docking System (VGDS), custom-built air bridges, a custom coded ILS, accurate taxiways, adjusted terrain, and accurate night lighting including all spotlights.
Palma de Mallorca Airport is located 8km east of Palma, the capital of the Balearic Islands. This frenetic hub is listed as the third business airport of Spain and mainly serves holidaymakers coming from different corners of Europe. It also serves as the main hub for Spanish airline Air Europa and as a focus hub for Ryanair, EasyJet, Vueling, and Jet2.com.
