Review: Globall Art CYYZ Scenery

Toronto Pearson International Airport (CYYZ) is the largest and busiest airport in Canada, situated 22,5km from the city center. Toronto Pearson International Airport is the main hub for Air Canada – main carrier in Canada. In 2018 Toronto Pearson International Airport handled over 40 million passengers.

Airport is currently operating 5 runways in 2 directions – 05/23; 15R/33L; 15L/33R; 06L/24R; 06R/24L. The airport has two terminals, Terminal 1 and Terminal 3. Terminal 1 with its 346,000 square meters is the largest terminal on the airport, it is mainly used by Star Alliance airlines + Emirates since there are stands for an A380.

Tarmac design

There is one thing that I generally miss in the scenery, and that is the tarmac wear design. Since tarmac is a material/place on which are planes moving on, it shouldn’t look like a brand new, but it does. Globall Art forgotten to design the wear of the tarmac, or just did a bad job with it.

Surroundings

The surrounding are very well designed – Globall Art did a really good job designing the airport surroundings. Although it might look very nice, it can kill your FPS.

Conclusion

In conclusion, for 30 USD you should think about the purchase. In my opinion, Globall Art should spend more time designing the grass and tarmac since that is really bad in comparison with other sceneries. If I should mark it from 0 to 10 I would give it a 6 out of 10. I took away those points because of the lack of details and the hardware requirements, which can sometimes ruin the effect of good looking scenery.

If you want to buy this scenery, you can do so in X-Plane store.

Important: Scenery lacks 3D grass.

I've been a flight sim enthusiast for some time now, and I've always enjoyed flying to various destinations all over the world. My favourite airport is by far Corfu with its scenic and challenging approach. I founded FSNews in May 2019.
