Stairport Sceneries Previews Istanbul for X-Plane 11

Stairport Sceneries, a well-known X-Plane 11 and Microsoft Flight Simulator developer, has previewed their rendition of Istanbul Havalimani International Airport (LTFM) for X-Plane 11.

Istanbul Havalimani is one of the worlds largest international airports, located near Istanbul, Turkey. It is located on the European side of the city. The airport has the ambition to be the worlds largest international airport and is now served mainly by Turkish Airlines, Lufthansa or Emirates. The airport replaced the older Istanbul Ataturk International Airport back in 2018.

The airport scenery itself is going to have a variety of features such as photorealistic textures of the airport buildings and vehicles, custom 3D jetway signs, animated vehicles taking care of the life-like feeling of the scenery, custom hand-placed surroundings for as much accurate result and much more.

My aviation enthusiasm started back in March 2016 and since then I fly almost every day when I have time. I always like to discover new places or new things. The vehicles or any kind of technical things always fascinated me. As I was younger, I was also a journalist in a school magazine, so when I got an opportunity to write articles about my favorite hobby, I immediately jumped in.
