Windsock Simulations have today, in cooperation with Aerosoft, released their rendition of Madrid-Barajas Airport (LEMD) for X-Plane 11. First announced to be in development back in September last year, the scenery was converted and further improved from the sim-wings rendition of the airport released for Prepar3D and FSX about three years ago.

Based on the feature list attached to the product page, the scenery features custom aerial imagery not only for the airport itself, but the close vicinity as well, detailed ground markings, and dynamic night lighting.

Additionally, custom autogen buildings and vegetation are present in the airport vicinity covering about 400 squared kilometers. The scenery uses SAM plugins to ensure animated and functional jetways.

The scenery can be purchased through the Aerosoft website for approximately €23.48 with VAT excluded.

Madrid Airport, or better known as the Adolfo Suárez Madrid–Barajas Airport, is located 9km from Madrid’s financial district. It is Europe’s sixth busiest airport, and Spain’s most used. It covers an area of 7,500 acres, making it only second to Charles de Gaulle, in terms of size of airports in Europe.

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.
