Xometry Releases Ponta Delgada for X-Plane 11

Xometry has today released their second scenery for X-Plane 11. This time the developers have decided to bring Ponta Delgada Airport (LPPD) to the simulator, the busiest airport in the Azores.

As far as we know, this is the first payware scenery for X-Plane 11 to cover the airport. The scenery will for sure come in handy for users of the iniBuilds A310 equipped with an Azore Airlines livery.

Although the airport has quite a short runway, it is common for long-haul flights to take off and land at the airport, even operated by big aircraft like the Airbus A340, A330, or the previously mentioned A310.

From the technical side of things, the scenery offers PBR textures, accurately placed objects, and buildings throughout the airport area and its close vicinity, realistic wear, tar, cracks and stains, or high-resolution ground textures, for example.

Further, accurately placed 3D vegetation is present throughout the scenery. This includes custom grass, bushes, and tree models. The developers from Xometry have also worked on implementing SAM Marshallers to the scenery as well as heavily edited, color corrected orthoimagery.

The scenery can be purchased through the iniBuilds Store for approximately €16.45 with taxes excluded.

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.
