The German Airports Team are again setting new standards in terms of quality, realism, and friendly frame rates with their complete overhaul of the German Airports 3 package. All airports are developed according to their actual status with all buildings, objects installments and navigational aids representing the real life airports. Airports included are Hamburg, Bremen, Berlin-Tegel, Paderborn-Lippstadt and Luebeck.
Built on high resolution aerial images the airports and their surroundings show an absolute realistic image of the real world. Another highlight is the use of the Dynamic Airport Enhancement Services. The services ensure dynamic traffic on the apron and surrounding roads and motorways creating a lively atmosphere.

Nice little upgrade, my earlier review with the minor criticm stands.
But with my Quadcore, average graphic card system, FPS goes up around 20% on all included airports with most scenery sliders (except traffic) maxed out.
Of course still highly recommended if you look for well made german airports.
Note, only tested in VFR flights with GA aircraft.

All airports buildings are made with good attention to detail, having been to most of the airports irl it definitely is close to the real thing. Some airports are over 4 years old by now, so a few details have naturally changed since.
Plenty of eye candy on the apron, most notably the dynamic AESLite fleet giving extra life to the surroundings. Good frame rates on my FSX installation, only Hamburg (the biggest in the lot) may pose a performance risk to weaker PCs
I noticed a few minor irritations, like sparse and sloppy texturing in the immediate surroundings around the Bremen airport, so following the tram in my trike into the city is quite irritating since it does not have the crisp environment it deserves, not even when close to the airport.
Overall however, if you are city hopping in central Europe, this set is super value for money, no doubt. A solid package in any European airport collection.
