L. F. Wade International airport is the unique airport serving Bermuda, a British overseas territory, located in the North Atlantic Ocean. Although usually referred to in the singular, the territory consists of 181 islands, with a total area of 53.3 square kilometers (20.6 sq mi). The largest island is Main Island, sometimes itself called Bermuda.

Bermuda was discovered originally by Spanish explorer Juan de Bermudez, in 1505. For the next century, the island is believed to have been visited frequently but not settled. Intentional settlement of Bermuda began in 1612. St George's was settled in 1612 and made Bermuda's first capital. It is the oldest continually inhabited English town in the New World. Usually known as “Pocahontas” story tale, Bermuda first history was narrated by John Smith.

In 1615, the colony was passed to a new company, the Somers Isles Company (The Somers Isles remains an official name for the colony, named after Admiral Somers, just as Gate's Bay and Fort Gates are named after Sir Thomas Gates), formed by the same shareholders. The close ties with Virginia were commemorated even after Bermuda's separation by reference to the archipelago in many Virginian place names, such as Bermuda City, and Bermuda Hundred. The first British coins in America were struck here.

The airfield began life as Kindley Field, a joint US Army Air Forces (USAAF)/Royal Air Force (RAF) base, during the Second World War. The RAF forces in Bermuda were withdrawn at the end of the War. The local RAF Commander, however, stayed on, on loan to the Bermuda Government, and converted the RAF facilities into the Civil Air Terminal, operated by the local government. When the pre-War airport, a flying boat facility on Darrell's Island, closed in 1948, Bermuda's air routes were taken over by land planes operating through the airfield, which by then was operated by the United States Air Force, as Kindley Air Force Base.

In 1970, the field was transferred to the United States Navy, which operated it as US Naval Air Station, Bermuda until 1995 when the US Navy terminated its 99-year lease and the field was transferred to the Bermuda Government, which now operates the airport as part of the Ministry of Tourism & Transport.

L. F. Wade International Airport has one passenger terminal, one cargo terminal, eight aircraft stands and can support all aircraft sizes up to and including the Airbus 380.
Currently, ten airlines operate seasonal or year-round scheduled services to Bermuda Airport from Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

    I am Bermudian, a PVT Pilot,flt.flt. sim buf, and am employed at bermuda Intl. Airport.
The screen shots look great except for a few glaring errors, example the departure area of the main terminal shows grass and palm trees, instead of the roadway adjacent to the building. The City of Hamilton , lacks the Parliment , and Catherdal Church buildings which are very prominent, also lack the very prominent Southampton Princess hotel. Good job on te hanger where I work. like the control tower,buildings and very good renditions of the main terminal apron ,and aprons 2,3, and 4 , also cycle racing track next to apron 5.
looking to purchase a copy, and will further comment.

    Great scenery, great frame rates and a huge amount of autogen buildings, ships and boats covering the islands. This is from just using the FS2004 version - I haven't tried the FSX version yet but I am sure it is as good if not better! Latin VFR have, in my opinion, now joined the developers at the top of the league for high quality FS2004 scenery. Highly recommended.

    The quality is fantastic,

However, the performance of the autogen tree's is really poor. Pending a fix for the next update!

    I have relatives that live in Bermuda and have visited often so was pleased to see that the island had been created for FSX. The photo scenery creates a good impresssion of the island and the airport and adjacent area are very well done including the causeway and Grotto Bay Hotel. Also the autogen placement across the island seems to be quite meticulas. My only critisism is that not enough major landmarks have been created, such as the Southampton And Hamilton Princess hotels. Also Hamilton would look better with at least the cathedral modelled and even a generic power station added. With these few additions I would have given it 5 stars.
Forgot to mention the dockyard was also very good.
