The Archipelago of the Azores is composed of nine volcanic islands situated in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean. The Portuguese archipelago is located about 1,500 km (930 mi) west from Lisbon and about 3,900 km (2,400 mi) east from the east coast of North America. The archipelago, and economic exclusion zone, forms the Autonomous Region of the Azores, one of the two autonomous regions of Portugal. Its main industries are: agriculture, dairy farming (for cheese and butter products primarily), minor livestock ranching, fishing and tourism, which is becoming the major service activity in the region.

There are nine major Azorean islands and an islet cluster, in three main groups. These are Flores and Corvo, to the west; Graciosa, Terceira, São Jorge, Pico and Faial in the centre; and São Miguel, Santa Maria and the Formigas Reef to the east. These extend for more than 600 km (370 mi) and lie in a northwest-southeast direction. The vast extent of the islands defines an immense exclusive economic zone of 1,100,000 km2 (420,000 sq mi). The westernmost point of this area is 3,380 km (2,100 mi) from the North American continent. All of the islands have volcanic origins, although some, such as Santa Maria, have had no historical activity since the islands were settled. Mount Pico, on the island of Pico, is the highest point in Portugal, at 2,351 m (7,713 ft) in altitude. The Azores are actually the peaks of several of the tallest mountains on the planet, as measured from their base at the bottom of the ocean, breaking the surface of the Atlantic.

These 9 islands have naturally evolved into three recognizable groups located within the Azores Platform; they are:

The Eastern Group (Grupo Oriental) of São Miguel, Santa Maria and Formigas Islets
The Central Group (Grupo Central) of Terceira, Graciosa, São Jorge, Pico and Faial
The Western Group (Grupo Ocidental) of Flores and Corvo.

Pico Island (Ilha do Pico, in Portuguese), is an island in the Central Group of the Portuguese Azores noted for its eponymous volcano, Ponta do Pico, which is the highest mountain in Portugal, the Azores, and the highest elevation of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. In the tradition of the Portuguese poet, Raul Brandão, Pico is referred to as the Ilha Preta ("Black Island"), for its black volcanic earth, responsible for its UNESCO-designated historical vineyards that allowed the development of the island.

The island is 17.5 km south of São Jorge and just 7 km east of Faial, in the Cental Group of islands, an area that is colloquially known as o Triangulo (The Triangle). Pico is 46 kilometers long, and at its maximum extent about 16 kilometers wide, rising from its center to the west in the summit of the stratovolcano of Pico; making it the second largest of the Azores islands. Along the central plain of volcano cones to the eastern coast the landscape is pitted with the remnants of craters and lake-filled cones, and dominated by the ancient volcano of Topo.

SATA Air Açores serves Ponta Delgada, from Pico, while TAP Air Portugal has regular flights to Lisbon.

SDG - CAIRO INTL AIRPORT V2 HECA FSX P3D
Jürgen Weerelds
Sir Baher did it again. He did it again and will do it again, thank you sir Baher for this beautiful internatonal airport. 5 stars
TAXI2GATE - MUNICH AIRPORT EDDM FSX P3D
Rafal Haczek
I didn't buy Taxi2Gate Munich right when it was released, as I wanted to read initial impressions from other simmers. Those were mixed, to be honest. Many people pointed out numerous bugs. So I decided to wait for an official service pack and I actually bought the product only after the new patched version had been offered. Fir-
st the pros of the scenery. I fly to/from Munich a lot and my Aerosoft MA Munich got very old. The T2G version of EDDM looks definitely better. Visuals, especially modeling and texturing of the terminal buildings, are top notch, as it usually is with this developer. Apron animations, 3D grass, parked cars/buses/stai-
rs and generally lots of details make this scenery really pretty. Also taking into account the size and complexity of the airport, it performs really well. I could get much higher FPS than e.g. at DD EPWA, which is considerably smaller. Plus, I guess, most of the initial bugs have been fixed quite quickly, which is another good point. Now the cons. I have a feeling Taxi2Gate does not use any beta testers, as 90% of the initial and remaining bugs are obvious and conspicuous. Now, in the new version, there are still some wrong taxiway/rwy signs, some flickering textures, as well as some contrasting low/high res textures (like the roads coming under the bridges). Also the jetways could do with some better alignment on the aircraft's doors (like FT has) though, on the other hand, it is good they are offered at all (many developers don't model them). All in all, I find it to be a great-looking, modern and well-performing scenery addon. Hoping to see the remaining bugs fixed and looking forward to Paris CDG!

A great improvement upon the former edition. Gald in having seen solved some weird problem, possibily due to some incompatibility between P3D v2.5 and v3.1.
JUSTSIM - LINZ AUSTRIA BLUE DANUBE AIRPORT LOWL FSX P3D
Alex Alexeev
Very nice scenery, excellent optimization, I set all settings on Ultra and simulation gave me 50 fps with PMDG 737. Highly recommended, as well as other scenery of this company.

Enormous frame-rate killer especially at night and really not worth the money!
AEROSOFT - NIGHT ENVIRONMENT - BRITISH ISLES FSX P3D (DOWNLOAD)
Mark Tyrrell
It looks good. Appropriate 3D lighting, but overcrowded in the scenery. Aerosoft should have placed lighting over towns,cities and villages only. Though when I purchased this software it has caused an error message that says; "Your computer has run out of memory". Worthwhile if you have a top notch system, but no good if you low memory.

@Yancy Wagemans: "A / T" is correct and it means "Autopilot / Throttle" (autothrottle)
AFS-DESIGN - AIRBUS A350 FAMILY V2 FSX
Yancy Wagemans
If you want an A350 for the sake of having an A350 then go for it. Until the one day a higher quality A350 addon comes out then I guess this would suffice. This product still needs a lot of work. VC buttons get confusing, I'd add a new Rolls Royce Trent sound set (courtesy of TSS). A/P button is the A/T button for some reason. I added the Airbus GPWS callouts as it was not part of the product, also edited the A/P disconnect sound to the traditional Airbus "cavalry charge". I hope a Version 3 is on the cards. This could be so much better with a bit of liaising with the sim community. Please make it happen.
