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.

Customer Reviews
FSXCENERY - KBTV BURLINGTON INTERNATIONAL FSX P3D
Carlos Quesada
I was afraid of buying it, thinking it was going to be toyish and low quality. But I was surprised. It is not an Aerosoft, Fly Tampa or Orbx doing but it is very nicely done, recreates exactly the airport and enviroment, nice textures, looks like a lot of time was invested. Good job! very satisfied with it, no regrets, maybe I'll try others like Belize, always difficult to find. Carlos Quesada
SXAIRPORTDESIGN - BIRMINGHAM-SHUTTLESWORTH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Greg Blakley
Really impressed with this one. Sure it's not top-tier type quality but it's still very, very good. Frames through the rough and butter smooth. The price is just right for what you get. I am pleased that they are doing the smaller commercial airports....ple-
ase keep it up!
NXGN SIMULATIONS - CITATION CJ4X FSX P3D
Remco van Reeuwijk
I am a sucker for small businessjets. So, I just had to get this CJ4X. And though it's not comparable to Carenado, it looks good. Textures could have been better, but hey... for this price it sure is acceptable. It handles smooth. Has a nice cabin and sounds natural. And for those guys out there that are sometimes troubled by the framerate while flying the full HD Carenado jets (lie myself): this is your little bird.

AEROSOFT - CRJ 700/900 X FSX P3D
Jacques TOURON
Not bad at all, easy to operate. Operating manuals very detailed. 2 main concerns, as far as I'm concerned : -Yoke which can't be hidden and QUITE obstructing, xtremely annoying. -All twisted panels which give me STIFF NECK ! Can't understand what's behind it but I'm not the developer.
ABACUS - AIRBUS A319 TEST PILOT
Eskil Dalenius
This is a mission pack for all those who, like me, enjoy flying airliners. Specifically, you are a test pilot for Airbus in Toulouse, making one of the first flights with the A319, and then making a sales pitch for a potential Austrian customer. The pack thus consists of just two missions, and a nice rendition of the A319 in two Airbus house liveries is included. You are being well guided throughout the missions, so they are not especially difficult. They are, however, quite long - each has a duration of 2½ hours. There is a reward for the second mission only. The missions are made by a team headed by the talented Mathieu O’Hare, who has provided numerous missions, both freeware and payware, over the years. Sadly, there is a programming error in the mission (.XML) file for part 1, which means that the mission will never come to completion. If you want to correct it, look for SimMission.Prop-

ether you find the price right for two missions and a plane is up to you, but I think it is quite good.
AFLOSIM - HENRI COANDA AIRPORT BUCHAREST FSX P3D
Luka Albreht
I've never written a review so far (i don't know why if i'm honest) but this one deserves it. Buying this was one of the most pleasant surprises for me so far regarding sceneries. Seamless installation, beautifully made with excellent performance both in terms of fps and vas usage. Lots of details with fully functional jetways and docking systems makes it one of the must buy addons. Same goes for Cluj airport also made by AflOSim. Keep up the good work and looking forward to future projects.
