Line up on the „String of Pearls“ and land on Europe’s busiest airport London Heathrow.

The award winning Sim-wings Team has once again pushed the limits of modelling a perfect mega hub with Mega Airport London Heathrow professional representing the actual and up to date stage of its real world counterpart. Find out what commercial aviation is all about by joining the traffic of the world´s third busiest airport.

The scenery covers around 42 square kilometres in total with fully detailed buildings at the airport, including the new T2 and T2B terminals. Fully customized high resolution aerial ground textures, detailed ground markings and the actual taxiway layout with new rapid runway exits and taxiway links make it a perfect rendition while use of LOD technique will give you the best possible performance. There’s even an option to use the still existing old Europier which will be demolished soon.

  • Airport London Heathrow with near airport surroundings (about 42 square kilometres in total)
  • Fully detailed buildings at the airport
  • Safegate and other dockings at all gates

As always Simwings do a really nice job on modelling, detail etc. Everything is where it should be, AFCAD options with Runway swaps is a great addition with this product!

Biggest draw back is of course the FPS. London is a hard hit area, with other surrounding airports, plus the city. TO fly the PMDG 777 into LHR your AI traffic needs to be 30% to keep it just within double FPS figures. Compared to Aerosoft Frankfurt, FT Amsterdam and T2G Munich the FPS (lack of) really lets it down.

The terminals really look good. And so do the taxiways, wheras the grass in between looks very artifitial, not even blurry, but pretty FS2002 like.. but OK, that's not a big deal.
BUT: It has very bad FPS and really terrible texture loading times, even without any visual addon around it - and even without AI traffic (which surprisingly makes up only a marginal difference in performance despite the huge amout of planes). It usually takes half a minute until all building textures are loaded again each time after turning your virtual head - independant from the existence of other addons.
I've got detailed sceneries of the busiest airports in the world, even with heavy landscape addons around them. But this is by far the worst performing one, even on my new system. I'm always on the edge of replacing this scenery with an older, lower res one, because it's really no fun to fly there with an airliner.

This is by far the best scenery add on I have used day and NIGHT.
NIGHT IS PERFECTLY CONFIGURED FOR PREPAR3D V5.

Vom Aussehen her nichts Weltbewegendes, aber ganz OK. Die neuen Terminals sind gut gelungen. Aber von der Performance her unter aller Kanone. Auch ohne FTX England, mit nur mäßigem AI Traffic und ohne weitere regionale Addons dauert es locker 20-30 Sekunden, bis alle Texturen geladen sind - und das jedes Mal, wenn man den Blickwinkel zurück zu den Terminals versetzt. Auch die FPS sind ziemlich schlecht im Vergleich zu anderen Airports dieser Größe mit ähnlichem oder sogar höherem Verkehrsaufkommen. OOM sind seit P3D v4 zum Glück kein Thema mehr, aber ansonsten läuft auch die "Professional" für P3D v4 nicht besser als die Versionen davor. Schade, macht mir so keinen Spaß und werde die Szenerie zum 2. Mal nach längerem Zögern wieder begraben.

Nichts besonderes, ein weiteres Aerosoft Produkt, welches kurzer Hand auf P3Dv4 angepasst wurde. Auch hier geht mein Rechner fast in die Knie. Deweiteren sucht man vergeblich nach schöner Rasenfläche neben den Runways.
Allgemein finde fast alle Aerosoft Produkte, die den Namen Professional tragen sehr FPS feindlich.

It's a good scenery with a lot of detail. However, it's missing something that I can't quite put my finger on. Maybe too much saturation in buildings and markings? I like it, but I don't love it.

Awesome addon that portrays Heathrow nicely and it performs surprisingly well given it's complexity.
