This package contains BOTH airport sceneries: Buenos Aires, Argentina SAEZ and Caracas, Venezuela SVMI

Description of  SVMI follows below

Better know as Ezeiza, SAEZ is the international airport serving the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Ezeiza is the gateway to this magnificent country and the whole southern part of the South American continent. With non-stop service to all major cities in South and North America and Europe as well as cities in New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia and South Africa, SAEZ is an exciting airport where wide-body, long-haul aircraft are the norm. Served by nearly all major airlines in the western world, SAEZ is busy and truly international. It is also home to Aerolineas Argentinas (the third largest airline in Latinoamerica) and LAN Argentina (a subsidiary of one of the fastest growing airlines in the world).

SAEZ terminals have an unmistakable European flavor characteristic of the proud South American nation. On the brink of major re-development projects, SAEZ is also an airport bound to be the first 21st century airport in this part of the world. In the mean time, the new international arrivals and departure wing is a preamble to a bright future. We have rendered this impressive structure with a luxury of detail that can be experienced at two distinct levels to accommodate more modest computers. The rest of the terminal complex, the cargo terminal and the unusually located maintenance and general aviation facilities have also been portrayed in detail.

Ideal for long-haul flights and challenging low visibility approaches (quite common in the Buenos Aires area), we invite you to explore Ezeiza like you have never done it before. Across the Andes to Santiago, toward the mountains of Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador, toward the southernmost airline-served airport in the world, across the Pacific to Australia, or across the Atlantic to Europe, Asia and Africa, SAEZ is likely to be your departure or destination point for many exciting and unique flying experiences.

Scenery Features

  • Custom-made, optimized Gmax models of the two terminals, cargo facilities, maintenance and general aviation complex and many other buildings on the field
  • Custom-made high-resolution textures for all Gmax generated models including transparency and reflection effects in the FSX version
  • Custom-made, high-resolution ground textures adjusted to fit accurately the runways on their real-life locations
  • Accurate taxiway and ramp layout including detailed markings and signs
  • Basic, custom-made AI mapping file including realistic airline gates and parking spot locations.
  • Realistic ramp illumination effects, approach equipment and animated radar facilities.

Note: As in most international airports in South America, gate assignments are variable and unpredictable. Consequently, no gate assignments other than those corresponding to Aerolineas Argentinas have been made. Parking spots have been fitted to accommodate default aircraft only. The parking spot locations will have to be moved to accommodate third-party add-on aircraft.

Note: In the FSX version, the default animated vehicles can be accommodated around the parked aircraft. Nonetheless, a set of static vehicles has been provided. The static vehicles can easily be removed to give way to the default vehicles.

SVMI or "Aeropuerto Internacional Simon Bolivar" serves the city of Caracas, Venezuela. Historically know as Maiquetia, SVMI has been in operation since the dawn of aviation when airlines like Pan Am pioneered commercial flights across the Caribbean Sea bound for South America. Its prime location on the northern coast of the South American continent made it the ideal first and last stop before the crossing thus earning the qualification of "Gateway" to South America and the Caribbean. SVMI has, at one time or another, offered service to all major cities in South America, the east coast of North America, the Caribbean and Europe. While having been much busier at other times, SVMI continues to be an important crossroad for intercontinental flight.

SVMI was the home to Viasa (Venezolana Internacional de Aviacion, S.A.), one of the pioneering airlines in the South America - Europe passenger routes. It was also home to Aeropostal and the Pan Am affiliated Avensa (Aerovias Venezolanas S.A.), two of the oldest airlines in the world. The ongoing deterioration of the Venezuelan aviation industry resulted in the sad demise around the turn of the century of these airlines which are yet to be replaced by another worthy of such distinguished heritage. The lack of a major flag carrier has been compensated by service by numerous international airlines from all over the western hemisphere.

Interestingly, SVMI is considered to be the DC9 enthusiast heaven. DC9s (on their -30 and -50 series versions) were once the backbone of the Avensa and Aeropostal fleets. Being strong and reliable, those same aircraft have been handed down from airline to airline and still constitute the bulk of SVMI's domestic and regional operations.

SVMI is located in the only sizable portion of semi-flat land between the mountains surrounding the city of Caracas and the Caribbean Sea. Numerous development and renovation projects have resulted in the current terminal complex that includes a Domestic Terminal and an International Terminal. Those facilities have been in operation since the late 1970s. At opening, they boasted major works of art by local artists that include the floor of the passenger check-in hall in the international terminal and two enormous colored glass murals in the check-in hall of the domestic terminal. Both pieces have been preserved and can still be admired today. The most recent round of improvements still underway resulted in the expansion and complete renovation and modernization both inside and out of the international terminal. We have rendered both terminals as they exist today with luxury of detail.

SVMI has two semi-parallel runways, 9/27 and 10/28, the former being the original runway that has been in operation for many decades. When runway 9/27 was the only runway, the approach to runway 9 (used 99% of the time due to the prevailing trade winds from the east) was considered one of the most dangerous approaches, especially at night or under low visibility conditions without the advantages of an ILS. We invite you to explore SVMI to find our the reason for such distinction. Runway 10/28 entered operation at the same time as the current terminals did, easing the challenges of the approach. Nonetheless, minor deviations from the proper approach course will continue to result in unscheduled, violent landings either on the side of a mountain or in the Caribbean Sea.

Scenery Features

  • Custom-made optimized Gmax models of the two terminals, the traffic control tower, the auxiliary terminal, the maintenance facilities and the cargo terminal
  • Custom-made, high-resolution textures for all Gmax generated models including transparency and refection effects in the FSX version
  • Custom-adjusted terrain elevation at 30 meter resolution to better represent the geography surrounding the field and enable the accurate positioning of the runways and other airport facilities that were misplaced in both the FS2004 and FSX default sceneries. (This feature represents the introduction if a new skill acquired by our development team and now available to be applied in future FS2004 and FSX sceneries)
  • Custom-made high-resolution ground textures fitted to the runways at their correct location and displaying interesting mountain and coastal features
  • Accurate taxiway and ramp layout including detailed markings and signs
  • Basic, custom-made AI mapping file including realistic gate and parking spot locations
  • Realistic ramp illumination effects, approach equipment and animated radar facility

Note: As is the case for most international airports in South America, airline gate assignments are variable and unpredictable. Consequently, no gate assignments have been made.

Note: This scenery, particularly the domestic terminal, is incompatible with the default animated vehicles in FSX. An alternate set if static vehicles is provided.

RHDSIM - A320 FOR X-PLANE 11
gary
Fantastic plane!. I have the JAR 320 but thought I'd try this as it is so cheap. It is head and shoulders above the JAR 320. The flying is great, controls are responsive, I really cant fault this plane at all. It's now my goto plane.

Absolutely awesome airport scenery and outstanding value. Great approaches at both ends its a definite purchase even if i was paying twice the price. great work from the dev!
AEROSOFT - DOUGLAS DC-8 FSX P3D
Timothy
I use this in P3Dv5.2, which required a simple registry "adjustment" and an updated xml tools app. So, it is NOT a supported v5 airplane, which I want to make clear; It does NOT just install into P3Dv5 and run. BUT, if you're comfortable with some minor tinkering, it works great. (I'm really pretty much a dunce when it comes to that sort of thing; it just took a little research and patience.) C-
ompared to the Just Flight DC-8 series (which doesn't require any special tricks to work in P3Dv5) Aerosoft's is much more technically polished. The fuel system works as advertised, including automatically maintaining the 1 and 4 mains at a certain level by feeding from their alternate tanks. Speaking of fuel, it has a neat payload and fuel loader that distributes fuel properly in this complicated tank system. It has a decent INS that gives you the option of operating in a realistic manner or just loading a standard flight plan and off you go. You can (and need to) fly it by the numbers, which are in the excellent manual containing a well-written long-haul tutorial. It feels like I imagine a DC-8 should feel and keeps you plenty busy during cruise. It's a solid product at a good price. I do wish this "steak" had more of the "sizzle" of the Just Flight DC-8. There's nothing really wrong with the graphics. The sounds are underwhelming. Everything you need to fly the airplane normally is animated, but that's about it. Crossfeed? Nope. (Nor do you need it for normal operations.) I agree with another reviewer that some apron toys would have been nice. Had I not spent a lot of time in the JF DC-8 first, I might not have even noticed these things. But the important point is that the Aerosoft DC-8 works like a DC-8 is supposed to work, while the JF version, while good-looking and fun in its quirky own way for me, just doesn't. This is the one to get unless you are a certified classic jet fanatic who will want both versions. Adventurous users of P3Dv5 have some options for classic jetliners and it would be a shame to see this really nice DC-8 passed by when it works beautifully with a little help.

Quite a nice little airport; crisp and detailed. Good for a bush trip or a GA flight. Great quality for 5 euros.

Wonderful addon with lots of detail and a welcome addition to our Germany Library. Worth every euro of this bargain price.
AEROPLANE HEAVEN - SUPERMARINE SPITFIRE MK1A - MSFS
Jason
AH Spitfire MK1A.. Aboslutely Beautiful flight model, easy to fly, but not so on the ground (as in real i think) many many features brings you the best that MSFS2020 has to offer with vintage warbirds. This in my view is a "Must Have" to add to your collection 9/10 from me.
BRSIMDESIGNS - EMB200 IPANEMA CROP DUSTER - MSFS
Mike
The modeling, texture work and feature set of the EMB200 is relatively weak at this price point. More critical users may find both the flight model and interior quality to be at odds with the otherwise immersive MSFS experience.
BIJAN HABASHI - PROJECT: ISLANDS, SUNKEN BOATS, HUTS, PG TREES - MSFS
Kevin
This is a truly one of a kind add-on that offers a truly unique value proposition. For a modest fee, you can select your own desired area to be enhanced, which is worth the price of admission in itself, and then also receive every other user's requested enhancements free of charge, with future enhancements added daily. It's an incredible add-on by Bijan, a porported single human being, butI have my doubts. His updates come so fast I believe he might be an early prototype of Bishop from Alien, a synthetic humanoid who does not need to waste time on trivial mortal necessities like sleeping or eating. Ther-
e is only a single paid add-on that I'd rate more essential than this, and that is another creation of the cyborg Bishop/Bijan, his excellent Four Seasons Mod. Buy this without hesitation, and you can look forward to your sim being enhanced, improved and enriched in some way every time you start a new flight. He's so prolific 2 more updates have dropped since I typed this. A+++ 10/10

Another 1st class product from Bijan Habashi. Nothing I can say that hasn't already been said in earlier reviews. This, 4 seasons, and 3d trees make a remarkable difference to the sim. All are must haves Thank--
