  • Description

    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.

    Really good product. Congrats Tropicalsim. Pretty good level of detail, extremely light for the system, excelent performance. I fly these sceneries of the Azores Islands every week and I would like to suggest Tropicalsim crew the following: -It would be great if you could have in your Azores sceneries the same lights in the runways that you have in the taxiways. -With so small islands why not to have full area coverage in your landclass? It would be great especially when we are talking about one of the most beautifull places on earth, the Azores Islands. Carry on doing a pretty good job, for me the best Azores scenery available for FSX.

    Das add-on ist eigentlich nicht schlecht ! Nur die Installation ist umständlich und für Neulinge nicht ganz einfach zu realisieren.Auch der Preis ist deutlich zu hoch !
