Maps2XPlane - Seychelles4XPlane - The Airfields


Here is some news from scenery developer Maps2XPlane abouttheir Seychelles4XPlane package. In this this post thedeveloper goes into detail about the additional thirteen airfieldsavailable in the scenery - the two main airports in the scenery areSeychelles International Airport and Praslin Island Airport:

After informing you in the previous posting about the two largestairports – the Seychelles International Airport and the regionalPraslin Island Airport – let's today have a closer look at thethirteen additional airfields which will be included in theSeychelles4XPlane scenery package:

The thirteen additional landing sites are spread over the smallerislands of the Seychelles archipelago and are usually very small andshort, and embedded in dense tropical vegetation. Four of them aregrass airstrips. So dear virtual pilots: Be prepared for challengingapproaches, and expect to be rewarded by stunning and scenic locations– island hopping at its best.


IRL most of the islands are served by the Island DevelopmentCompany. IDC was incorporated in 1980, to create a structure to enablethe economy of the outer islands to be developed. Only selectedislands are dedicated for tourism, and can be reached either byscheduled Air Seychelles flights, or charters operated by Zil Air, alocal provider of helicopter and fixed-wing flights.

Expect untouched nature, stunning atolls and lagoons, densetropical vegetation, and here and there a few signs ofcivilization. That means for our Seychelles rendition for X-Plane:photorealistic terrain mesh paired with custom 3D vegetation, customgeneric autogen, and custom dynamic traffic on land and on thesea. Last but not least: Selected islands, hosting IRL hotels andresorts, received also some extras: We populate them with customobjects and buildings, based on real counter-parts.
