October 27, 2021

PILOT’S have recently published an update for their Alicante Airport (LEAL) for MSFS. This update brings numerous improvements and changes since Version 1 of the scenery, which was released on September 17th of this year.

PILOT’s have developed numerous sceneries for Prepar3D, Microsoft Flight Simulator, and X-Plane 11. Alongside their scenery products, PILOT’S have also released the Boeing B314 Clipper for Prepar3D. The group has been developing high-quality sceneries for over 2 years now that never seem to disappoint. 

Alicante-Elche Miguel Hernández Airport is the fifth busiest airport in Spain following Málaga-Costa Del Sol. The airport is travelled to by passengers who are visiting Spain’s sunny shores, and also travelling onwards to Benidorm. Alicante Airport has over 20 airlines flying to and from the airport as well as over 50 destinations.
