PILOT'S have today released their first product for X-Plane in the form of a conversion of Almeria (LEAM), which was previously developed for Prepar3D, FSX and the now-defunct Flight Sim World. The conversion was originally announced in April to little apparent fanfare, but since then has shown steady progress.

Almeria is a historic city in Southeastern Spain which has a one-runway airport that serves about 9 million passengers each year.

Almeria Airport by PILOT'S has the following features:

  • 4K resolution textures
  • Animated tamarc workers
  • Animierter airport traffic
  • 750 square-kilometers of photoreal (50cm/px city & airport, 2m/px for rest of Almeria)
  • Accurate depiction of Almeria harbour
  • 3D Grass custom vegation
  • Realistic shadow rendition
  • Special night light shadows textures
  • 3D ALS and runways lights
  • Custom buildings for the city, surrounding areas and Autogen
  • Fully optimized design for great performance and high frame rates

PILOT'S LEAM is available for 22.99 EUR on their website. The scenery will be available on the Threshold Store soon.
