Low-End Pc Studios Releases Iquitos Airport for MSFS
Low-End Pc Studios has recently released their rendition of Coronel FAP Francisco Secada Vignetta International Airport (SPQT) for Microsoft Flight Simulator, serving the Peruvian city of Iquitos with a yearly average of 1 million passengers.
It was built in the late 1920s as a gravel airstrip for military purposes, eventually evolving into a commercial airport over the following decades, along with several infrastructural upgrades and expansions.
Its current name was adopted in 1973 after a local Peruvian Air Force pilot who had fought in the war with Colombia between 1932 and 1933.
The airport is of great importance to the city’s economy because it’s only accessible by air or river, meaning every urgent logistical operation has to go through the airport, which also justifies the relatively high passenger figures in comparison with the city’s population (1 million passengers yearly, and the city has less than half a million inhabitants). Said figures make it the fourth busiest airport in Peru.
LATAM Peru, SAETA Peru, Sky Airline Peru, and Star Peru serve the airport year-round.
The scenery features an accurate rendition of the airport, with a custom ground mesh, PBR textures, terminal interior modeling, custom runway elevation profile, animated objects, and a performance-friendly optimization.
It’s available on SimMarket for roughly $10.16, requiring at least 150.09 MB of free hard disk space to install.
