Maps2XPlane, in cooperation with Spain UHD developer Albert Rafols, have release the Faroe Islands for X-Plane. Faroes4XPlane is a highly realistic recreation of the Faroe Islands, the Vágar Airport and eight helipads. The archipelago is situated between Norway and Iceland and is mountainous, windy, wet, cloudy and cool, which makes it a challenging destination for air traffic.

This is Maps2XPlane's 2nd large scale payware scenery, following the release of Svalbard XP, which was made in cooperation with Stairport Sceneries.
