Discover the splendor of Madeira with Aerosofts latest high-end scenery project Madeira X. Areal images of 50 cm per pixel placed on a 9.5 meter mesh form the background for two highly detailed and demanding airports Funchal and Porto Santo. All the functions of FSX come to life in this brand new product.
Although close to Africa, Madeira is a semi independent part of Portugal with two main islands (Madeira and Porto Santo) and two smaller islands Desertas and Selvagens. 'Discovered' around 1420 by Portuguese sailors it was most likely know to several seafaring nations before that and probably also inhabited as well. The islands are rugged and mountainous with large parts too steep to cultivate and in many parts steep cliffs drop into the Atlantic Ocean. Because of the mild weather and superb nature it is a popular holiday destination for many Europeans and those who visited the islands will be amazed to see it so lifelike in FSX.
Both Madeira and Santo Porto islands are included in this project and next to the two detailed airports the complete islands are ideal for VFR flights, particular in small and slow aircraft but the Funchal airport is the highlight of this scenery without a doubt. Because there is so little flat land on the island the airport has a runway that extends over the ocean on a raised platform. Approaching runway 05 you follow a set of 'lead-in' landing lights over a curved path that allow you land on the runway without crashing into the mountains. Under bad weather not an easy task.
