Need a holiday break? Now is the time to fly to the Mediterranean! And just in time SimWings have release their absolutely new scenery of Mallorca X. This package features the whole island with photorealistic ground textures and both island airports Son Bonet (LESB) and Palma (LEPA).
The scenery features exact coastlines, mesh and completely new designed airports as well as photorealistic ground images covering the complete island in a breathtaking resolution of 0,5m/pixel be it day or night in FSX. Also included is AESLite, bringing dynamic apron traffic as well as traffic to the surroundings of the airport.
Both island airports, "Son Bonet" LESB and the international airport of Palma LEPA have been modeled to the smallest of details with numerous objects, houses, etc. Safegate parking systems as well as highly detailed AFCAD and or AFX files for AI traffic make it a lively and highly realistic airport to fly to. This scenery is of course compatible with AES 2.0 in both FS2004 and FSX!

Closing remarks from avsim.com:
There is very little if anything I don’t like about Mallorca X. The combination of high detail airports that sit on a complete island of hi resolution photoreal textures makes it in my view a complete destination for flying. The heavy boys can happily fly to and from the mainland, the city hoppers can fly regional jets and props to the closer islands (Ibiza beckons to the west and Aerosoft have said they may include the other islands in the DVD release) and the GA, Helicopter and leisure flyers that includes glider pilots can explore the island and everything it has to offer, or find and float on the thermals over the mountains. Even the boat and car enthusiasts can spend weeks exploring this scenery using there chosen mode of travel. Technically Mallorca takes scenery to a new level in FSX by combining both high quality and high detail airport sceneries with a large photoreal area. At this time with only a download option Mallorca X may not be as accessible to FSX flyers as it could be, but once the DVD becomes available this is one international location I can thoroughly recommend to all FS enthusiasts, whatever your flying passion may be.

As the FSX version is very large (close to 4 GB) we have decided to split the .zip-file in two parts. This will help if you got a problem during the download process and need to restart the download. You will find the FS2004 version as normally during the order process. The FSX version will be on your Order History page. If you got any problem contact us on the scenery section of the forums. We are standing by to assist you.
