The new Switzerland Professional is the ultimate scenery for visual flights for FSX! 3D objects have been place on their true exact position throughout the whole of Switzerland. Houses have been placed on their exact locations, trees and forests have been remodelled in 3D and can be seen just as in reality.
The complete Swiss area has been modelled as a highly detailed visual scenery on the basis of photorealistic pictures. The terrain model (mesh) includes every little hill. Houses, streets, mountains, huts - everything - is visible. To ensure that the Rhine river and other areas near the border can be seen and used for orientation the developers have also included a belt around the swiss borders of a few kilometers. Very good news too is the fact that frame rates are really phenomenal. This surely is a "must have" for each and every General Aviation and PC.hobby pilot.
To increase the level of reality well-known sightseeing spots have been added. These include the parliament building in Bern, the "Grossmunster" in Zurich, the "Kapellbrücke" in Luzern, the cathedral of St Gallen and many more. Helicopter pilots will be pleased to know that the heli bases and pads were also included. All larger lakes and rivers come with the beautiful FSX water effects.
- Premiere: the first photorealistic scenery that includes winter textures!
- Also unique: Night textures
- Autogen buildings and forests
- The new Switzerland Professional for FSX and for FS2004

Conclusion by Avsim.com:
"High prices generate high expectations. Switzerland Professional X is expensive, by almost any standard, but premium does not mean perfect. First-class is not the same as flawless. What sets this product apart is the accumulation of features, each of which is either expensive to license or labor-intensive to create: aerial photographs, plus snow in winter, plus night lighting, plus autogen, plus custom lakes and rivers, plus customized structures. There are other products -- good ones -- that have some of these features, but none that have all of them in combination. And, of course, no one else covers Switzerland in this much detail."
