openVFR Europe Italy, Sardina & Malta
Italy is one of the most beautiful holiday destination in Europe with approx 130 airports. It covers a surface area of 300,000 square km and includes the islands of Sardinia and Sicily. Discovering Italy can be an unforgettable experience. Explore this beautiful country by flying in mountainous areas in the north, the highest point being Mont Blanc, and areas with significant volcanic activity in the south like Etna, along with the famous Vesuvius.
openVFR Europe Spain, Isla Madeira
If you are an experienced flightsimmer you’ll surely know the airport of Madeira, informally known as Funchal Airport. Surrounded by high mountains and the ocean it is a tricky landing for even experienced pilots. The isle itself offers beautiful countryside. openVFR will give you a terrain rich of details, various 3D objects and a 90m mesh of this island. As openVFR is not focussed on creating airports we don’t intent to update them.
openVFR Europe Portugal, Islas de Canarias
Located around 100 kilometers off the northwestern coast of Africa Spain’s paradisaical Islas Canarias (Canary Islands) consists of a handful of smaller islands and seven large islands: El Hierro, La Palma, La Gomera, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote. Explore the vast sandy beaches and coves, fascinating reefs, plunging cliffs and soaring mountain peaks with funky rock formations, craters and volcanic tubes.
openVFR North America, Isla Saint Pierre and Miquelon
St Pierre and Miquelon is a small group of islands in the North Atlantic Ocean, south of Newfoundland and Labrador. We found them actually by accident when creating our openVFR scenery for Newfoundland. Fascinated by the calm beauty of these Islands we decided to fullfill the East Canadian area in openVFR.
If you would like to see some Visual impressions of all openVFR sceneries you’ll find hundreds of FSX screens at www.openvfr.de/facebook.
