JustSim have released a native update rendition of Girona – Costa Brava International Airport in
Nation of Spain located near the Eastern coast of Catalonia in Spain. Made available to MSFS
earlier this year, this is not the first airport that JUSTSIM has released in the region along with
Barcelona LEBL back in 2021 with a compatibility update for P3Dv5. Located in the Country of
Spain home to mainly low-cost carriers operations for the Catalonia region. LEGE is a single-
runway airport that offers direct routes to almost 35+ destinations around mainland Europe
including major airports services to cities such as London, Brussels, Paris, and Frankfurt. Girona is
also used mainly as a European hub by Ryanair and Jet2.
The JustSim product offers amazing features which take advantage of the latest P3D
technologies such as Dynamic Lighting and PBR Textures which are considered a major key
feature to determine the standard pay ware quality of P3D products. JUSTSIMhave also nicely
modelled the airport terminal building and a large number of custom buildings outside the
airport within the vicinity, including – Shading and occlusion (texture baking) effects on terminal
and other airport buildings, PBR on all objects, Ambient occlusion (Objects and ground), Dynamic
lighting of the apron, Custom vegetation (on the airport), Customized Autogen (on the airport)
and nice seasonal effects taxiways, aprons, runway which give a great realistic feel to the airport
and its surroundings. Additionally, JUSTSIMhave also included GSX customized profile Animated
Features which fit perfectly with the airports size and main terminal offering multiple effects
include customized GSX Ground Service settings for scenery (parking’s specifications, vehicles,
pushback, and boarding services).
An advantage to this product is also that it works seamlessly with Autogen or Mesh product’s by
ORBX Global/ freeware Balearics Package or Spain Quality Mesh available from
www.flightsimSpain.com for the area which is also available for P3D and gives the Airport a unique
feel of the one close products and real life feeling especially matching the spectacular photoreal
inclusion from Just Sim for this particular scenery release.
Modelling and Texturing
After carefully examining the terminal and its features, JustSim have used high quality textures
and have modelled all the major airport buildings with emphasis on 4K quality.
Without a doubt, the modelling is of top quality, the details included near the main terminal which
shows that JustSim have put a lot of effort and work into the product and its features and
noticeably on the ground markings and their effects which have a realistic effect (See Screenshot).
have also included a variety of ground vehicles which have animation features which go flawlessly
along with any ground addon such as GSX.
For Anyone who is looking to fly into LEGE Girona – Costa Brava Spain in P3D. I would highly
recommend JustSim updated version as they have put extensive effort into their version whilst
including all the major and important P3D features such as PBR, custom runway lighting system
and Dynamic Lighting at the terminals. I look forward to the next update the JustSim with now
P3D v5.4 and v6 being released. I hope that the team will push out and hope that they will be able
to develop additional similar airports in this part of the region as there is a shortage in our current
market around mainland Europe and it would be lovely to see their previous releases get the P3D
Job well done to the JustSim team! Highly Recommended!
