Ricardo Morillos has released his Las Americas International Airport, which is the primary airport of the Dominican Republic and one of the most important airports in the Caribbean. Ricardo has modelled this one with all terminals and buildings, moving jetways and service trucks, night lighting, a modified AFCAD file, the port of Caucedo and much more.
In order to enjoy this program and its update, you will need Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 (Version 9.1) and Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7. You will also need at least a 2 GHz processor, 1 GB of ram, and a 3D graphics card with at least 256 MB.
If you have FSX, you will need Microsoft Flight Simulator X (Acceleration or SP2). Once you have all the technical requirements, you will be able to enjoy Las Americas, one of the most prominent airports in the Caribbean, through the comfort of your home.
The simulation includes high resolution ground textures for runways, taxiways, apron etc., vehicle animations (FS2004) and native (FSX). The program offers excellent night lighting and more than 150sq Kilometers of photo scenery with thousands of hand placed custom autogen, dozens of custom made buildings and objects in a 30 KM area from east to west.
You program includes a manual (in PDF format) and charts and maps. The PDF manual, all of 11 pages long, has the usual information such as product features, background info and characteristics of the airport, some general flying tips and an FAQ section.
Also, a helpful feature is auto installer, which automatically installs new scenery to your FS library. This scenery from LatinVFR is a very detailed reproduction of Las Americas International Airport which has been the gateway to many dream vacations in the Caribbean. The layout is very simple and can be divided into three main areas; the general aviation area, passenger terminal and finally the cargo area.
The passenger terminal is the largest building on the airport grounds. The general aviation and cargo areas are very similar when it comes to structures and apron layout. The buildings in these areas appear to be older and show signs of weathering and ageing, several of them have metal roofs which show some rust.
This simulator is very well done and loved and recommended by many.
