Just Flight is pleased to announce the release of the third volume of its highly anticipated VFR Real Scenery series for Flight Simulator X. VFR Real Scenery - Wales & South-West England is now shipping out from Just Flight.

The latest volume in this hugely popular is set to transform Flight Simulator X with amazing photographic scenery that includes night lighting, coastlines and water effects.

The VFR Real Scenery series is designed exclusively for Flight Simulator X but it may be that you haven't taken the plunge and bought FSX yet. Well, now's the time! We've got an amazing offer running at the moment - buy the first three volumes of the VFR Real Scenery series at the normal retail price and we'll add a copy of Flight Simulator X for FREE!!!

Does this sound too good to be true? Surely, there must be a catch? Not really. For a limited time only we're offering VFR Real Scenery volumes 1, 2 and 3 (normally £24.99 each in the shops) plus a copy of Flight Simulator X deluxe (normally £59.99 in the UK) for just £74.97. The normal retail price for this attractive threesome would be a whopping £134.96!

VFR stands for 'Visual Flight Rules' - this is the way that pilots navigate when they aren't using complex instruments - they look at a map and then pinpoint landmarks on the ground to work out their position. Doing this in a flight simulator requires scenery that's exactly the same as the real landscape. VFR Real Scenery is an amazing piece of software that provides just that - fly over England and Wales in Flight Simulator X and sample the view you'd get from a real aircraft. You can see the real countryside from the air and pinpoint every key landmark. They're all featured - streets, buildings, rivers, lakes, reservoirs... and all at extremely high resolution and detail!


VOLUME 3 - Wales & South-West England

Covers all of Wales, Cornwall and Devon and parts of Somerset, Dorset, Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Cheshire

Principal towns covered include: Truro, Plymouth, Exeter, Barnstaple, Taunton, Weymouth, Bristol, Cardiff, Swansea, Aberystwyth, Caernarfon, Shrewsbury, Hereford and Chester.


  • VFR Real Scenery uses the very latest 25cm digital aerial images from GeoPerspectives displayedat 1m per pixel resolution in FSX.
  • Includes 9.6m mesh terrain data which hugely improves the default relief.
  • Individually edited night textures make flying after dark a real eye-opener!
  • Water features are rendered with Flight Simulator X water effects - you can land a seaplane in VFR Real Scenery.
  • Airport runways are correctly aligned between FSX and VFR Real Scenery - there are no ghosts in VFR Real!

Just Flight's Martin Wright, who has been keeping the world's coffee growers in business during the development cycle of the VFR series, commented on the imminent release: "All the volumes in the series have been very well received but I think, thanks to the geography, this is the best yet. The dramatic coastline around the south-west and the variety of the relief in Wales really show off the scenery to great effect. Flying our new Eurofighter down a Welsh valley makes all the effort worthwhile."
