In February 2010, Mexsim announced its release of the FS2004 scenery of General Juan N. Alvarez International Airport in Acapulco, Mexico.

General Juan N. Álvarez International Airport, also known as Acapulco International Airport, is an aviation facility located 26 km from Acapulco, Guerrero, Mexico. The airport is the largest international airport in the country's southern Pacific region, and one of the largest air facilities in Mexico. Acapulco International Airport is one of the top 15 airports in Mexico in terms of passengers and operations, and it receives many international charter flights.

The airport is an important gateway into Southern Mexico – it handled 736,878 passengers in 2010. It can accommodate jets up to the size of the Boeing 747. The airport serves Acapulco, an essential resort and recreation area in Southern Mexico.

There are frequent daily flights from Mexico City International Airport in Mexico City and also less frequent flights from other Mexican, American, and Canadian cities. The airport is divided in two terminals – the passenger terminal and the general aviation terminal.

The airport’s key features are as follows:

  • Detailed custom buildings
  • Terminal replica as real life
  • Top quality ground textures
  • Custom jet ways, cars, trees and taxi lights
  • Realistic night lighting
  • Accurate AFCAD
  • Friendly FPS

  • Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004
  • Windows XP / Vista
  • 2 Ghz Processor
  • 1024 MB RAM
