Erfurt X is set to be popular with simmers. One user, Richard Micola, from the Netherlands, reviewed this product, saying,

And bingo for Erfurt-X! If you buy this one, then you take no risk! No shimmering! FPS are okay. Runways and Taxiways are all hardened. AES lite included! And the architecture on the Airport is a joy to look at! You can get this all for a very soft price. Compliments for the producers of Erfurt-X!
