Our newest addition to the photorico family, CPX is truly a VFR pilots dream. It features one of the world’s most beautiful beaches (Flamenco Beach) followed by a very challenging approach through the middle of a ridge. This scenery has been designed to keep the simmer engaged. It will make the simmer pilot want to practice the approach until perfect! (or close enough).  The airport features all buildings with realistic day and night textures, as well as detailed taxiway and apron surfaces (all made from scratch to match real airport).

 

CPX is full of well known local features such as live Ferry, ferry terminal area, and custom autogen houses and buildings, to give the simmer a complete local pilot experience.  CPX 2016 also features custom grass patches, which can be removed by the user though scenery complexity settings if the most demanding performance is desired.  It doesn’t matter how much of an FS veteran you are, we guarantee that you will enjoy our Culebra Island scenery,a dn it may quickly become one of your must do Caribbean Stops.  Note: VQS is only 4 miles away, making it an ideal, normal sim rate, manual flying experience. AP not required nor recommended, just have fun!
