Payware in the BRICs

Recommended Posts

There are lots of great options for flying in Europe and North America, but why is it so hard to find payware airports for other populous regions of the world?

 

And not just Brazil, Russia, India, and China, but more generally I'd love to get some good recommendations for any payware airports anywhere in South America, Africa, the Middle East, or Southern Asia.

 

I need to expand my horizons, but after spending so much time with the likes of UK2000, Flytampa, Flightbeam, FSDT, and Orbx, it's just so hard to go back to stock airports, especially if the destination is a new one.

 

Any pointers?

I think that there's several high-quality freeware airports out for Russia (can't tell you any names, unfortunately), and several payware airports for China:http://secure.simmarket.com/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=china 

 

My 'area of specialty' is the Middle East. If you want obscure and interesting destinations, check out http://www.syriasim.org/. For freeware, their scenery is quite good, and I can personally attest that their Damascus scenery is highly accurate. Also, both SDG and ARMI have a version of Cario (HECA). Orientalsim's Baghdad (http://secure.simmarket.com/orientalsim-baghdad-intl-(de_4391).phtml) isn't compatible with P3D but maybe it's of interest to you anyway. Moving south, there's Riyadh (http://secure.simmarket.com/armi-project-oerk-king-khalid-fsx.phtml) and Jeddah (http://secure.simmarket.com/bdoaviation-king-abdul-aziz-international-airport-fsx.phtml), and of course FlyTampa's Dubai. 

 

There's plenty of scenery for obscure, out-of-the-way, and undeveloped places, you just need to do a bit of digging. This resource is pretty up to date: http://www.freewarescenery.com/fsx.html

For Africa, South Africa in particular, take a look at "NMG Trading". Airports and surrounds are accurate and blend well with Orbx Global too, if you use it. Frame rates are not the best but they are probably the best option for South African airports. All their airports have installers for P3D.
