Share your list of free High Quality Airports for P3DV4

Recommended Posts

I have tested a few high quality free airports that work great in P3Dv4

These are all Australia and I am also using Orbx Australia.

Ants Airports Ballina ( YBNA ) in Northern New South Wales. Its an hours flight north of Sydney and is serviced daily by Virgin Australia using 737-800 & E190 and Jetstar with A320's. I think its on pair with Orbx airports.

Ants Aussie airports is another great one. It contains 33 Airports across the country. My favorite is the outback town of Longreach ( YLRE ). Its the home of QANTAS and has the Qantas Founders museum with static Qantas 747-200 and 707 just like in the real world airport. Its serviced daily by a Qantas Link Q400 from Brisbane.  

Get both here http://www.antsairplanes.com/scenery.html

Gold Coast ( YBCG )  Its located in Southern Queensland. 1 hours flight from Sydney and about 1.45 Hours from Melbourne. Its an international airport with frights arriving from Southern Australia via Virgin Australia, Qantas, Jetstar and Tiger. Air New Zealand have several daily A320 services from New Zealand. Air Asia has an A330 service from Malaysia. Scoot operate the 787 to Singapore and Jetstar an A330 service to Japan.

Any special procedures with installing? Did you use the addon.xml method?

No I just created a file for addon scenery outside of the main P3D file and used the scenery library to add each package

I have all Ants scenery installed in p3Dv3.4 and their scenery order requires them to be above any installed ORBX scenery(advice from Ants). Have you been able to do this in v4 - I usually use Scenery configurator but the v4 update hasn't been released.

Thanks great that these airports work in v4 without having to change anything.

I also love Ant's Boonah it is a top quality grass field.

I also enjoyed Ant's Brisbane international YBBN much more than Orbx's rendition because it has much better frame rates.

Have you tried YBBN and Boonah in v4?

The Altiports Alps package by vf-air partially works - the sloped runways are there but many objects are not.  I have converted the bgl's to FSX format, and have obtained the permission of the author to upload the converted files, which I hope to do shortly.

Freeware Reggio Calabria airport LICR , with a challenging curved approach to runway 33, works in v4, however the flashing lead-in lights do not appear to work.

I own Orbx YBBN so I am waiting for that to be updated.

One of my favorites that looks absolutely spectacular in v4 is LatinVFR's KEYW. Just beautiful. Updated with proper installer too.

I wonder if the many free AFCAD updates for V3 would function in V4.
