Aerosoft professional airports - good and bad?

Recommended Posts

Considering upgrading the airports below with the new "Professional" series versions from Aerosoft since I already have all these since before and thus will get a fairly good upgrade price but still wanted to ask for some input here before pressing the checkout button so I don't waste money on bad scenery.

Here's the list of airports I'm considering:

Mega Airport London Heathrow professional
Mega Airport Barcelona professional
Mega Airport Frankfurt v2.0 professional
Berlin-Tegel professional
La Palma professional

EDDF and EDDT are a must, as the V3 compatible version will not show the taxiways or appron textures. EDDF performs very nicely, even with DL on and PMDG NGX (30 fps in VC with my brand new MSI 1080TI).  In addition, you will get dynamic lightings, which looks superb in such a big airport. 

GCLA has been updated as well and looks just so nice. It is one my favourite island airports beside LPMA. Certainly, I would upgrade if you fly often to these airports in V4.

For all these airports you have no alternative anyway and you can't go wrong quality-wise.

I have upgraded EDDF and EGLL. Both are definitely worth the small upgrade fee. Very good performance compared to the P3Dv3 versions. Actually, they are both really nice now.

Sounds great, thanks for the feedback guys!

Guess I'll just go ahead and update all of them considering the low cost to get fully up to date P3Dv4 compatibility.

I my opinion, All of these upgrades have been well worth it.  I'm certainly impressed how Heathrow is not only heavily detailed than that of UK2000 , but it is incredibly optimized.  The professional level is the way to go.  I pray that Aerosoft keeps up this level of quality and attention.

Really nice to hear this and truly looking forward to try them out!

Have to agree with above, I was skeptical of getting heathrow because of the performance but I get probably the smoothest flying out of there in the PMDG 777/747. Which to me is unreal with all the detail in it. I don’t think you could go wrong!

Yeah, lots of people seems to like both EGLL and EDDF so I'm sure they are both excellent!

Would still be interesting to know if someone tried out LSZH but I hope/guess that one is good too being a "Professional" scenery.

Anyone tried out Zurich Pro?

Zurich has some texture/landclass issues when FTX GES is installed. Unfortunately, none of them (ORBX vs AS) wants to take responsibility. It seems each of them expects the other to become active.

Yes, it looks and performs great. So, it is certainly worth the little upgrade fee in my opinion. I do not use FTX Germany.

I'm not using FTX Germany either so shouldn't be an issue but thanks though for the HU.

Yeah, getting what seems to be 6 high quality airports fully compatible with P3Dv4 paying around 35 Euro must be considered a very good deal IMO!

Any particular reason why EGLL and LSZH didn't receive the same score you gave to EDDF and ELBL?

Definitely, especially because you have no choice in V4.1 :cool:

EGLL because of performance issues (on my machine) and some small texture issues.

LSZH because of "missing compatibilty" with GES and Kok's remark that tey would not investigate that further in the moment. Otherwise I think LSZH would be  great like EDDF or LEBL.

Ok, lots of other people seem to be happy with the performance but it will of course be dependent on your hardware and settings.

Since I don't have GES that won't affect me.

Thanks for the info!
