Looking for good Spanish airports that can take a 737

Recommended Posts

What good Spanish airports are there out there that can take a 737 and that were not developed by SimWings or Justsim?

I decided to steer clear of both these developers going forward and focus on nothing but top-notch products like those developed by FlyTampa, Jo Erlend Sund and even some Taxi2Gate products although not quite up there with FlyTampa and Jo. I already have LEBB from Orbx which is a very scenic and nice destination but I have a hard time with how you never get moving jetways with Orbx products.

Thanks in advance for any tips!

I like Madeira from Aerosoft, is not Spanish but is quite a challenge to land there..

Fun to fly..

Maybe also Canary Islands ? Fuerteventura by MK Studios (e.g. at Simmarket) is quite nice,  SODE jetways included.

Latinvfr has an excellent LEBL. Great performance and includes the city.

RFSceneryBuilding's LEAS (Oviedo Asturias) is a good one. 

Justsim has P3D versions of LEJR (Jerez/La Parra) and LEGE (Girona/La Costa) that look interesting.

Latinwings made a pretty nice version of Valencia (LEVC), they’re also working on both Almeria (LEAM), and Madrid (LEMD).

I don't have any Latinwings scenery so maybe it's time to give them a go.

I'm considering LEBL which feels like a destination you should have in your arsenal of virtual airports.

If you want LEBL please get the Simwings version it's amazing with photo real around 30-40 miles all round. Looks stunning and performance is also fantastic.

Good to hear you're happy with the SimWings version of LEBL but like I said in my initial post I decided to keep away from more SimWings airports since I haven't been that happy with them.

Edited to add the reason why I don't want more SimWings airports.

A bit hard to put my finger on why I don't like them but I guess the main reason is I don't think they look nor feel realistic. Looking at all the SimWings airports I already have (but have now uninstalled), I always get this feeling everything is just "painted" looking like a game both looking at the buildings, the ground textures etc etc compared to some other airports developed by FlyTampa for example like EKCH (one of my all time favorites) where it actually feels like you're at the real airport.

Sorry for being vague. Again, hard to describe but that's how I feel about it.

There are two nice free airports developed by Simzaleak, LEPP and LESO.

LEPP can receive a 737 and has a nice VOR approach.

Happy flights

+1 Colonel Scott's advice is like the old E.F. Hutton Commercials,... "when Bob Scott speaks, people listen" and if not; they should!

Solid recommendation here concur 100%.

 A slightly smaller field traffic wise but great it has atmosphere and a great location at a reasonable price.

Well, with that said I guess I'll have to move it to the top of my list :happy:

What about ORBx Bilbao?

I like it. Not one of the best ones out there but still quite good.

...but developed by SimWings which I again don't prefer for reasons already mentioned.

Thanks though for your input!

I own all 3 LEBL : Justsim , LatinVFR and AS. Imho the AS version is the best. 

Also I use Prealsoft Barcelona with it as that makes it even more realistic.

On a side note (and apologies for a side step to the main thread topic).......can someone explain to me why ORBx LEBB Bilbao requires FTX Global or FTX Open LC Europe installed? The ORBx UK airports state that FTX England needs to be installed to use them, but that is NOT the case......

Guessing here but probably because LEBB relies on s some common stuff in FTX Global shared by many of their products.

Question: What are your reasons against those developers? Have some of their airports and they are really nice?! I am just curious...
