Surprised not to see a post about it. They've announced it yesterday on their FB page, it looks awesome too. Didn't see anything on their website yet so you'll have to check their FB for screenshots. Looks like they're close to release too.

I'm sure it will probably be up to the usual FB standards, which is excellent.

I'll probably pass on this one though, I just don't do much flying in Ecuador.

I think it's a nice stop in South America, being there personally once and chatting with some Lufthansa pilots at SEQM, apparently the approaches in the area could be very challenging, plus it could be a nice starting point to fly around the Amazon, which I've personally never done in FSX or P3D.

Great new destination for cargo which can include Santiago and Quito.

Wonderful news. More good destinations in South America are desperately needed. I love flying there since ORBX released South America, but there is only a handful of good airports available. I hope that Africa will be next, once ORBX has released that continent.

At least it`s an airport no other developer has done.

Yes, and in an under-served area. The airport has some challenging and interesting approaches and is an important cargo hub for South America, along with some passenger routes to North, Central and South American hubs.

Excellent. I was there a short time ago. Nice to see SA airports being developed.

It's a challenging one, for sure.  Towering 15000' cumulogranite clouds all around, and high elevation (7900' MSL) make getting in and out of there a nontrivial affair. 

I do hope the dev is going to model the significant runway slope (~1%).

Regards

Interesting airport and really new, as it was build only three or four years ago, as I remember. They closed down the old and dangerous SEQU which was located inside the city of Quito.

Cheers, Ed

Great location, wish more developers would take-up the slack in other countries especially since they are more FPS friendly and just as beautiful.  It's usually the countries I've never lived in or visited real world that I want to visit the most in the simulated world.

Cheers, Rob.

I'm waiting for A A Sceneries to do VBTS Suvarnabhumi for V4 stunning airport, it`s being worked on.   

Again a part of the world that would make a good stop over for long haul to Hong Kong.

Are you sure? Actually he has been very busy for years now with his Beijing scenery and I saw no statement that he is even thinking about VTBS for v4?!

Sounds like Navy flier terminology...and darned funny. Good one!
