    Just got this last week  - although at a discount as I already had the P3D version.

    If you like flying in France and do it frequently - esp in VFR, this is a must. Not cheap - but tens of thousands of salient objects; bridges, power stations, windmills, lighthouses - I mean France without Churches and Water Towers - come on!

    I can't vouch for nationwide accuracy - but in the areas I am familiar with (Cote d'Azure and Basse Normandy) it looked pretty good. Even Renault's Chateau on Chausey Island is there (offshore Granville, Normandy - LFRF).

    So thumbs up from me! We need it for the UK now.
