Between 2014 and 2018, a group of Spanish flight simulation
fans, working independently, have developed FREE photographic
scenery for FSX covering the whole country, at a resolution
of 1pixel/metre, using free imagery from the Spanish National
Geographic Institute (PNOA).
The work is brilliant and all of them made a great effort, but until now it was rather complicated trying to download and install all the areas of the scenery, and you needed to know some Spanish geography to put all the files in the correct place.
So our Member Francisco Garcia Garrido created tables and
maps to help him, with links to all the files in appropriate
order and the areas drawn over a map of Spain. When finished,
he decided to give it a polish and publish it. The result is this
manual. Do download this manual before attempting to download
the scenery - for your own sanity it is suggested!
For one week each summer, the US Experimental Aircraft association
(EAA) members and aviation enthusiasts totaling more than 500,000
from more than 60 countries attend EAA AirVenture at Wittman
Regional Airport (KOSH), Wisconsin, USA, where they rekindle
friendships and celebrate the past, present and future in the
world of flight. The event is mirrored on VATSIM at the same
time. If you wish to join in the fun, this 96Mb download includes
a highly detailed airport, and visual scenery of the surrounding
area to aid navigation to the event.

Gerry Winskill's UK Farm Strips for FSX
The three volumes of UK Farm Strips by Gerry, originally issued
for FS9 have been modified by him to be compatible with FSX.
In this FSX version, all parts need to be downloaded, because
all of the farms are combined in one scenery volume. Because
of the size, it has been split into 3 downloads, all of which
are essential. Part 1 is Library Objects 8.45 Mb, part 2 is
Textures 19.3 Mb, and part 3 is Scenery 482 Kb. They were originally
designed for use with the FS9 Horizon Simulations VFR GM photoscenery
of England and Wales, and are still compatible with that scenery.
They have been reworked for FSX, and are compatible
with the more recent UK photo sceneries. Part 4 with 20 new
airstrips for FSX was added to the collection in 2009.

Ten private airfields (Farm Strips) created by club member Pete Chapman. These complement the work done by Gerry Winskill for the rest of England and Wales.

Our member Kevin Firth has created a completely new set of "scenery" files which don't appear in FSX as you fly, but do show on the map. They also are displayed in Plan-G. These files provide the pilot with all the up to date controlled airspace boundaries for the UK. UK Controlled Airspace changes every year, and Kevin has promised to try and keep these files current, so check the version date to be sure you have the latest.
ANO stands for Air Navigation Obstacles - "sticky up things" to
quote the designer of this scenery, Gerry Winskill. Anything
which sticks up more than 300 feet above the surrounding terrain
is an ANO and Gerry has reproduced them all. In two volumes.
Unzip to a temporary directory and follow the included instructions.
Oil tanks and flare stacks make very obvious landmarks. Gerry has recreated all of the UK refineries in this set.
Anthony Sheehy has produced a very nice little scenery for
Deanland Airfield (EGKL). Set in the rolling Sussex Downs,
it's an ideal grass strip for a short hop from Shoreham or
Biggin Hill. the Airfield has a smart real
world website to
provide further information.
Airfield scenery for FSX. See included readme file for installation
instructions. Requires some addon libraries, which can be downloaded
from avsim and flightsim.com By Tim Arnot.
