X-Plane Photographic Scenery

Smartening up England and Wales in the X-Plane 9 flight sim.


First Class Simulations , in association with RC Simulations, is proud to announce the release of X-Plane Photographic Scenery for Windows based PC and Apple Macintosh platforms running the X-Plane 9 Flight Simulator.

With the highest quality aerial photographic imagery and terrain data that technology can provide, X-Plane Photographic Scenery offers unparalleled scenery quality and allows the user to recreate flights over the length and breadth of England and Wales in breathtaking photographic detail, from within the X-Plane 9 simulation.

This stunning scenery brings the UK to life in X-Plane 9. With custom imagery at a resolution of  1 metre per pixel, every landscape feature, road and building is visible in glorious photographic detail! The underlying 10 metre mesh further enhances the realism by sharpening the relief of terrain data, adding a crisp clarity to every mountain and geographic feature.

"X-Plane Photographic Scenery has a wide appeal", explained Robert Stallibrass, Managing Director of First Class Simulations, "ranging from home flight simulation, to pilots and aviation organisations looking for an ideal training and refresher tool. The combination of X-Plane 9 and X-Plane Photographic scenery brings professional standard simulation to the desktop at an affordable price"

X-Plane Photographic scenery is split into 4 packs, each sold separately. Cumulatively the packs provide complete photographic scenery coverage for England and Wales.

Volume 1: South-East England, brings the teeming metropolis of London and its myriad of suburbs to life in vivid detail. In addition to every town and city in the South-East, the panoramic vista of the coastline stretches as far as the Isle of Wight encompassing thousands of square miles of pastoral tranquillity.

Volume 2: South-West England and South Wales offers full coverage of counties such as Devon, Cornwall and Somerset where the idyllic beauty of England and Wales is brought into sharp focus. From Bristol to Newport, Cardiff and Swansea, Plymouth and Lands End. Every square mile of the South-West and South Wales is recreated in rich photographic detail

Volume 3: North Wales, West Midlands and North-West highlights North Wales, from one of the world's most dramatic coastlines to the sheer splendour of Snowdonia. Cities such as Birmingham and Manchester are also featured in high detail.
