my airports will melt down your computer

We develop a new style: we get a very high precision satellite image (ZL21) and we build around it with no need for gazillions of objects anymore, the objects are already present from a bird view. We add 2D where aircraft taxi and park, we create the buildings, add some green, lights and nav objects. Finally we create traffic patterns and live traffic with X-Life. And it looks just perfect and real. We have abundant screenshots on display.

A huge library and 58 detailed airports in Belgium, Florida, Hawaii, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Texas.

All airports have customized buildings made with the latest version of SketchUp. Placement is based upon USGS imagery from SAS Planet used in the products. Imagery is refined in GIMP.

And it’s free!

We use World Editor 2 for the placement of objects, sat imagery, ATC air traffic control, traffic flows depending on time, wind, aircraft type, air & ground service vehicles. We pay attention to details and attractive designs by using TWY edges, tire tracks, more precise roads, …

We have a library of objects called NAPS library. Our occasional partners in design are Cami De Bellis and Marc Leydecker.

X-Life  is our preferred traffic plugin and we implement it wherever it’s possible.

This scenery contains data generated from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) which is available in the public domain.

Ten years of hard work.
