VFR LANDMARKS

X-landmarks products enhance your X-Plane® simulator with hundreds of thousands VFR Landmarks and obstacles to air navigation, allowing VFR pilots to experience a new realistic environment.
These added object layers are suitable either for default X-Plane® terrain, or generic or photo-realistic addons.

X-landmarks series are developped in cooperation with Simulation DATA , a company commited for the constitution, the management, the qualification and the treatment of databases for aeronautical simulation either for professional and gaming.

Pylone

X-landmarks FRANCE is an add-on for X-Plane® covering the entire French territory by adding to the initial scenery more than 500 000 objects including the totality of objects listed by the SIA (French Aeronautical Service Information) that have been geo-referenced and qualified.

The ambition of this product is to provide a reference in terms of obstacles and VFR landmarks for simulated air navigation. We will shortly set up a monitoring and reporting that will regularly specify, modify, add new objects or object classes..

X-landmarks FRANCE revision is compatible both with X-Plane® 9 & 10 versions. It is compatible with any addon of any type landclass or photo, provided that they are correctly georeferenced. Installation involves no modification of X-Plane ® system files and you can activate or disable as necessary as any other layer.
