UPDATE – It didn’t take long! Just a few days after initially previewing their new airport, LatinVFR have now released their recreation of Madrid’s LEMD Barajas Airport for MSFS. Now available for $17.99. Check the original article below for more details.
LatinVFR continues their effort to bring their airport portfolio to the new Microsoft Flight Simulator. This time it seems that Madrid’s Barajas Airport (LEMD) should be the next instalment, after some image previews were shared by LatinVFR on the studio’s social media.
Our Spanish readers will be happy to know that Spain’s largest airport is getting some special treatment, which is happening not much after their second largest airport, in Barcelona, got the same attention from LatinVFR.
Barajas Airport is absolutely massive, with 4 runways and 5 terminals. Besides being the 6th busiest in Europe, in terms of passenger numbers, it’s actually the second largest, just behind Paris’ Charles de Gaulle.
Besides the usual attention to detail in order to bring the airport to a realistic depiction of the real deal, it seems LatinVFR is also including some points of interest. In one of the previews we can see a custom model of the Royal Palace, which is about 20km from the airport.
Other than the good looking images, the developers didn’t share much additional information. There’s no release date yet, but it should be just around the corner. Other than that, there’s just the hint that owners of the existing P3D version will be eligible to a nice discount to this new updated version for MSFS.
Besides the new images of Barajas for MSFS, you may also want to check out the official trailer that was released for the Prepar3D version. While it obviously represents the airport for a different platform, it may be a good indication of what to expect:
