AmSim, a new development team from Armenia, has released Palermo’s Falcone Borsellino Airport (LICJ) for Microsoft Flight Simulator. After starting with the re-creation of some airports in their home and neighboring countries, AmSim is now extending a little further beyond Armenia’s frontiers into more well-known regions, starting with Palermo, in Italy.
Falcone Borsellino Airport is the second busiest airport in Sicily, after Catania’s Fontanarossa Airport. Still, it handled a record of 7 million passengers in 2019, making it a popular destination for those looking to visit this Mediterranean island. It was named after anti-mafia magistrates Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino, who were murdered in 1992.
AmSim has recently launched this airport for MSFS, in what appears to be a nicely detailed and authentic scenery. Sitting neatly between sea and mountains on the northwestern coast of Sicily, Palermo Airport is a very scenic location for approaching and departing airplanes, so it deserves to be upgraded into a bespoke scenery in MSFS, particularly for those who enjoy flying in the area.
AmSim doesn’t provide a detailed feature list, but it’s clear from the official product images that the developers re-created Palermo Airport with a significant attention to the detail. From the terminal buildings to the parking spaces, across the custom roads that connect to the airport or the realistic apron and runway textures, there’s plenty to take notice here and consider as a next purchase if you’re either familiar with the area, or just looking for a more detailed airport to explore this beautiful region.
AmSim’s Palermo Airport is available directly in the MSFS Marketplace, but also through Orbx Direct, priced at around €9.99 in both places.
