Azuero Airfields

Azuero Lite X

It is a component of the Panama Lite X add-on scenery product for FSX. This component covers all the airfields of the Azuero Peninsula which is on the middle southern part of Panama. This package updates the default FSX scenery -which is highly inaccurate- with the following enhancements over the default:

  • The entire Eastern and part of the Southern coast of the Azuero Peninsula has been corrected.
  • Added missing or improperly depicted major rivers, these serve as landmarks for visual flight
  • Used a more realistic landclass
  • Added several visual landmarks near the airports to more closely reflect real life.
  • Updated navigation aids, codes and geographical locations
  • Corrected airfield names and their geographical location (town/city, province/state) which are missing in the default FSX flight planner.
  • Other coastal areas such as islands have been updated and enhanced as well.

The following airfields are covered by the Azuero X add-on and correspond to all known real life airfields in the area.

  • Capt. Alonso Valderrama in Chitre, Herrera, Panama. MPCE
  • Capt. Justiniano Montenegro in Pedasi, Los Santos, Panama. MP00.
  • Capt. Augusto Vergara in Guarare, Los Santos, Panama. MP20.
  • La Candelaria in Pocri, Los Santos, Panama. MP04. [missing in default FSX]

The add-on scenery including its custom modeled buildings cannot be distributed in peer-to-peer networks add-on sites or any other sort of sharing. They are available through authorized resellers. Legal action will be taken against pirates.

However do understand this is "Lite" scenery, it is light on framerates and I have tried as much as possible -with limitations- to recreate the surrounding areas to better match real life. The default scenery is nearly devoid of vegetation and with no visual landmarks suitable for VFR. Do not expect 3D grass waving at you.

Plenty of photos with comparisons between standard and with add-on have been uploaded to the Lord of Wings Flight SimulationFacebook page.

Some of the airfields in the Azuero Lite X package may contain navigational charts. Do note however that these charts were made by us and must never be used for real life navigation. They are only provided (as simple as they are) for the convenience of the flight simmer enjoying this package.

Chitre, Herrera

The Capt. Alonso Valderrama (ICAO: MPCE) airport is located in the town of Chitre head of the Herreraprovince. this airport was originally more active than nowadays. it was beautifully remodelled a few years ago but there is no commercial traffic anymore due to the (panama!) presence of a municipal waste facility that produces a lot of smoke when the waste is burn. approaches are also endangered a bit because the airport neighbors with a national bird sanctuary.

This add-on is a complete rework because the stock airport only has a plain and totally bare landing strip. We have added navigational and visual aids that are not present in the stock version, greatly improved VFR (in case you get lost) and remodelled the coastline and among other things added the La Villa river which is an important landmark missing in the default scenery.

La Candelaria, Los Santos

La Candelaria is nowadays an abandoned dirt airstrip in the town of the same name, district of Pocri in Los Santos province. It is provided as a bonus with a nicely modeled dirt airstrip with custom objects typical of the region, a simple hangar for aerobatics or to store your plane and an amphibian port at the nearby Mensabe river so that you can ferry tourists to Isla Iguana (Iguana Island) near Pedasi or cross the peninsula to Coiba Island in Veraguas.

Pedasi, Los Santos

VFR IFR Helipad Amphibian VOR DME NDB Lights Buildings Charts

The Capt. Justiniani Montenegro (ICAO: MP00*) airport is located in the town of Pedasi, Los Santos. The original airport (present in Flight Simulator) was near the beach but suffered from wind currents and also the land was bought by a foreign investor. A new airfield was built further inland but not very far. There are commercial flights to the Pedasi airfield.

Pedasi - Stock (default) airfield
Pedasi - Panorama with our add-on
Pedasi - Approach with boring default (FSX)
Pedasi - Approach with our add-on
Pedasi - Default/stock Iguana Island

The stock airport is just a plain airstrip without buildings and surrounded by scarce vegetation. As a bonus the Azuero Lite X package has both the improved original airfield as well as the new one. The terminal building of both airfields is just a small house (both in the scenery and in real life). Pocri and Purio rivers.
