France VFR - Obstacles & VFR landmarks is an add-on for Prepar3D covering the entire French territory and designed to add more than 500,000 landmarks to the scenery, including virtually all of the obstacles to navigation identified by the SIA (Service for Aeronautical Information), that have been qualified and geo-referenced.

The aim of this product is to provide a true benchmark of obstacles and landmarks for VFR simulated navigation. We have set up a monitoring and reporting system that allows us to regularly specify, modify existing data and add new objects or object classes.

More than 4000 obstacles identified by S.I.A. including:

  • 1,000 radio and television antennas, telecommunications towers
  • 1,000 microwave towers and telecom transmitters
  • 200 cooling towers, smokestacks and flares
  • 500 water towers
  • 130 lighthouses
  • Churches
  • Largest bridges and viaducts
  • Entire set of thermal and nuclear power plants
Details of obstacles and landmarks included:

  • 350,000 power towers with lighting in the vicinity of airports, representing virtually all High Voltage and Extra High Voltage networks
  • 3,000 HV substations
  • 7,500 windmills
  • 65,000 churches, cathedrals, basilicas, chapels and religious buildings
  • 55,000 agricultural greenhouse
  • 23,000 castles
  • 11,000 water towers
  • 5,000 agricultural silos
  • 12,000 industrial tanks
  • 14,000 antennas
  • 3,500 lifts/cable cars
Locations are geo-referenced to ensure compatibility with any other geo-referenced product.

Objects design-optimised to add thousands without significant loss of frame rate.

This add-on is compatible with all types of add-ons, such as landclass or photo sceneries. It must be set in the scenery library over 'photo' and 'landclass' sceneries and below the local sceneries such as airports.
 
As VFR France - Obstacles & VFR Landmarks is built upon geo-referenced data, we recommend the combined use of a high resolution mesh such as France VFR  NEXTMesh France.
