The new France VFR Regional series was designed and developed to provide a VFR flight environment as realistic as possible. It is the result of years of experience and practice in flight simulation and 3D modelling.

VFR Regional products embed all enhancements from the new 3DAutomation technology developed by France VFR. This technology already allows us to generate the most realistic and dense environments ever seen. It is not intended to model the real world accurately but to create a copy 'as real as it gets' on a massive scale. It will evolve to adapt to the needs and new data available.

Technical specifications

  • Ground textures from 0.8 to 1.20 metre / pixel resolution from IGN aerial photography reworked for an optimal visual rendition in P3D (summer only)
  • Dedicated mesh with high definition 4.75 metres (LOD13)
  • Lakes and rivers with navigable waters fitting the texture
  • Transparency management of the seabed on the entire scene
  • Semi-detailed generic airports including flatten platform correction
  • Obstacles and VFR landmarks modelled on the entire scene including the official SIA database (antennas, towers, water towers, wind turbines, various constructions etc.)
  • Hundreds of thousands of objects and notable buildings integrated into the environment (churches, power plants, silos, castles, industrial tanks, bridges, tolls, cranes, boats, streetlights, road signs etc.)
  • Integration of 3D Automation technology allowing multi-million buildings and realistic vegetation areas fitting geographic specs
  • Extremely dense and optimised vegetation coverage using a custom rendering module controlled by artificial intelligence (AI)
  • Autogen buildings including additional specific and optimised 3D variations
  • Geo-referenced data for maximum compatibility with future add-ons installed on the same area
  • Development process 100% Lockheed Martin SDK specifications compliant, ensuring maximum compatibility with new releases
  • SIA  VAC - IAC - ARRDEP charts provided


INSTALLATION

Every France VFR product provides an automated installation program consisting of one or more executable files, which you should unzip to your desktop first.
