HHAS - Asmara - Eritrea

XP-Africa is pleased to present HHAS Asmara - Eritrea

HHAS Asmara was originally created for FS by Nuhaid Abdulkhaleq and was converted by Michel Picard (a.k.a Brother from XPFR.org) for X-Plane.

from the read-me:
HHAS is Asmara’s international airfield, close to the capital of Eritrea. It is also a base of the Eritrean Air force. The airfield has two asphalt runways : - 07/25, 3000 meters long by 45 meters wide, equipped with an ILS (07) and landing light aids - 12/30, 1950 long by 45 meters wide, much less sophisticated and mainly used by military planes. HHAS is a high altitude airport : 2335 meters (7660 feet) and is unable to welcome the largest jet aircraft which should use Massawa international airport situated by the red Sea instead.
Please note that this scenery uses OpenSceneryX - if you do not have it yet, please grab the latest free installer from http://www.opensceneryx.com .

GOSS - Saint-Louis - Sénégal v2.0

Dear XP-Africa users,

It's a great pleasure for the XP-Africa team to present this new version of Saint-Louis Airport in Senegal.

(the messed up fence in the screenshot has been corrected since...)
The original GOSS Saint-Louis scenery was created for Flight Simulator by Jean Charbonnel, who was kind enough to allow us to convert and adapt his work to X-Plane.

You can visit his website and leave him a little thank you here:


This V2 uses photoreal ground textures created using Mario Cavicchi's excellent GMaps script (http://members.ferrara.linux.it/cavicchi/GMaps/)
as well as static and animated objects by Al-Youx, Beber, pixelmaster and Mr3D (Truck, IVECO, LandRover,birds, grass etc. ...).
It also featured the now closed (but rendered useable for your pleasure) 01/19 runway, more realistic surroundings and a corercted apt.dat . Night lighting and other goodies and eye-candy features have been added as well.


This package is enhanced with objects from the OpenSceneryX
library and won't work propperly without it.
For those who do not have it yet, you can download the latest
package installer here:

Senegal Airfields v1.0

XP-Africa is very proud to present Senegal Airfields Scenery v1.0 - a collaborative project that aims at covering most known airfields and other esoteric strips in Sénégal.

This package was originally started as a complementary scenery pack for GOSS - Saint-Louis v2, but has now extended far beyond that point - we now have 11 airfields and there are a lot more to come, inside Senegal but also in the bordering countries.

Senegal Airfields Scenery includes the following airports and airstrips:

GO66 Dodji (dirt strip)
GOOG Linguere (dirt strip) (this one wasn't in X-Plane's database)
GOOK Kaolak
GODK Kolda Nord
GONK(NIK) Niokolo Koba
GOSM Matam-Ouro Sogui (dirt strip)
GOSP Podor (dirt strip)
GOTK Kedougou
GOTS Simenti
GOTT Tambacounda
GQNK Kaedi (Mauritania)

All airfields have photoreal ground layout.

There are a few aobjects that have been found in other scenery packs and object libraries and we'd like to use the occasion to thank the authors and all the people who have contributed to the latest XP-Africa sceneries:

Beber, Chouchou2750, After, @lex, Al-Youx, Mr3D, Brother, Fred Kabalu, Jean Charbonnel, Camilli de Bellis, Bob Whit, as well as the entire, ever so supportive XPFR team (http://www.xpfr.org).
We'd also like to thank Mario Cavicchi for his amazing GMaps scenery creation tool that we're using all the time now, as well as the OpenSceneryX project and all those who contribute to this great object library.

PLEASE NOTE: This scenery makes intensive use of OpenSceneryX.
You may use this scenery without it but you'd miss out on most buildings and a lot of other nice decoration - if you don't have this unavoidable object library installed yet, grab the free and handy installer here:
