#Real-Life #Handcrafted France Exclusive Drag and Drop
Le Touquet – Côte d'Opale Airport (IATA: LTQ, ICAO: LFAT) is an international airport located in the north of France. LFAT has a control and weather service, pilot and tourist shop, refueling facilities, air maintenance companies and pilot training. A long runway (1850 meters / 6000 ft) ILS and RNP approaches, on site Customs service and located just at the north coast line, all these elevates Le Touquet airport as a perfect entry gateway for UK pilots and their passengers, to visit France. Caution, the airport can likely be covered by sea haze in few minutes!

Features List

This upgrade for the default Microsoft Flight Simulator scenery features :
  • New buildings to replace all default.
  • All taxiway names and taxiways signs updated.
  • Plenty of asphalt patches on taxiways and apron to enhance immersion and weathered ground.
  • Real pilot as-real-as-it-gets special -> the old decommissioned railway is recreated and simulates bumps. Try by taxiing from main apron to T3 holding point.
  • Parking re-positioned and re-designed. Most are "Dock_Ga" type to remove unrealistic ground support except for 3 of them on main apron close the terminal to match as much as possible reality.
  • Parking lines and helipad added.
  • Crossing the decommissioned 25 runways required to slow down if you are concerned by prop strike
  • Terraforming along La Canche river (and at the main Le Touquet beach just for fun)
  • New PAPI added and ILS facilities.
  • Waste water treatment plan added to improve immersion in final runway 31.
  • Fuel station repositioned and redesigned.
  • Main public car parks redesigned and populated.
  • Static Helicopter Dauphin SA.365N SP Marine Nationale and Robinson R44 Raven (3D model by E.Baranger)
  • (New 2.3) Static Bell Jet Ranger
  • (New 2.3) All new control tower with the iconic green color

How to install?

Unzip the file into your Community folder. Once installed go to LFAT Le Touquet as usual, the scenery automatically replace the stock one.

Limitation

It's only my third airport after (see KMYF Montgomery Gibbs Exec field KMYF and Cosne-sur Loire LFGH). It's made with 100% default buildings and objects but largely increased immersion compared to the default. No handmade texture or 3D objects have been designed, because It's far beyond my design skill ;) Neverless, in real as a private pilot, I fly at Le Touquet dozen of time and all these give a feeling of "it looks like what we have in real". It's an amateur and passionate real pilot work. Just for the fun of doing it and sharing with the community ! 

Tools used: ADE Beta 12 for MSFS to generate the initial .xml project file, then all the design, modification and placement are done with the included MSFS SDK editor. Thank you to Didier B., Farid L and Marc L. for their numerous Beta tests.

    De rien! Je n'irais pas jusqu'à dire que tout le plaisir est pour moi mais... C'est amusant à faire. It was not really a sweet road to drive, but exploring Blender and MSFS Scenery Editor is cool adventure for a rookie like ;)

    Merci beaucoup. Pourriez-vous vous attaquer à l'estuaire de la Canche et au front de mer. J'ai mal quand je vois ça mais je suis incapable de contribuer à un projet.

    Love to... But frankly speaking I'm not eager to work on something else than directly related to aviation in Microsoft Flight Simulator. Starting with the coastline is an endless task ;)

    You're welcome. Hope you retrieve some feeling thanks to the scenery. En espérant que la scène aide à l'immersion ;)

    Merci! This is a result of some work for sure mostly because I'm totally débutant :) but also a cool way to discover what the scenery editor is capable of. Awesome to see that after 6 months and from the first version the SDK was released for free (even with a lot of room for improvement) !
