Stunning Freeware Scenery – Locher Airfield (FSX & P3D)

8 October, 2017


Locher/Sarentino Airfield (ICAO LILX) is located in the mountains of north Italy, and this awesome FREEWARE scenery for FSX & P3D is bought to us by the legendary “Vassilios Dimoulas”.

This piece of scenery is great for not only proving your flying skills, but also to enjoy a different kind of flying, and to appreciate how different it is that the norm.

Flying in the mountainous areas can be quiet challenging, and the more we fly, the more we start to respect and appreciate how high altitude affects aerodynamics, and the way an aircraft will fly with constant differing weather and wind conditions, not to mention severe drafts that affect the plane in a severe way.

One of the interesting things about this airport is that the runway is simple a ‘grass strip’ on  a sloped land. The plane will have to be positioned on top of the strip looking south for takeoff. You have to use your brakes intelligently as the slope is very steep. Let me tell you one thing. Every takeoff and landing on this grass strip will be immensely difficult specially for those poor passengers at the back ;). Ah.. and before i forget, keep a close eye on power cables on the takeoff/landing path, as it could seriously cause damage to your aircraft!

Downloading and Installing:

You can pick this up and DOWNLOAD it on the AVSIM LIBRARY (link here).

For installation instructions, please follow the README pdf which gives you step by step instructions on how to install this. Generally, you will have to add the scenery and texture folders to your ‘Addon Scenery’ folder and active it on the FSX scenery manager.

Below are some screenshots for you to take a look at:

  • Scenery is absolutely awesome although I’m having a problem while on the grass runway… the plane seems to ride up and down the slope in a flat, level position. If going up the hill, the nose gear will be hidden below the ground. If going downhill, the nose gear will appear to be floating – both scenarios show the main gear correctly contacting the ground. Anything I’m missing here or is this just the way the scenery is?
