Aerosoft has released Maastricht-Aachen Airport, a small international airport, located about 10km north east of the city of Maastricht and about 30km north west of the city of Aachen. It is the second largest hub for cargo flights in the Netherlands. Mainly low-cost-carrier like Ryanair or German Wings use the airport for passenger flights to holiday destinations in southern Europe.
The Maastricht Upper Area Control Centre (MUAC) of the European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation (EUROCONTROL) is also located at the airport. The Air Traffic Control of the complete upper air space of northern Germany, Benelux and northern France is operated from here.
This rendition of the airport for XPlane was made by XYZ Visuals, the creators of Airport Amsterdam. The airport itself has been faithfully recreated with high resolution aerial images, numerous custom 3D objects and exact ground markings. It also includes an impressive night lightning.

Shade Tree Micro Aviation (STMA) has released the Pilatus PC-12/47G for X-Plane 10 and 11.
The aircraft features 15 high-resolution liveries, animated doors, realistic lighting and wing icing effects. The flight model was made with the cooperation of a Swiss PC-12 pilot and is designed to be used by both casual X-Plane users and professional pilots.
Other features include a virtual cockpit, which uses the new X-Plane manipulator and the systems and instruments replicate the ones in the real aircraft. The complex custom avionics include two X-Plane XP530 GPS, both of which are controlled through the PC-12 Electronic Flight Control System (EFIS). This can be autopilot-coupled, providing the ability to fly complex flight plans based on VOR/ADF or RNAV waypoints.
External animations are a ground power unit and a remote control tug to move the aircraft into and out of our HangarOps animated hangers. The package also comes with a new popup STMA dock which enables you to operate the doors and window blinds; pop up portions of the instrument panels to make adjusting settings more easy for aging eyes; and instantaneously swapping out the cabin between the Luxury Passenger and Medical Evacuation.
Documentation consists of real equipment manuals and authentic Pilatus PC-12/47 pilots information manual (PIM) to describe the aircraft’s systems.
An auto-updater is also included to checks for updates every time you load an AU-enabled model in X-Plane.
