Installation

The installation of Barinas is very simple and comes with a custom installer that they made. It just inserts your serial key and your flight simulator location, after that you’re ready.

Documentation

This special edition of Barinas came only with a review document prepared for us that saved me a lot of time during the review. Here takes a look! The only con that it has is that if you don’t know Spanish, you got some bad luck trying to understand it. On the other side, it comes with charts and basic information about the airport.

*CFG Was deleted before doing the review*

The performance for me was smooth and good, high fps around 30 to 60 FPS and a VAS amount between 300MB’s and 750MB’s. And that with complex aircraft’s!

The Airport

Barinas is a small airport just with two runways and a couple of parking with a hanger and fire department. Latin Wings made a job while doing their initial airport, better than most of the developers do on the preliminary tries. However, they still room for a lot to improve on area like texturing and modeling, including night lighting. The airport has one Cessna Citation and looks nice, and an affable ground poly maybe the best thing they did on this product.

The Verdict

Barinas is a great airport for a two people studio making their spot on this competitive place. We may be a small community but with a lot of talent aboard! Latin Wings staff, my ratings are below and according to them; you may see what to improve and what continue doing well. If you’re a Venezuela frequent flyer or from there this is a must buy, or if you love small airports!

You can buy the airport at Simmarket for $12. 84USD. Buy here!
