Updated “NAPS” Florida Airports

You’ll all aware that we host a large collection of freeware add-on airports from NAPS (North Atlantic and Pacific Scenery) or also known as Freddy De Pues. On behalf of Freddy De Pues we’ve started updating a lot of his American airports, starting March 2020 with the US state Florida airports.

The reason for this update is because we offer now two packages. Package number 1 is for those who own the Orbx TrueEarth US Florida HD or SD version. The other package and thus the second download button is for the CLASSIC version and sometimes even CLASSIC_DISCONTINUED. Te Classic version is for those simmers who would like to update their airport, but don’t have Orbx TrueEarth US Florida.

The CLASSIC_DISCONTINUED is basically the same as the CLASSIC but only in those cases whenever applicable, this will no longer be updated by Freddy De Pues. To be able to download these updated Florida NAPS packages, you need to have an account with us. For those who have an account, check out the updated packages via our menu “Downloads – Sceneries – Freddy De Pues – Florida“.
