FlyTampa Grenadines

I had no idea this had been released until I went over to the FlyTampa website to check for updates. Anyone planning on getting it? I can't say that I fly to the Grenadines regularly, although it looks good fun for island hopping. It's FSX only.

How'd they get sloped runways to work? I thought it was meant to work in FSX but never did properly.

I heard they didn't really work and bounced the aircraft around. Or maybe that was an older version of some Lukla scenery I'm thinking of.

You heard somewhat correct, the worked pretty well but there is one spot that does make the aircraft bounce. Otherwise it's nice.

Ah cool, glad to hear it mostly worked out and the concept is proved. I'v never tried it but will have to now.
