Indeed, Patrick

We're also satisfied with all allready released FlyTampa Airports. No Problem. But now it's time for Zurich. Agree? ;)

Greets, Mike

To "Jetstream":

Believe me we Swiss people would be happy to have a Zurich scenery as "good" as Simflyers' KLAX, but both LSZH-sceneries available are rather crappy and simply out-dated in terms of scenery designing techniques.

Just wait for Simflyers' KLAX V2 before you continue to request yet another KLAX, how'd you know they won't do a good job? And KSFO is already on the FlyTampa To-Do-list anyway.

But in the end we will buy every scenery from FlyTampa regardless if it is KLAX, KSFO or KZRH ;) because FlyTampa simply is the BEST!

Hi Patrick,

of course it would be great to see Zurich first but I am sure that a lot of users would already be very happy to know that LSZH is on the "to do-list". We also like US airports and I am sure that FlyTampa will find a solution so that both sides of the pond can be happy.

I agree to all who vote for LSZH.
We NEED a good version for this major european airport with very interesting layout.
I am waiting for years now that Flylogic rebuilt a good version, but they fault.
My personal wish is a good integration from the airport to the surrounding like FlyTampa do this before :-)
Because this i vote for LSZH
DO IT !!!

Although it is easy to understand why this poll appears rigged, I believe the Swiss community has spoken.

To my fellow non-Swiss: I voted for Zurich, sorry to disappoint those hoping for LAX! (or any other airport, for that matter)

LAX was a pipe dream anyway. It is a huge airport, and would take a significant amount of time to develop (my guess, up to six months with FlyTampa quality). I hope they continue to concentrate their efforts on airports that have not been released by other developers, even if the other stuff is not quite up to FlyTampa quality. Hopefully Simflyers does a decent job :wink: on KLAXv2, which I believe will be released within the next week.

We have to remember that as far as I can tell, this is really a two man company, and I don't believe George has as much time as Martin to work on the projects.

From hints dropped on the forum, my guess is something is going to be released soon, and my guess the airports currently under construction are KSFO and KSEA. Just a hunch. What I really like is that these airports fit in nicely with Megascenery! :D

It is rediculous that a crowd of swiss flightsimmers think they will get Zürich as one of the next if they flood this foum with votes for this airport.

It would no problem for me to find 200 people to get registered and vote for KLAX here but that would be silly and missed the point.....are we in a Kindergarten here or what? ***SHAKEHEAD***

NO, fortunately POLAR AIR and ATLAS AIR have no flights to Zürich at all.
KLAX is a major hub and as I am not interested in Simflyers V2 I will wait until FLYTAMPA will do their version.

I agree to Jetstream as this poll does no longer represent a realistic view of the actual circumstances even all 7 million swiss residents would give a vote here.

I am sure FlyLogic will create a a LSZH scenery but let teh flytampa guys use their resources for a good LAX or anthing else.

Bodo: If you can find 200 people to vote for KLAX, by all means go for it.

Or can you not find any, for some reason? Obviously the Swiss did.
