The Spanish islands in the Mediterranean sea are the focus of the new TrueEarth Product for Laminar Research’s sim.

ORBX announce the product, which the company says should be released soon, on the official forums.

There are many popular holiday destinations in this stunning sun kissed archipelago at the center of the Mediterranean sea. The Balearic Islands are known for their lively and electric atmosphere, sun-drenched beaches, and hundreds of quaint coastal towns and resorts.

Whether you want to soar above the party island of Ibiza, take a more relaxing and scenic tour of Mallorca, or visit tourist hotspot Majorca, seeing the Balearic Islands with such lifelike detail is truly breathtaking. Buried deep in the mountains and along the shores across the entire Balearics, numerous coastal towns, cities and hotel complexes await you. Over 150 attractions, major hotels and historical buildings have been faithfully recreated giving you the chance to see these resorts from a truly unique perspective.

Each island has its own unique flair and charm, complete with Spanish styled buildings, points of interest and autogen. Using the latest data, each tree and building is placed correctly on each island for a truly authentic simulation experience. This is a visually stunning part of the world, and is excellent for all types of virtual pilots with detail for VFR pilots and great destinations for those in the jets.
