Captain7 has been in existence since 2015, having been founded by Volker Wegner. Their mission is described as "As real as it gets," with a focus on bringing airport sceneries into flight simulators with utmost authenticity and a vibrant atmosphere. The emphasis is not on short development times but on achieving precision in detailed implementation, creating animations that look perfectly natural, and crafting highly realistic building and landscape models. Building upon these principles, the aim is to produce something distinctive within the expansive realm of flight simulator add-ons. The substantial feedback from the community and the numerous awards serve as strong motivation and validation of Captain7's approach.
