In 1999 sim-wings was initiated by Thorsten Loth, Germany and the first scenery "Ibiza for FS2000" was released. Sim-wings is not a company itself, it is the name and sign for high quality flight simulator add ons. Thorsten Loth is owning the "sim-wings" copyright, domain etc. In the year 2000 Manfred Spatz, Spain started making flight simulator add ons under the name of "sim-wings (Manfred Spatz)" matching the same high quality standards. Both developers act and sell their add ons totally independent.
