Product information "SAM GroundService XP"

After WorldJetways, AirportVehicles and FollowMe, the next extension for SAM is ready to go. SAM GroundService XP places the apron vehicles in the X-Plane flight simulator.

Let the passengers deboard, connect the GPU or refuel the plane. All processes on the ground around the aircraft are simulated and displayed in 3D. From the chocks, loading or unloading of luggage or cargo, to the arrival of the cleaning staff.

As with the previous extensions, all settings can be tuned via the SAM menu. From here you can also import your flight plan from SimBrief, (as an example) or select a fast-loading option if you want it to happen a little faster.

Limitations
Some 3rd party aircrafts don't allow us to control certain aspects like real-time fueling or ground power support. Whenever this is the case, the corresponding service will be hidden so the native aircraft service can be used. Special cases will be noted in the Aircraft Compatibility list.

    • 3 different regional sets: North America, Europe, Asia

Reviews:

Conclusion by FSNews.eu:
"In summary, the addon for sure is revolutionary in many aspects. It is adding a notable amount of immersion and realism to the simulator. It offers nice ground handling vehicles, animations, and a modern user interface with dark mode.

Stairport Sceneries’ GroundHandling really makes a difference from the previously available ground handling plugins from other development groups. It is also the logic that vehicles don’t come up randomly but in proper order."
