Our good friends at Airline2Sim has had a pretty quiet few years since the release of their PMDG 777 Cadet Training Program (review). They did announce a new product line called Airport2Sim, which is designed to teach you everything you’d need to know about moving around some of the biggest airports in the world.

In the update, posted on Facebook, the team gave a glimpse of what we could expect from the new training program. Originally intended to just be 2/3 parts, the first Airport2Sim package will feature 6 videos explaining the ground handling, departure and arrival procedures at Amsterdam (EHAM) airport. The huge European airport is known for its long taxis and sprawling traffic – so that should be an exciting watch. Further to that, the package will include GSX configuration files which will add custom and accurate safedocks locations and SODE gates. Furthermore, a document will be included giving you the details about which airline operates at which gates, etc. This information all comes from their resident Amsterdam Airbus pilot, James – who brings the details to life.

A series of previews from the upcoming Airport2Sim

Futhermore, a quick message regarding the future was mentioned. A newly redesigned website and more user-friendly shopping experience will also be available very soon. After the release of Airport2Sim, the team will be working on a new training program for the A32X Cadet Program. This will then be followed up by the PMDG 777 First Officer (formally the Cadet Plus program), which expands on everything from the original series.

No dates were confirmed, other than the aim is to wrap up all the above projects by the end of the year.
