Airline2Sim have recently taken to Facebook to release a pre-release trailer for their upcoming inaugural Airport2Sim product, Amsterdam Schiphol. The 11 minute video summarizes what customers will be able to expect when the product releases. Users can expect six videos with the package, as well as an improved GSX configuration for 3rd party Schiphol sceneries. The package will also include SODE files and a PDF information sheet.

The six videos will cover real-world operating procedures for Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport, including analysis of the taxiway layout, intersections you may expect for a short takeoff, which arrival and departure patterns are used at the airport based on the time of day, and much much more. The preview video also demonstrates the enhancements that Airline2Sim have made to FlyTampa’s Schiphol with the use of their own custom GSX profile, which ensures that your aircraft never receives conflicting marshaling instructions, or clips its wings on SODE elements such as jetways.

Airport2Sim Schiphol will cost $9.99 USD and will be made available for purchase on the Airline2Sim website, as well as all major flightsim retailers. No firm release date has been set, however we can expect the product to come out sometime within the next few days.
