Orbx Scandinavian Mountains Airport (ESKS) Released

As expected regarding yesterday’s final shots from Iain Eems, Orbx has just released their Scandinavian Mountains Airport (ESKS) for Prepar3D V4.

Developped by Marcus Nyberg, who is also the author of Orbx Gothenburg and Stockholm, the airport feature an incredible 3cm/pixel drone sourced imagery, 4K textures, PBR materials, custom dynamic night lighting, custom snow and weather effects, ground clutter, detailed modeling and much more.

You can read the interview with Marcus Nyberg that was conducted by FSElite in December 2019 here.

The Scandinavian Mountains Airport opened its door in December 2019, and is nocated next to the Norwegian border. It was put in service in order to serve the popular winter sports resorts of Sälen, Idre (both in Sweden) and Trysil in Norway. It was built over an old local airfield that was supported by the local land owners. It can handle heavy aircraft but currently only receives single aisle traffic from northern Europe. It uas a 2,800m / 8,500ft runway with a CAT III ILS. It is interesting to notice that the ATC tower is remotely operated from Sundsvall.

The Scandinavian Mountains Airport (ESKS) is available on Orbx Direct for AUD 34.95.
