Airfield Canada, a cross-platform scenery developer, has announced their latest two products, Deer Lake Regional Airport (CYDF) and Fort McMurray International Airport (CYMM) for X-Plane, Prepar3d and Microsoft Flight Simulator. 

Deer Lake Regional Airport (CYDF) is located on the island of Newfoundland, in the very east of Canada. Deer Lake handles flights from Halifax, Toronto and Montreal with Air Canada Express as well as Gander, Goose Bay and St. Johns with PAL Airlines. The airport can handle aircraft as large as the Airbus A321 and the Boeing 737 using the 8,000ft runway.

Fort McMurray International Airport (CYMM) in the province of Alberta, just to the west of central Canada, is the largest airport in northern Alberta. The airport has daily national flights to Edmonton, Calgary and Toronto through airlines such as Air Canada and Westjet. Until 2015, Sunwing used to fly to seasonal destinations in Mexico, giving the airport international status. The airport sees between half a million and 1.5 million passengers each year. 

Airfield Canada has mentioned that both airports will be developed alongside each other but due to the smaller size, Deer Lake Regional will be the first to be released. The developer gave some insight as to what to expect in terms of the sceneries including custom 3D buildings for all airport facilities as well as custom lighting, animated traffic and full SAM integration including seasons and airport animations.

The post also included renders of the terminal building at Deer Field. Airfield Canada promises to reveal lots more in the coming months and we will endeavour to keep you updated with the development.
