Introduction

Cologne or Köln is a 2000-year-old city in western Germany that sits on the edge of the Rhine river proudly displaying its high gothic architecture. Situated around 45 kilometres southeast of Dusseldorf and 25 kilometres northwest of Bonn, Cologne is the largest city of Germany’s most populous federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

The airport is very busy, being a two terminal, triple runway international airport and cargo hub. It features daily flights operated by major European airlines such as Lufthansa, KLM, TUI, Ryanair, Norwegian, Eurowings and more.

Initially a release from Aerosoft’s German Airports 2-2012 package for FS2004 and FSX, Cologne/Bonn (EDDK) has been remade for Prepar3D v4 in order to omit VAS issues from the advanced features.

According to Aerosoft, “this new scenery developed by Jo Erlend Sund sets new standards in the level of detail for P3D V4”. A bold statement from a big company that so many of us rely on for decent sceneries. Let’s see what magic Mr Sund has developed for us P3D users.

Aerosoft Release More Cologne Bonn (Köln/Bonn) Previews

EDDK 075 4K.jpg.6ad87b3dc28c96785d5f6fdd14237025

Aerosoft announced the development of Cologne Bonn (Köln/Bonn) EDDK Airport back in October 2017 and they’ve since been releasing eye-candy development previews and updates for us over on the forum thread. Along with the previews, the developer, Jo Erlend, has mentioned that we are to expect some more news regarding the scenery this week.

In the previews, you notice the attention paid to the immense level of detail on the ramp, objects, terminal and ground markings. There even are 3D characters featured inside of the detailed terminal interior.

Going back through the thread, there’s mention from Jo Erlend that the Prepar3D v4 version will be released before Cologne is brought to older platforms such as FSX and Prepar3D v3 as it will need to be reworked due to being beyond the scope of any 32bit platform’s memory capacities. While this scenery is obviously being developed with P3D v4 specifically in mind, X-Plane users shouldn’t worry as  Cologne Airport will be ported over to the platform in the near future as it was mentioned on the thread by Aerosoft’s Product Manager, Jan Depenbusch.
