I am delighted to introduce Scandinavian Mountains Airport, the world's newest international airport! Kicking straight on from the groundbreaking Gothenburg Landvetter, acclaimed developer Marcus Nyberg brings us the latest in his Swedish series. Working in close consultation with (and appreciated support of) the airport's real-world owners, this project started work prior to the grand opening of the airfield on December 22nd last year. Combined with Marcus' ground-breaking snow technology, ESKS also brings to the simulator a true first - incredible 3cm drone-sourced aerial imagery. This stunning tech works around the 7cm ground limitation (without tweaking the core sim or cfg files) to bring to life one of the most immersive airports you will experience in Prepar3D. Scandinavian Mountains Airport is a brand-new, purpose-designed Swedish airport, located close to the Norwegian border. The airfield was constructed to primarily service the major ski resorts located nearby. Designed to handle aircraft up to B747 in size, ESKS hosts scheduled A320, RJ100 and ATR72 services to both Swedish and European destinations, including Gothenburg, Heathrow and Copenhagen. Whilst primarily a winter holiday destination, the airfield is expected to handle year-round traffic, including corporate and GA flights alongside RPT services. SMA is a trailblazer in another important aspect; it has the first purpose-built remote virtual control tower (RVT), meaning that ATC staff are based in Sundsvall, rather than the airport itself. The airport is also ideally placed for short-haul flights to many of your favourite Orbx airports, including Stockholm, Gothenburg, Kiruna, Visby and Dala. As to be expected from Marcus, the airport package includes all the latest technology; 4k mixed-material and PBR texturing, a sublime dynamic ground poly, advanced rendering techniques, internal modelling, beautiful hand-drawn night lighting, custom static aircraft and GSE. Of course, the icing on the cake is the stunning snow technology that builds upon what you have seen at Kiruna and Gothenburg - this truly is the best winter experience you will have in a simulator! An airport built to exacting standards, ESKS combines the latest P3Dv4 tech alongside best-practice optimization to ensure the perfect balance between stunning visuals and excellent performance.

We are extremely excited to unveil something quite special today - Gothenburg Landvetter Airport - the latest work from our own Swedish expert, Marcus Nyberg! This is a project we have carefully kept under wraps for the past couple of months. Marcus has decided to take a break from his Spanish series, returning to Sweden following on from his award-winning Kiruna and Stockholm Arlanda airports. Due to be released just in time for the northern winter, Gothenburg includes ground-breaking snow technology, creating an immersive and realistic wintry experience beyond anything else in the current Orbx library. Combined with expertly colour-matched ground texturing, the airport is a true multi-seasonal location, with a large visual difference between the summer and winter extremes (as can be seen in the above slider). Serving as Sweden's second-busiest airport, Göteborg Landvetter Airport serves 7 million passengers annually to local, European and long-haul destinations. Located about 20km from the city centre, ESGG hosts over 40 airline operators, from regional turboprops and jets (Braathens Regional, Widerøe), low-cost carriers (Norwegian, WizzAir, Ryanair), legacy airlines (SAS, Lufthansa, BA, KLM), through to charter and long-haul carriers such as TUI and Qatar. As well as airliners, the airport is home to several corporate, cargo and government operators, not to mention regular visits from the Volvo-chartered An-12! Whether you are more interested in widebody 787/A330 flights, intra-European runs in your 737NGXu or A320, short-haul runs in the CRJ, Q400, BAe146, B717 or your favourite corporate jet, Gothenburg caters to all types of flyers. As to be expected from Marcus, the scenery includes all the latest bells and whistles - animated SODE jetways, interior modelling, up-to-4K mixed-material and PBR textures, advanced rendering techniques, stunning night lighting, custom vehicle animations, GSX compatibility, animated peopleflow and beautiful hand-placed autogen. Furthermore, for the first time in an Orbx airport, we offer full compatibility with the new SODE VDGS pack (not required and sold separately), to ensure the last part of your flight is the most realistic. Of course the attention goes further than that; expect to see painstakingly created custom detailing, unique static aircraft and GSE designed specifically for this airport and much much more. An airport scenery built to the highest standards, ESGG combines the latest P3Dv4 tech alongside best-practice optimization to ensure the perfect balance between stunningly high-fidelity visuals and excellent performance, perfect for all your Scandinavian flying adventures!
