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.
