Jo Erlend is back with a new work-in-progress airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator. After the release of the phenomenal Brussels Airport, the talented developer is now spending some quality time in the Nordics, more specifically in Oslo, the capital of Norway.
Oslo-Gardermoen (ENGM) is now in development and in line to be published by Aerosoft when the time comes for the release. To celebrate the announcement, Aerosoft shared the first preview images of this new scenery for the busy Scandinavian airport, yet again showcasing Jo Erlend’s remarkable attention to detail and high-quality work.
It’s still early to learn more details about this rendition of Oslo’s airport for MSFS, but this initial selection of images already gives us a good idea of what to expect. The developer’s work in previous products seems to carry one here too, with fancy features such as VDGS and extremely realistic interior modeling.
Realism is really the main identifier of Jo Erlend’s work. Brussels was the epitome of this progress and stands today, without a doubt, as one of the very best airports currently available in Microsoft Flight Simulator. Given this recent history, it’s safe to assume that Oslo will also be lucky to have a supremely detailed airport in MSFS, with plenty of bells and whistles on top of an authentic visual representation of the place.
Oslo Airport is the largest and busiest airport in Norway and the second in the Nordic countries, just after Copenhagen. It handled nearly 30 million passengers per year before the pandemic, serving domestic and international flights to Europe, Asia, and the Americas. Naturally, it’s a major operating hub for SAS.
Oslo-Gardermoen airport is still an early work for MSFS, so there’s no current estimate for a release. Given the long development time of Brussels Airport, we’d point to a launch sometime next year…
As usual, we’ll keep an eye on this project and bring you any further development updates as they become available. Stay tuned!
