Aerosoft releases Offshore Landmarks: North Sea for MSFS with hundreds of new heliports

Aerosoft has released today its expansive new scenery and airport add-on for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Offshore Landmarks: North Sea adds hundreds of new heliports and airports amongst countless landmarks and POIs in the North Sea, creating the perfect playground for helicopter pilots to lose many hours in MSFS.

This project was announced earlier this year with the goal of re-creating the massive industrial activity that operates in Europe’s North Sea. The main idea behind this new scenery package from Aerosoft is to turn the dull North Sea scenery in MSFS into something that more closely resembles the real-world version: a bustling area filled with activity, from the maritime traffic that connects some of the world’s busiest ports, to the vast amount of fishing boats, not forgetting the thousands of windmills and gas/oil drilling rigs and supporting structures.

This product is aimed at the low flyers. If you’re flying at FL410 you probably shouldn’t bother, because this scenery needs to be seen from low altitudes. Perhaps by GA pilots crossing the sea between Britain and the Nordics, or by helicopter pilots, who will be able to land on the more than 380 new helipads that can be found in drilling platforms and many other floating structures.

Aviation plays a vital role in this industrial area. Helicopter traffic is ubiquitous, transporting cargo and workers between the many operators in the zone. That makes today’s launch very pertinent, as it happens shortly after the official introduction of helicopters in MSFS with the launch of the 40th Anniversary Edition.

Aerosoft says that all the objects you’ll find are placed in logical positions, reflecting their status as of January 20, 2022.

Offshore Landmarks: North Sea is one of the most expansive third-party scenery releases yet for MSFS and is well worth a look not only by helicopter pilots but also by those who usually fly around the area and would like the scenery to be much more accurate.

Offshore Landmarks: North Sea is now available through the Aerosoft store.
