Aerosoft releases Antwerp Airport for MSFS
Aerosoft has released today a new airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Antwerp International Airport, located in the Flemish Region of Belgium, is a small international airport that serves the city of Antwerp, serving a few scheduled and charter flights, as well as business and general aviation.
Antwerp International Airport (EBAW) has a history dating back to the early 1920s. Sabena began passenger services in 1924 using an old railway carriage until a proper airport terminal was constructed in 1930. During World War II, the airport was used by the Luftwaffe and later saw brief use by Allied air forces. Nowadays, EBAW has a single small passenger terminal with basic amenities such as service desks, a small coffee shop, and a restaurant with a terrace. The apron has ten stands for smaller planes and a runway length of only slightly over 1,500 m (4,900 ft), which limits the size of planes that can operate there.
For this new airport, Aerosoft promises to have accurately recreated the scenery in MSFS, featuring an up-to-date taxiway and runway layout with realistic elevation profiles. Custom lighting can also be found throughout, along with taxiway markers, custom signs, and interiors for the tower and terminal.
In addition to the accurate depiction of the airport’s layout and facilities, Aerosoft has also included some additional features to enhance the gaming experience. Animated passengers have been added, creating a more immersive and lively experience. PBR texturing is used for ground polygons, buildings, objects, and so on.
Antwerp International Airport may not be the busiest airport you’ll find in Central Europe, but it’s another interesting option for those short airliner hops in this region. It’s available now directly through Aerosoft, priced at just around €13.
