Great news for all hobby pilots on the home computer: Albrecht Dürer Airport Nuremberg can now be flown to in the popular Microsoft Flight Simulator.

The two designers, Volker Wegner and Lars Pinkenburg, have digitized all of the airport's buildings and facilities. Well over 1.000 photos taken on site formed the basis for this. The 55 square kilometer environment, including characteristic buildings, the newly built P4 multi-storey car park, traffic routes and terrain features was also digitally reproduced so that the approach and departure phases come extremely close to reality, according to the airport. The extension (add-on) for the latest version of the popular Microsoft flight simulator will be available as a download from March 23rd. There is a demo video on YouTube under this one Link.
