Aerosoft: Bergen X released

Aerosoft released Jo Erlends Sund´s wonderful scenery of the international airport of Bergen Norway. Bergen X features a highly recreation of Flesland Airport. The addon is based on high resolution photos taken at the airport to create an absolute realistic and accurate description of the aerodrome and it atmosphere. Developer Jo Erlend Sund did a great job on that.

The scenery includes models of all the airportbuildings and facilities, taking advantage of texture baking to create realistic shadows on the models and ground. Also included is the terminal interior, alive with passengers sitting and walking around to create a more living ambience.

Time to plan a trip to Bergen. The scenery is compatible with FSX and Prepar3D and is available at the Aerosoft shop here. Happy landings!

It is essential, for both efficiency and safety, that pilots, ATC, Air Traffic Flow Managers, Flight Management System and Aviation Charts all have the same data set. This can only be achieved by following the AIRAC.
