Aalesund is great - With one future request


Recommended Posts

Congratulations and great applause for the making of Ålesund area and Vigra airport (ENAL).

In Prepar3D V5 everything looks very nice and real-life. If there was only one thing that could make it even more realistic, it would be to create the slope of the real runway in the scenery. The runway is relatively steep and deviates from the ICAO standard.

Here is some more info and material regarding this:

ENAL AD 2.23  ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
1  DIFFERENCES FROM ICAO ANNEX 14 SARPS
1.1 Longitudinal slope of 1,4% on portions of RWY,
REF AD 2 ENAL 2 - 1 and para 3.1.13.

And here's a video showing the nice approach and landing at ENAL.

Hei

 

I'm very aware of this, and really wanted to include the slope! But as Lockheed Martin's support for custom sloped runways is still yet very limited, it might not be possible at this time..

 

Glad you like the airport

Finn,

 

It's a truly STUNNING piece of work!    Huge congratulations!

 

Now if you or some of your genius colleagues could do an Orbx version of Roveniemi (EFRO), that would be amazing and I'd buy it on day one !!!   Considering that every Winter, we have the VATSIM Finland Santa Claus flights where hundreds of us fly up above the Arctic Circle, this would be a big seller in my humble opinion!

 

But thank you for ENAL - truly wonderful work!

 

Regards,

 

Lee

Hi Lee

 

Thanks for the compliments :)

 

We're always looking for new airport projects, however the most important and often hardest part is getting good reference photos.

Hello Finn,

 

Ok, looks like I have a task on my hands ....

 

I'll see what I can do.

 

Regards,

 

Lee
