The Innsbruck airport is Western Austria’s primary airport. During the winter season, it is especially busy as tourists make their way to the area to enjoy the region’s highly regarded skiing resorts. The airport is situated in a rather steep valley, which makes both flying in and out of Innsbruck difficult and different from what many pilots have experienced. There are flight procedures in place that must be ok’d by the Federal Office of Civil Aviation before they are allowed. This is largely because fights in and out of Innsbruck can be incredibly dangerous. If the conditions aren’t just right, an airplane could go down.
The Approaching Innsbruck Airport Scenery add-on includes a petty accurate rendering of the Innsbruck airport and high quality aerial images. It features night and seasonal fixtures, navigation aids, and compatibility with AES, UTE and ATP2004.

All in all, this is a very nice add-on. Individuals looking for a challenge will find that this package will definitely provide it. Innsbruck is one of the most difficult airports to navigate in the world. The area’s punishing winter weather and the airport’s deep valley location mean that the potential for error, including a fatal one, is ever present.
