Following the release of Wasserkuppe for Microsoft Flight Simulator, Aerosoft has extended the family of their Microsoft Flight Simulator sceneries by Zagreb Airport (LDZA). The release announcement was posted on the Aerosoft Facebook page, in which the developer provided us with a link to the scenery product page.

Zagreb Franj Tudman Airport, also referred to as Zračna Luka Pleso, is an international airport located 10 kilometres away from Croatia’s capital city Zagreb. The airport has been built in 1909 and civil aviation started to occur here in 1928. It has to offer various destinations such as Tivat, Podgorica, Skopje or Amsterdam and the airport is mainly operated by Aeroflot, Croatia Airlines, Lufthansa, LOT or Czech Airlines.

The scenery itself offers a 3D detailed model of the airport with PBR textures, providing you with the best possible visual experience, a custom orthophoto around the airport, an animated radar antenna, custom runway signage unique for this airport, custom catering or even animated windsocks in the airport area.

The scenery can be bought through Aerosoft store for €15.08.

My aviation enthusiasm started back in March 2016 and since then I fly almost every day when I have time. I always like to discover new places or new things. The vehicles or any kind of technical things always fascinated me. As I was younger, I was also a journalist in a school magazine, so when I got an opportunity to write articles about my favorite hobby, I immediately jumped in.
