ST Simulations Shares Previews of Maastricht-Aachen Airport in MSFS

The developer ST Simulations has recently taken to their website to showcase the upcoming scenery of Maastricht-Aachen Airport in the Netherlands. The team also spoke about the current development stage of the scenery.

About Maastricht-Aachen Airport

Maastricht-Aachen Airport (EHBK) is an international airport located in Limburg, Netherlands, approximately 30 kilometres away from Maastricht in Germany. Its strategic position on the borders between the Netherlands and Germany makes it one of the few airports in Europe serving more than one country at the same time. Another example of this could be Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg Airport, located between Switzerland, France and Germany.

The first plans for the airport in this area date back to 1919, with various locations being considered. Overall, the initial construction of the airport was slow, as in 1939, the Second World War struck Europe and the plans were put on hold. The first civilian aircraft landed here in September of 1945.

Throughout the 1950s and 1960s, the airport was significantly expanded with various routes, as the airport was operated by many airlines, such as KLM, Euravia, Tradair and Transair.

Nowadays, the airport is able to handle large aircraft like the 747, as the airport is also being used for cargo operations. Speaking of civilian operations, passengers can get to Antalya, Tuzla, Alicante, Barcelona, Heraklion and even Hurghada from this airport.

ST Simulations says that the exterior and 3D interior modelling of this scenery is now complete, and the texturing phase will begin soon.

In the meantime, the developer also shared a feature list, which is still a subject to change, as the scenery is still in its development phase.

Maastricht-Aachen Airport scenery will offer a 3D interior of the terminal, custom hangars, many buildings in the surrounding area, accurate runway and apron position, as well as custom objects fulfilling the environment. Lastly, all the models will be covered in highly detailed PBR textures.
