Microsoft Flight Simulator World Update XV: Nordics & Greenland Out Now

World Update XV covers Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, and also includes the Faroe Islands and Greenland (both self-governing countries within the Kingdom of Denmark). Developed in conjunction with Microsoft partners Bing Maps, Vexcel, Maxar, Gaya Simulations, Orbx, and Kjetil Garpestad, this update promises to thrill the Microsoft Flight Simulator audience with its range of enhancements:

  • 90 hand-made points of interest.
  • 10 TIN (triangulated irregular network) cities.
  • 5 hand-crafted airports.
  • Broad-based, high-resolution geographic updates using significantly enhanced DEMs (digital elevation models) in Iceland, Norway, and Sweden.
  • Fresh aerial imagery and satellite data across the entire region.

Some of the Points of Interest (POIs) include Denmark’s Farø Bridges, Gråsten Palace, and Ribe Cathedral; Finland’s Bengtskär Lighthouse, Kökar church, and Tähtiniemi Bridge; Greenland’s Arctic Station, EastGRIP, and Summit Station; Iceland’s Knarrarós Lighthouse, Laugardalsvöllur Stadium, and Ólafsvíkurkirkja Church; Norway’s Andenes Lighthouse, Gjemnessund Bridge, and Svalbard Global Seed Vault; and Sweden’s Älvsborg Bridge, Arctic Space Centre, and Aurora Sky Station.

The TIN cities in World Update XV include five in Denmark: Aarhus, Copenhagen, Frederikssund, Odense, and Roskilde; four in Sweden: Gothenburg, Linkoping, Malmö, and Visby; and Norway’s Oslo. In addition, Gaya simulations created a splendid array of airports: Iceland’s Akureyri Airport (BIAR), Norway’s Mo i Rana Airport (ENRA), Sweden’s Kiruna Airport (ESNQ), and Finland’s Ivalo Airport (EFIV). Kjetil Garpestad created a stunningly realistic rendition of Leknes Airport (ENLK).

World Update XV is available to download for free in the #MicrosoftFlightSimulator Marketplace!
