Durchschnitt: 4.8 (6 Bewertungen)

1. The example

The Salzburg Airport W. A. Mozart (IATA: SZG, ICAO: LOWS) is located inside the city of Salzburg and is the second largest airport of Austria. The airport was taken into operation on the 16th of August 1926 and was named after the  composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart who was born in Salzburg.

The airport is located about four kilometers west of the center of Salzburg, inside the district named Maxglan, about two kilometers from the German border, next to Ainring and Freilassing. The airports elevation is 430 m a.s.l. on the terrain of the former Untersberger moor and in the vicinity of the enclosed basin of Salzburg. The Untersberg (mountain) is located south of the airport.

2. The scenery

The scenery is based on a conversion done by andreasmax named "LOWS - Salzburg W.A.Mozart V9" , which originally was done by gianni for the MSFS2004.

Because of copyright law the scenery was done completely from scratch.

Thereby the above mentioned scenery was used as a template included actual information from open sources to build the aiport new.


are available at http://www.vacc-austria.org/?page=content/airportinfo&icao=LOWS. Based on that charts the parking postions and  taxiways where build into the scenery. So there should'nt be any problems when flying online.

During August 2012 the runway 16/34 was renamed to 15/33. This fact is also considered in the scenery.

In January 2019, the scenery was changed to the Marshaller and the gate control over SAM.
