2.The Scenery

This scenery is based on the work of "Wachter" (1.2) at X-Plane.org

I have expanded and supplemented the scenery, so that online-flying (eg: at VATSIM) and offline flying is possible with the X-Plane's ATC. The ground textures and forests facilitate the VFR approach. The Ramps are defined in accordance with the Ground chart of VACC-Austria (link: see Readme.txt), although no real fixed positions are used, but the aircraft will be instructed by Marshal.

For version 1.4, our Member "merlin" added the ÖAMTC-Base LOMU that lies between the runway and the highway.

The version 2.0 was adapted to XP11 and extended by the XP Ground Services.

In version 3.5 we integratet SAM-Season to make flying at wintertime nicer.


can be found at http://www.vacc-austria.org/?page=content/airportinfo&icao=LOWK. Using this information, the parking positions and taxiways were built in the scene, so that it shall be no problems in online flying.
