Aerosoft Releases Antarctica for MSFS
Written by JT on September 24, 2021
Aerosoft has today released a new scenery, something that we have not seen yet in the Microsoft Flight Simulator community – a scenery covering an area in Antarctica. While one may wonder what is so interesting about flying around Antarctica, others will be excited to make use of their helicopter flying skills and Twin Otter operations when connecting nearby research stations or simply exploring the continent.
The scenery offers a plethora of features improving the immersion of VFR flying around the area in the simulator like custom animated animals accurate to the area, animated boats, animated people, and animated chain vehicles.
Further, for the animals, custom sounds were created for the best audio experience and, you guessed it, immersion. There are also animated icebergs in a larger area around the base which can sometimes block the aircraft on an approach while passing by.
For ideal VFR flying, there are offsite locations and landing strips with custom models present around the area for the user to do some additional exploring and train challenging approaches. This is really a must-have for a VFR flight simmer.
In case of the scenery coverage, it mainly covers the area of British Rothera. As the product has “Vol.1” in the title, we can expect more sceneries from Antarctica to come in the future. A coverage map of the scenery can be found above, in the gallery.
If you want to purchase the scenery, you can do so through the Aerosoft’s website for a decent price of €12.50 with taxes excluded.
