When Austrian simFlight reader Robert Graf asked for permission to use the simFlight and simMarket logos on his Chevrolet Impala race car, it caused a little bit of interest amongst higher management – plus, of course, the instant comment of ‘We can’t afford to sponsor a racing car!’ from finance.

You’ve probably noticed that the decor, as well as a few other things, have changed around here… Well, thanks to a huge amount of time and effort from Miguel over the last few days (especially just after Midnight this morning when I popped up and pointed out problems which were fixed by the time I got up today!) it’s now done. Hopefully the new site in its new home will load faster and eliminate the problems that some people were having, but what do you, our readership, think?

It was originally opened in 1940 and is located just outside of Ronne near the southwest corner of the island. The airport has a single asphalt surface runway 11/29 which is 6,568 ft long.

Aerosoft have just released their latest Mega Airport for FSX. Titled Zurich 2012 it is a detailed recreation of Switzerland’s largest international airport. The airport is located north of the large metropolitan city of Zurich which is on the north eastern tip of Lake Zurich.

The airport has gone through a number of major changes in the past decade. With the demise of Swissair in 2002 the airport saw a substantial drop in traffic. The airline has since been resurrected by Lufthansa which took it over and renamed it Swiss International Air Lines. Since then the level of traffic has been steadily increasing.

Gatwick airport, EGKK, is located approximately 46 kms south of the city of London in the United Kingdom. Originally opened in the 1920’s it served as an aerodrome up until 1933 when it was approved for commercial flights. They were eventually halted in 1936 after two fatal accidents called into question the airport’s safety. Between 1936 and 1958 it was used as a civilian airfield and as an RAF base during the Second World War.
