Calgary International Airport, nestled in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, is a bustling transportation hub and one of the busiest airports in the country. Located just 17 kilometers northeast of downtown Calgary, this airport serves as a vital gateway for both domestic and international travel. As the largest airport in the province of Alberta and the fourth-busiest in Canada, it welcomes countless passengers each year - FSimStudios newest airport is now available on Flightsim.to.
FSimStudios has poured their expertise and dedication into creating a premium-quality rendition of Calgary International Airport for MSFS. Every aspect of the airport has been reproduced, boasting sharp, high-resolution textures that bring the airport to life. Step into the terminal buildings and marvel at the fully detailed interiors in piers A, B, C, D, and E. Realistic night lighting illuminates the runways and buildings. And that's not all — Calgary Tower, a prominent landmark, is included in the add-on, with more downtown buildings, such as The Bow and the new Telus Tower, set to be added in the near future. As you approach the runways, keep an eye out for Crossiron Mills and New Horizons Mall, faithfully modeled.
One of the standout features of FSimStudios' CYYC - Calgary International Airport is the inclusion of the fully detailed Twin Otter manufacturing plant. The add-on also brings some special features to the table. With a GSX Profile that includes animated deicing pads (GSX Required), you can replicate the real-world deicing process during winter operations. Additionally, the Air Canada Maintenance Hangars are dynamically animated, with doors opening and closing based on the time of day and weather conditions. Keep an eye out for the Stampede Fireworks Show during July, from 11 PM to midnight, as you approach RWY35 L/R—a captivating sight that adds an extra touch of realism to your flights.
The upcoming V1.1 update will introduce functional VDGS (Visual Docking Guidance System), adding another layer of authenticity to your airport operations. As a token of appreciation, FSimStudios has included a special gift—a Kenn Borek DC3 livery — for all those who acquire this remarkable add-on.
