Microsoft Flight Simulator World Update XV: Nordics and Greenland is now officially out. This free update invites pilots to experience the breathtaking landscapes of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, as well as the Faroe Islands and Greenland with their stunning natural beauty and diverse terrain​.

The update, available for download from the in-sim Marketplace, not only provides sweeping improvements but also introduces 90 new points of interest. Alongside these points of interest, simmers will find five new hand-crafted airports to explore.

  • 90 hand-made points of interest.

  • 5 hand-crafted airports.
  • Broad-based, high-resolution geographic updates using significantly enhanced DEMs (digital elevation models) in Iceland, Norway, and Sweden.
  • Fresh aerial imagery and satellite data across the entire region.

World Update XV: Nordics & Greenland also brings simmers ten exciting activities that will inspire and challenge. Developed in collaboration with Microsoft partners like Bing Maps, Vexcel, Maxar, Gaya Simulations, Orbx, and Kjetil Garpestad, it incorporates updated satellite imagery, enhanced digital elevation models, and includes ten TIN (Triangulated Irregular Network) cities, further improving the authenticity and immersion of the flight simulation experience​.

  • Four discovery flights: Bergen (Norway), Gothenburg (Sweden), the Faroe Islands (Denmark), and Reykjavík (Iceland).
  • Three landing challenges: Akureyri Airport (BIAR), a famous challenge in northern Iceland; Ekeby Airport (ESSC), an epic sailplane challenge in Sweden; and a bold challenge at Norway’s Mo i Rana Airport (ENRA).
  • Three bush trips: the Baltic Coast of Denmark and Sweden which traverses some of Europe’s most exquisite coastal landscapes; the adventurous Greenland Exploration; and Spitsbergen, which begins with an exploration of Norway’s Spitsbergen, then crosses open water to visit northern mainland Norway.
