Googly scenery for Medellin/Enrique Olaya Herrera (ICAO: SKMD, IATA: EOH). This
centrally located airport, named after the 1930 president of Colombia, was once
the only airport for the city of Medellin but most international flights are now
concentrated on the new international airport inconveniently situated 24 miles
away. Nevertheless the airport is very busy with domestic, charter and private
traffic and is regularly served by scheduled services of Aerolínea de Antioquia,
AIRES, Easyfly and SATENA. There are many charter operators based or serving
serving this airport, including Aexpa, Heliandes, Sarpa, Helicol and TAC; these
are mostly smaller aircraft or helicopter operations.
Remarkably for such an important airport, Microsoft have only provided a runway
at this airport in Flight Simulator 2004 and this scenery seeks to redress the
situation so that you and your "AI" traffic can use the airport realistically.
The scenery does not purport to be ultra-accurate. Based on high quality
satellite imagery from Google Earth, the layout is proportionally correct but the
added airport features, such as buildings, are built from default Microsoft objects
and add-on libraries so will not look exactly like the real thing.
You are not obliged to download and install any additional scenery libraries,
but to enjoy this scenery in its entirety, you may wish to. It will work fine,
with or without.
