Baghdad International Airport (IATA: BGW, ICAO: ORBI) [Previously Saddam International Airport (IATA: SDA, ICAO: ORBS)] (Arabic: مطار بغداد الدولي ) is Iraq's largest airport, located in a suburb about 16 km (9.9 mi) west of downtown Baghdad in the Baghdad Governorate. It is the home base for Iraq's national airline, Iraqi Airways.
Baghdad International Airport was constructed with the assistance of French firms between 1979 and 1982. It was designed to accommodate both civil and military operations, and can handle up to 7.5 million passengers per year in aircraft.
It is the hub for Iraq 's international airline, Iraqi Airways, and it was once served by several other international airlines.
Most of Baghdad 's civil operations stopped in 1991, when the United Nations imposed restrictions on Iraq after the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait during the Persian Gulf War.
Due to the no-fly zone imposed on Iraq by the United States and the United Kingdom , Iraqi Airways was only able to continue domestic flights for limited periods.
Internationally, Baghdad was only able to receive occasional charter flights carrying medicine, aid workers, and government officials. 2003- Current status June 2003.

Visibility of Objects
To optimise the framerate we had to reduce the visibility of some objects at the airport of ORBI as there are simply too many of them. This should not affect you while you are in the cockpit-view. Sometimes - depending upon the angle - as you come closer, a building or airplane appears very suddenly. This is normal and is done so to increase
PRODUCT DISCLOSURE and DISCLAIMER
Similar to any Flight Simulator (FS) Addons, this product may have issues that are either default (Microsoft-related) or developer-related. Issues that are MS-related, whether documented or undocumented are many, but we can only speak for our product.

These are recommended for lower to medium-end systems, however the scenery is meant for sliders maxed at 100% peak for those computers who can afford the high level scenery design.

Furthermore, we will not be held responsible if files are altered within software for any reason associated with End-User taste or choice.
