Imagine this truly peculiar scene: a fast jet taxies to the runway and needs to stop at a railway crossing as the red light is flashing and wait until the slowest express train in the world, the famous Glacier Express, has cleared the crossing!

In essence, this is what you get with this addon!

Note: The primary difference between our freeware scenery of Ulrichen (available for PC only on flightsim.to) and this payware version of the airport, is the animated Glacier Express with flashing red lights where the taxiway crosses the railway!

Besides that, this airport scenery also offers these highligts:

  • The highest jet fighter air base in Europe.
  • Moving Glacier Express, the slowest express train of the world. The train moves every 5 minutes over a distance of almost 4.5km, resulting in a speed of 54 km/h which matches the top speed speed of the real HGe 4/4 I.
  • The Furka-Oberalp (FO) railway is modeled fully in the area of the airport, including a precise replica of the catenary with wooden masts.
  • Two taxiways are crossing first the FO railway and then the young Rhone river (called Rotten up there) over wooden bridges to connect two remote aircraft shelters. So, from these parking places you have to taxi over a wild mountain river and cross the railway to reach the runway!
  • Besides the moving Glacier Express, a fuel train with an authentic FO HGe 4/4 I locomotive and a couple of jet fuel tank cars (which existed on the Swiss narrow gauge networks exactly for the purpose to supply remote Alpine air bases with fuel) is waiting on a siding next to the airport.
  • The Glacier Express once was constituted by the three railway companies Rhaetian Railways (RhB), Furka Oberalp Railway (FO) and Brig-Visp-Zermatt-Bahn (BVZ) who have all provided part of the rolling stock.
    The appearance of the Glacier Express is very colorful with another replication of an He 4/4 I locomotive and five passenger coaches.
  • The coaches are all either a different model or have a different livery. The five coaches are: FO B4263, RhB AB1517, BVZ B2263, RhB A1255 and FO B4264.
  • The U-68 aircraft shelters and the hangar recreate the scenery exactly as it looked at the early 1970ies.
  • An aerial image from 1967 was used to recreate correctly the layout and every detail of the airport.
  • Spectacular location to take off with Swiss military airplanes, be it the F/A 18, the PC-6, the Ju-52 or even the freeware Hawker Hunter from Dave Garwood (PC only).
  • Ulrichen had a spectacular canyon-approach, for which the pilot had to literally throw down his aircraft the steep flanks of the Minstiger-Valley.
  • If you have installed the Hawker Hunter package from Dave Garwood (from flightsim.to, PC only), a squadron of static aircraft will be shown.

Some information about the real airfield:

  • Build during WWII as a Reduit air base for the Swiss Air Force in 1942.
  • Extension of the runway 1960.
  • Jet airbase for a squadron Hawker Hunter aircraft.
  • Closed in 1999.
  • Even after 1999, the airport was sometimes used by the by the Italian helicopter manufacturer AgustaWestland as high altitude test airport.

ANTS AIRPLANES - TIGER MOTH MSFS
John
Very fun to fly. Very good options. Just well done.
SCENERYTR - LTAC ANKARA ESENBOĞA AIRPORT -MSFS
Jaro
Airport textures and gates are good. I see a distinct lack in any interior modeling and just feels like the airport is a little bare with no vehicles moving or more detailed ground objects besides textures
SIERRASIM SIMULATION - SKBG PALONEGRO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT V1.1 MSFS
Jaro
Good airport and ground textures. Happy with it except the interior modeling is nonexistent. If you find it on sale for under 10 euros its worth it for the beautiful area and airport itself
FLYSIMWARE LLC - CESSNA 414AW CHANCELLOR MSFS
Edward
I will have to give this 2 stars for the level of detail it does bring to MSFS. The other 3 stars I deducted for two primary reasons. First, the plane is well done; however, for $13 U.S. less, you can purchase the C310R which is by far more comprehensive and accurate than what Flysimware offers in the C414AW. Second, I have witnessed support members from Flysimware embarrass and disrespect members of their Discord who ask questions. I was one such person who took the brunt of a verbal assault for asking a question. Poor customer service is no way to establish a long-term positive relationship with the same people you want to purchase your software. In summary, if you are looking for a challenge in a twin-engine Cessna that offers a level of accuracy and system depth near unrivaled along with world-class customer support, save yourself money and get the C310. You can use that saved money to purchase other products.

Beautifully Done… cant wait to see more Nigerian airports please
SALVUZ - LIRP PISA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
Marco
outstanding product, remarkable detail (i.e. the moving shuttle from train station to airport, the clock at the entrance is functional !); the place becomes wonderful with AIG software, Pisa city and industrial area mod, and vehicles traffic addon my suggestion towards immersion improvement would be to add some GA and military static aircrafts, because the emptiness of southern/north eastern parking areas ... and, why not, a few static tourists in front of the arrivals/depart-
ures entrance, just checking the clock ;) thanks

Thank you! scenery wasn't available for this airport and finally we have something to fly near the alps.

Great enhancement. Too many trucks and it is also ridiculous to see them on moving around on narrow, winding and remote roads. Please update, thanks.
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - WARSAW CITY X FSX P3D
David
This developer makes some of the largest sceneries I’ve seen. Warsaw is a massive area full of amazing sites, details and discoveries. It’s one of the best for helicopters, and crop dusters. Metropolitan area is full of unique tall buildings and historical sites. Several villages and small air strips to explore as well as vast farming areas. Loads of detail around every corner. Next to Seattle X this is a favorite scenery to fly. Based on use with FSX Steam Win 10 i7 16GB ram Intel UHD630 integrated GPU. Running near max settings with no loss of frame rates. Amazing!
