    Airport2Sim Amsterdam
    These enormous mega hubs can be incredibly intimidating to fly to and from with no prior knowledge. Where do I park? Which airlines use which gate? Will your aircraft even fit in the gate? Where do I taxi? Which runway, departure, or arrival procedure out of the many available should I use?
    This is the first release from our new product line - Airport2SIm - which teaches you everything you need to know about operations at complex and challenging airports. Over six beautifully produced videos tutorials, our real world pilot James McDonald walks you through everything you need to know about this vast airport.
    You're using a superbly accurate scenery with an superbly accurate aircraft, so surely the last part of the chain is to replicate the ACTUAL procedures for your flight to and from Amsterdam without guesswork.
    We have also include in the download package a comprehensive information sheet about every airliner gate at the entire airport, detailing which aircraft from the many in use in the simulator community will fit into each gate, along with parking information and any NOTAMS that you may need to know about.
    FInally, we have bundled an extensively reworked GSX configuration file with the airport. This adds SODE gates for super-accurate docking every time, correct stop points on the parking position, reworked ground vehicle positioning to prevent conflicts with the scenery and reworked and re-labelled push-backs to push you back successfully every time.
    And you'll be delighted to hear that we've retired the marshaller from almost every gate and replaced him with hand placed GSX SAFEDOCKS at every position that not only sense your aircraft type but give you an accurate read out of the distance left to the final parking position. We wish him well as he spends more time relaxing at home with his marshalling wands!
    Our award winning training programs have enabled you to master complex aircraft such as the Majestic Bombardier Q400and the PMDG Boeing 777. Now we aim to help you master real world operations at complex airports like this!
    Purchase is available here and you can find more information here. As they say in Holland, Veel succes and Veel geluk!
