Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Here is beautiful Chanukah and Christmas flight to EFRO Rovaniemi Airport the official Santa Claus airport located 6 miles north of Rovaniemi city centre where Arctic Circle crosses the EFRO runway closer to its northern end.

Cruising at FL340

Making few circles around before heading to extremely busy EFRO is common during last two weeks of December and first week of January as all tourists like to head to Santa Village for holidays and New Year Eve partying

Very nice scenery, Aharon. I tried the FISD version of Rovaniemi last year but it was for FS9 and hadn't been optimized for FSX, so performance was not good. This is great. Thank a lot for the links.
