Mega Airport Berlin-Brandenburg is your opportunity to land at this airport even though it will not open before 2016. Expected Box-Release: May 28, 2014
Note: The Prepar3D version of the Mega Airport Berlin-Brandenburg is currently not included in this package. It will be soon delivered for free to all buyers of this package as soon as it is available.
From the very beginning Berlin-Brandenburg Airport was not a very lucky project. Construction work began in September 2006 and inauguration was scheduled for October 2011. By now construction progress is more than three years behind initial schedule and costs have been rocketing. The airport has suffered from continued delays, thus it is far from completion and as of now an opening date is not in sight.
Mega Airport Berlin-Brandenburg covers the existing Airport Berlin Schönefeld as well as the adjacent new international airport. A simple tool makes it easy to switch to the current status or one where the new airport is open. It was designed using the latest technology and has an impressive feature list. See for yourself!

Please be aware of the following limitations concerning Prepar3D (not included yet):
Prepar3D does not support AESLite, meaning you won't see any ground traffic at and around the airport as you see it in FSX.
Ground night lightning in Prepar3D 2.2 is slightly different to the FSX version since it uses different lightning techniques compared to Prepar3D 1.4 and FSX. We did our best to match color tones to the FSX version.
Prepar3D 2.2: Transparent windows around the BER terminal are not always shown in the right order. Same applies here: We did our best to solve this issue and make sure it's barely visible (if at all).
Prapar3D 2.2 won't load some foglight effects around apron lightpoles when you save a flight at BER and load same flight. However all effects appear as they should when you fly in from another airport or load the airport through the airport menu, which is usually done. Bug has been reported to the Prepar3D 2.2 developer team.
