Drzewiecki Design Releases Gdańsk Lech Wałęsa Airport for MSFS

Drzewiecki Design has recently released their rendition of Gdańsk Lech Wałęsa Airport (EPGD) for Microsoft Flight Simulator, serving the Tricity metropolitan area in the Pomeranian Voivodeship in Poland. It’s the third busiest airport in the country, with a yearly average of 5 million passengers.

The airport was built in 1973 to replace the old Gdansk airport, deemed too small and expanding was impossible because of the many neighborhoods surrounding it. 

It has two terminals, but only one is fully functional (T2). Terminal 1 was built in 1993, currently utilized for departures to non-Schengen countries like Great Britain and Ireland and holiday destinations such as Egypt, Morocco, etc. Terminal 2, the newest one, was built in 2012 and handles all the arrivals, with an overall area of 54,000 square meters, 25 check-in desks, and five jet bridges. It’s able to take up to 6 million passengers a year.

There are plans to expand Terminal 2 in the near future (work is underway) and add CAT3b ILS, allowing pilots to operate even when the visibility is poor and perform an autoland if need be. 

It’s a base for WizzAir and Ryanair, flying people all over Europe. The visitors’ list includes Eurowings, Finnair, KLM, Norwegian Air Shuttle, Scandinavian Airlines, and Swiss International Air Lines.

The scenery features a high-quality rendition of the airport, featuring an updated layout, custom ground textures, performance-friendly optimization, fully modeled terminal buildings with their respective interior, 3D passengers, custom night lighting, animated trains, and more.

It’s available on SimMarket for roughly $19.71, requiring at least 1.44 GB of free hard disk space to install.
