Simulación Extrema Releases Esquel Airport for MSFS

Simulación Extrema has recently released their rendition of Esquel Airport (SAVE) for Microsoft Flight Simulator, serving the city of Esquel in Argentine Patagonia with a yearly average of 40,000 passengers.

Dating back to the early 20s, when the Argentine military recognized the strategic importance of establishing airfields in remote areas of the country, leading to the construction of a landing strip in Esquel in 1928.

With the increased air travel demand in the 1950s, the landing strip was finally expanded, along with the construction of a terminal building and its subsequent inauguration as a civilian airport.

Many upgrades followed throughout the next decades, culminating in its international status in 2001, opening up opportunities for tourism and business. It quickly became the gateway to Argentinian Patagonia.

To this day, it’s still an important economic driver for the city and its region, taking people to stunning national parks like the Los Alerces National Park.

It’s served by Aerolíneas Argentinas with a flight to Buenos Aires - Aeroparque.

The scenery features an accurate rendition of the airport after the construction work is finished, with high-quality PBR texturing, custom jetways, custom ground textures, and a fully modeled terminal interior. 

It’s available on SimMarket for roughly $12.86, requiring at least 614 MB of free hard disk space to install.
