Stairport Sceneries Release Airport Kassel for X-Plane

September 9, 2021

Opened in 2013 the small airport, located in central Germany, has served the city of Kessel well, with Sundair offering flights to the Balearics and Greek islands. Although being a reasonably small airport, Stairport Sceneries have not gone short in features, whether that’s custom airport vehicles or HD hand-placed vegetation, the airport has been brought to life with perfection. 

The airport offers pilots a challenge when landing as the runway has been placed with an incline from one end. With the Help of Maps2Xplane Stairport were able to model this incline with Custom Mesh for the whole airport and bring that challenge into the simulator. With full SAM compatibility, we can expect Custom Marshallers on each stand as well as Seasonal Textures, adding snow formations in the winter and stunning green grass in the summer. 

Stairport Sceneries have also included a Feature list:

  • Detailed replica of the airport of Kassel-Calden
  • Custom coloured orthophoto for the airport
