UK2000 Scenery Releases Santa Maria Airport for MSFS
UK2000 Scenery has recently released their rendition of Santa Maria Airport (SBSM) for Microsoft Flight Simulator, serving the city of Santa Maria in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.
It was opened in 1945 on an urgent basis with the help of the United States Army, featuring a runway that was for many years the longest in the state, only behind Porto Alegre Airport after its expansion from 2280 meters to 3200, making it 500 meters longer than Santa Maria’s main runway.
An air base was inaugurated in 1971, sharing the facilities with the civil part. The agreement continued until 2015 when the full ownership was transferred to the Municipality of Santa Maria.
It’s currently served by Azul Linhas Aéreas, who has a daily flight to Porto Alegre and a single seasonal route to Florianópolis.
The scenery features an accurate rendition of the airport, with detailed buildings, realistic ground markings, PBR materials, custom vegetation, custom night lighting, and custom interiors for the tower and passenger terminal.
It’s available on SimMarket for roughly $12.92 and requires at least 22.43 MB of free hard disk space to install.
