SkyHighSim Releases Belgrade Airport

SkyHighSim Releases Belgrade Airport

Belgrade “Nikola Tesla” Airport is the largest and busiest airport in Serbia, located 12km west of central Belgrade.

Although the airport scenery from SkyHighSim was modeled to the smallest details (about 99% of buildings and airport institutions), it is quite frame-rate friendly, which means you don’t need to have a powerful computer to fully enjoy it. Its docking systems and all features of this airport are shown in an up to date virtual replica, including recent taxiway changes on the aprons. This scenery is a port from our FSX version. Some of the airport features are:
– Photoreal scenery
– High detailed dynamic and animated objects
– High detailed static aircraft
– Custom HDR lightning
– Taxiways, runway and apron with realistic rendered textures

Navigraph AIRAC Cycle 1413

Navigraph AIRAC Cycle 1413

Another Navigraph AIRAC (Aeronautical Information Regulation And Control) period starting on December 11th, 2014.

Let’s give some background information about the AIRAC Cycle.

The AIRAC cycle was adopted in 1964 and further improved over the years. Key are the worldwide effective dates with 28 days intervals (e.g. 4 August 2005, 1 September 2005, 29 September 2005, …). Effective days are always on a Thursday.

It may look indeed like a long period, 28 days, or even 56, but it should be understood that aeronautical information changes, mostly published through so called AIRAC Amendments.

When you want to know about the AIRAC. Have a look at the dedicated ICAO website.

Back to our Navigraph Cycle 1413, effective from December 11th.
