Samedan Airport (IATA: SMV, ICAO: LSZS), also known as Engadin Airport, is a regional airport in Samedan in the Engadin valley of Switzerland, 5 km from St. Moritz.
At the end of World War II, Swiss authorities identified existing locations that were to be modernized as regional airports, a second tier of infrastructure to support the primary urban airports, with Samedan being one of the five.

FacilitiesThe airport has one runway designated 03/21 with an asphalt pavement measuring 1800 x 40 metres (5905 x 130 ft).[1][2][3] Because of its location at the bottom of a valley, it is not equipped with an instrument landing system.

OperationsAt an elevation of 1,707 metres (5,600 ft), it is the highest airliner airport in Europe (with Courchevel being the highest for STOL aircraft only). It is also considered one of the most challenging airports in the world because of its difficult topography and winds, and because of the thinness of the air at its altitude.

The airport does not have any scheduled passenger flights (the nearest such airports are Lugano, 185 km/115 mi and Zürich, 220 km/135 mi distance by road). Much of its traffic consists of light to heavy general aviation traffic, including many private-corporate jets, private propeller aircraft, and the fleet of Swiss Jet. One of the biggest planes seen there, more often than not, is the HK Co.'s 737-200 or the A319. The takeoff generally requires the spooling up of engines, with brakes on, to minimize the time on the runway while maximizing as much speed possible. This technique is generally performed by bigger aircraft, with heavier payload.

    I think it's something about keeping awareness of aircraft altitude/location/speed and good control in the vicinity of these mountains, it demands precision, either in the real world or the simulated one. It's a great experience! =) https://www.gstaad-airport.ch/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/200101_pilots_briefing_v10.pdf https://gstaad-airport.ch/piloten/

    Absolutely love this airport add-on. And it continuously get even better now with this upgrade. Thank you so much.

    For those flying to this airport, try the RNP Guided Visual RWY03. Nice challenging approach and you also get to appreciate what the developer has created near the runway.

    Thank you so much for this truly incredible airport. The level of immersion when flying from it is wonderful. I have one small request, though. Would it be possible to correct the windsocks? Both of them indicate a wind direction that is 180 degrees off. I assume it is a mistake in an ASOBO model of the windsock used, but apparently it is relatively easy to fix, since many authors have done this already. Thanks again.

    hi,

    at present I have not yet begun to understand how objects that are affected by the wind work. and i'm a little sorry about that but time is limited unfortunately

    Perhaps it is best if we can urge Asobo to fix this. Otherwise somebody could create a mod. I wished I knew how to do this.

    One of my favorite airports from your creations. Thank for this and all of your other creations. All seem to be very well selected and produced with excellent details.

    Have sent you an appreciation donation.

    Hello,

    thought I already left a comment/question .. so sorry if there's somewhere a double post.

    I have 3rd Party mesh installed (Taburet) and Samedan has therefore some elevation problems.

    Do you have any idea if that could be avoided from your side as developer of the airport or if I could from my side change any priority?

    Many thanks!

    Very nice work!

    Would you be kind and consider for next versions to rename your folder to a more friendly name that can be recognized easily?
    many of us like me download or update a lot of mods. Sometimes they have just a strange name on the folder. example: "sdr samedan"... Unless one knows the name is impossible to reasociate with St Moritz.

    Many of us use Addons Linker and have the mods organised. I think a naming scheme like: ICAO Airport Name Author would be best. This way when someone looks into the folder structure sees something easy to understand what it is.

    My point is that having cryptic names or pseudos at the beginning really serves no one.

    Thank you. I hope it doesn't offend. I will try to communicate slowly this request to all modders from which I download mods and they are named in not easy to use way.

    Best Regards.

    Hi man,

    You can rename every addon in your community folder.

    Btw Samedan is the city where this airport is sited. Just out of St Moritz

    I know, I am doing it but doing it for 100 addons is one little issue. The main problem is once I download 15 updates... I don't know which is which. Throwing them in community folder and hoping for the best is not the best practice as we know bugs and problems do occur.
    I do know what that name means but for example third times in a row I had to google it to remember... Ah... St Moritz.
    Of course, it's your work and you choice but, just saying. Is not ergonomic.
    Cheers.

    hi,

    unfortunately the snow along the runway is made by the new heigh map elevation paint sistem inside sdk... and the resolution is not the best.

    I'll try to improve in next release, because mesh are too "hard"
