#Real-Life #Handcrafted Netherlands Drag and Drop

About this file

This is a small general aviation airport on the frisian island Ameland, Netherlands. The scenery covers the whole area of the airport including the solar park. The complete feature list can be found below. All custom buildings are completely handcrafted.

All information, procedures, and charts for your real or virtual flight to Ameland Airport can be found on the official website: https://www.ehal.nl

ATTENTION: The Ameland lighthouse is not part of this scenery anymore. It is now distributed with my Lighthouses Wadden Sea NL scenery in order avoid conflicts between both packages and for a clear  distinction between airports and landmarks. However, it comes in a separate directory to allow for installing the Ameland lighthouse without installing all other lighthouses.

If you like my scenery, I would be very happy about a small donation to buy me a coffee or a beer. Please find the donation link below and in my profile: https://flightsim.to/profile/SinusJayCee This is of course 100% optional.

Features

  • Tower building
  • Hanger building
  • Solar park Ameland
  • Current runway and taxiway layout
  • Marking of runway and taxiways with white and blue pylons
  • Animated signal island indication landing direction depending on wind direction
  • Custom fences with special signs
  • Helipad
  • Multiple parking positions
  • PBR materials
  • Night lighting
  • Some basic terraforming
  • Some generic objects (windsocks, tables, fuel station, static aircraft, cars)
  • Removed auto-gen buildings on the grass
  • Covered undesired objects in aerial image
Remark: The screenshots show version 1.8 and do not reflect all recent changes.

Planned Features

  • Adjust hight and color of grass on runway and taxiways
  • Custom windsocks to closer match the real ones
  • Flags and signs at entrance
  • Maybe some additional Ameland landmarks
Installation
Copy "sinusjaycee-ameland" from the zip file to your community folder.

Optional: If you are not using my Lighthouses Wadden Sea NL scenery yet, you may give it a try to get the Ameland lighthouse with animated light and radar. It can also be installed separately by only installing "sinusjaycee-lighthouse-ameland" from that package.

Updating
Make sure you delete the old version of the scenery from the community folder before installing the new one.

Support
If you should have any questions, difficulties, or suggestions, please contact me on Flightsim.to, Reddit, or the official MSFS forum.

This scenery has initially been uploaded to https://flightsim.to/ and updates are distributed through this page as well. If you downloaded the scenery from elsewhere, make sure you have the latest version

    Wow! I remember loading into this airfield with the default scenery and feeling lost, the grass strips and taxiways are pretty hard to see plus the hanger and tower area in the default scenery are just bad - see my video on Ameland here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3hPKdDyOgc

    Almost perfect. I love this kind of work makes flying around my homeland fun.

    Is there any way to make it more clear where the taxi way is?
    Would implementing support for taxi guidance be very difficult?

    As in reality, the taxiways are marking by blue cones. Furthermore, they have a different color than the surrounding area. However, an issue (partially of the SDK) is that the 3D grass remains in the same color as the aerial image.

    What exactly do you mean with taxi guidance?

    From update to update it looks more realistic.
    I can recommend everyone a short flight from Ameland to the East Frisian Islands. :) Just awesome looking scenery in this area!

    Thanks for the positive feedback! Heading to the East Frisian Islands is also of may favorite flights. In addition, can recommend a flight from Ameland in the other direction to Middenmeer ;)

    Hi! Very nice work! Where did you get the ground signs and the various runway objects (white blocks, taxi dividers, etc?)

    If you have custom made them, could I use them for my EHMZ custom airport I'm currently building? Of course I will credit you.

    Thanks :) All those objects are hand-crafted. Just PM me which objects you need, then I can send them to you.

    Many thanks for this great (little) scenery. Flew here a few times as a student pilot. Is it possible for you to change the recreation areas into proper RV's/sta-caravan's? And perhaps to change those multi story houses into more realistic (low) houses?
    Anyway love (your) Ameland airport

    Thanks for your positive feedback! Since you have been there as a real pilot, let me know if you spot any inaccuracies :) Yeah, it bothers me as well that auto-gen doesn't do a very good job in the surroundings, most obvious the multi-story buildings. I have not yet found the time to investigate how to change this, but it is already on my list.

    Beautiful airport, thank you!

    But could you add a star to is so it is easier to find on the map?

    I'm happy you like it :) The airport should have a star since version 1.2 iirc and it shows up on my world map with a star. Can you confirm that you have the latest version installed?

    You are totally right, my apologies. I must have been blinded by the beautiful North Sea coast. Great airport and perfect to practice landings. Thanks again!
