ENSS - Vardø Airport Svartnes

Vardø Svartnes Airport ENSS is a STOL airport on the Varanger peninsula of Northern Norway, typically serviced by Widerøe Dash 8-100s. The addon uses the Nordics DLC and default buildings, handcrafted with particular attention to runway slope, approach lighting, and approach-adjacent scenery.


Svartnes is a STOL airport serving the municipality of Vardø in northern Norway. It is primarily operated by Widerøe DHC 8s, and was recently (2019) re-paved with new GA parkings. As with the rest of the region the airport enjoys a very dry climate; virtually all precipitation falls during winter. Ceilings at this airport are frequently low and fog often rolls in from the east to reduce visibility.


This airport uses 100% default assets plus a few custom apron-runway textures.


Changelog 1.4.1 hotfix: Fixed pathing error in AirportServices, removing ground services for ALL other airports. I apologise that this went unnoticed. On the other hand, if you prefer the world that way you can just use the old 1.4 to achieve airports without ground services.
Changelog 1.4: Manual heightmapping, corrections to lighting, improved details near approaches including the tunnel, the moving van advert, and the beached fishing boat.


V 1.5 Changelog: Adjusted to make use of improved height mapping in Nordics DLC. Negligible impact.


V 1.5 Features

  • Corrected runway slope.
  • Improved airport markings, parkings, terrain, buildings.
  • Improved terrain (mainly east of runway and along approaches).
  • Think the Nazca lines are cool? Come see the apron lines of Vardø and be amazed.
  • 4.5 degree PLASI.

Known issues:

  • No satellite imagery.
  • No replacement for witch burning memorial yet.
  • Highly snow-resistant aprons/runway, or feverish activity from the cleaning crew.



Thanks a ton for any donations you make. <3

Nice one ! I wish I could use it but misteriously, this mod is making all my airport ground services (cars, trucks, people) disappear. I've been removing and putting them back, mod by mod for hours in my Community Folder to find out which one is and this is unfortunately the one (just this one) making this issue.
Great work, thank you!

What are the yellow rectangles? I am still finding my way around the SKD...
Whoa, so detailed! Perfect work, thank you!
This is honestly one of the best looking airports out there. Been flying there 3 times today. awesome!!

These items are currently on the list and will be processed soon!
Suggestion, bugs and ideas for the future.
