Andras Field is located at the foot of the alps in southern Bavaria, near the German/Swiss/Austrian border. Sixty minutes of fast cruising you can be in Milan for an evening of opera or in Berlin for some serious shopping. It started out as a military airport and you will still see many parts that remind you of this past life.

Andras Field has a wide 5000 feet runway suitable for heavy aircraft (it used to be a military airport after all), a 6000 feet water runway, helicopter landing sites and even a long glider grass strip. Both the seaplane base as the airport got hangar space for visitors and for larger aircraft based on Andras Field. The project is very much intended to cater for all kinds of FSX flying.

There is a lot to explore at Andras Field and the near surroundings, even after you used it for a long time you will still find new animations and new objects (also because the project will be updated very regular). Just pick a new parking or a new taxi route and you are bound to see new stuff. Andras Field is also the place where our internal developers will test out new ideas and technologies. For example in this first edition we have used MoCap (Motion Capture => read more) to show a whole new kind of animation. From people having an heated argument to people that are dancing. Of course sound effects of all kind are used to complete this.

And yes, Andras Field is a fictive airport. We wanted to create a new idea with new features and there just is no existing airfield that could bring what we needed. We needed artistic freedom to make this a very special place. We needed this liberty also so we could let the users create and manage this airport and all that comes with it. Aerosoft provides the base files and will change it continuously but the users will decide what is changing!

Features:

  • Can handle medium airliners, gliders, seaplanes and helicopters
  • Extensive (and innovative motion capture) animations and sound effects
  • Very smooth frame rates even with extensive details
  • Compatible with all Aerosoft Germany Scenery (and Austria Pro)
  • Airpark owners (optional) get occasional discounts on downloads

Andras Airpark

Directly to the east of Andras Field lies Andras Airpark. At this airpark, aviation enthusiasts or people who need an small aircraft for travel, can keep their private plane in their private hangar, just as other people keep their car in a garage. Airparks are relatively rare in Europe but well known in the USA where they seen to do well because it provides a safe (they are always closed, fenced in) community for people who have some money and who like to be around similar minded people.

Andras Airpark is nothing more than a part of the scenery, but if you like the idea it is also possible to become a resident at Andras Airpark and own your own bit of land in the virtual FSX world. Not only do you get to park your aircraft in your own hangar, you also get to be part of the Andras Field community where the users decide how this project evolves. As users build their own houses we'll be upgrading the scenery files on a regular base so all the users see your house. There is a great deal of 'gameplay' involved in this. For example if the Andras Field Owners Association decides a new taxiway is needed, they will have to organize alternative taxi routes when work is being done. They also got to decide on regulations, are you allowed to taxi on the airpark after sunset or do you need to use one of the electric tractors available? There are now 80+ plots but there is an option to add more when demand is high. If you like this idea you might consider jumping in early as the biggest decisions will have to be made soon after the release of the products. Of course there are forums available and Aerosoft will also support residents with some discounts.

Please note that this whole airpark idea is just an addition to the Andras Field product. If this is not your cup of tea you just see the airpark change and grow but you do not have to use it in any way.
