The Airport Zurich (previously Zurich-Kloten) is the largest airport of Switzerland, now in a brand new version for FSX, P3D and FSX: Steam Edition. This completely new scenery is full details, including every building and the entire airport environment, docking systems and all features you would expect from a modern scenery for FSX and P3D.
The ground layout has been created from scratch based on high resolution aerial images and it complies with the current data of the charts. What is special about our scenery is that it represents the complete and finished development condition of the real world counterpart.
The airport has three runways, two of which crossing each other. Additionally, the airport has three docks – A, B and E. Dock B, as the oldest, was shut down in 2003 and from there on served as a so-called event dock which was available for rent for various events. In 2008, Dock B was completely dismantled and replaced by a new construction at the same location and was finished in 2011.
The finished development condition results in some new features:
Newly created buildings and objects with lots of 3D details, partly high resolution 2K textures with rendered shadows and lighting.
New transparent boarding bridges with glass sides at every gate.
Updated taxiways and parking positions, as creating parking positions for the Airbus A380 changed other positions and moved lots of taxiway markings.
Parking position E67 at Dock E now includes a separate, elevated boarding bridge
Static Airbus A380 of Emirates Airline, parking at Gate E67 (optional)
Terminal 2 is currently being rebuilt and set to be finished by the end of 2015 – we already completely finished the terminal for this scenery
Enhanced Apron P with additional parking positions
Jet engine test site with new, large noise absorption hall
The entrances to terminals 1 and 2 are currently being rebuilt – we already completely finished the reconstruction for this scenery, including a new roofing

Conclusion by Avsim.com: "In conclusion, while I previously owned Zurich v1.0, I would find no issue in purchasing v2.0. Why? Well the most significant reason is that v2.0 is a significant improvement over v1.0 from a visual quality perspective and it also offers you a much more detailed rendition of the airport in its current state. Aerosoft has certainly outdone themselves (literally) with v2.0 and I would highly recommend it to anyone who desires the best scenery for this region."
