Aerosoft has a good selection of major airports in it's Mega Aiport Series. November 2016 saw the latest aiport to be added to this fine colleciton and that was Italy's second largest airport, Milan Malpensa. It's currently available from Aerosoft store for about 26 Euros.
It's available for FSX,FSX Steam and P3D. There is an installer which allows you to intsall to either of these simulators! great news as FSX and P3D joint owners can install to both FSX and P3D.
Milan is Italy's 2nd largest city and they also have the second largest airport in Italy after Rome's Leonard Da Vinci Airport. In reality it is a huge aiport with plenty of buildings, aircraft, shops and good connections from all over Italy. The airport actually started out as "City of Busto Arsizio Airport". The airport is located in the north of Italy and North West of the center of Milan.
The airport has two terminals and two runways as well as a dedicated cargo terminal. In europe Milan is the 29th busiest airport, it served about 18.5 million passengers in 2015. With regards to cargo it handles over 435,000 tons of international freight annually! In addition it also serves as a hub for Italy's largest airline Alitalia.
We tried the airport in both FSX steam edition and P3D v3.4 and we were not disappointed. It looks great in both simulators. With excellent authentic sounds of vehicles, and if you have My traffic 6 addon this airport really comes alive! This addon airport is very atmospheric and having not long been to Malpensa in real life ourselves, we have to say it is an accurate representation. Pricing is not cheap but not too expensive either, It is one of the best airports we looked at for FSX and P3D and we highly recommend it. Click here for the video review.
