Since “Helgoland X” has grown older but is still a popular destination, we decided to create a worthy up-to-date successor – this is “Helgoland FSX V2.0”. This new add-on promises an even higher level of detail and countless new and exciting options. Large parts of the scenery were created from scratch.
Forces of nature have reshaped the East coast of the “Duene”. RWY 21 has previously been blocked by a high sand dune that is now entirely gone. While approaches got a bit easier here the southern end of the airport is now a place where waves break around the southern tip of the runway. 10 years ago this has been surrounded by a large beach and construction teams are hard at work to prevent further loss of sediments.
In the wake of “green energy” Helgoland is currently becoming an important maintenance hub for nearby offshore wind parks. The existing military SAR base has been extended by an offshore maintenance helipad with its own hangar. From here you can fly your chopper to transformer stations out in the sea. All of them have their own helipad and make for a thrilling experience to approach when waves are high.
Extremely detailed scenery
1 meter resolution mesh (so you see the smallest dunes near the airport)
Very good performance
Animated sea gulls (better not hit those!)
Sounds linked to scenery objects (waves, bird, ships and even the sounds of the church bells at noon)
Extensive shipping traffic (on shipping routes, ferries, and traffic to the wind parks)
Helgoland-Düne airfield (with extremely short runway)
