With the majesty of the Antarctic Peninsula's mountains as your backdrop, navigate a runway that’s embraced by base and hangar buildings on both sides, and seawater at either end. Resembling a compact version of Gibraltar, another British gem, the runway also showcases a road that crosses its path, regulated by traffic lights.

Adding depth to the scenery are the isolated bases of Fossil Bluff and Sky Blu located further south. These make for a sublime playground for the Aerosoft Aircraft Twin Otter. Created by a team of developers boasting over two decades of MSFS development experience, this add-on exemplifies their rich expertise.

Feature-rich and teeming with details, this expansion brings Antarctica to life with its animated features. Witness animated penguins and chain vehicles in action, likely a first in the flight simulator world. The add-on also includes custom-created sounds of animals and vehicles, providing an extra layer of realism to your experience.

Extend your flight beyond the base to witness awe-inspiring glacier cliffs descending into the sea. Navigate around hundreds of thousands of animated icebergs in a larger area around the base, presenting challenging obstacles that may sometimes block your approach.

Offsite locations of automated monitoring stations are marked as points of interest, inviting you for regular check flights and landing opportunities in the field. Additional offsite landing strips at British field locations Sky Blu and Fossil Bluff have been included, featuring custom models and improved terrain imagery/elevation data.

Keep an eye out for the emergency airstrip located on the glacier above Rothera, serving as an alternative landing strip for local aircraft during incoming overseas flights. The carefully crafted landscape flawlessly merges with the surrounding landscape, including updated water bodies, with wind shear details added to the vast white lands on the glacier using a special technique.

A comprehensive manual is provided, including pages of inside knowledge on flying in Antarctica, along with flight plans and simple charts. Experience Antarctica like never before with this MSFS add-on, setting a new benchmark in flight simulation.
