Project Description

Kassel-Calden Airport is a relatively young commercial airport that was opened on April 4, 2013, located approx. 13.5 km northwest of the city of Kassel. Since January 2015, the airport has referred itself as “Kassel Airport”.

The airport has a CAT IIIb system on the main approach direction 27 and a CAT I system on the secondary direction 09. Landing with an airliner is particularly challenging on runway 09 due to the inclined runway.

Thanks to the technology available in X-Plane 11, this distinctive inclination could also be implemented in the simulator. The surrounding mesh was also adapted together with Maps2Xplane in order to be in no way inferior to the original.
