    Bornholm Airport by Vidan Design

    Bornholm is a Danish island in the Baltic Sea about 75 nautical miles (140 kilometers) east of Copenhagen and between Sweden and Poland. Bornholm Airport (EKRN) is the island's commercial airport. It is three nautical miles (five kilometers) west of Rønne, which is the island's largest town.

    The airport's elevation is 16 meters (52 feet), and its runway 11/29 is 2,002 meters (6,568 feet) of asphalt. Aircraft as large as an Airbus A321 and a Boeing 737-800 can use this airport, but most air service is proved by smaller aircraft. Danish Air Transport serves this airport with scheduled ATR 72 commuter flights to Copenhagen and summer service to Billund. Charter flights connect Bornholm with cities in Scandinavia and southern Europe. The only other airstrip on the island is grass. Bornholm's time zone is Zulu +1.

    This airport is listed in FSX under the name "Ronne," which is the name of the nearby town. All references I find indicate that this airport hasn't been called Ronne since 1992, which was more than 10 years earlier than introduction of FSX.

    With its recorded history dating at least 1,000 years, Bornholm Island is speckled with historic sites and structures such as medieval castles, forts, churches, and windmills. The island's main industries include fishing, mining, farming, food processing, and tourism.

    Rønne's population was 13,500 as of January 2014. Known for its quaintly cobbled streets and low-timber houses, Rønne is a popular tourist destination among northern Europeans. Its residents depend mostly on fishing, mining, and tourism. The ancient St Nicolas' Church is an easily recognizable landmark.

    Vidan Design's Bornholm X includes the airport, the town of Rønne, and the immediately surrounding countryside. Coverage area is clearly seen in top-down views. Several fundamental features of Bornholm X scenery are listed by Vidan Design, such as the photorealistic ground textures and new ground polygons of high resolution textures.

    This scenery is for FSX and P3D. I reviewed the FSX version.
