Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is the Netherlands’ main international airport, located 20 minutes (9.1 km; 5.6 mi) southwest of Amsterdam, in the municipality of Haarlemmermeer. The airport’s official English name, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, reflects the original Dutch word order (Luchthaven Schiphol). The airport used to have the IATA code of SPL, which has fallen into disuse and has been replaced by AMS.
 

The airport is the primary hub for KLM as well as for Arkefly, Corendon Dutch Airlines, Martinair and Transavia. The airport also serves as a European hub for Delta Air Lines and as a base for Vueling. Schiphol is considered to be an Airport City.

The Scenery for FSX was made by Menno C. Robert using ADEx 1.50, aeronautical maps and Google Earth (2008) the default AFCAD has been completely reworked to reflect today´s situation including gate assignments.

Schiphol has a complex runway lay-out and usage and FSX may assign a runway that in real life is not used as such. I have implemented Jim Vile´s crosswind runway technique to open all runways. Now the pilot can decide which runway to use but AI aircraft may show unrealistic behaviour. Only tailored AFCADs taking into account different wind directions will solve this but that is beyond the scope of this project.

Jetways appear based on your ´scenery complexity´ settings. Higher settings may effect your pc´s performance.
