Microsoft Flight Simulator touches down in Vestmannaeyjar

Scenery developer, MM Simulations has announced Vestmannaeyjar Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator is now available.

Vestmannaeyjar is a small volcanic island cluster off the south coast of Iceland. Its only airport, BIVM, on Heimaey has two runways and offers challenging flying conditions due to frequent high winds and low visibility.

In 1973, the Eldfell eruption destroyed most of the town on the island, forcing the entire population to be evacuated to the mainland. Today, the island has scheduled routes to Reykjavík, with a flight time of approximately 25 minutes.

Vestmannaeyjar is located on the south coast of Iceland.
