Greenland is an island in the northern Atlantic. While officially being part of Denmark, Greenland does have a high degree of sovereignity. Geographically, it's the world's largest island.
Greenland's 50000 inhabitants , a population comparable to a small european city, live on an area almost as big as India. This fact, resulting in an incredible population density of 0.028 humans per square kilometers , in addition to the rather small road network means that air travel is vital to the region. Thus, every bigger city has an airport and almost every village has a heliport. All of these routes are served by Greenland's national airline, Air Greenland, some of these under government contract due to being economically unprofitable while being considered necessary by the government.
Scenery in FlightGear
The default scenery for Greenland, the one available via TerraSync currently, is rather little developed with next to no heliports existing and many airports not realistically depicted.
There is a custom scenery available at D-ECHO's github with the corresponding source files (to built it yourself) available here.
The following list is based on this list from Wikipedia. It shows the current status of the respective airport/heliport as available in the custom scenery.
Help and contributions are very welcome, plese contact me (User:D-ECHO) so we can coordinate.
