EPGD Gdańsk MSFS is a highly detailed scenery of Gdańsk Lech Wałęsa Airport in Poland. This product is compatible with Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Gdańsk Lech Wałęsa Airport (IATA: GDN, ICAO: EPGD) is an international airport located 12 km (7.5 mi) northwest of Gdańsk, Poland. Since 2004 the airport has been named after the former Polish president. With around 5 million passengers served annually, it is the 3rd largest airport in Poland, after EPWA and EPKK, in terms of passenger traffic.

The first civilian airport in Gdansk was set up after World War I following the adaptation of the military airfield built in 1910 in the Wrzeszcz district of Gdańsk, formerly known as Langfuhr. That airport was administered by the Senate of the Free City of Gdansk. Since that date, the airport adapted its role and status and its dynamic expansion resulted in the acquisition of new areas and infrastructure changes. In the 1920s Gdansk Airport was transformed into an international airport, also servicing transit flights. It was used by airplanes flying in a variety of companies, including the German-Russian Airlines DERULUFT, with flights between Berlin, Leningrad, and Moscow. The very favorable aviation conditions provided for by the airport in Gdansk enabled the launch of regular flights between Gdansk and Warsaw, Szczecin, Elblag, Malbork, Königsberg (now Kaliningrad), Olsztyn, and Berlin. The first regular Polish air service was launched on September 5th, 1922. It was provided by the Aerolloyd company. It employed Junkers F-13 type planes with twice daily flights on the Gdansk-Warsaw-Lwow route.


The first Polish airport built completely from scratch was launched on May 2nd, 1974 in Gdansk-Rębiechowo. Located on the Wysoczyzna Kaszubska upland, 10 kilometers west of Gdansk and 23 kilometers south of Gdynia, and occupying 240 ha, it created significant market potential for the servicing of air transport. Alongside the political and industrial changes, the airport changed, too. From 1993, the Gdansk Airport company was transformed into a profit-oriented commercial company with an organizational structure fully complying with those that govern business activity in European Union countries.
