Antarctic Airfields

The Antarctic Season has begun with a lot more frequency in support/transport flight being operated by many countries into Antarctica, with this, I have noticed Simbrief does not incorporate many of the Antarctic Airfields, including the main ones. For example, I had to fly down to Trolls Airfield (operated by Icelandair 767 last week) and had to run a coordinate in the FMC just to find the airfield visually.

The airfiled does not seem to be included in airac data and its GNSS approaches.

Is this something that could be worked on and improved?

My guess is that operator had a tailored NavDatabase in both the FMC and their Flight Planning System to be able to support ops down there.

Looking and I see no AIP that has jurisdiction for Antartica.

Interesting stuff for sure! Would it be possible for Navigraph to apply the airfield locations into the database to help pilots fly to these places?

Cool little chart I found a while back for Troll.
