Orbx NZGS Gisborne Airport Coming Soon!


Orbx has today announced the development of scenery for NZGS Gisborne Airport for FSX & P3D!

In a post to the Orbx forums, Aimee Sanjari wrote: “We are taking you all back down under with the third airport by Finni Hansen, NZGS Gisborne Airport in New Zealand. If you’re a fan of Finni’s previous works (ENNO Notodden and ENHF Hammerfest), you’re going to love his recreation of this regional airport.

NZGS is situated on the outskirts of Gisborne, on the East Coast of the North Island in New Zealand and is one of the few airports in the world that has a railway line, the Palmerston North-Gisborne Line, crossing the main runway. Additionally there a heliport located north of the airport on top of a hospital.

She continued: “NZGS is the first Orbx airport to utilize Allen Kriesman’s CityScene tech, using Xpressim software. Included is the entire city of Gisborne, accurately depicted . Coupled with over 100.000 autogen trees and additional buildings outside the city, this package includes everything you would see on a trip into or out of Gisborne Airport. Make sure to be ready on the runway at 13:00 to watch the WA165 steam train make its way across the runway carrying passengers as it has been doing for over 100 years!

“Gisborne Airport airport is situated just next to the ocean in Poverty Bay, with spectacular views of the Young Nick’s Head mountain as you depart over open waters. It consists of a single terminal and gate, an asphalt runway 1310 meters long and several grass runways. Air New Zealand and Sunair both operate out of NZGS, however, the airport is used for a combination of medical flights, SAR, and GA-Traffic – it gets quite busy as you can imagine!”
