Orbx have today announced the release of their first scenery products for AeroFly’s FS2! Innsbruck and Meigs Field!
The Capital of the Alps
“A destination that needs no introduction, Innsbruck is one of the iconic airports of the world, with a jaw-dropping backdrop, heart-stopping approaches and location smack dab in the heart of Europe. Acclaimed developer Jarrad Marshall (KPSP/KEGE/KMRY/KJAC/KSEZ/YBCS) has created something truly unique with his first European destination.
Within the scenery’s extraordinary coverage area (our largest to date), explore the peaks and glaciers of the Austrian Alps, the picturesque Inn, Wipp and Stubai Valleys, the historic Brenner Pass and even Germany’s tallest mountain, Zugspitze.
Over a dozen towns and villages dot the Tyrolian landscape, and of course the city of Innsbruck has been created in immaculate detail. Innsbruck Airport itself is the country’s third largest and is a true multi-purpose field; where else will you see busy airline schedules competing for space alongside corporate hi-flyers, rescue and leisure helicopter crew, general aviation flyers, recreational glider pilots and even frequent Red Bull visitors?
Try your hand at the infamously tricky Rwy08 approach, test your aircraft’s performance with a mid-summer departure, or explore the hidden valleys from one of the five bonus heliports – there really is something for everyone. As always, Jarrad has innovated new techniques to tweak the very best performance possible, in order for you to enjoy the airport alongside your favourite hi-end aircraft addons. From the huge coverage area down to the smallest details, Innsbruck truly is the home for all flyers. Far more than just an airport!”
The price is $39.95AUD and it’s available from Orbx Direct here
“Few airports hold as much nostalgia, familiarity, and emotion for aviation enthusiasts. Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, Meigs Field operated as the gateway to corporate Chicago for over half a century. Now, twelve years after its closure, Merrill C. Meigs Field (KCGX) has been recreated with the utmost attention to detail and accuracy. Depicted as it was in its final years, virtual pilots are welcomed to return to what was once the busiest single strip airport in the United States and enjoy it in high definition.
Featuring a fully modeled terminal, highly detailed static aircraft, and other historically accurate elements, the airport has been brought back to life. In addition to the airfield itself, the city of Chicago waterfront and parks district has received a facelift to bring the area up to date. With over a decade of combined experience in flight simulation development, Alex Goff and Tim Harris have developed Meigs Field using latest technology to provide a beautiful and smooth flight simulation experience.”
