Third-party developers surprise-released a very relevant airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator, while another has been teased.
We start with iniBuilds' launch of Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (PHNL), also known as Honolulu International Airport.
A rendition of this relevant destination in the middle of the Pacific Ocean has been highly requested by many Microsoft Flight Simulator users, so it's great that we finally have one.
It's now available on the developer's own store for $25.17 plus applicable VAT. It comes with the following perks.
- Up to date airport layout, reflecting current real-world locations, including high quality models of all airport buildings & objects
- Hand-made textures with crisp, bespoke texture sets, including modelled cliffs
- Accurate, high quality modelled surrounding POIs including ambient lighting
- True-to-life airport landside recreation with custom ground decals, street signs, vegetation, parking barriers and more
- Official GSX Profile included in the scenery folder
- Accurately modelled and positioned dynamic airport lighting
- Detailed modelled terminal interior
As a bonus, 10% of all revenue in the first month starting today will be donated to the American Red Cross to help with relied after the Hawaii Wildfires.
You can watch an impressive trailer below.
Another reveal comes from Flight Sim Development Group, which released a single screenshot of an upcoming airport. While the name wasn't officially mentioned, the screenshot leaves no room for doubt.
It's Hurghada International Airport (HEGN). Located on the coast of the Red Sea, it's a popular tourist destination and the second-busiest airport in Egypt.
At the moment, further details have not been shared.
