Nimbus Simulations Releases JFK Airport for X-Plane 12

The development team of Nimbus Simulations has released their newest rendition of New York JFK Airport for X-Plane 12. The team published the information about the release yesterday via their Facebook page.

Nimbus Simulations is a renowned developer in the X-Plane community, responsible for a variety of American airport sceneries. On their account, we can find a rendition of Orlando International Airport, Phoenix, Washington Dulles, and even St. Barths and their most famous Chicago O’Hare Airport.

New York JFK is the busiest of three international airports in the New York Metropolitan Area. Regarding passenger traffic, it is the sixth-busiest airport in the country, with over 90 airlines operating from the airport, with nonstop and direct flights to all inhabited continents. The first flight occurred in 1948 and the first jet engine aircraft to appear at the airport was Avro Jetliner in 1950. During this time, the airport averaged 73 daily airline operations.

Nowadays, JFK has five terminals for passengers, a cargo terminal and four runways. The airport even has its own power plant, providing electricity from natural gas.

Nimbus Simulations created a detailed rendition of the airport, with a 3D terminal interior and static people inside of it, 4K textures with the usage of PBR materials, custom night lighting as well as custom ground textures and vehicles, all with PBR textures for the best possible experience.

The scenery is also enriched by native animated ground traffic, native jetway system and other miscellaneous objects, as well as water and snow effects.
