Orbx announces Ålesund Vigra Airport for MSFS

Orbx announces Ålesund Vigra airporta

Orbx works hard in certain areas of the world. It’s well known for it’s Australian and West Coast US sceneries. Another region that gets a lot of attention in Scandinavia. And good news for everyone who loves Northern Europe, because Orbx announced their first Norwegian airport today: Ålesund Vigra Airport (ENAL). This scenery was also developed for P3D and released in June.

This scenery will be developed by Finn Hansen. Ålesund Vigra is a big destination for tourists. We can find a variety of LCCs operating at this airport, but also the famous Norwegian regional airline Widerøe with its dash 8s. It’s an airport where operations with all types of aircraft are common. The airport is located in the Norwegian fjords.

The airport will have more features than the P3D version. It will have full BPR textures. It will also make use of MSFS’ sloped runways features. You can also see custom ground poly and terraforming. 15cm aerial imagery for the airport and its immediate surroundings. However, this addon will also improve the areas further from the airport. Many POIs in the bigger region are included too.

We can expect very high-detailed models. Not only from the airport. The nearby harbour will have boats docked that are actually docked at the real Ålesund port. The MSFS weather engine will also challenge you in this place that experiences many different weather conditions throughout the year.

This product will be available throught the MSFS marketplace, as well as the Orbx Store. P3D customers get a 40% discount if they buy it for MSFS on the Orbx store. More info will be reported about when it becomes available later this week.

I first got into aviation 5 years ago. I bought FSX: Steam Edition first and used that for about a year. I wanted something more realistic and decided to buy some addons and eventually upgrade to Prepar3D and that's what I still use today. I've always loved writing and doing research and am very happy to put it to good use here.
