Orbx Announces Gold Coast International Airport for MSFS

Recently announced via the Orbx forum, it is official that Orbx is bringing Gold Coast International Airport (YBCG) to Microsoft Fight Simulator.

The Announcement

Gold Coast International Airport is officially coming to MSFS, courtesy of some dedicated work from the long-time developer, Matteo Veneziani. Having previously developed the airport for FSX and Prepar3D, Matteo already has a strong foundation to develop the airport with exceptional detail. Along with previous development knowledge, Matteo has been using real-world photography and input from locals to ensure that the product is developed to the highest standard.

Although precise details about the product’s features are yet to be announced, Orbx shared some teaser previews of the upcoming release. The modelled objects appear to be highly detailed, including high-quality textures and logos.

Although the previews only demonstrate the individual objects and not the actual airport, the community can trust Matteo’s ability to piece the scenery together nicely based on his previous work. This work includes recent standout sceneries for MSFS, including Hollywood Burbank, Skiathos and Chester.
