Orbx Announces Unalaska Airport for MSFS

Through their forums, Orbx has officially announced the development of a new scenery from Matteo Venanziani, the Unalaska Airport (PADU) for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Matteo has a long history with Orbx, previously also releasing sceneries like Van Nuys, Burbank, and Skiathos for MSFS.

His scenery of Unalaska Airport (PADU) is set to have highly detailed textures depicting the wear and tear details on the ground and buildings. Furthermore, the scenery is going to feature accurately represented taxi signs and will feature local landmarks in the nearby city.

To fully enjoy the scenery whilst flying around, Orbx’s Unalaska Airport is going to feature photorealistic orthoimagery for the airport and the city. What’s more, given that the area is often covered in snow, Matteo made sure that the custom buildings throughout the scenery are going to allow snow to accumulate on the roofs and ground.

Unalaska Airport (PADU) is a remote public airport on Amaknak Island, near the Bering Sea. The airport sees regular traffic from local cargo operators with direct routes to Anchorage and passenger routes to Anchorage and nearby islands. The approach to the airport can be challenging for many, given that the runway is bordered by a steep drop-off into the ocean on one side and a hill on the other.

The release date of the scenery is yet to be announced, however, assuming from the preview, the scenery seems to be very close to release.
