Origami Studios To Release Gatwick Airport on February 12th (XP11)

Announced back in mid-January this year, Origami Studios have yesterday confirmed, that their rendition of Gatwick Airport (EGKK) for X-Plane 11 is scheduled to be released on February 12th, 2021.

And although the price is yet no public, the feature list was made available through the iniBuilds Store. Based on that, the scenery will offer custom colour-corrected orthoimagery compatible with Orbx’s TrueEarth product range, custom 3D buildings around the airport, PBR ground textures, or custom realistic HDR lighting, for example.

Furthermore, we can expect an airport layout from 2019-2020 with optional 3D grass and tailored compatibility with JustFlight Traffic Global. Of course, with the up to date layout, the new Boeing hangar, Pier 6 extension construction, and the new A380 gate will be present in the scenery.

The scenery will be able to be purchased through the iniBuilds Store for a yet unknown price on February 12th, 2021.

I've been a flight sim enthusiast for some time now, and I've always enjoyed flying to various destinations all over the world. My favourite airport is by far Corfu with its scenic and challenging approach. I founded FSNews in May 2019.
