Welcome to Provo Airport
Provo Municipal Airport is a public-use airport in the vicinity of Provo, Utah. It is a small regional airport with domestic destinations mainly to the west of the United States.
Previously, the airport was not in a controlled area, and its first control tower opened in 2005. With the demand for airline service, the airport began its expansion in 2011 and the first flight was flown this year by Frontier Airlines to Denver.
Currently, Allegiant Air is the biggest airline operator at this airport. They offer routes to Austin, Chicago-Midway, Houston-Hobby, Las Vegas and even San Diego.
Verticalsim also confirmed the main features of this scenery in the Discord post. There is going to be a 2023 airport layout, also coming with an AI-Logic taxiway layout. The airport surroundings feature high-resolution texturing, with the surrounding ortho being at a resolution of 0.5cm/pixel.
Speaking of smaller details, there is proper airport lighting, custom taxiway signage and animated passengers in the 3D terminal interior. The 3D interior is not present everywhere, though, as the team confirmed that there are some parallax windows and custom LOD to save performance.
At the moment, we are not certain of the price this scenery is going to release at. On the other hand, if you would like to learn more about Verticalsim and their work, make sure to read our different article here. We will keep you updated on Verticalsim Provo when it releases.
