Verticalsim has recently taken to their Twitter account to post information about their two new upcoming projects. The developer is going to release these two airports for X-Plane 11 and eventually for Microsoft Flight Simulator as well.
Verticalsim is a well-known X-Plane 11 developer, responsible for a wide range of United States airport sceneries. In addition, they are responsible for vStates, which is a freeware ortho imagery scenery pack covering most of the United States. We have also reviewed some of their sceneries, with the latest one being Baltimore.
The developer noted in the Twitter post that two new airports are coming, together with some more to be announced.
The first scenery the developer announced is Nashville (KBNA). It is an international airport located in the state of Tennessee, built in 1937. The airport has four runways and covers 3900 acres. 22 airlines serve the airport and it has 585 daily arriving and departing flights. From this airport, you can get to destinations like Toronto, Charlotte, Chicago O’Hare or even London Heathrow.
McGhee Tyson Airport
Secondly, the developer announced work on their rendition of Knoxville McGhee Tyson Aiport (KTYS). It is an international airport located in Tennessee as well. The airport is close to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Therefore, it is an interesting destination for many flight simmers, as well as real-life travellers. The airport is served mainly by Allegiant, American Eagle, Delta and Frontier. McGhee Tyson Airport offers destinations such as Chicago O’Hare, Atlanta, Denver or Newark.
As of now, Verticalsim hasn’t stated any further information about their development in the upcoming year. However, the developer said that they are aiming to release McGhee Tyson Airport in the first quarter of 2022. The Nashville airport rendition has its release date set for the second quarter of the upcoming year.
