Verticalsim Release Peter O Knight Airport for MSFS

Verticalsim has taken to Facebook to announce the release of their latest offering for Microsoft Flight Simulator: the Florida-based Peter O. Knight Airport (KTPF).

Featuring high scale detailed models created using PBR textures, this Sunshine State airport also comes with local scenery and surrounding areas and even includes the local yacht club. Other features include cleaned up Ortho, accurate PAPI, custom vegetation, and clutter objects. Future updates are included in the price.

This airport addon is available from the Verticalsim website, priced at $9.99.

The developers have also made it known this will be their last GA offering for MSFS for a while, as they are heading back to X-Plane 11 and international airports.

Located on Davis Islands, near Tampa, Florida, Peter O. Knight Airport was Tampa’s main airport from 1935 to 1945. Today, it is used primarily by General Aviation operators. It is named after the businessman and attorney, Peter O. Knight.

I have been an avid aviation enthusiast for about eight years since I first started using FSX. Apart from flying in the sims (now X-Plane 11 and MSFS) I enjoy reading about aviation through the many periodicals and books available. I live in South Yorkshire in the northern half of the UK.
