As promised earlier, Aviotek has released their Dubai Airport rendition in line with the opening of Cosford 2018, after over a year in development. Released in the X-Aviation Store, the scenery covers Dubai's main airport which features custom mesh and dynamic airport vehicle movements. A simple rendition of the Dubai Skyline and the Skydive airstrip is also included into the package for a total size of just under 1GB.

If you're not well versed with Dubai and its major role in the airline network; the airport is the world's busiest airport by international passenger traffic. It is also the third-busiest airport in the world by passenger traffic, the sixth-busiest cargo airport in world, the busiest airport for Airbus A380 and Boeing 777 movements, and the busiest airport in the world operating with only two runways. In 2017, DXB handled 88 million passengers, 2.65 million tonnes of cargo and registered 409,493 aircraft movements.

Highlighted Features

  • Highly detailed rendition of Dubai International Airport
  • Photoreal scenery provided
  • Detailed terminal and city buildings
  • X-Plane 11 HDR Lights
  • Airport vehicle movements
  • Custom mesh for the area included

The scenery looks quite decent. Although the groundwork and general texturing quality may need some improvement. Nonetheless a solid solution for those who wants an X-Plane native product for X-Plane 11. Purchase the scenery here for $25 ($24.95): LINK
