BMWorld & AmSim Release Palm Beach International Airport for MSFS

BMWorld & AmSim have recently released their rendition of Palm Beach International Airport (KPBI) for Microsoft Flight Simulator, serving the Miami metropolitan area with a yearly average of 7.7 million passengers.

It opened in 1936 as Morrison Field, eventually becoming an important training airfield during World War 2 and operating as a staging base for the Allied invasion of France in 1944, with aircraft departing Palm Beach towards England in preparation for D-Day. 

After a brief return to being a civil airport, the airport was once again utilized for military purposes in the early 1950s as Palm Beach Air Force Base, training nearly 23,000 airmen during the Korean War.

The Air Force Base was closed in 1962, and Palm Beach was back to being just a civilian airport. 

Currently, the airport has 32 gates and three concourses. Concourse A houses Bahamasair and Silver Airways; B houses Air Canada, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Sun Country Airlines, and United Airlines; C, on the other hand, holds Delta, Frontier, JetBlue, and Spirit.

The scenery features an accurate rendition of the airport, with high-resolution custom ground textures, custom ground markings, parallax windows, animated jetways, and fully modeled buildings and objects.

It’s available on the iniBuilds Store for roughly $17.09, requiring at least 1.62 GB of free hard disk space to install.
