Orbx Releases Newcastle Airport for X-Plane

November 24, 2020

Despite initial signs that Newcastle would be simultaneously released for X-Plane 11 and Microsoft Flight Simulator, Orbx has gone ahead with the former and released the house-made scenery for Laminar's sim today.

Prior to last week, Newcastle had undergone a sustained period of silence on the X-Plane front, having been announced over a year ago at Flight Sim Show 2019 in Cosford.

The developer provided the following feature list for the scenery:

  • Detailed and stunning PBR rendition of Newcastle International Airport
  • Ultra-high quality texture work throughout
  • Stunning 3D modelling
  • 30cm per pixel photoreal
  • Great challenging runway for heavy jets
  • Highly detailed PBR Ground Service Equipment
  • SAM animated jetways
  • Made for TrueEarth Great Britain Central

The Microsoft Flight Simulator version of this scenery is also expected to release very soon, so stay tuned for more information.

You can purchase Orbx's Newcastle Airport scenery for X-Plane 11 for $24.95 AUD (approx. US$18.26 | €15,41 | £13.70) from OrbxDirect.

Threshold encourages informed discussion and debate - though this can only happen if all commenters remain civil when voicing their opinions.
