Orbx Sandefjord Airport Released for Microsoft Flight Simulator

January 21, 2021

Considered Oslo's second airport, Sandefjord Airport was announced as Orbx's next Microsoft Flight Simulator project just a week and a half ago, with news coming today that the product has now been released.

Created by Finn Hansen and Jakub Łukaszewski, the pair having previously worked on Notodden Airport - also located in Norway - and Alesund Vigra Airport in the north of the country.

"Torp Airport is a major Norwegian airport, located on the west side of the Oslofjord. It is linked with Oslo Gardermoen airport, serving mostly low-cost and charter carriers flying to destinations across Europe," reads the description.

"Regular visitors include Wizzair, KLM, Ryanair and Widerøe. On site is also the European Helicopter Center: Educating future helicopter pilots, Pilot Flight Academy for fixed wing education, as well as Widerøe and others' maintenance hangars."

A feature list was also provided, which goes as follows:

  • Ultra-detailed depiction of Sandefjord Torp Airport, Norway
  • Made from the ground up for MSFS using PBR and 4K textures
  • Interior modelling and passengers
  • Custom PR included
  • Unique GSE vehicles, as well as GA statics
  • Custom cars on carparks
  • Unique terraforming and mountainside modelling
  • Carefully optimized for high performance using the latest techniques

A Prepar3D version of the scenery is coming soon as well, according to the release post on the Orbx Forum.

Orbx Sandefjord is now on sale for $22.99 USD (approx. US$17.87 | €14,73 | £13.06) from the group's online web platform.

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