Orbx Releases Bryce Canyon Airport for MSFS

September 26, 2020

Continuing on their fast-moving release schedule, Orbx have released another airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator today in the form of Bryce Canyon Airport in southern Utah.

Billed as a premier base for the Bryce Canyon National Park, the airport can also be used as a hub for scenic flying in and out of nearby parks like Zion, Arches and Monument Valley according to the developer.

"Ken [Hall] has brought his famous eye for detail to this new airfield; all buildings have been perfectly recreated in complete UHD detail. Careful implementation of PBR and normal mapping brings out the best of the new sim engine, whilst custom hand-edited aerial imagery brings a considerable improvement to the ground colouring and detail over the default Bing imagery," reads the product description.
