Orbx Announces Tweed-New Haven Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator

January 11, 2021

Addressing a chronic lack of Orbx airports in the United States’ densely populated north-eastern seaboard for Microsoft Flight Simulator, Jordan Gough’s latest Orbx product will tackle Tweed New Haven Airport in the state of Connecticut.

“Located only a 15-20 minute flight from the centre of Manhattan and short hop to Boston, KHVN is the perfect stopover point for trips between the two cities. Located in a massive photogrammetry area, the entire city of New Haven is a sensational flight for the low and slow junkie, and fantastic visual circling approach from the north for the heavy haulers.”  

“New to KHVN is a completely reworked custom ground poly, high resolution texture work and fully functional ground services.”

The airport is a conversion of that currently available for Prepar3D, which was released in April 2020.

The feature list for the Microsoft Flight Simulator version is as follows:

  • A true to life depiction of Tweed-New Haven Airport crafted from on-site photos 
  • The largest Orbx airport in the north-eastern USA to date
  • Ultra HD airport buildings with meticulous attention to detail
  • Fully functional ground services
  • Native Microsoft ground poly in Full PBR
  • Perfectly located inside an enormous photogrammetry region with spectacular detail 
  • Custom static aircraft & GSE created exclusively for KHVN
  • Optimized for best performance
  • Perfectly located for short flights to NYC, Boston and the entire north-east coast
  • Made compatible for Microsoft Flight Simulator by Jordan Gough

‘Further information’ can be expected out of Orbx in the coming weeks.
