Adding to the handful of airports in Washington Orbx have released thus far, Orbx have now announced Swanson (2W3) is to come to X-Plane 11.

With locals living either side of the runway, Swanson will be shipped with a custom modelled airport, houses and static aircraft. Photoreal coverage of Ohop Lake has also been thrown in.

Using photographs taken on-site, from a helicopter and a fly-past, Orbx have used 60cm imagery in the region, and 15cm within the airfield.

Although not required, TrueEarth US Washington is recommended by the developer.

The list of features are as follows:

  • 60cm and 15cm per pixel
  • Airport and houses modeled
  • 3D modelled groundpoly incl. runway and aprons
  • Photoreal coverage incl. Lake Ohop
  • Custom modeled static aircraft
  • Based on actual on-site photos
  • Entire town of Eatonville is modeled
  • Seamless integration with TrueEarth US Washington

In addition, it does not appear as though Orbx will be honouring the 40% cross-platform discount. The developer recently confirmed this discount will end two weeks after Innsbruck is released.

No price was associated with the announcement.

The airport will be available from their new product manager, Orbx Central, featuring Mac and Linux compatibility.

Not too long ago, Orbx also released three airports within TrueEarth US Washington, and updated the regional product.
