Orbx Releases Anacortes Airport for MSFS

Orbx has recently released their rendition of Anacortes Airport (74S) for Microsoft Flight Simulator, a public-use general aviation airport serving Anacortes, Washington, with a yearly average of 9,000 aircraft operations.

It was built in 1968 and inaugurated in 1969 on land purchased by the Port of Anacortes using FAA grant money.

It’s included in FAA’s National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2017-2021 as a local general aviation facility, corresponding to 73% of its yearly traffic as of 2014. Air taxis make up the other 17%.

Developed by Andreas Hegi, the scenery was completely rebuilt for Microsoft Flight Simulator, with a 3D terminal interior, custom PBR textures, an accurate ground layout, custom airport signs and markings, and more.

It’s available on OrbxDirect for roughly $12.35, requiring at least 1.89 GB of free hard disk space to install.
