Zero Dollar Payware Updates Anchorage International Airport for X-Plane 12

Zero Dollar Payware has recently updated their rendition of Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (PANC) for X-Plane 12, the busiest airport in Alaska with a yearly average of 4.9 million passengers.

Established in 1951 as Anchorage International Airport, it was later renamed in honor of Ted Stevens, a prominent U.S. Senator from Alaska. During World War II, the airport played a crucial role as a refueling stop for aircraft flying between the contiguous United States and the Soviet Union.

In the post-war years, Anchorage became a key stopover for flights between North America and Asia, thanks to its strategic location at the crossroads of air routes over the Pacific Ocean.

Currently, Anchorage airport is one of the busiest cargo airports in the world, handling a significant portion of air freight between Asia and North America and serving as a central hub for passenger flights. It’s a hub for Alaska Airlines, Atlas Air, FedEx Express, Polar Air Cargo, Ravn Alaska, and UPS Airlines. Air Canada, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Ryan Air, Sun Country Airlines, and United Airlines also serve it.

The scenery features an accurate rendition of the airport, with custom taxiways and runways, custom orthophotos, 3D grass, custom buildings, SAM jetways, performance-friendly optimization, and more. 

It’s available for free on the Threshold Forum.
