Star Atlas Previews Changchun Longjia International Airport

March 21, 2021

Star Atlas have released new previews of their latest add-on scenery for X-Plane 11, Changchun Longjia International Airport, located in the Chinese province of Jilin. 

Changchun Longjia International Airport opened in 2005 and serves the city of Changchun. Although not famous outside of China, the airport handles an impressive 12 million passengers each year. 

The full feature list has still not been released, however, we know that the terminal interior will be modelled, the ground and rail traffic will be fully reproduced, SAM will be implemented and much more. 

The developer has also commented, in Chinese, on the features that will be included: 

"The clock in the parking lot is no longer a rigid map. We modeled it separately and linked it with the simulator through Dataref."

“As usual, there are 10 easter eggs hidden in the work, which will be revealed one year after release”

“We used global dynamic vehicles for the first time in the Changchun project, including infield service vehicles, outfield civilian vehicle, and rail transit systems”

Star Atlas’ Changchun will be sold on the Store and Simmarket for 21.21 USD or 17.77 EUR and will be released this April. 

In September 2020, Star Atlas announced Beijing Daxing for Microsoft Flight Simulator, check out our article.
