Orbx Announces Palm Springs International for Aerofly FS 2

Palm Springs Intl Afs2 Orbx (1)

Jarrad Marshall from Orbx has announced that his next project will be bringing his fantastic Palm Springs International Airport will be converted to IPACS Aerofly FS 2. The original FSX/P3D airport was hugely popular and Jarrad is bringing that detail to another simulator for people to enjoy.

Because Palm Springs sits in the middle of the default coverage area for Aerofly FS 2, it’s a great airport to accompany Monterey Regional and Eagle County. So within the sim, you can fly between a bunch of Orbx airports and also enjoy the high level of detail the sim comes with in between.

As for the product itself, the coverage area is huge. Over 1500sq KM of high resolution ground imagery is included in the download. Everything from the surrounding fields, to the golf courses and local communities – there’s plenty of sight-seeing to be done. You’ll be able to hunt down local casinos, holiday resorts and even waterparks. Jarrad has even modelled the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, which allows visitors to reach the top of San Jacinto – this is complete with a challenging helipad. Even if you choose to fly at night, the vast array of 3D lights will keep you company as your fly your way around Palm Springs.

As for the airport, Palm Springs International sees regular flights from a range of airlines and destinations meaning there’s plenty of opportunity to come and explore. If that doesn’t take your fancy, then exploring the airport surroundings is also a treat with Jarrad cramming in loads of details for everyone to see and enjoy. This includes the Aviation Museum, variety of facilities and the new control tower.

IPACS Aerofly FS 2 takes full advantage of the latest hardware and technology to provide a smooth experience – even on a mid-end system. Jarrad says that this version of Palm Springs International is far superior in terms of performance than that of the FSX/P3D versions. Although no mention of price, we can’t imagine it being too different to that of the other releases of Aerofly FS 2 products (including the cross-platform discount).

You can view a huge number of screenshots via the forums right now. Once it’s out, we’ll let you know.
