Phuket Airport (VTSP) In Development for P3D

Phuket For P3d (2)

Over on the FSDeveloper forums, user WTFlorian has been working hard on bringing a version of Phuket Airport (VTSP) to Prepar3D. Although the airport was announced some time ago on the FSDeveloper forum, it’s only in the past few weeks that the airport has begun to really take shape.

WTFlorian has been working on this airport since at least September 2020 and is their first scenery creation for any flight simulator. This is a hugely ambitious project for the part-time developer, but the screenshots shared so far seem impressive. From what we can see, the airport will come with custom ground-texturing, dynamic lighting and also interior modelling for many parts of the airport. WTFlorian says they love the airport and regularly travels in and out of the airport virtually and will be working hard to create it as best as possible.

Phuket Airport (VTSP) is one of the primary airports in Thailand and plays a large role in bringing in tourists to the country. Airlines from around the world visit on a regular basis, bringing in passengers from the likes of Europe, the Middle East and many parts of Asia. Thai Airways, Thai Lion Air and Thai Air Asia have many domestic and international routes in and out of the airport. The airport features a single 9,800ft runway and three terminal buildings.

You can see the full development timeline and progress over on the FSDeveloper forum.
