Gaya Simulations Airport Announcement Blowout: Stansted, Munich, Zurich, Rio and Many More

Scenery developer Gaya Simulations has announced a huge number of new airports which are currently in development by the studio. The announcement comes from the live stream from the team over on YouTube.

In total, Gaya Simulations has confirmed that they are developing eight brand new updates and also a significant update to their already released Vienna scenery.

In summary, the following airports have been so far announced:

  • LOIJ – Sankt Johann Airfield
  • LSZH – Zurich
  • EDDM – Munich
  • LAZA – Lugano
  • EGSS – London Stansted
  • SBRJ – Rio De Janerio Santo Dumon Airport
  • KBID – Block Island
  • ENCN – Kristiansand Airport
  • LOWW – Vienna Airport v1.2 (Update)

We have been told that Gaya Simulations wants to bring all the airports to all platforms, but there are some uncertainties behind outright confirming that information for now. However, each airport will be build to a high standard with the simulator’s strengths in mind.

It’s worth noting that the developer is holding a contest where a lucky winner will be able to win all of the airports for free in this stream. Visit the Gaya Simulations forums for more details.

We have been provided with a range of screenshots for many of the newly announced airports on the stream.

X-Plane 11 aircraft developer FlightFactor has shared a handful of new images of their upcoming 787 Pro product for the simulator. The new images highlight the cockpit texture work that has been ongoing since the development was announced back in September.

The new previews were shared on Twitter, with the team simply saying “[s]ome more textures” before then showcasing a range of new textures.

FlightFactor also shared a teaser for their Airport Visual System for the 787 Pro also.

Whilst the product is clearly still in the early stages of development, X-Plane.org seemingly think the product will be released in the 2nd half of 2021. That seems quite an ambitious date to be set considering the early previews we’re still seeing, but nonetheless, we’ll keep you posted of any new developments.
