Axonos Teases New Airport for X-Plane 11

149016371 499650501434738 3787006168613360670 O

Developer Axonos has teased a brand new airport being developed for X-Plane 11. On the team’s Facebook post, they shared an image of a cargo building surrounded by FedEx aircraft. This post was captioned with “cargo anyone?” suggesting that the airport teased has strong ties to cargo operations.

Whilst we can’t say for sure at this point, the scenery does bare some resemblance to the FedEx cargo hub at Memphis International Airport. This was also suggested by a user on Facebook who guesses it may be Memphis Airport (KMEM). We know that FedEx has strong ties with Memphis Airport so the hint of the aircraft parked at the cargo apron would indeed suggest this is Axonos’ next airport for X-Plane 11.

No confirmation on what the airport has been shared yet. FSElite will, of course, keep you updated. In related news, we know that future Axonos airports will be released via the iniBuilds store.

Update: We have been informed despite the Facebook statement highlighting product releases on the iniBuilds store, this particular airport will not be sold on iniBuilds.

Which airport do you think Axonos is developing next for X-Plane 11?
