Orbx has just wrapped up their extremely lengthy presentation during Cosford 2019 and they announced a bunch of new airports, new partnerships and much more. Here is a break down of what they shared during their time here at Flight Sim Show 2019.

Flight Sim Show 2019: Orbx Presentation Round-Up

Alderney Airport EGJA

The airport is just a few weeks away from release and will be coming to X-Plane and Prepar3D. The airport, acquired originally from Earthsimulations, will have many Orbx improvements such as a fully remodelled airport, new texture work and much more.

TrueEarth US Northern California

Currently, the next TrueEarth region is in beta testing. Northern California will be home to many included landmarks which will be modelled in the usual Orbx standard. Still early in the testing phases but will keep us updated as progress is made.

TerraFlora for X-Plane

Originally from Turbulent Designs on Prepar3D, the tool will soon be coming to the world of X-Plane. TerraFlora is a tool that replaces tree auto-gen and other elements within the sim to create a more photorealistic appearance. No further information.

Tacoma Narrows Airport KTIW

Coming to X-Plane, the North American airport in the State of Washington will offer scenic views across the area and give pilots the chance to land at the airfield. No release dates.

Edinburgh Airport for X-Plane and Prepar3D

Developed by the in-house team, GayaSimulation, the airport is pre-beta with an estimated release in 4-weeks. Edinburgh airport, in Scotland, is home to various airlines including easyJet, Ryanair and also offers seasonal flights to other airlines, too. Coming to both X-Plane and Prepar3D v4.

Orbx + MilViz

Orbx will soon start to sell MilViz aircraft via Orbx Central. The entire MilViz range will come via the platform to make it easier than ever to download and install their catalogue of products. No specific time frame was given.

Orbx + Echo Papa Developments

The first aircraft to be delivered will be the Spitfire Mk XIV, built 100% by the book and with full PBR support and many beautiful details. More details to follow.

Orbx + Parallell 42

Initial release date missed partly due to feedback after Expo – will use the previously announced pricing and subscription model. You can read that in our previous article.

Sky Park Offline coming in November – limited functionality and dynamic areas, which will be unlocked via the online edition. This will launch afterwards in the future. The dynamic object environment is injected via this online platform and will require the subscription method.

You can read more in our dedicated post on The SkyPark.

Some changes to the staffing at Orbx were also confirmed. John Venema’s title will be Founder and CPO, with Anna Cicognani now the CEO of Orbx. Ed Correia will become the COO with Ben McClintock assigned the role of CIO.
