Flightbeam’s Wellington Airport Releasing this Month

Progress in the beta is going well as a release date draws near.

Scenery developer Flightbeam has been sharing a few new teaser images over the past week, showing us what their upcoming Wellington International Airport (NZWN) will look like when it releases for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

On their development blog, Flightbeam said that they were furiously testing the airport to ensure that when it does release, the community will be pleased. Having used locals to the airport, they have been able to get the details incredibly close to the real-world airport, giving the community a realistic rendition of the iconic New Zealand airport.

One of the first previews showcased was the new runway guard lights. This was shown off in video form and you can also see the elevated wig-wags, fully animated.

Further previews shared by Flightbeam highlight some of the hand-placed details scattered across Wellington Airport. From the hand-placed rocks, and objects to the graffiti that spreads across the wall at runway 34’s threshold. The groundwork has also had plenty of intricate work done to it, with multiple layers being used to really elevate the details right down to the saturated asphalt.

Flightbeam has been working extensively on this airport for quite some time and that work will soon be in the hands of the wider community. It has been confirmed that Wellington International Airport should release sometime in April 2022. More exact details will be shared as beta testing progress continues.

Whilst you wait, you can also learn about how Flightbeam is bringing its own VDGS to Auckland and future airport projects.
