Orbx Announces Essendon Fields Airport for MSFS, P3D and XPL

Over on Facebook, Orbx has announced they will be bringing Essendon Fields Airport (YMEN) to Microsoft Flight Simulator, Prepar3D and X-Plane 11. Essendon Fields Airport holds a special place for Orbx as it serves as their main HQ and so we can expect a super high-quality rendition of the Australian airport.

In fact, the airport has been developed as part of the airport’s centenarian birthday celebrations. Essendon Fields Airport started initially as Melbourne’s main airport but was overtaken by the larger Melbourne International Airport. That said, Essendon Fields still serves as an important location for the city with numerous corporate jets still flying in and out of the airport. The airport also serves as an important base for numerous flying clubs for those looking to get their PPL and other licences.

Orbx shared a range of previews of the airport in Microsoft Flight Simulator. In particular, the previews highlighted interior modelling, ground markings and other external areas such as the car park and outer buildings. More previews for the MSFS version and other platforms will be rolling out soon.

For now, check out the previews above of the upcoming Essendon Fields Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Once we have more news, we’ll be sure to share it with you.
