On the X-Plane.org forums, RIM&Company announced their latest project, Pittsburgh International Airport for X-Plane 11. Pittsburgh International Airport is the primary airport for the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and was a hub for US Airways until 2004. In 2018, Pittsburgh International Airport served over 9.6 million passengers. Airlines such as American, Delta, Southwest, British Airways, and Condor fly to destinations in the United States, Central America, Canada, and Europe. Pittsburgh International Airport has 4 runways, the longest is 11,500 feet or 3,505 meters, the shortest is the crosswind runway of 14/32 that measures 8,101 feet or 2,469 meters.
Rimco Pittsburgh International is in beta testing and is expected to release later this week or early next week and boasts many features. Pittsburgh quite literally translates to “Forestland of Penn”, Rimco has taken this to heart and has placed hundreds of trees in their package. The terminal has been modeled in good detail using PBR textures, various other airport buildings and infrastructure have also been accurately modeled. Included is the SAM plugin for the jetways, gangways, and Safedock. The GroundTraffic Plugin for X-Plane 11 has been utilized to add moving vehicle traffic around the airport as well. Rimco states that, “the price tag will be around $19-21” and will be available at the X.Plane.org store.
