Scenery developer Vertical Simulations announces Norfolk Airport (KORF), for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
Norfolk is a two-runway configurated airport with its runway 5-23 (for its length) being the main stomping grounds for cargo and passenger operators. United, American, and Delta are the primary carriers visiting Norfolk airport.
The airport has been previously released by the developer for the X-Plane 11 back in May of 2019. The MSFS version is a non-direct port from the XP version. As a result, objects, materials, and lighting had to be completely rebuilt. We can expect to see a variety of custom objects that will take advantage of PBR along with PBR casting on glass, metals, and concrete textures for buildings. For those Naval enthusiasts, the developer has implemented land crafts off the departure end of Rwy 5. Furthermore, thanks to the airport layout matching 2020 charts, the user will have a pleasant experience and peace of mind when operating in and out of Norfolk.
A 10% Discount will be available for XP users upon providing an invoice from either of the stores, (X-Plane.org store, Verticalsim, Simmarket).
The developer estimates to release Norfolk sometime this week. Users should expect the price to be around $12-13 USD.
