Verticalsim Announces Omaha Eppley Airfield for XP

Continuing their pursuit of developing less well-known U.S. airfields, scenery developer Verticalsim has announced that their next X-Plane scenery project will be focussed around Omaha Eppley Airfield (KOMA).

Located in the midwestern U.S. state of Nebraska, Omaha Eppley Airfield (KOMA) is the main gateway to the city of Omaha and its surrounding area. The airport is located on the banks of the Missouri River, around 3 miles to the northeast of Omaha’s city center and is categorized as a medium hub airport by the FAA. On an interesting side note, the airport was named in honor of Eugene C. Eppley, founder of the Eppley hotel chain, who contributed a considerable amount of money to ready the then Omaha Municipal Airport for the arrival of the jet age.

Moving on from their most recent release for MSFS, renowned scenery developer Verticalsim has announced the development of this iconic midwestern hub for X-Plane 11. Although not providing a great many previews, the developer did share some initial 3D building renders and a provisional feature list. Accordingly, the scenery is set to come included with an up-to-date 2021 ground layout, 3D models and textures that make use of the latest PBR technology, as well as high-resolution photo imagery, to name but just a few.

As of now, the developer has chosen to refrain from disclosing either an official release date or an official price. We will, of course, keep you updated should additional information regarding this project become available. In the meantime, feel free to head over to the official forum post linked here.
