XWind Studios Showcases Palmerston North Airport for MSFS

New previews for this upcoming New Zealand airport.

XWind Studios Showcases Palmerston North Airport for MSFS

Developer XWind Studios released Dunedin Airport back in August of this year and already the team is ready to preview their next airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Still in New Zealand, the developer is now bringing Palmerston North Airport (NZPM) to the sim.

This small airport is a busy hub of activity for ATR aircraft along with 737 cargo operations. It mostly serves Air New Zealand with traffic to Wellington and Auckland, with the airport having seen construction and expansion over the years thanks to its growing traffic. There is also a great general aviation hub, giving you plenty of choice when flying to and from the airport.

Ablai from XWind Studios said, “we’ve reached the back end of development with about a couple weeks left before we push a beta build out.” We have the first previews of the scenery.

XWind Studios said that they are adding a lot of attention to detail to the airport, including detailed and accurate interior modeling, 4K texturing, custom vehicles, and high-quality objects. The airport will be based on a 2023 layout. More features are to be added and will be shared in the future.

Stay tuned to FSElite as we bring you the latest.
