Frank Dainese and Fabio Bellini has today confirmed that their next project, 3D Everest Park will be released on December 1st 2018. Situated on the tallest mountain on the planet means you won’t be short of challenging approaches, lush views and plenty of fun scenarios to try out at Lukla Airport.
Lukla Airport is deemed one of the most challenging airports in the world thanks to it’s cliff-edge terrain, short runway and huge change in slope during take off or landing. The developers are promising a highly detailed and realistic recreation of the airport and surrounding area. There will be 3D vegetation and houses all around the airports. Secondary airport Syangboche (VNSB) will also be included in the package.
Frank and Fabio went onto to say that they chose to produce their own ground imagery and mesh due to copyright and cost issues. However, they feel confident that they have reconstructed the area as a true representation so pilots will get the immersive experience.
Whilst the release date of December 1st 2018 seems pretty firm, no price has yet to be set. We’ll continue to watch and will let you know. You can read more on the X-Plane.org forums.
