As a surprise announcement, Orbx has announced they are bringing Bella Coola Airport (CYBD) to Microsoft Flight Simulator. The team described the airport as having “inspiring scenic” views on the approach, whilst being surrounded by a lush valley near the Bella Coola River. The airport itself sees only flights from Pacific Coastal Airlines to Vancouver but often frequented by private pilots and helicopter pilots looking to explore the wilderness and alpine peaks.
All of the texture work is of the usual Orbx quality and is complete with PBR materials applied for a more realistic effect. Each of the airport’s buildings, hangers, cafes and equipment have been hand-crafted. Furthermore, the airport product extends beyond the main airport fence and includes various buildings, objects and structures.
The airport looks close to release, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated on when it is out. You can also keep an eye on the product page for when the “buy now” button eventually appears.
- Airport and surrounding buildings have been hand-crafted with incredible detail and realism
- PBR textures throughout
- High-res custom ground poly
- True to life details, including vehicles, helipads, vegetation, and even a local bear
