29Palms Releases Mykonos Airport for MSFS

29palms Mykonos Airport Lgmk Msfs (2)

Whilst 29Palms has been busy working on Contrail, the development team has also found time to create Mykonos Airport (LGMK) for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Released moments ago via the Contrail store, Mykonos Airport is an exciting destination for any flight simmer thanks to its short runway and interesting approach.

The airport is visited regularly by numerous European airlines bringing tourists from around the world to the island of Mykonos. Known for its luxury apartments and villas, the island is very scenic, especially when on the final approach. Despite the popularity, there are only 7 parking spaces which may mean you are going to be held whilst the airport clears to make space. The relatively short runway also means that often airlines traveling towards the UK have to make a tech-stop to refuel due to weight limitations.

As with other 29Plams products in the past, there are a number of features that make Mykonos really stand out. For example, the highly detailed apron is littered with objects found at the airport, whilst the markings are lifelike. Furthermore, there is a sloped runway based on real-world data and custom windsocks.

In addition to the smaller features, there has been an extensive amount of work on the terminal building itself.  The modeling has been completed to a high standard and comes with 4K PBR texturing. Finally, 29Palms has included custom boats and ships at the island’s ports and added three heliports for those wishing the explore in a chopper.

You can buy 29Plams’ Mykonos Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator now from the Contrail Store for €12,56 (excluding taxes).

Origami Studios Announces Gatwick Airport for MSFS

Origami Studios Gatwick Msfs (1)

Scenery developer Origami Studios has announced that they will be bringing their Gatwick Airport from X-Plane 11 to Microsoft Flight Simulator. The airport is being developed in close collaboration with iniBuilds and will include more advanced features than previously seen in the XPL version of the airport.

Gatwick Airport is the second busiest in the UK, and one of the busiest single-runway airports in the world. Situated in the southeast of the UK, the airport serves as a busy hub for low-cost carrier easyJet and also flagship carrier British Airways. Whilst in recent times it has reduced capacity, it still is a bustling hub of activity for leisure flights around the world.

Origami Studios are saying this is a “significant upgrade” from the original X-Plane 11 version. With certain areas now more optimal with better UV/Texture mapping, more ground details and also support for Microsoft Flight Simulator functionality. Furthermore, the layout will be corrected based on the 2020/2021 layout with the new A380 pier and construction work. In an FAQ, the team said there will be no static models (optional or otherwise) and safedocks will not be a feature as there needs to be further investigation on how to implement this.

No exact pricing details were shared. However, it’s unknown if there will be upgrading pricing for owners of the XP version. The team has said that as both products are “somewhat different,” and that they will be treated as separate products. It is heavily hinted, but not explicitly mentioned.

Origami Studios has confirmed that Gatwick Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator will release this summer on the iniBuilds Store and the Microsoft Flight Simulator Marketplace.
