Flightbeam / iBlueYonder Portland for MSFS Released

Iblueyonder Portland Airport Msfs (3)

After revealing the airport in production just a few days ago, iBlueYonder, in partnership with Flightbeam, has released Portland Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator. The airport scenery takes the international airport and faithfully recreates it into the simulator platform. This is the first iBlueYoner product for the new simulator and brings plenty of acute details into the project whilst taking advantage of the latest features from the simulator.

Portland International Airport (KPDX) is a large hub for Alaska Airlines and also serves plenty of other domestic carriers as well such as Southwest, United and more. The airport itself features 3 runways, plenty of parking and sits right next to an Ikea store which is very visible when on approach.

iBlueYonder has spent time reworking all texturing and materials so that they are fully supportive of the PBR engine within the simulator, along with optimising the modelling to ensure users get the best performance possible from the airport. The product also features native use of the various parts of the Microsoft Flight Simulator SDK and night lighting has also been full reworked to be more realistic and blend in with the simulator itself.

iBlueYonder’s Portland Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator costs $14.99. For those who have purchased the Prepar3D or X-Plane 11 version in the past, you can get 30% off by using the code KPDXMSFS on the Flightbeam website.

[Updated] Flightbeam Announces Denver International for MSFS

FB IMG 1596662191233

Updated 6th August 2020: It is confirmed that Flightbeam will release Denver International Airport on August 18th 2020 to coincide the release of Microsoft Flight Simulator. It was also confirmed that the pricing will be cheaper than the current Prepar3D versions.

Scenery developer Flightbeam has announced that they will be bringing Denver International Airport (KDEN) to the new Microsoft Flight Simulator.

As with other developers announcing products for the simulator, no other details have yet to be shared. However the previews do give off a lot of visual clues about the quality of the product to expect when it does release for the new platform.

Flightbeam is one of the most prolific scenery developers on Prepar3D and FSX (with the occasional dabble in X-Plane 11) and Denver was one of the most highly regarded of their products. What does remain to be seen is how it will compare to the hand-crafted airports included with the base flight simulator.

Denver is situated in central USA and sees a huge number of international and domestic flights to the city airport.

As always stick with FSElite for more previews from the sim in the coming days and weeks as we gear up for a release.
