Halifax Stanfield International Airport Released for MSFS; P3D Version Coming Summer

CYHZ Halifax Airport Cyhz (1)

If you need another airport in Canada to fly to, then FSimStudios and Airfield Canada have your back. Dubbed as an “early adopter” release, Halifax Stanfield International (CYHZ) for Microsoft Flight Simulator can be yours now. Serving as the main airport in the region, the airport sees over 4 million passengers a year from over 80,000 aircraft movements. In fact, it is Canada’s eighth-largest airport and serves a number of destinations in and around the country. Popular routes include Toronto, St. Johns, Newark, Orlando, London and Cancun. As you can see, there are a lot of choices when it comes to where you can travel from the airport.

FSimStudios has teamed up with Airfield Canada to bring the airport to life. They both describe this as the most “detailed representation” of the airport created yet, with extremely detailed modelling for the terminal buildings including interior modelling. Furthermore, there is plenty of use of 4K PBR texturing, custom aerial ortho and custom ground polygons all around the airport product. Native rain and snow effects impact the airport’s visuals, whilst the native vegetation help to bring the airport to life. Finally, the team has included static commercial and GA aircraft, jetways and also worked to blend the airport with the nearby scenery for a seamless experience.

Whilst the focus of this product is on the Microsoft Flight Simulator version of the product, the team said that a Prepar3D version of Halifax Stanfield International Airport will release this summer. Those who do buy the MSFS version will get a discount on the P3D version.

Right now, Halifax Stanfield International Airport is only available through the FSimStudios store, but will soon be made available at Orbx, simMarket and other stores later this week. FSimStudios did confirm there will be no license transfers when buying the product on the FSimStudios website.

It’s not clear what “early adopter” means as there’s no detail on the product page. All the same, you can buy the airport right now for $19.50 USD.

Fsimstudios Vancouver Airport Msfs (13)

Developer FSimStudios has shared an extensive update for its upcoming version of Vancouver International Airport for both Microsoft Flight Simulator and Prepar3D v4/v5. The post was shared on Facebook and covers everything from features, pricing and the release date.

Firstly, the team wanted to highlight the features which would be coming to the scenery product upon release. The Prepar3D version will feature 178 square KM of imagery which includes downtown Vancouver with custom-made buildings. Furthermore, the airport has been designed and modelled on the current layout as recent as August 2020, to give simmers the most up-to-date version of the airport possible.

The development team is ensuring that all of the details will be there for simmers including PBR texturing, native to both P3D and MSFS, along with seasonal aerial imagery and numerous landmarks such as the local shopping outlets and even the bridges that span the Fraser River.

FSimStudios plans to release Vancouver International Airport for Prepar3D v4/v5 on October 31st 2020, with the Microsoft Flight Simulator release following two-weeks afterwards.

To try and make things as easy as possible for simmers, FSimStudios are releasing the Prepar3D version for $25 USD. This will also include a copy of the airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator. That said, if people are only wanting the Microsoft Flight Simulator version, you will be able to buy it for $11.00 USD. Presumably, this will be made available through multiple stores including OrbxDirect.

As we get closer to the October 31st release date, we’re sure more previews for the airport will be released. In related news, FSDreamTeam released an upgraded FSX port of Vancouver International Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
