FSElite Exclusive: MK-Studios Confirms Helsinki on Development Roadmap

Helsinki Airport

Recently, scenery developer MK-Studios confirmed that their development roadmap is in full swing for 2020 and beyond. Part of that roadmap also took into account a recent poll from the community, which confirmed that Sevilla is in development.

In the same post, MK-Studios also shared that there could also be another surprise on the cards for another airport development. We are pleased to exclusively bring you the news that Helsinki Airport (EFHK) is also in the works.

Helsinki Airport is one of the busiest airports in the Northerb Hemisphere with over 21 million passengers passing through each year. It’s the main hub for Finnair, and sees traffic to other airlines such as Norwegian Air Shuttle and many more.

This is a pre-development announcement and should be noted that this airport will only come after all other projects are completed. Other airports currently being worked on by the team include Keflavik and Points Delgada.

If we get any further news (but don’t expect any for a while on this airport), we’ll let you know.

MK-Studios 2020 Roadmap – Keflavik, Rome and More

Mk Studios 2020 Roadmap (3)

Scenery developer MK-Studios released a statement about their 2020 plans. The plans include to release Keflavik, Rome, Palma De Mallorca and Tenerife very soon, along with some other surprises throughout the year. In the post on Facebook, Mateusz Stabryla, CEO of MK-Studios, gave a long statement, which we’ll summarise down below.

First up, the release of Tenerife North (GCXO) is not far off. With lots of work ongoing to ensure that the airport is performance friendly, the team are now confident that they can provide a great product without any serious impact on the frame rate. There will be plenty of custom building work, PBR materials and much more. The team are about to start beta testing with a release scheduled for Q1 on Prepar3D v4.5 and higher.

The next big airport on the plate for the developers is Keflavik (BIKF). An airport many people are excited for and you will be pleased to hear that the modelling and texture work is now finished. Thanks to support from pilots, the airport will include the latest apron layout and building state. Keflavik will include PBR materials, realistic snow effects and more. New previews coming soon. Whilst the release date is subject to change, the aim is to release in Q1 of 2020.

Another airport in the works, but less spoken about yet, is Palma De Mallorca (LEPA). The Spanish Island airport will feature PBR materials. The current state of the airport is that modelling is about to be finished before preparing for export in preparation for testing. A Q2 release is scheduled and will release for Prepar3D v4.5 and higher.

Rome Fiumicino is also in development, but full-time development won’t start until the release of Palma De Mallorca. A Q4 release is currently planned for Prepar3D v4.5 and higher.

A new airport announced from MK-Studios is Ponta Delgada (LPPD). Once Keflavik is released, development work will start on the small island airport. Currently, the plan is to release in Q3.

One of MK-Studios’ first airports, Fuerteventura, will be seeing an all-new version at the end of the year. The new version will be full redone with PBR implementation and other exciting features. No further details were shared at this time.

The final new airport announced is Donegal Airport (EIDL). MK-Studios said, “we couldn’t imagine a better place to hop with [an] ATR from Dublin.”

Finally, the team announced that some updates for existing products will also be made including another update for Dublin, Tenerife Vol. 1 V2 and also for Lisbon.

MK-Studios released a wealth of products during 2019, including a free update for Tenerife users, a big free update on Lisbon and of course, Dublin Airport. You can read our review on Dublin Airport here. You can follow MK-Studios on Facebook to stay updated.
