MK-Studios Releases Vagar Airport for MSFS

EKVG Vagar Airport Msfs 1

MK-Studios continues to pump scenery out for Microsoft Flight Simulator. This time, the team has released Vagar Airport (EKVG) for the simulator.

Being surrounded by hills and portraying unpredictable, highly-changing weather conditions all year round and a 1799 meter long runway accompanied by a complicated approach, Vágar makes way for a challenging arrival with no room for error at all.

The airport product comes with satellite imagery for the airport, whilst the airport terminal has been crafted with 2K texturing. The terrain mesh included also enables a realistic profile on the 5,906ft runway. Alongside the outside details, MK-Studios has also included a simplified terminal interior.

You can pick up Vagar Airport now from OrbxDirect for $14.95 AUD (US$11.11 | €9,57 | £8.10) or on simMarket for €9.99.

Further Info and Previews for Orbx’s Upcoming Essendon Airport for P3D, MSFS and XPL

YMEN Essendon Airport Orbx Msfs 01

Orbx originally announced that they would be bringing Essendon Airport to Prepar3D, Microsoft Flight Simulator and X-Plane back in August, but have been quiet since. However, a new forum thread has appeared on their site giving us a much deeper look into the product, along with all-new previews.

Orbx has developed Essendon Airport as part of the airport’s centenarian birthday celebrations. Essendon Fields Airport started initially as Melbourne’s main airport but was overtaken by the larger Melbourne International Airport. That said, Essendon Fields still serves as an important location for the city with numerous corporate jets still flying in and out of the airport. The airport also serves as an important base for numerous flying clubs for those looking to get their PPL and other licences.

Not only has Orbx taken extreme care and attention in bringing the airport to life, they have also recreated many parts of the interior modelling, including Orbx’s very own offices. Other features include high-quality PBR texturing, crisp orthimagery, static objects throughout and also accurate runway profiles. Orbx was assisted by Essendon Fields Airport to help create this realistic rendition of the airport.

Finally, we know that Essendon Airport will release first for Microsoft Flight Simulator this coming weekend. The Prepar3D and X-Plane 11 versions will follow afterwards. It’s also worth noting that customers who already own YMEN Essendon v1 for FSX/P3D will be able to get 20% off the new version of the airport. The product page is also online if you wish to check that out.
