FlightFX Formally Announces DuPage and Pompano Airports

Flightfx Airports (1)

In our interview with FlightFX earlier last month, some of you may have noticed that they quietly confirmed that their next airports would be DuPage Airport and also Pompano Airport. We can now share a few more development screenshots of both of those with you. It’s worth noting that these are very early development shots.

DuPage Airport

Located just shy of 30 miles from downtown Chicago, DuPage Airport (KDPA)  is a small general aviation airport with four runways. Despite its reliance on general aviation traffic, the airport has two ILS approaches, a 24-hour controlled ATC tower and even a customs office.

Pompano Airport

Pompano Airport (KPMP) is situated in the city of Pompano Beach in Florida. The airport has three runways is mostly sees general aviation traffic throughout the year. A number of aviation schools can be found at the airport, meaning plenty of people get their PPLs from Pompano Airport. FlightFX will be bringing the airport to life in Microsoft Flight Simulator and said that they will include the Goodyear Blimp.

Both airports are still in development, along with another secret project. More details on all of their upcoming stuff will be revealed in due course. For now, check out our interview with Nick and the team at FlightFX or discover more about their Chicago Executive Airport on MSFS.

Update – Changed title following a spelling mistake.
