KVNY Van Nuys Airport By Orbx Released for MSFS

107 Da3a06b1d1a38ab0f93b04480d6254db

Following on from the announcement earlier this month, Orbx has released KVNY Van Nuys Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Developed by Matteo Veneziani, the world’s busiest general aviation airport has come to life in the simulator.

Located in the Van Nuys neighbourhood in the Los Angeles metropolitan area, Van Nuys Airport (KVNY) is considered one of the busiest general aviation airports in the world, averaging about 230’000 takeoffs and landings on a good year. Although not seeing any commercial operations, the airport plays host to many news, medical & tour helicopter operators, many of which are also based at the airfield.

With Van Nuys being located near Hollywood, it comes as no surprise that the field has been featured repeatedly in cinematographic displays, most prominent among which was its display in the historical and monumental flic Casablanca (1942) and, more recently, in the well-known action movie Executive Decision (1996).

The scenery makes use of the latest MSFS SDK features. It comes included with, among others, high-resolution PBR textures used throughout, new unique & GSE static aircraft types, as well as carefully crafted recreations of the 94th Aero Squadron Restaurant, the Van Nuys Airport Observation Area, The Park VNY, Los Angeles Fire Dept. and Airtel Plaza Hotel.

You can buy KVNY Van Nuys Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator now from OrbxDirect for $22.72 AUD (approximately US$17.03 | €14,34 | £12.32).
