High-quality scenery developer Flightbeam Studios has released their new airport for MSFS: KIAD – Washington Dulles International Airport. It’s another major US airport from the studio, after the release of Portland and Dever’s Airports.
KIAD comes to the new Microsoft Flight Simulator in the usual quality we expect from Flightbeam. They are some of the best on the business and each scenery is brimming with details. Even though this new version is based on the previous iteration for P3D, it’s in fact a massive improvement in the number of upgrades and visual details.
Flightbeam took care to not only develop the airport scenery with utmost respect for a realistic experience, but also included additional features outside the airport, like important landmarks (the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum is one example), and a seamless integration with the surrounding area.
Here are the main features:
- Custom PBR materials throughout entire airport
- Detailed FBO for small aircraft operations
- Realistic night lighting, with hand placed, illuminated floodlights and glows
- Custom animated Flightbeam jetways with accurate placement and hood animation
- Custom static aircraft in various ramp parking positions (Fedex, United)
- A stunning number of clutter objects and vehicles throughout airport
- Sloped and uneven runways with hand-painted exit marks
- Includes various points of interest, including the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum
- Custom elevation and terraforming on roadways
- Detailed Airport roadways
- Custom taxiway signs
- Detailed airport surroundings
- LOD-optimized for best performance
Flightbeam’s KIAD is now available for $19.99, and existing owners of the P3D version are eligible to a nice 30% discount on this new version.
