London Heathrow Airport is now available for Microsoft Flight Simulator
Following on a short preview earlier this month, iniScene has now released its re-creation of the UK’s largest airport. EGLL Heathrow Airport is now available for Microsoft Flight Simulator, ready to handle your long-haul flights across the world.
Heathrow is a large infrastructure that would always be a handful for any developer. It seems iniScene took this task to heart, with a long list of features that include over 80 custom buildings, over 10.000 car models, custom signs, and much more.
Some of Heathrow’s most notable points of interest have also been included, like the famous British Airways G-BOAB Concorde or the Emirates A380 roundabout. Furthermore, animated elements have been added across the scenery, such as radio towers and construction cranes.
There’s a lot to unpack in Heathrow, as one of the largest and busiest airports in the world. With plenty of routes to almost every country on the planet, serviced by the world’s largest airlines and most popular jetliners, MSFS simmers will have a variety of opportunities to re-create these real-world operations.
Heathrow Airport is iniScene’s largest project to date, and it’s now available for £17.99. Currently PC-only, it should be available soon for Xbox pilots through the MSFS Marketplace.
