One Alaska’s most stunning airports is making its way to Microsoft Flight Simulator. Orbx announced the imminent release of PADU Unalaska Airport, a creation of developer Matteo Venanziani, who also did Burbank, Skiathos and Van Nuys for MSFS.
Also known as Dutch Arbor Airport (introduce mandatory Deadliest Catch reference here), PADU is located in a striking setting in Alaska’s Aleutian Islands. A short runway bordered on both ends by the ocean, coupled with regular rough weather, make for some of the most challenging conditions a pilot can find, as testified by a flight cancellation rate of about 20%!
Unalaska Airport deserves to be represented in MSFS with a custom scenery that matches the impressive real-world scenario. That’s what Matteo and Orbx are trying to attempt with this upcoming add-on, which will overhaul not only the airport itself, but also the entire town and it’s nearby landmarks.
The first product images shared by Orbx speak for themselves. Dutch Harbor will become a simple stunning place to fly and a real test to pilot’s skills, especially in rough weather. With beautiful views and a detailed and realistic scenery, simmers are in for a treat with this upcoming new scenery from Orbx!
PADU Unalaska Airport should be out soon for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Stay tuned for further news about the release!
