LatinVFR is back to airport releases for Microsoft Flight Simulator, following a detour into aircraft creation with the A321 and A319. Today, LatinVFR released a new US airport, KBWI, which serves the Baltimore/Washington metropolitan area.
KBWI is one of the three major airports serving this area, along with Washington Dulles and Ronal Reagan airports. It’s a base for Southwest Airlines, which flies to a huge number of domestic destinations (and a few international ones too). For simmers who like to fly the PMDG 737, there are a lot of routes available to and from KBWI which can be replicated in the simulator.
LatinVFR says this is a handcrafted scenery that uses detailed PBR textures and accurate ground markings that reflect the current situation in the airport. Besides, they used a parallax effect on some buildings to give an impression of depth, a nice intermediate solution between flat windows and fully-modeled terminal interiors.
LatinVFR also promises realistic night lighting in the airport, for a more authentic environment when flying after dusk. In the end, the team hopes to significantly enhance the default scenery of Baltimore/Washington International Airport, while creating plenty of opportunities for Southwest Airlines pilots to fly a variety of real-world routes.
LatinVFR’s Baltimore-Washington Airport (KBWI) for MSFS is now available directly from the developer’s website, priced at $16.99. Existing owners of the P3D version are eligible to a discount: just use promo code KBWIMSFS at checkout!
