Pilot Plus releases Swansea Airport for MSFS

Pilot Plus has released Swansea Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator, available now via Orbx for £10.65 | €12,17 | $13.18.

The small airport, located just a few miles north of the rugged Welsh coastline, has two runways and is predominantly home to privately owned aircraft and helicopters, although it has recently announced that it will be launching scheduled passenger services later this year.

Pilot Plus has recreated the airport in significant detail, with high-resolution PBR implementation, up-to-date ground textures, accurate night lighting, rain effects on windows, and full internal modelling of the control tower, cafe, and accompanying buildings.

The development team was provided a tour of the airport to collect reference material ahead of its development, Pilot Plus said.

It uses approximately 2.25 GB of space, and follows other releases of UK airports from Pilot Plus, including London Biggin Hill, Bristol, London Oxford, and London Southend.


As we have come to expect from Pilot Plus, the quality of this airport looks outstanding, with high levels of detail and sharp texturing.

Its location on the Welsh coastline makes it the ideal base for exploring the nearby cliffs to the south, or the hills and mountains of Brecon Beacons national park to the north.
