CanadianFlightSimStudios has released Prince Rupert Digby Island Airport for MSFS. This scenery is designed to showcase the unique terrain and features of the actual airport, located in the Pacific Northwest region of British Columbia, Canada.
Prince Rupert Digby Island Airport (CYPR) is a regional airport that primarily serves the community of Prince Rupert and the surrounding area. It is located on Digby Island, which is located across the harbor from the city of Prince Rupert. The airport has a single runway and is served by a few airlines, including Air Canada Express and Central Mountain Air, which provide flights to Vancouver and other destinations in British Columbia.
The airport’s location in the Pacific Northwest region of British Columbia offers breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and ocean. CanadianFlightSimStudios has tried to capture this beauty with many hand-placed details and finely crafted models that look to accurately showcase the airport and surrounding area.
The developers say the airport models are fully custom and true to life, ensuring that the layout is accurate in accordance with the real-world location. Additionally, this airport makes use of PBR textures and HDR lighting, which create realistic lighting and shadow effects that add to the overall immersion of the scenery.
In addition to the airport models, CanadianFlightSimStudios also includes custom vegetation models and usage of dynamic weather and seasonal effects, which change the appearance of the airport and surrounding area based on the current weather and time of year.
Other features of this scenery include accurate nearby landmarks, such as a hospital and helipad, as well as nearby bulk and container ports.
Prince Rupert Digby Island Airport is available now from Orbx, priced at just $8.68 | €8,14 | £7.13.
