Pacific Islands Simulation has just announced the release of a major new airport in the United States. This time the team has traveled to Utah to bring us a detailed rendition of the busiest airport in the state, KSLC Salt Lake City International Airport.
Situated approximately 4 miles west of Downtown Salt Lake City, Utah, KSLC serves as a major hub for Delta Air Lines, boasting a staggering 343 scheduled nonstop airline departures per day to 93 cities across North America and Europe. The airport is also notable for its high ranking in on-time departures and arrivals, as well as for having the fewest flight cancellations among major US airports.
The developers say that this latest addition to their MSFS lineup has been meticulously created to accurately reflect the current airport layout, featuring an exact replica of the terminal, concourses, hangars, towers, freight buildings, General Aviation FBOs, and even the ongoing redevelopment program.
KSLC features custom animated jetways, sharp PBR textures, a Visual Docking Guidance System (VDGS), and high-resolution orthoimagery that covers the entire airport. Tire markings on runways, taxiways, and aprons add a realistic touch, and two new overnight parking areas were added to the midfield and next to runway 34R.
The designers have also hand-placed autogen to align with the actual airport layout and added new taxiways between and around the concourses.
