Fly2High has released a new airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator. This time, the developer has created a custom rendition of Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport (KLBB), a small commercial airport in Texas, United States.
Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport, located five miles north of Lubbock in Lubbock County, has a history dating back to 1937 when it opened as South Plains Airport. Renamed in 2004 in honor of former Texas Governor Preston E. Smith, a Texas Tech University alumnus, the airport has evolved from a military training base during World War II to a modern civil airport. It’s currently the eighth-busiest airport in Texas, primarily serving the South Plains region.
In Microsoft Flight Simulator, pilots can experience flights operated by major airlines like American Airlines, American Eagle, Southwest Airlines, and United Express. The airport’s busiest route is to Dallas Love Field, followed by Dallas-Fort Worth and Denver. For cargo operations, the airport serves as a hub for FedEx and UPS, connecting various cities in the South Plains.
Fly2High’s version of Lubbock Airport promises a high-fidelity virtual scenery for simmers to immerse themselves in the simulator. The scenery features hand-made ground textures, custom night lighting, performance-friendly optimization, and detailed models of airport buildings, objects, and surroundings.
Available for approximately $15.00 at the iniBuilds Store, this scenery marks Fly2High’s eighth project for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
