MK Studios releases La Guardia Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator

MK Studios has launched its highly anticipated rendition of La Guardia Airport (KLGA), bringing to Microsoft Flight Simulator one of the most crucial hubs in the United States. Located just a few miles from the bustling heart of Manhattan, La Guardia Airport is not only a gateway for millions of travelers but also a vital piece of aviation infrastructure serving as a hub for major airlines like Delta and American Airlines.

MK Studios’ version of La Guardia promises to be the best rendition of this airport for MSFS yet. It includes meticulously detailed terminal interiors that provide a realistic feel as users navigate through the gates, and updated construction and ground layouts reflect the latest changes and developments at the airport.

The scenery also boasts handcrafted 3D models of buildings, jetways, and various airport facilities. The ground textures are based on custom 30cm/pixel satellite imagery, while elevation data is derived from high-quality LiDAR scans. These features should accurately portray the runway and apron profiles as well as the intricate details of the ground surfaces.
