Orbx Releases Alesund Vigra Airport

ENAL Alesund Vigra Airport is the latest Norwegian destination from Orbx developer, Finn Hansen and is designed for Prepar3D v4 and v5.

Ålesund is a scenic holiday destination and a major Norwegian hub with legacy, low-cost and charter carriers flying to destinations across Europe. Whilst most commonly served by favourites such as the A320, 737NG, CRJ, ATR and Dash-8, it is also visited by both 757s and 767s on rare occasions.

The project harnesses the latest P3D technology and features to create an ultra-detailed depiction of the airport and surrounding area. Experience beautiful over-water approaches (special care has been given to the tone and colour of the waterbody textures) or explore the many islands, harbours and inlets included in the coverage area. Many points of interest have also been modelled, including the Giske Island Bridge and the rather unusual Subsea 7 North Sea Spoolbase.

Other highlights include high-resolution 7cm ground textures that have been hand-edited across all seasons and 3D snow for the coldest months of the year. Much like other recent projects such as Burbank, Rejika and Boulder City, extra attention has been given to creating detailed unique GSE, vehicles and boats solely for this project.

Ålesund has been designed to be compatible with Global Base, Orbx Norway and OpenLC Europe with seasonal variations, custom 10m mesh, vector and terrain edits covering all potential base-scenery combinations. For users who fly with Orbx Norway, Ålesund Cityscape - a primary focus feature of the Norway Region - nestles immediately adjacent the airport coverage area.
