New Sardinian Destination for Microsoft Flight Simulator

Located on the idyllic Mediterranean island of Sardinia, Olbia Costa Smeralda encompasses both the airport as well as the surrounding city and coastal approaches. As a popular Italian holiday destination, the airport sees a mix of airliner, corporate and GA traffic, as well as being a home base for the aerial firefighting waterbomber fleet.

Using the latest MSFS SDK updates, this airport is one of Orbx's very first to integrate customised animated jetways, as well as a custom ground polygons (projected mesh). All textures have been redone, with full PBR (Physically Based Rendering) and higher resolution artwork utilised throughout. Dozens of landmarks lie waiting to be explored, including several new easter eggs not previously included in the original P3D release. All-new GSE and static aircraft types have been added to the existing fleet for the MSFS version, as well as crisp custom aerial imagery for the airport environment. Careful attention has been given to the apron markings, sloping runway and detailed vegetation placement, as well as improved coastline and rockwork along the harbour. Utilizing innovative night lighting techniques, custom wig-wag and dynamic taxiway lighting complement the comprehensive mix of apron, terminal and runway effects.

A complete airport & city package, Olbia Costa Smeralda is a charming scenery that perfectly encapsulates this picturesque Mediterranean holiday city.]
