ORBX just announced one of their future products: Innsbruck Airport - the capital of the alps and released a huge set of amazing screenshots.

ORBX Innsbruck Airport Preview

Innsbruck is one of Austria's biggest cities with quite an impressive backdrop. The project, which is being developed by Jarrad Marshall is pack-filled with great features. It really is a massive scenery with lots of goodies for helicopter pilots. Besides the Innsbuck airport (LOWI), we will also be able to find a handful of helipads, which is always a very welcome addition. It's great to see us virtual helicopter pilots getting some love.

Topography and coverage area

  • Massive 2500 sq km of PR at 1m/60cm/30cm
  • Huge extended coverage area with full LC, 10m Holgermesh, vector roads/rail/powerlines and waterbodies.
