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