Orbx Releases Essendon Airport for X-Plane 11

Written by on October 26, 2021

Previously released for Microsoft Flight Simulator, Orbx has released their rendition of Essendon Airport (YMEN) for X-Plane 11. This specific airport is very close to the developers from Orbx as it is home to the Australian headquarters for Orbx.

Of course, this fact brings a lot of benefits during the development as the developers are very familiar with the area. From the technical side of things, the scenery has a lot to offer, from high-quality PBR textures accurately used throughout the scenery to crisp orthoimagery and fully replicated ground floor of the terminal interior.

The scenery was also developed with the assistance of Essendon Fields Airport to ensure the best accuracy resulting in the best possible experience in the simulator.

Further, the scenery also offers other features like custom static aircraft, the new Bombardier hangar which was recently opened at the airport, or a rendition of the airport surroundings, including the EF Auto Precinct and DFO retail area.

The complete feature list can be seen below in the article.

If you want to purchase the scenery, you can do so either through Orbx’s website or their client, Orbx Central. The team from Orbx has priced the scenery to a decent €14.70.
