Turbulent Designs have really been on a roll lately - now we have two airports coming to OrbxDirect from the British scenery veterans: KGPI Glacier Park International Airport exclusively for P3Dv4 and MBS International Airport for FSX and all versions of P3D, nearly the entirety of which has been custom modelled!
MBS International Airport
MBS International Airport for FSX and P3D is the most feature rich and detailed Turbulent airport to date. The airport serves the cities of Midland, Bay City and Saginaw in Freeland County, Michigan. It’s situated 100nm north west of Detroit and approximately 200nm from both Toronto and Chicago.
MBS is a great airport for a balance between commercial flying and general aviation. It’s 8000ft primary runway serves a selection of commercial aircraft in the real world, which operate out of the new passenger terminal. On the other side of the 6000ft secondary runway you can find a range of service hangers next to the general aviation and corporate jet apron. General aviation pilots can also use an isolated WWII runway, which provides a unique challenge.
The passenger terminal features a fully modelled interior, accurate to real world blueprints, allowing you to walk through and explore as a passenger. As a pilot parked at one of it’s 6 gates you can look through the terminal windows and see every detail inside the building. The jetways are fully integrated with SODE, which allows command of the docking and undocking procedure. Over on the corporate jet apron is another highly detailed interior of one of the main hangers. Pilots can choose to start or end their flight from inside this hanger.
A range of brand new HD service vehicles, cars and trucks have been placed around this airport. Each of these new vehicles has been meticulously developed, using on site photographs as reference. Each new vehicle has a cab interior and transparent glass, adding a new level of depth and immersion.
Runways, taxiways and apron surfaces are represented with high definition textures based on real world surface photography, providing an unrivalled level of visual realism while taxiing around the airport. Dense population of RealFlora in use at MBS provides a realistic variety of grasses and ground plants across the airport, particularly delivering a very convincing feel of overgrowth at the abandoned section of the WWII runway.
MBS airport sits in a rural expanse of fertile land, surrounded by farms and small holdings, this scenery perfectly recreates these visually recognizable landmarks in immense detail. Individually modelled farms with grain silos, water towers, wind generators and barns surround the airport, providing a huge amount of realism on approach and departure.

KGPI Glacier Park International Airport
