NZGS Gisborne Airport coming soon to FSX/P3D

Recommended Posts

Interesting choice.

Whangerei to Gisborne - overfly the Central Plateau  down to Turangi & you have some spectacular scenery, (3 volcanoes), on the way.

It is also very rugged to the West of Gisborne.

Looking forward to this one.

Very cozy airport.

Goes to show that you can never have too many NZ airports.

Did Finni invest much in Bitcoins? :lol:

Love this choice, a very interesting project.  Finni seems to have an affinity for non-standard runways; either they are sloped or they have ground traffic crossing them.

that train looks way to small compared to the aircraft

 

Not really, looks about right. It's just not pulling a tender.

I'm definitely looking forward to this addition, as I'm currently flying around the Orbx New Zealand scenery now. Although, I flew around the north island and am now at the south island, I'll fly north again as soon as this is released. Thanks for the previews, love the train. :)

One of those airports I visit a lot when flying in NZNI, now going to be even better.

I like the steam engine too, very well depicted and a wonderful inclusion.:)

Gisborne was where I was born and grew up, I still get up there from time to time and in my line of work I'm involved in the design of new PBN procedures in and out of Gisborne. It will be fantastic to have this airport and cityscape available in sim!

Well that was a pleasant shot out of the blue. Great stuff and most appreciated. It would also be good

to get a better than generic Palmerston North airport, one of the busiest in the country with regular

ATR72 & Q300 aircraft and the Massey School of aviation with 14 aircraft also 2 Boeing 737 freighters

every night. The excellent ORBX AI package already does a great job. So Please, Please guys please

continue to add to the New Zealand experience.

Hi Noel,

 

Yes, the train is animated, so you will need to wait for it before you takeoff or land ;).

 

Cheers,

Very happy about it. I do have and enjoy (ENNO Notodden and ENHF Hammerfest)

 

It is good to have another airport for NZ, the pictures look incredible.

YEAH! More NZ!! Keep it coming!

As a suggestion for a next NZ airport; NZAP Taupo Airport (and then please include Lake Taupo and Tongariro in photoreal). Great little airport with magnificent scenery. Did a tandem skydive from 15.000ft from that airport many many years ago.

Thank you thank you thank you, I can now Fly in and out of My home town I cannot wait, Will be getting as soon as released.

Just thought last week when flying back home I Wish someone would do Gisborne the train is enough to make it alone yet the Area so much fun to learn in  too fly in, By the looks the training areas I used back in the late 90s early 2000 Wainui and patutahi.

"NEWS FLASH" the NZ government announced yesterday that there will be a 5.5 million dollar

upgrade of Gisborne airport, including a complete rebuild of the terminal.

ORBX have just ensured that we don't lose a piece of our unique history.

Bring it on guys!

Stunning job, Finni.

 

Speaking of strange runways. Gibraltar comes to mind too, with car traffic running across the runway.

 

Then there is another strange airport (the location eludes me) that gets flooded by the sea. That is something i have seen on youtube.

You may be thinking of Barra Airport, Scotland?

Absolutely awesome looking! Can't wait! I've always wondered why there weren't more NZ airports developed for those two top notch OrbX regions. Great to see another new Kiwi airport being added to the OrbX product line. :)

Brilliant news. I'm so happy that my home airport is receiving the Orbx treatment. smile.png Just in case people get the wrong idea about the hospital heliport though, it is on the ground between the road outside the hospital and the Emergency Department - it isn't "on top": of anything. :P It's all true about the railway line too ... AND believe it or not, trains have right of way!!
