Introducing NZWR Whangarei Airport


Recommended Posts

Such great news to hear!! So glad that NZNI will have a new airport to fly to and an incredible looking one at that. Great work Alex, really looking forward to its release! I am loving the S-76 in the heliport, it looks great!!

 

Anyone interested in additional NZ scenery, check out Godzone Virtual Flight (http://windowlight.co.nz/godzoneWP/) They are hard at work also and specialise in NZ!

Cozy little airport and huge surroundings. I love it. With NZ being my favourit FTX regions this made my day. You can never have too many NZ airports.

Wonderful details.

OH HAPPY MONDAY for all the ORBX Minions around the globe!   This is a piece of history here, as we have, at long last, reached the North Island Region with a proper airport!  

 

Really a perfect location to choose, guys, well done!
 

The shots are stunning.  Quality looks off the charts, even for Alex G.  The river estuary there looks incredible, as do all the POI objects.  A lot of extra scenery, this is not just an airport or even a town but from the looks here, it is a sizeable area - will be another playground for rotor-heads.  I am loving this.

 

Why can't all Mondays start like this?  I think I will go purchase a few lotto tickets today.

This is looking stunning! Well chosen location indeed. Congratulations Alex on your outstanding work. You keep on adding wonders to the ORBX world! I hope too that someday we will see Donegal airport in Ireland which has a similar beautiful approach: https://www.independent.ie/life/travel/travel-news/donegal-airport-voted-second-most-scenic-landing-on-earth-35656392.html

Finally a NZ airport again!! Oh please some more of them! I never bought NZNI and NZSI is fading away at my system because of the lack of good quality airports.. Now this could be a new start maybe? And as soon as there is FB Auckland there will be a place that connects the dots.

 

Very nice decision!

Will you please stop this nonsense. I keep telling my wife I don't need any more scenery, then you pull something like this.. plus I am saving for Aus when it comes out next year.

Only jokin' lads.. Magic,  Bring it on.

Exactly the same direction I needed to tell my wife, too. But some things we can´t resist (and why should we?)...

Very impressive level of detail throughout.

For example, referring to the shot labelled "NZWR Landside Parking area", the white car on the right is a Honda, I can pick the badge & the tail lights look correct - no longer are cars rectangular blobs! 

Well done. A must have for NZ flying.

Day 1 purchase for me. Could have been a little bigger coverage photoreal area or perhaps I am just getting used to airport in the FTX Global range like Innsbruck or all the latest talk about The Netherlands etc. Still amazing though :)

 

 

The coverage is much smaller than Innsbruck for sure, the overview image minimizes the township area due to the viewing angle and some lens distortion. I'll post a KML that gives a clearer picture later, but for comparison the photoreal area is roughly the same size as KMRY, KRDD, and PAKT.

The helicopter playground is a really big part of this project, there are quite a few rescue ops that can be carried out :)

Didn't see this till now.  When?  Holy cow this and the Netherlands are Instant buys!  Can't wait as it looks like 64 bit is making things look better all the time!

 

Hopefully by the start of the holiday season if all testing and final development goes according to plan.

Those are some of our newest car models, I have scattered them around the highest detail areas, you'll see more than a handful at Whangarei.

That's a great selection! Beautiful airport, located in a gorgeous area.

Question: Will Runway lead-in lights system be simulated for night-time approaches? 

That will be fantastic.

 

The lead-in lights in the bay are present, with flashing lights at night. 

 

Thanks for looking everyone, this has been a long project and it is well worth it hearing your feedback so far!

Absolutely perfect Alex, very well done.

What  a wonderful array of teasing views too.

So good to see an airport in the Antipodes after all this while and I do understand why!

Same here Jack, strange isn't it.

Yeah, a Honda Civic no less.

Call them prawn cars as those red tail light look like cooked prawns when lit up at night.:blink::wacko::lol:
