Stellenbosch and Fisantekraal Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 Released

It is with pleasure that we announce the release of two small airports for Microsoft Flight Simulator: Stellenbosch and Fisantekraal!

Both airports have been designed to be as close to the real airport as possible and as always, we have added PBR Texturing to all the buildings!

We took great care in making sure that the runway at Stellenbosch airport is at an incline as in real life. This was not easy to do, but we nevertheless managed to get it remarkably close to the real one.

The one unmissable feature of Fisantekraal Airport are those old army concrete runways, and we got the texturing of them exactly right as in real life! We used different textures on the runway, taxiways and in-between to make it easier to spot the runways and taxiways at a distance.

Screen shots of these airports are available on the buttons below.

Microsoft Flight Simulator Airport Updates

We have updated our Microsoft Flight Simulator airports with Airport Services and Living World configurations.

This update will be most noticeable at the smaller airfields where your aircraft will no longer be swamped by service personnel looking for work to do! In fact, we have limited the service at parking areas to Medium General Aviation Parking bays and higher. Small General Aviation Parking Bays will no longer be services at all. This is in line with the real world.

When you land at Zebula Airport, there will be no one there to meet you, which is exactly the way it should be! The same with Saldanha and Virginia. These airports are not big enough for these types of services.

Airports like Richards Bay is different. There you have Small General Aviation Parking and Medium General Aviation Parking. The Medium Parking Bays are used by the commercial flights to the airport and those parking bays will have services. The Small General Aviation Parking Bays does not have any service, which is again as it should be. That is the one place you do not want any people around your aircraft!

We have updated the following airports with these services.

  • Port Elizabeth Airport V3.6.6
  • Richards Bay Airport V1.0.8
  • Saldanha Airport V1.0.7
  • Sishen Airport V1.0.1
  • Virginia Airport V1.4.8
  • Zebula Airport V1.2.7

You can download these from your Account Downloads page once you have logged into your account.

Wonderboom Airport has already been updated with these features before release. We have no plans to update Johannesburg International as we have found that the default services provided by Microsoft Flight Simulator at the airport is sufficient for now.

Saldanha-Vredenbrug Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 Released

We are pleased to announce the release of Saldanha-Vredenbrug Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020!

We are releasing the smaller airports first to gain experience designing scenery for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020. This is our second airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 and we are already pushing the boundaries of what can be done! The night lighting is now much better than anything we have done before!

We are going to do two more smaller airports before we start with the medium sized airports and we are considering Virginia and Richards Bay airports as our next two releases. We are getting better at the design process for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, but it still takes time to learn all the new features!

As always, we are offering upgrade discounts to those who have previous versions of this airport. To claim your discount, please make sure that you are logged on to our website before you make your purchase.
