Flightbeam NZWN - Wellington International Airport

Post by SammyH » Sat Jun 09, 2018 10:00 am

Flightbeam Studios is proud to announce the development of Wellington International Airport (NZWN). Situated in the middle of one of the most scenic countries in the world, NZWN will aim to please a wide variety of sim pilots. Both approach and departure provide stunning views along with weather challenges at this single runway airport. Despite its small size, NZWN pushes through over 6 million passengers a year and is the third busiest airport in the region.

This airport will surpass our previous work in terms of detail modeling to terminals, and will also provide a stunning and unsurpassed amount of custom, configurable airport clutter around the gate areas. Surrounding the airport will be a large region with custom ground imagery and buildings, extending throughout the whole Wellington peninsula.

Look for NZWN release this year in 2018!

Given I am an absolute NZ fan this is great news. And yes, the preview shots look superb.

Kind regards, Michael

Best of luck with it Amir. Too region-centric for me. First FB airport I won't be purchasing, zero interest. This is great for AU/NZ folks though.

Finally a good (although this looks amazing) rendition of my home airport. Screenshots look amazing, almost exactly like the real thing! Can’t wait to fly this, although, I have mostly moved to X-Plane, so would you ever move this to X-Plane in future?

Looking forward to this as well. I am a local Wellingtonian so great to see our airport get a revamp, it is an awesome airport with a lot of winds and beautiful scenery, also the best city in the world. The perfect destination for Flight Sim

If you're not going to purchase it then please keep that to yourself, I am sure there will be other people around the world who will purchase it.

Great work Flightbeam

BUY! BUY! BUY!

Also one more thing: I would very highly recommend you guys start branching out to X-Plane, as NZWN & NZAA are relatively small airports, and there are tools like FSX2XPlane so it shouldn't be too much work.

Why? That's because Lyndiman has released his New Zealand Ortho scenery covering the entire country (like 250GB+ worth of photoreal scenery). Flying around NZ with complete photoreal scenery has been a real joy, and I would love to see FlightBeam products ported to X-Plane. If you think Godzone is nice, please give this a try.

Very good choice, the NZ was good to develop with ORBX and Godzone Virtual Flight, and Flightbeam for both major airports. Thank you!!!

What a fantastic choice!! When you announced there was something on the way while Auckland would get delayed, I've hoped so much it would be Wellington. Will also be the my first Wellington scenery ever on my Flightsim (that will work). And thanks for extending your coverage area (again) outside the US.
Regards, Dominik

Hi Mir / Sammy,

I love all your products, haven't been on the support forum for a while (guess that is because they work :) ) so I don't know Sammy. Hi Sammy! Anyway I am very excited to see a big name developer do something different. I love New Zealand and it is one of those places that just simply gets ignored. I also want massive treatment for my other favorite island chain of Hawai'i. I am getting tired of hearing two versions of Singapore are in the works, three versions of Beijing or Shaghai (I've already tuned them out) from other devs. So thanks Mir for the vision to go a smaller international / regional airport. It will give me the chance to explore NZ more as I am planning to getting Auckland as well.

I have a concern about the NZ airports on the horizon.

The Flightbeam Manager has a season switch for ALL airports, what about the problem of flying from say KSFO to NZAA, two opposite seasons?

That setting will soon be dynamic without needing further user input, eliminating any confusion between the two hemisphere seasons :)

This is extraordinary news. Unlike some other(s), this is very region specific for the VA I fly with. There, we are world bound and in fact for the month of June, we have an event (New Zealand) happening as we speak. This would be ideal for it and beyond as its a frequently visited destination year round.
Really looking forward to it and NZAA. This is exciting for both tube liners, regional + PA flights
Well done FB...well done

NZWN major terminal upgrade just started https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/105185 ... n-terminal
I think this is just internal upgrade, hopefully.

Yes thankfully it's mainly interior renovation. They recently expanded the main terminal and added a brand new connection to the domestic terminal, so it would make no sense for them to toss that away. The exterior of the main terminal is there to stay for quite some time. 8-)
