  • Nimbus Releases John F. Kennedy International Airport for X-Plane 12


    Nimbus Simulation Studios has recently released their detailed rendition of New York's John Fitzgerald Kennedy International Airport (KJFK) for X-Plane 12. As the busiest airport in New York City, JFK handles an impressive annual average of 60 million passengers.

    The airport, initially known as Idlewild Airport, was established 74 years ago on an old golf course, featuring a single 7,365 square meter terminal and six runways. In late 1963, following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the airport was renamed in his honor. This renaming coincided with JFK surpassing LaGuardia to become the busiest airport in the region and the second busiest in the United States.

    JFK serves as the busiest international gateway to the United States, with over 90 airlines operating flights to all inhabited continents. JetBlue holds the largest market share at JFK, with 28.8% (15,624,961 passengers), followed by Delta Air Lines with 28.4% (15,390,437 passengers) and American Airlines with 14.5% (7,870,971 passengers). Among foreign carriers, Air France leads with 1.9% of the market share, accounting for 1,025,339 passengers.

    The Nimbus Simulation Studios' scenery for JFK features a highly accurate rendition of the airport, including:

    • Custom ground textures and PBR materials
    • Custom night lighting
    • 3D native XP12 trees
    • Populated parking lots
    • High-quality PBR vehicles
    • Detailed terminals with interiors
    • Native X-Plane ground traffic
    • Native jetway system
    • Water and snow effects
    • Guidance lights for the Canarsie approach

    The scenery is available for purchase on the X-Plane.Org Store for $29.95 and requires at least 1.3 GB of free disk space for installation.
