If you usually fly around the New York area, then you’ll be happy to know that there’s a new airport to add to your list of customised destinations in Microsoft Flight Simulator. Fly 2 High has released its rendition of Long Island MacArthur Airport (KISP), which comes just a few days after KJFK’s launch from iniBuilds. Good times for fliers in the NYC airport system!
Located in Ronkonkoma, New York, Long Island MacArthur Airport serves both general aviation and approximately two million airline passengers each year. Owned and operated by the Town of Islip, the airport spans 1,311 acres and features three runways and two helipads. Fly 2 High has now recreated this airport for MSFS, allowing simmers to further expand their airport collection in the New York metropolitan area.
Fly 2 High’s KISP rendition features a highly detailed representation of the airport, with realistic models of terminals, hangars, buildings, and other facilities. The layout of taxiways, aprons, and stands mirrors the real-world airport, hoping to offer a high level of authenticity for virtual pilots in Microsoft Flight Simulator.
Fly 2 High didn’t stray away from the trends and added interior terminal modeling to this scenery, adding an extra layer of realism for those who look to explore the scenery in more detail. Animated humans bring life to the airport environment, making it feel like a living, breathing space.
The developers have also given some attention to the lighting in this airport, with custom blue light and dynamic nighttime lighting capturing the airport’s atmosphere. Custom animated jetways and up-to-date runway, taxiway, and stand layouts further enhance the experience.
Fly 2 High promises to address user feedback in a timely manner, fixing errors as they are reported by users in an effort to achieve continual improvement and solidify their reputation as a quality scenery developer for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
Long Island MacArthur Airport is now available for MSFS users to explore and enjoy. It’s available exclusively through SimMarket, priced at around $22.
