• Orbx - YBCG Gold Coast Airport Released

    Orbx - YBCG Gold Coast Airport

    Designed in parallel with the recently-released CityScene Gold Coast, YBCG is a highly detailed and incredibly complete reproduction of the airport and surroundings area, completing the most accurate and detailed airport-city combo currently in our catalogue.

    Gold Coast International Airport has been designed carefully and reflects the real-world layout of the airport; keen observers will even notice the new apron expansion and Taxiway Charlie. The scenery has been optimized using our latest techniques, and has been designed to work optimally with either Orbx CityScene Gold Coast and/or Orbx Australia.

    Orbx - YBCG Gold Coast Airport

    The Gold Coast International Airport (formerly known as Coolangatta Airport) is an international Australian airport located at the southern end of the Gold Coast. The entrance to the airport is situated in the suburb of Bilinga near Coolangatta. A great piece of trivia; runway itself straddles the state border of Queensland and New South Wales, and during the summer months these states are in two different time zones! The airport exceeded 6 million passengers and is the sixth-busiest airport in Australia. The airport is frequently visited by Boeing 787, 737, Airbus A330, 320/21 and Embraer jets. The airport also has a busy general aviation apron; the airport is as home to light single VFR weekend warriors as it is to heavy-metal captains.

    Orbx - YBCG Gold Coast Airport

    Gold Coast Airport has two airline lounges: one operated by Virgin Australia, and the other by Qantas; both have been in operation since 2012. The airlines which operate at the airport are many, for example you are likely to see AirAsia X, Virgin Australia, Air New Zealand, JETGO, Jetstar, Qantas, TigerAir and many more charter operations, particularly during the peak tourist season. The new apron at the southern end of the airfield was been opened just a few days before the Commonwealth Games and now is fully operative, the same for the new taxiway Charlie. Despite an acute lack of source material and references, this scenery has included both components with the help of local staff and pilots.
