ENOV Ørsta-Volda Airport
Ørsta-Volda Airport is a regional airport located in Ørsta, Norway serving the towns of Ørsta and Volda. The airport features a 1,070-meter asphalt runway aligned to 06/24. Surrounded by stunning scenery, it is a short flight away from Ålesund and Sandane.
The airport is mainly used by Widerøe who operate several flights a day using their fleet of Dash 8s. The main route flown is to Oslo, but there are also other regional flights.
This version of ENOV and the surrounding industrial estate has been created to be as accurate as possible with highly detailed ground and object textures, night-lighting and trees. The entire airport and the surrounding industrial estate has been recreated in very high detail and should be very accurate to real-life. The ground textures have also been hand-created to match the buildings correctly.
Requirements and Installation
This airport was developed mainly in X-Plane 10, but also works fine in X-Plane 11. The airport was designed to work on the default XP10 mesh, but also works with Ortho4XP. There is a mesh provided for use with X-Plane 11 which will smooth out the main runway surface (To use drag out the z – ENOV Mesh XP11 into your Custom Scenery and make sure it is below the airport in scenery_packs.ini).
Because of the detail in this scenery, a fairly good machine is required. An NVidia 750 with 2GB should be around the minimum required to run this scenery smoothly depending on settings and other installed scenery. If using with UHD mesh, then be aware that you’ll need a fast machine with at least 16GB of RAM.
This scenery is completely custom made and requires no libraries and can be installed by simply dropping the airport into your Custom Scenery folder
The airport can be used with the default scenery, Ortho4XP and Norway Pro.
I’ve attempted to blend this airport into the terrain as provided by HD Mesh in X-Plane 10.
For X-Plane 11 there is an included mesh which will smooth out the terrain. The flattening algorithm in X-Plane messes up the scenery and surrounding mountains so I’ve tried not to use it.
If you are using the optional Norway Pro mesh, please remove it, it will make the airport too bumpy to use.
The scenery is available for free from ENOV Ørsta-Volda
