Drzewiecki Design announced that their last piece of puzzles for the Seattle Airports X – KPAE Paine will be released very soon.
KPAE Paine is now completed which means that the whole Seattle Airports X package is completed. KPAE turned out to be one of our most complex airports. Some extra features: SODE jetways, Delivery Center interior, Everett Factory interior (both interiors fully Avatar-compatible), the record number of static aircraft perfectly integrated into the scenery, tons of airport-dedicated vehicles, the most advanced optimization we have ever used and much more.
Please note that the v1.1 of the Seattle Airports X package will be a payware update which will add KSEA Tacoma airport as well as some other details like a completed passenger terminal in KPAE. The basic package will cost about 20eur and 30 after the update, so the update price will be about 10eur.
Just to be clear – our KSEA is not intended to be a competition to the beautiful Taxi2Gate version, which our product will be fully compatible with. Our KSEA will feature quite a different approach to that airport and soon you will see why (it is not about being light or heavy, it will simply be different). 🙂
Currently we will concentrate our efforts on the City package which is also almost completed. Both products will be released simultaneously.
All our products are compatible with all ORBX, PILOTs and Megascenery products.
About the Pain Field (KPAE)
Paine Field (IATA: PAE, ICAO: KPAE, FAA LID: PAE), also known as Snohomish County Airport, is a small international airport serving part of the Seattle metropolitan area in the U.S. state of Washington. It is located in unincorporated Snohomish County, between the cities of Mukilteo and Everett, about 30 miles (48 km) north of Seattle. PAE covers 1,315 acres (532 ha) of land.
The airport was built in 1936 by the Works Progress Administration and began commercial service in 1939. It was named for Topliff Olin Paine in 1941, shortly before the Army Air Corps began occupation of Paine Field for military use. The airport briefly returned to civilian use in the late 1940s, before conversion into an air force base during the Korean War. In 1966, the Boeing Company selected Paine Field for the site of its Everett assembly plant as part of the Boeing 747 program. By the 1970s, the airport had grown into a hub for light aviation and manufacturing, lacking commercial service. The county government sought to begin commercial service at Paine Field as early as the 1980s, but was halted by opposition from neighboring cities. In late 2018, Paine Field will resume commercial service at a privately-funded terminal served by Alaska Airlines and United Airlines.
It is served by a Federal Aviation Administration control tower, and has precision and non-precision instrument approaches available to pilots. It is included in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2017–2021, in which it is categorized as a national reliever facility.
