Scenery developer Short Final Design (SFD) has released San Francisco International (KSFO) Definitive for X-Plane 11. The long-awaited airport is finally here and is one of the most detailed renditions created for the platform.

The airport product is packed with features including an accurate airport layout, detailed modelling with baked ambient occlusion, interior modelling and custom high-resolution textures across the board. There is also use of PBR materials on objects and the ground, along with animated trains, cars, airport vehicles and workers.

Whilst the product has been made for X-Plane 11, Short Final Design promises that there is a free update planned for X-Plane 12 at some point in the future.

If you’re looking to pick up the airport, you can do so from the store for $26.95 USD.
