YBMK Mackay Airport

for Microsoft Flight Simulator

Orbx is pleased to announce the next Australian destination for Microsoft Flight Simulator - Mackay Airport! A debut project from Rob Byrne, Mackay is the first brand new Indie airport in Orbx's growing Australian catalogue for MSFS.

Mackay is a medium-sized city in North Queensland, with a flight of approximately 1h 20min in an A320 from Brisbane. It is a thriving mining and agricultural city with a growing tourism market as a gateway to the Whitsundays. Mackay Airport sees RPT services from Jetstar, Qantas/Qantaslink and Virgin Australia. With a 1900m (6500ft) sealed runway and multiple instrument approaches, Mackay can also serve as a training playground and a launching point for a tour of the Whitsundays.

Mackay is capable of handling a huge range of aircraft, including the 737 and A320. It is one of the relatively few airports in Australia where single-engine piston GA pilots get the chance to mix in with airliners.
