Aloha Honolulu - the Paradise of the Pacific! 🌴🌊🥳


iniBuilds Summer Surprises Day 5, brings you all a fantastic, highly requested scenery - Honolulu International Airport! 🎉

Daniel K. Inouye International Airport, commonly known as Honolulu International Airport (PHNL) offers many nonstop flights to many places in North America, Asia and Oceania. The FAA categorizes this airport as a large-hub primary commercial service facility, with significant commercial and military flight traffic!


Being the hub of Hawaiian airlines, the airport attracts many of the largest airlines of the world such as United, Southwest, American, Korean and Qantas! Some of the busies routes stretch as far as Manila - Philippines or Osaka - Japan to many cities in the mainland United states such as Las Vegas, San Francisco or Los Angeles! ✈️

This airport is fantastic for those who wish to fly long-haul, or short/medium haul ops to the mainland United States, Canada or the other Hawaiian islands! 🌴 The airport had over 18 million passengers pass through in 2022! 



Features list:

  • Hand crafted ground poly, textures with crisp, bespoke texture sets (Runways, aprons, paths, roads)
  • True-to-life airport land side recreation with custom ground decals, signposts, vegetation, parking barriers and more
  • Accurately modelled and positioned dynamic airport lighting
  • Highly detailed models of all airport buildings, objects and surroundings
  • Bespoke taxi signage as it is in the real world
  • Up to date airport layout reflecting the current, real-world location
  • Custom built jetways with realistic variations using PBR texturing and animations, including gate number toppers
  • Fully modelled Cultural Garden, along with custom buildings with unique artwork that adorn the buildings
  • Level of Detail (LOD) optimisation for every model to encourage the best performance possible
  • Use of the latest MSFS SDK features to allow for the best optimisation and performance possible
  • Custom static aircraft
  • Full iniManager compatibility to configure your scenery for the best possible performance for your system 
  • Custom GSX profile included made by the amazing RW Profiles - some more news on that on Friday 1 Sept 😉 


A bit like we did with other scenery announcements, let's walkthrough some of the cool features of this airport. Starting with the above image, whilst not being a 1st line asset, we wanted to provide an authentic experience to this airport and this is a super prominent building along the airport boundary!


Most airports we have made, have usually been full commercial airports, but for those who love military bases; you are in luck! Honolulu International Airport, shares runways with Hickam Air Force Base which has been fully modelled! 

Hickam is a USAF installation, and is home to the 15th Wing and 67 partner units including Headquarters of Pacific Air Forces (PACAF), Hawaii Air National Guard and the 154th Wing (154 WG) of the Hawaii Air National Guard. The Air Mobility Command's 515th Air Mobility Operations Wing (515 AMOW) provides tactical and strategic airlift within the Pacific region.


The details transcend throughout the whole airport; and we have ensured all cargo areas are fully modelled!


From custom GSE to a fully modelled landside, this is truly a fantastic airport, that you should add to your collection! 🥳


As mentioned above in the features list, we have also fully modelled the Cultural Garden that sits in the interior of the terminal walkways; and do not worry - the intense vegetation can be switched off via iniManager, for those on lower end systems. 



Now, to probably the most important part of this announcement! 🙂❤️


10% of all revenue in the first month, will be going to the American Red Cross for the Hawaii Wildfire crises that have affected thousands of people.

Like the Turkey Earthquake disaster, at iniBuilds, we want to support humanitarian efforts as much as we can around the world and do our part for society beyond flight simulation.

If you would like to donate directly to supporting this effort; you can do so here 😊 https://www.redcross.org/local/hawaii.html

In usual iniBuilds scenery fashion; I leave you with the iniBuilds Honolulu International Airport trailer! Rest assured any bugs that present themselves, will be swiftly fixed in a patch! 🙂 

Many thanks
iniBuilds Team! 🙂
