KPDX - Portland Intl.
KPDXHD was lovingly crafted by former Portlander Bill Womack, who took a great many of the source photos himself and spent many months hand-crafting this lovely, modern facility, which in real life was voted best in the United States several years running by Conde Nast Traveler magazine. This version has undergone a major makeover in order to take advantage of the many stunning features of the new Microsoft Flight Simulator, including all-PBR materials, custom groundwork, and immersive night lighting. Now KPDX can look as good as the rest of the Pacific Northwest in the sim!

Static aircraft should be on option to remove and there are issues with performance (FPS loss) and unusual graphic/texture issues near Marine Drive.
I just feel like there are opportunities to improve the area such as the large fence surrounding the airport, the ground vehicle roads on the perimeter
The developer was notified of this via email but there has been no fix yet.
With that said, Cascade Station was nicely modeled (along with IKEA) and a few other tidbits.

I am still happy with the overall visual quality of the airport though, it really is a nice rendition! It would be nice to see a proper perimeter fence around the airport though, especially on the northern side next to NE Marine Drive. Also, on this northern side there are some marinas that are modeled with MSFS default photogrammetry and are quite the eyesore by comparison to this beautiful airport! Would be a nice addition to see some customization here from the Portland Sailing Center back to the Sea Scouts, Cascade Pacific Council.
Over all though this Airport in it's current state is a very accurate rendition and recommended especially if you enjoy flying around this area of the US!

I needn't have worried, the contrail installer worked without a hitch and installed to the community directory as specified and KPDX loads up without issue. The visuals are on par with the XP11 version, which is my favorite as it integrates seamlessly with ORBX. This version does not disappoint in the visuals department, the new blast walls that feature so prominently in this release are not only there, they are there in more detail than in either of the other versions I have of this product. A solid product that promises to get even better as the developer has promised to look into some running changes at KPDX and try to implement them in this product.
A solid product and as someone who has flown in and out of the real one a few times in the last few years I can recommend it highly.
