How to Land at Lorville

Approaching Lorville

Lorville is covered by no-fly zones, so head for dead-centre of the city from high altitude on a vertical approach. The landing site is composed of a series of subterranean hangers covered by two sliding doors that look like landing pads when seen from above.
