Elstree for X-Plane 11


EGTR Elstree Aerodrome – the latest UK airport to be ported over to XP11 – is now available for purchase.

Combining the 1cm, 2cm and 3cm resolution ground polygons areas with the on-location photography of John Lovell, you will be completely immersed in the scenery here. The aerodrome is located in Elstree, which is situated 2.6 nautical miles east of Watford, Hertfordshire, England. It started out in the 1930s as a small landing strip and came into its own during World War Two when it was used for the overhaul and repair of military aircraft. After 1945, Halifax freighters operated from Elstree and several charter companies took up residence. Since then, Elstree has become one of the more popular general aviation airfields in the country.
