Orbx has announced EGLC London City Airport for X-Plane 11 is out now.
Located in the heart of London city, EGLC provides important transport links between the capital and the rest of the UK as well as continental Europe. With a single 1,500m runway, only multi-engine aircraft and crew certification to fly 5.5° approaches are permitted to fly in and out of the airport. The largest aircraft which operate from EGLC is the Airbus A318, which has been modified with a steep approach certification.
The package from Orbx features full high-definition PBR ground textures with dry, damp and wet effects. Other highlights include detailed ground service equipment, clutter and all-new HD static aircraft models, all featuring PBR effects as well as realistic approach and airport lighting throughout the airport. Special effects include dynamic Fire & Rescue service that responds when an aircraft declares an emergency on approach and fire trucks will deploy to your aircraft position once on the ground.
The surrounding area has been recreated with nearby high-rises, including the Excel building, Tate & Lyle Sugar factory and all nearby high-rise buildings along with realistic traffic on the surrounding road network.
EGLC London City Airport is available to purchase from OrbxDirect for AUD $32.95 (approx. $22.95/ €20.50/ £18.20). The package will be released for Prepar3D at a later date.
For the best experience, Orbx recommends using EGLC in conjunction with TrueEarth GB South. The scenery will work without it, however some users may experience the following:
- Missing or misplaced forests
- Missing or misplaced buildings surrounding the airport
- Photoreal blending.
