London City Airport for X-Plane 11

The latest UK destination to be released by Orbx is EGLC London City Airport for X-Plane 11.


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 to operate from EGLC is the Airbus A318, which has been modified with a steep approach certification.

The package from Orbx features high-definition Physically Based Rendering (PBR) ground textures with dry, damp and wet effects. Detailed ground service equipment, clutter and all-new HD static aircraft are modelled - all featuring PBR effects as well as 3D approach lights and night lighting throughout the airport.

Special effects include dynamic fire and rescue service vehicles that respond when an aircraft declares an emergency on approach. Fire trucks will deploy to your aircraft position once on the ground.

The surrounding area has been recreated with nearby high-rise buildings, including the ExCel convention centre and the Tate & Lyle Sugar factory along with realistic traffic on the surrounding road network. EGLC London City Airport is available for AUD $32.95 (approx£18.20) from OrbxDirect: The package will be released for Prepar3D at a later date.
