The Original Manchester Airport for X-Plane 11
It’s interesting to see that Orbx is expanding its product range for X-Plane 11, which taps into a massive potential customer base. This latest release reinforces its commitment to the platform because it depicts an airport that is currently only available for X-Plane.
The airport in question is Manchester City (EGCB) Airport, also known by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) as Manchester/ Barton or Barton Aerodrome. While it’s classed as an airport, it is in fact an airfield, with grass being the only covering for its four runways. So it’s primarily a (very popular) GA airport that also caters for helicopters and a few small commercial operators.
