Round-Robin of the South of England

Joe Lavery visits three small airfields from the Orbx collection

This review is a bit different than my normal format, where this time I visit three of the small airfields from the Orbx collection located in the south of England. Starting with EGHR Chichester/Goodwood, then on to EGTF Fairoaks near Woking and finally to EGTR Elstree east of Watford. It’s a trip of roughly 95 miles that takes me through some of the busiest airspace in the world. So I will probably need to plan a dogleg around Heathrow or I might meet some unwanted traffic along the way.

My first stop, Runway 32 at Goodwood flying the default Cessna 172.

Chichester/Goodwood

In order to get a better overall look at Goodwood Aerodrome, I set the aircraft on a five-mile approach to Runway 32 directly over the town of Bognor Regis. It will also show how well the strip blends with the surrounding scenery (in this case the Orbx TrueEarth GB South scenery). The Aerodrome is located 1.5nm (nautical miles) northnortheast of Chichester and was built during World War Two by the Royal Air Force as a relief landing ground for the nearby RAF Tangmere.
