Just less than a month after their release of EGJJ Jersey, scenery developer Runway 26 Simulations has released their next airport, EGJB Guernsey for X-Plane 11.
Guernsey is the second largest Channel Island located just north of the Normandy coast of France and is home to over 60,000 people. The island, although much closer to France, is part of the United Kingdom. Guernsey airport is served by airlines such as Eurowings, Loganair, and Aurigny. Guernsey is the home to Aurigny Air Services which operates flights between the channel islands, mainland UK and seasonal flights to Grenoble in the south of France. Aurigny flies these routes using multiple aircraft types including the ATR-72 and the Embraer 195. There has been recent discussion as to whether to extend the runway to 1700m to accommodate larger aircraft such as the Boeing 737 or the Airbus A320.
Runway 26 Simulations has recreated the airport to incorporate custom-built terminal buildings with PBR materials along with high definition ground texturing and lots of ground traffic and aircraft. The airport also has Autogate Compatability to help park your aircraft with moving gate guidance.
