After the initial announcement from Boundless a couple of weeks ago, the scenery developer has confirmed to that London Stansted Airport (EGSS) will release in early March. We also now know that the X-Plane 11 airport will come equipped with plenty of features such as 4K texturing, autogate support and a layout accurate to the current state of the airport.
Stansted is one of the UK’s busiest airports with Ryanair making it their largest hub flying to over 100 destinations over Europe and North Africa. Along with high numbers of passenger traffic, Stansted is the largest cargo hub close to London, having moved over 250,000 tonnes of freight in 2017 as well as being able to handle the AN-225 Mriya. Stansted is also popular with private aircraft operators from Gulfstreams to 747s such as Air Force One despite being located 40 miles north of the city centre, although this only takes 15 minutes in Marine One.
Boundless has confirmed that Stansted Airport will come packed with goodies to please X-Plane pilots. As well as the detailed texturing, the scenery will feature animated ground vehicles and trains, custom HD trees and forestry in the nearby area and also support for Traffic Global. Furthermore, the airport will come equipped with terminal interiors, custom ortho and will be compatible with Orbx’s TrueEarth GB South.
Finally, we also know that Boundless will release Stansted Airport for X-Plane 11 for an expected price of £18.99 in various stores. Customers can get the best price directly from the Boundless and iniBuilds stores, but it will also be made available via X-Plane.org and simMarket.
When Stansted by Boundless is released, we’ll let you know.
