Scenery developer Boundless has released Stansted Airport for X-Plane 11. The brand-new airport features high-quality textures, modelling and a range of features to make this the most comprehensive version of Stansted for the simulator.
Stansted Airport (EGSS) 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.
The airport product features an up-to-date rendition of the airport in its current state, with thousands of custom objects, accurate runway and taxiway signage and 4K PBR textures throughout. The airport also comes with fully modelled animated monorail and Stansted Express trains, interior modelling for the terminal buildings and custom airport ground traffic which is fully animated. Furthermore, the nearly roads, offices, car parks and hotels are also fully modelled (including well-established food outlets) which make for an authentic appearance during the approach.
You can buy Stansted Airport right now from the iniBuilds store for £18.99 (plus VAT). The release will be exclusive to the iniBuilds store for 1-month, before being made available through the Boundless website and then other stores.
