Get Heathrow Airport for Free on X-Plane 12

Those of you who may be after a free way to experience London’s Heathrow Airport (EGLL) in X-Plane 12 are now in luck thanks to the latest release from Zero Dollar Payware. The new airport is a completely free download for anyone (with an account on Threshold) and promises to be updated with even more features in the future.

The freeware release already features custom ortho imagery, ground textures and buildings that replicate a part of Terminal 2, all of Terminal 4, and Concourse C at Terminal 5. There is also realistic dirt and grunge throughout, 3D grass, as well as the implementation of SAM jetways, marshallers and VDGS.

In the future, more custom buildings will be added, along with improved clutter, vegetation, and ground markings. The project is currently in beta but will be updated.

It may not be a complete experience right now, but the team says the scenery is open-source and will be updated in the future. If you do want to contribute, you can find out how to do so here.

You can get your free copy of Zero Dollar Payware’s Heathrow scenery for X-Plane 12 over on the Threshold forums.
