Pilot Plus has released their rendition of London Biggin Hill Airport (EGKB). The airport was opened during the First World War as a base for the Royal Flying Corps. However, the airport is actually best known for its role during the Second World War, and the Battle of Britain in particular. The airport was fully transferred to civil use when the RAF left the airport in 1992, and nowadays it is mostly used for general aviation, ranging from private aviation to large business jets.
Pilot Plus has worked together closely with the airport management to make sure to deliver a realistic and authentic representation of the airport. The airport has been modelled to high detail, and a lot of attention to details has been paid. The terrain has 1m resolution accuracy, and the notorious ‘Biggin Hill Bump’ has been included as well. The airport has been fully covered with high-resolution PBR textures, and the scenery features optional static aircraft among other things.
