John Venema from Orbx has shared that the Orbx team will soon be releasing Leeds Bradford Airport for both X-Plane 11 and Prepar3D V4. The airport in the North of England is being developed by the same in-house UK team who delivered London City previously and Leeds will feature full PBR material objects and texturing throughout. The X-Plane 11 version will release first with the Prepar3D V4 version following on afterwards shortly. It’s worth noting that the previews and features down below are from the X-Plane version at present.
Leeds Bradford Airport (EGNM) sits in between both Leeds and Bradford and originally opened in 1931. Since then, it has grown into a popular airport for airlines focusing on leisure routes across Europe and beyond. Airlines such as TUI, Ryanair and Jet2 all frequent the airport, paving way for some scenic 737 approaches. There is also a large focus on local GA flying, too, as well as helicopter flying for both emergency services and nearby events.
One of the standout features with EGNM Leeds Bradford airport is the sloping runway, which will provide pilots a challenge on, as well as the full PBR material applied to the ground and buildings. As always with Orbx airports, there is an extensive coverage area included, all of which has been blended in to fit with TrueEarth GB Central. Additional features for the X-Plane 11 version include SAM controlled marshallers, static aircraft models and more.
As mentioned the Prepar3D V4 version will follow “a week or so” after the X-Plane 11 version has been released.
