Quality Freeware London Stansted Airport Available for MSFS

London Stansted Airport Egss Cqr2i

Every now and then a piece of freeware scenery comes along that compares, and sometimes exceeds, payware products. In this particular instance, user Liiiam over on has crafted a wonderful recreation of Stansted Airport (EGSS) for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

The feature list itself is massive and covers plenty of information on what you can find in this freeware scenery. As mentioned earlier, this is a complete rendition of the airport in the current 2020 state, including all of the construction happening. This also means that ground markings, taxiway naming and gate numbers are all correct. Developer Liiiam has created a number of high-quality 3D models throughout including the main and satellite terminals, cargo terminals, Ryanair’s hangar and much more. Along with the incredible-looking buildings is bespoke texturing complete with weathering and environmental effects for a more life-like appearance.

The download also comes with animated vehicles, an animated passenger transit system and also plenty of clutter around the airport depicting the airlines and services at Stansted Airport.

Whilst Liiiam has already done an impressive job with the airport, he has also highlighted areas that can be improved. For example, he lists that the runway textures could be better, along with improving the ground elevation in some areas. There is also talk of possible versions with no static aircraft, improved modelling of hangars in the private airfield and also increasing the size of taxiway and runway signage.

London Stansted (EGSS) is an important hub for the UK and serves plenty of destinations around Europe. It also has a huge presence for cargo operations if that’s your type of flying.

Again, all of this is free from, so head on over there and download your copy.
