Offering GA fanatics another grass strip to discover, scenery developer Burning Blue Design has released its rendition of one of Cornwall’s most iconic GA airfields, Bodmin Airfield (EGLA), for MSFS.
Initially developed by a local business to make aviation accessible to all, Bodmin Airfield (EGLA) is a well-known English general aviation airfield located 4nm to the northeast of Bodmin in Cornwall. After the airfield’s completion, ownership was eventually taken over by the Cornwall Flying Club in 1972 who has remained responsible for operating the airport to this day. On an interesting sidenote, Bodmin Airfield (EGLA) served as the original testing grounds for Trago Mills’ SAH-1 series trainer aircraft during the early 1980s. Originally built to serve as a replacement to the Royal Air Forces then aging “Bulldog” fleet, the Trago Mills SAH-1 was the brainchild of the same entrepreneur that was initially behind the development of the Bodmin Airfield (EGLA) itself, Mike Robertson.
