Ben McClintock Posted August 22, 2019 Share Posted August 22, 2019 It's all about the location. We are delighted to announce that London City Airport is coming to life for Prepar3Dv4! Located a stone's throw away from Canary Wharf and the financial heart of the city, London City Airport is one of the last remaining true inner-city airfields. With one of the the most exciting approaches in Great Britain, flying into EGLC takes you over the iconic centre of downtown London. Servicing destinations across the UK, Europe, and until recently (and rather famously), New York via Shannon, the airfield hosts a bevy of airline and corporate types up to A318 in size. The short and narrow runway, coupled with the dramatic 5.5° approach and congested airspace, demands the complete attention of all pilots. So much so that all aircrew must be specially certified to fly in and out of the airport. From early proof-of-concept flights of Dash-7s landing on Heron Quays in the early 80s, the airport seen tremendous growth in recent years, with over 4 millions annual passengers passing through the terminal. The Turbulent team have brought something a little special for this project; London City is the first complete PBR airport for P3Dv4. Combining the latest P3D PBR technology, alongside other advanced features such as material scripting, EGLC brings this famous location to life in amazing detail. Perfect for a city infamous for it's weather, London City Airport features dynamic ground textures that react to rain and other adverse conditions. Designed to blend seamlessly with TrueEarth Great Britain South, the airport's coverage includes many important short-finals landmarks such as the Tate & Lyle Sugar Factory and ExCeL Exhibition centre. Of course, we have ensured that the product also works (though not seasonally blended) with Global Base or Orbx EU England (LC Region) if this better suits your simming experience. Be sure to keep an eye out for more screenshots and information of this exciting destination over the coming days! COVERAGE AT A GLANCE The first complete PBR airport for Prepar3Dv4!
