Ed Correia Posted September 23, 2019 Share Posted September 23, 2019 Welcome to Yorkshire's Airport! Orbx visits the north of England with EGNM Leeds Bradford Airport, the second product from our UK development in-house team following the high popular EGLC London City Airport. For some time our customers have been asking us to move further north and this project was a delight to work on and has exceeded our expectations in terms of its charm and character. Located at Yeadon, about 7 miles northwest of Leeds and about 9 miles from Bradford, it was opened in October 1931 as Yeadon Aerodrome, and is still often referred to as Yeadon Airport by locals. It is an iconic location set upon a plateau overlooking beautiful English countryside and features a very undulating runway, which is sure to challenge your approaches. EGNM serves Leeds, Bradford and the wider Yorkshire region including the cities of York and Wakefield, and the District of Harrogate, and is the largest airport within Yorkshire, handling over 4 million passengers in 2018 with nearly 40,000 traffic movements. This busy airport offers over twenty destinations with the most popular being the Spanish and Portuguese seaside and island resorts, Dublin, Amsterdam, Belfast and Heathrow. The two dominant airlines serving the airport are Jet2 and Ryanair but KLM, FlyBe and TUI also provide services. Aircraft types used include B733,738, A320, E190/195, Q400 plus smaller GA and commuter aircraft. This superb recreation of this characterful airport has full PBR support, great lighting effects on the runway and aprons and is optimised for performance. EGNM Leeds Bradford for X-Plane 11 is now available to purchase from OrbxDirect for AUD$32.95 (approx. US$22.30 | €20,31 | £17.94) Please ensure you have updated TrueEarth Great Britain Central to Version 1.1.1 available now on Orbx Central. When using this airport with TrueEarth GB Central it is recommended that the Texture Quality slider set to High or below for optimum performance. Setting it to Maximum will lead to very high VRAM usage and stutters. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
