EGTR Elstree Aerodrome is coming to X-Plane!

Recommended Posts

Hot on the heels of Stapleford Airfield, comes EGTR Elstree Aerodrome - the latest UK airport to be ported over to XP11.

Combining the 1 cm, 2 cm and 3 cm resolution ground poly areas with the on-location photography of John Lovell, you will be completely immersed in the scenery here. The aerodrome is located in Elstree, which is situated 2.6 nautical miles east of Watford, Hertfordshire, England. EGTR started out in the 1930s as a small landing strip and came into its own during World War II when it was used for the overhaul and repair of military aircraft. After 1945, Halifax freighters operated from Elstree and several charter companies took up residence. Since then, Elstree has become one of the foremost general aviation airfields in the country and has become a popular venue for visiting pilots.

 

Key Features:

  • Incredible 1 cm, 2 cm and 3 cm/pixel ground poly
  • Countryside at 30 cm/pixel
  • Fully custom modelled airport
  • Created from on-site photography
  • Designed to be used in conjunction with TrueEarth GB South
  • Includes more surrounding autogen vegetation 

 

EGTR will soon be available to purchase from OrbxDirect for AUD $32.95 (approx. USD $23.80 / €20.75 / £18.55).  Remember that if you own EGTR for FSX/P3D, you will get 40% off the X-Plane version!

 

Please note that you will require Orbx Libraries updated and installed to version 1.45 which is also now available. MacOS/Linux users will have the latest libraries included in the cross-platform download available from your account page.

 

Please also note that for the best experience, we recommend using EGTR in conjunction with TrueEarth Great Britain South. The scenery will work without it, however some users may experience the following:

  • Missing or misplaced forests
  • Missing or misplaced buildings surrounding the airport
  • Photoreal blending

 

Here are some screenshots from Jon Murchison - enjoy!
