Burning Blue Design, a rather new scenery developer in the community, has recently released a scenery covering the Farnborough Airport (EGLF), located just a few miles out of London in the city of Farnborough, for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

The scenery offers its users over 90 custom 3D objects that all use PBR textures, over ten thousand placed stock assets across the airport and its close vicinity, high-resolution color-corrected orthoimagery, custom night lighting, and custom landmarks in the airport vicinity.

The developer in the feature list as well mentions that every fence, parking space, cone, light, and tree is accurately represented and placed in the scenery. There are over ten thousand carefully placed stock assets around the scenery in addition to the custom ones.

The scenery can be purchased through the Burning Blue Design website for approximately €20.

Farnborough Airport (EGLF) is probably most known for its history which is dating back to early 20th century when the first powered, controlled and sustained flight in the United Kingdom was acomplished there. As of today, it is home to a yearly airshow, and is considered as the most prestigious business aviation hub.

Feature list

  • Over 90 custom 3D objects have been created exclusively for Farnborough Airport, each with full Physical Based Rendering (PBR) allowing for far more realistic textures.
  • Over ten thousand carefully placed stock assets across the airport and surrounding area, every fence, parking space, cone, light and tree has been placed in it’s correct location bringing life to Farnborough airport and the surrounding area.
  • As with all Burning Blue Design Products new custom working Windsocks have been created and accurately placed around the airport.
  • High resolution colour corrected ground textures have been used as a basis for the airport, these have been taken from Bing maps and heavily manipulated for consistency and realism which far surpasses the quality of the stock Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 ground texture.
  • New taxiways and roads have been created in and around the airport and the runway with it’s huge displaced threshold has been faithfully recreated.
  • Full night lighting placed across the airport and surrounding area including individually placed street lights along the surrounding roads.
  • Surrounding landmarks have been created and placed in their correct locations to improve visual navigation and general airport atmosphere, these include:
    • The Wind Tunnel Project.
    • Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre
    • The Aviator Hotel
    • The Gloster E28/39 monument to Sir Frank Whittle.
    • Farnborough Air Sciences Trust Museum (FAST) with it’s assortment of display aircraft.
    • Farnborough Airship Hangar Frame.
    • Farnborough Business Park.

I've been a flight sim enthusiast for some time now, and I've always enjoyed flying to various destinations all over the world. My favourite airport is by far Corfu with its scenic and challenging approach. I founded FSNews in May 2019.
