Boundless Releases Gloucester Airport for XP11

Written by on September 21, 2021

Highly praised scenery developer Boundless has released their rendition of Gloucestershire Airport (EGBJ) for X-Plane 11.

Firstly, the scenery is fabulously rendered using PBR texturing. This gives the airfield a very realistic atmosphere.

Hangars of different shapes and sizes are also modelled, giving virtual pilots plenty of room to park. The developer has packed a punch when it comes to detail, with many distinctive artefacts implemented all around the airfield.

Speaking about parking, the developer used an accurate airport layout. As a result, custom realistic ground markings are included.

The scenery caters well for night flyers. Custom HD night lighting is implemented, giving nocturnal aficionados an illuminated base.

Furthermore, the developer has stated that their team conducted several visits to the real airport. As a result, the scenery is modelled to a very high degree of accuracy.

Gloucestershire Airport is situated 3.5 nautical miles (6.5 km) from Cheltenham. Initially known as  RAF Staverton, the airbase served during the Second World War as a training base for Royal Air Force pilots.

At this time, Gloucestershire Airport is regarded as Britain’s busiest general aviation airfield. The airport mainly serves to cooperate operations. It also houses several flying clubs for private pilots and welcomes recreational pilots.

In conclusion, this airport is extremely polyvalent. Whether you are interested in VFR, corporate or even practice flying, you can fly into Gloucester.
