Orbx's GB Airport saga continues with EGKA Shoreham

The sage continues with Orbx and their GB airports; following their first airport complimenting TrueEarth GB EGHI Southampton, the Orbx team travels to nearby EGKA Shoreham, bringing their touch of magic to the area. Situated on the South Coast of the UK at Shoreham by Sea, the airport was once named "Brighton Airport" and is the oldest licensed airfield in the UK. The airport is central to GA flying in the country and is a major hub for flying activities along the coast. Surrounding the airport is the city with the same name, and the town of Worthing.

The main terminal features distinctive Art Deco architecture which was painstakingly recreated and positioned, along with all the other structures within the vicinity of the airfield. Surrounding South Downs and the coast on the other side is also crafted in detail for the utmost immersion in sim.

Key Features

  • HD ground imagery
  • Art deco terminal
  • Animated flags
  • Brand new Southern Trains carriage models and livery!
  • Custom modelled airport and houses
  • The gothic style Lancing College main hall on the hill (scene of Harry Potter film shoot)
  • Custom modelled landmarks
  • Colour matched imagery for TrueEarth Great Britain South
  • Optimized for great performance

EGKA Shoreham Airport will be available to purchase from OrbxDirect soon for AUD $24.95 (approx. USD $17.90 / €15.75 / £13.90)
