Pilot Experience Sim Releases Brest-Bretagne Airport for MSFS

Pilot Experience Sim has recently released their rendition of Brest-Bretagne Airport (LFRB) for Microsoft Flight Simulator, serving the French city of Brest with a yearly average of 1.1 million passengers.

It was built by the US Navy during World War I, originally featuring two airship hangars. An airstrip was only constructed after the war, becoming “Brest Guipavas Airfield,” but it did not survive World War 2: it had to be rebuilt.

Rebuilding efforts only took place in the early 1950s, with the airport being reopened for commercial use in 1952, connecting Brest to Ouessant and Paris by the wings of Air Inter. 

With the popularization of air travel and the consequent increase in passenger volume, the airport underwent a massive expansion project in 1986, followed by a runway extension six years later, transforming the airport into a diversion ground for transatlantic flights. By 1989, the airport was averaging 500,000 passengers a year for the first time.

In December 2007, they inaugurated a brand new terminal, with 22,000 square meters of total area, able to accommodate up to 1.8 million passengers a year, with two wide-body jetways and fourteen stands for medium and small aircraft. It’s shaped like a manta ray.

The scenery features an accurate rendition of the airport, with an up-to-date ground layout, performance-friendly optimization, PBR textures, a realistic terrain profile, custom jetways, and a custom GSX profile.

It’s available on the iniBuilds Store for roughly $16.00, requiring at least 1.93 GB of free hard disk space to install.
