Pyreegue Previews East Midlands Airport for MSFS
January 3, 2023
Pyreegue has recently published a roadmap for 2023 with their many plans for the new year, including a couple of preview images of his upcoming East Midlands Airport (EGNX) for Microsoft Flight Simulator, developed with ‘incredible attention to detail’ and featuring ‘numerous exciting features.’ He’s also announced an eventual update to his Edinburgh Airport (EGPH) with ‘new models, textures, mesh, custom satellite imagery, and more.’
The preview images show the control tower and the Rolls Royce Hangar, built by RPS Group and designed to accommodate separate heritage and corporate hangars.
The hangars are connected by a central spine and feature a dedicated maintenance and workshop space for each one. Additionally, there is a shared area for conferences, offices, a seminar space, a library, crew and locker rooms, and restrooms. The design even had children and students in mind with a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) facility where they could attend training events and seminars. The project (the real-life counterpart) was developed in close contact with Rolls Royce, with all their requirements in mind, from the concept to the space planning and detail design.
East Midlands Airport is located in Leicestershire, England, and serves the East Midlands region of the country, including the cities of Derby, Leicester, and Nottingham. It is the largest cargo airport in the UK and the seventh busiest airport in terms of passenger numbers. In 2020, the airport handled around 5 million passengers and over 200,000 tonnes of cargo.
It has a single terminal and serves a variety of airlines, including budget carriers such as Ryanair and easyJet, as well as traditional carriers like British Airways and KLM. The airport has a diverse route network, with direct flights to destinations across Europe and some long-haul destinations in the Middle East and the Caribbean. Domestically, the airport has good connectivity to major cities in the UK, including London, Manchester, and Glasgow.
Facility-wise, it has a range of amenities for passengers, including a range of shops and restaurants, as well as lounges and a business center. The airport also has good transport links, with a railway station located within the terminal building and regular bus and coach services to nearby cities and towns. In recent years, the airport has undergone several expansion projects to improve its capacity and facilities, and it is well-regarded as a modern and efficient airport.
There’s no information regarding the release date or pricing yet, but we’ll keep you informed once there’s new intel.
