5 days prior, the folks at Orbx has unwrapped their latest airport in their conversion process to have all their UK airports in X-Plane 11. It seems now that they're on a roll wiht these great port overs.

The airport has a notably rich history, being the oldest licensed airfield in the UK, and is located by the beautiful Shoreham by Sea in West Sussex. As with most of the airport creations, each and every airport building and structure is carefully crafted to resemble the real world counterpart, the main highlight tht is the terminal is constructed with distinctive Art Deco style originated in France before World War 1.

This is the perfect airport for GA flight simmers, as the airport is also a leading base for GA flying along the south coast. Nearby towns of Brighton, Hove, and Worthing are within reachable distance through rail, and if you're adventurous (this is a flight sim after all), travel with your aircraft.

As with the previous Southampton Airport, Shoreham is designed to work best with TrueEarth GB South. Without the base scenery, the airport will risk appering inferior to Orbx's promotional screenshots. (Missing or misplaced forests, non-aligned road or motorway traffic, missing or misplaced houses and buildings surrounding the airport, ortho colour matching and blending or other visual anomalies.)
