UK2000 launches Belfast City Airport for MSFS
UK2000 is back to the… UK! The developer’s latest project for Microsoft Flight Simulator, after a brief incursion in the United States, is EGAC Belfast City Airport – not to be confused with the nearby Belfast International Airport (EGAA), which is already in MSFS in a fantastic work from Pyreegue.
George Best Belfast City Airport, named after the famous Man Utd footballer, is located about 15 miles east of EGAA, right in the heart of the city, near the docks. It opened in 1938 and was the primary airport serving the city… for a while, anyway. It served the government military forces until 1978, when it began to be used exclusively by Shorts, the aircraft manufacturer.
Belfast City Airport ended up attracting the attention of airlines during the 1980s. After a series of modernizations, EGAC is now served by a good amount of companies, which include Ryanair, EasyJet, British Airways, and Flybe, among others. These companies fly mainly to the rest of the UK, but there are a few flights to continental Europe as well.
With this new scenery for MSFS, UK2000 promises detailed models with high-resolution textures and PBR materials. The goal is to turn Belfast City Airport in MSFS into a more realistic representation of the real-world location, based on on-site research of the current 2022 layout.
UK2000’s rendition of EGAC includes a realistic sloped runway, accurate ground markings, dynamic night lighting, and other additional special features that should make the difference. It may not be the outstanding class act of Pyreegue’s Belfast Intl, but it should still be a very significant and welcome upgrade over the default EGAC scenery!
EGAC Belfast City Airport is now available for MSFS from the developer’s website, priced at £14.99.
