During the second World War, this airport was used as a Royal Airforce Training site until 1949 when British Airways was the first to begin commercial services again to destinations such as Amsterdam, Zurich, Palma and Barcelona.

Currently, EGBB is the seventh busiest airport in the United Kingdom, with it previously being the home to FlyBe who recently went into administration.

    Once again a great scenery thanks to Macco Simulations – really showing what can be done with MSFS with hand made brand new airport scenery. EGBB will be amazing when the Aerosoft CRJ comes. I look forward to the updates too – what’s done so far is incredibly good, I can’t wait to see it updated over time!

    Macco Simulations have done another outstanding job with EGBB (Birmingham Airport), they have taken a very dull piece of scenery and made it come to life, just like they have with EGCC (Manchester Airport) this is a must buy and keep up the great work guys!

    Macco Simulations has once again took a shambles of a default scenery and made it into an amazing, bustling airport and this is just the beginning! I cannot wait to see this airport develop.

    really enjoying your wonderful EGBB are there any plans to insert the perimeter fence and remove trees covering the landing lights on approach to rwy 15 ?

      We will indeed! As it is still in early access, there are a few things which are missing still.

    Fantastic addition to the sim, I knew it was going to be good after I downloaded Manchester.

    After purchasing MAN and been so impressed, I had to also get BHX to try out. I operated a few times out of BHX and once again you guys are doing a fantastic job in re-creating this airport. Great job!

    Great progress has been made in giving us a very realistic looking EGBB, with further development promised. It’s a huge undertaking with further details to add but I have patience enough!

    Absolutely superb remake of Birmingham which really brings the place to life over the default scenery. It remains a work in progress, but really looking forward to seeing the finished version once the perimeter details are added in at the front of the terminal. Hoping the NEC (which adds much to immediate surrounding area and immersion of the airport) will be included, or at least Birmingam International railway station to enable the AirRail Link to be added. Attention to detail looks superb so far – would highly recommend!

    You are the ground texture KINGS!!! Comparing to EDDM from Aerosoft – Birmingham looks REAL. I will buy whatever you publish. Thanks!

    This scenery is absolutely fantastic – especially as I worked there previously, and unbelievable that, as an early access development, more is yet to come! Hoping that realistic AI aircraft software will appear soon so that it can be properly populated.

    Really fantastic airport, I can’t fly from Birmingham without it these days. It’s so much more true to life.
    Excited for the final buildings to be added, any ETA on that please, devs?

    I really like this scenery. It feels/looks very much like the real EGBB. My main disappointment is about the lack of modelling in the area in front of the terminal entrances. I hope that is part of the updating plan for this scenery.

      We will be revisiting both EGBB and EGCC after we release our latest airport 🙂
