We have just released V0.2.0 of EGBB Birmingham airport, and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with the community!
We had such an amazing reception with our EGCC Manchester addon, that before the end of 2020 we couldn’t resist sharing a beta version of Birmingham Airport with all who purchased it at the end of last year! This was a little gift from us to everyone who purchased our very first airport.
This free beta preview included a brand new runway, aprons, taxi lines and stands, which meant that the airport could be used and was VATSIM and IVAO compliant!
We are now very excited to announce that the BHX Birmingham airport addon is now available in early access on our website!
Over the next couple of months, we will be working hard to get all peripheral building in, and will be continuing work on Manchester airport at the same time.
EGBB – Birmingham Airport
Birmingham Airport (EGBB/BHX) is located 7 nautical miles from Birmingham City in the United Kingdom and is the 7th busiest airport in the country.
BHX is not only an international airport but is also a hub for regional flights within the UK.
Some of the busiest destinations from and to this airport include Germany, Spain, Dubai, Netherlands, France, Greece, Ireland, Spain and not to mention the multitude of regional UK airports.
This airport has unique runway undulations which makes taking off and landing here a treat!
Currently in Early Access
Version: V0.5.5 – Uploaded at 11:55 GMT 11/04/2021
We have an amazing community in our discord server, from people who fly regularly out of the airport, to staff members working on the ground. The amazing people sent, and are still sending images and videos of the airport to help us make it 100% accurate!
The airport add-on is in early access, which is the same as we did for EGCC Manchester, so all future updates are free of charge.
On release date, the price for this airport will be £8.99!
With the release of Aerosoft’s CRJ on the horizon, we thought it would be a perfect time to release the airport, in preparation for all of those regional and international flights coming in and out of Birmingham Airport in MSFS2020!
Many thanks to British Avgeek for producing a promo video which you can watch below!
We would also like to thank Twitch Streamer and YouTuber FlightZilla for filming and producing our very own promo video to be uploaded to our official Macco Simulation YouTube channel! You will be able to watch it on our channel today at 12:30 GTM!
