About

I am pleased to present a very detailed and accurate depiction of London Stansted Airport as it exists in 2020/2021.

Features include:
  • High quality and accurate 3D models of the main terminal, satellite terminals, NATS tower, Cargo terminals (TNT, Royal Mail, FedEx), Ryanair Hangar, Diamond Hangar.
  • All assets are well textured (including night lighting)
  • Bespoke & highly detailed 3D models placed around each and every gate, including signage and custom baggage vehicles.
  • Gates functional using the default moving ramps (Which are similar enough to the ones used at Stansted.
  • Some 3D interiors (Mostly satellite terminals and in ATC tower)
  • Animated vehicles throughout (baggage carts, transit system, air-side buses and terminal buses)
  • Custom static aircraft - 737-800 Ryanair & Jet2
  • Accurate custom ground markings, apron textures and taxi-markings are hand-placed
  • Accurate taxiway naming, works with the default ATC.
  • Up-to-date 2020 constructions including the new Apron E, Multi-Story car park and realistic construction site
  • Hampton by Hilton and Radisson Blu hotels, and Enterprise House police station all animated in detail with animated flags
  • Immersive clutter, debris and grime textures around each gate
  • Placed the parking sopts from scratch to reflect real gate numbers
  • Animated passenger transit system outside Main Terminal, which takes passengers to the satellite terminals
  • Accurate, worn runway texturing with lifelike tire markings in the touch down zone. Unfortunately due to Asobo's texture system, there are limitations in making the skid marks & grime go over the runway markings
  • Much more accurate landscaping around the entire airport, including on runway
  • Thousands of hand-placed objects from the default MSFS library, particularly around the private hangars (which are not [yet?] bespokely modelled)
  • PBR & nighttime emission texturing throughout
  • Complete perimeter fencing
V2 Changelog:
  • Many additional markings & apron improvements
  • More attractive grass finished across the airport
  • Fixed runway start positions
  • Fixed windsock rotation
  • Fixed ground elevation particularly near Ryanair hangar
  • Updated night lighting on the terminal buildings
  • Updated night lighting on the hotels & police station
  • Larger taxiway signs & more of them placed
  • Many additional placed objects
  • Improved runway tire markings
  • Renamed modellib in case of potential conflicts
Areas for improvement:
  • Custom modelled hangars in the private airfield to the NW of the airport
  • Offer version with no static aircraft for VATSIM users
  • Apparently floating terminals (only sometimes)
  • Additional interior details of satellite terminals
About Stansted:

London Stansted is one of the fastest growing airports in Europe and the fourth busiest in the UK after Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester.

Stansted offers limitless possibilities for immersive aviation simulation. Primarily it is a hub for Easyjet A320 and Ryanair 737, Jet2, TUI and Titan operations, with over 200 destinations across EMEA.

The airport is also capable of handling the largest aircraft, often as cargo operations.

With addition to the main airport, the north west site of the original WW2 military airfield is now the site of private aviation companies including Harrods Aviation that handle private flights, charter flights and state visits seeing a variety of planes, which have included US Presidential visits on Air Force One and even the US space shuttle.

Can we remove the static aircraft and the elevations out please it's a great airport spoilt by bumps hills and dips

Wow this is THE best freeware airport ive come acroos. Incredibly detailed. Fantastic job.

For anyone struggle with elevation issues on the taxiways and aprons, I made a small flatten polygon around the airport. Just extract and drop the following folder to community. https://mega.nz/file/OjxUFSDB#vDn3bwzUG5XQVG95061AeFSME6e2ZSvab6K8eK84ew0

Make sure to keep the "zzz" in the folder name, so the sim loads it after the airport itself. Hope it helps

Great airport thanks and plus its my local one, which is my go-to airport to start from. Shame its not being updated anymore, saying that Im happy to help update it if you want? Otherwise I will attempt to build one myself. Thanks

Sadly the airport doesn't work with FSLTL at all. The program just closes every time I try to start from there.

folks with elevation problems, a quick reinstall appears to have fixed all issues. hope this works for all of you!

Great addon overall, would be nice for an update and to get rid of the parked up Ryanairs!

This airport is beautiful! Thank you very much for creating. Its just a bit sad that it apparently isn't anymore compatible with the sim. I hope you find the time and motivation to update it, because it is one of the greatest freeware airports in flightsim.to.

Can we please please please get an update for this airport!! Since the updates there's all kinds of elevation issues! I hope youve not abandoned this project! Perhaps you should have made this payware to keep you dedicated to it!

As others have mentioned, the elevation data is all over the place making the taxiways more akin to the roads of the UK... Be nice to ditch the parked-up Ryanairs now. I assume they were like this for Covid but no longer grounded.

With GSX out, a GSX profile has been made for this scenery but the amount of placed baggage carts, etc, I believe, gives GSX a few issues/ conflicts.

Not Quite compatible with SU10, need some tweaking to fix Elevation Issues, pity coz the scenery is payware quality

This was a 5 star product but for some reason the terrain has gone all over the place in the recent update. So has to go to under three stars now. models are great and so much better but the terraforming needs to be fixed to use this airport again.

This is an amazing project, hope you guys can update it for the current FS2020 Version!

Great Airport, but recent updates have made the taxiways almost unusable due to terrain/elevation issues. Would also love to see a version without static aircraft, many thanks!

This was great when it came out, but now after all the updates the sim has gone though, there are elevation issues (some stands unusable due to this issue) and some awful shimmering on the terminal glass which I didn't mind at first but now It's getting very annoying. I hope you can update this amazing freeware soon

This is SO good, but recently the ground elevation has gone amiss. The taxiways are very bumpy - almost unnavigable.

please can you make a version without static planes? thanks

hey buddy been a while since i asked, any chnace of the no static/less static aircraft version for vatsim? Its a very busy day 35 plus departures and parking is of a premium!

I find many of the taxiways far too undulating and bouncy

why do somethings not render in i dont see the fedex sign
