Popham, UK - hand-crafted airport

Another airport crafted from scratch. It mostly uses stock objects but I have created a custom model for the green hangars.
I hope you enjoy it!

Info:

Popham Airfield (ICAO: EGHP) is an unlicensed airfield located 6 NM (11 km; 6.9 mi) south west of Basingstoke in Hampshire, UK. It lies alongside the A303 road.

The airfield has two grass runways, designated 08/26 and 03/21. Light aircraft maintenance facilities, aircraft hire and flight training on microlight and light aircraft is available from AirBourne Aviation Ltd.

Popham Airfield runs many different events over the year, including the Microlight trade fair in May, the annual Motorcycle Mega Meet & Vintage Aircraft Fly-in in August and the New Year's Day Fly-in.


Includes:

  • Completely overhauled airport from scratch
  • Added taxiways as close to aerial footage as possible
  • Runway terraforming to match the hill in real-life (I've never been there so I've made a best effort based on photos)
  • Custom model for green hangars
  • Lots of other hand placed stock scenery buildings and objects.
  • Ground ATC
  • Removed 8 storey high autogen building on 26 approach
  • Replaced petrol station and local yard with stock buildings and containers

Install:

Extract the "gobby-popham" folder to your /Community/ folder.

Note:

  • The water tower at the end of runway 26 isn't very close to real-life, but its the closest i could find in the stock object library.
  • I have not included all the colour variations of the green hangars.

Thank you so much for this. The airfield looks great. Such a shame that ASOBO do not allow the grass to be cut shorter. Makes taxiing on grass strips tricky. If you ever do an update, +1 for higher grain silos to the west as already requested.

I have to say Gobby - fantastic work on the BBD version of Popham. It's outstanding. Well done and much kudos - all that time spent at the end of 23 has paid off!

Hey Gobby, I saw Gobby55 at Popham today. Wondered if that was you testing an update? Hint, hint 😉
Popham is one of my favourite places to fly from (and to). The circuit patterns for noise abatement make it more interesting than flying standard patterns. A few aircraft in the hangars area at the back would be nice 😊
Thanks for the windsock. A very important addition as it allows you to line it up over the white arrow for a perfect arrival on R26 !
The only issues I have are - can the water tower be on a stand as it sits at approx 30' high. And a few hundred yards beyond R26 there are half a dozen tall grain silos which we also use to position for R08 for noise abatement.
I'm enjoying Popham. Can't see any wind socks though. Are they intended to be included?
Apologies. The white arrow is there. Strange I couldn't see it before.
Figured it out. Stars weren't working cos it was being shown as not downloaded even though I had.
Wanting to add my 5 star rating but can't see how to do that. What am I missing?
Thank you very much for this. Popham is one of my favourite places to fly from. Can I ask that the white arrow on the angled approach to runway 26 be included please, this to be flown over to avoid flying over the petrol station. See these links:

Fantastic work. Popham was so disappointing in the alpha/beta. It's lovely to see it given life now, thank you.
Fantastic, thanks very much
Hello - many thanks for this scenery ! Is there a way to remove the long , tufty grass so that the grass runway part of the airfield is 'cut'?
Great start , hopefully you will review and get the petrol stations in place and the cafe and tower sorted. Such a lovely airfield.
Wow, that's quick. TYVM!
Great job if you are going to do an update with Super spuds petrol station and water tower would you consider the post and rail fencing round the flight line and events field that would add to the character. Fairoaks would be nice,
Thank you! May I humbly ask if you would consider revisiting EGTF Fairoaks?
Looks really great. I used to go to the fly-ins here (by car) and it's looking very realistic. They never had all those green fronted barns before - must go back again.
Thanks for doing this.
I did a quick scenery fix version of this for someone and was hoping somebody else would do a proper job of it. If you're interested gibraltarbuilding16 is a petrol station. I lashed up a water tower from seattle_building29 downscaled massively and partially buried and telluride_tank downscaled and raised in the air https://imgur.com/a/q7slIxk
