About

Background:

Coventry Airport for MSFS by MT Scenery Design is the most detailed scenery depiction of Coventry Airport (EGBE) to have ever been available for any simulator. Starting off as a lockdown project in November 2020, with the intention of placing down the main airport buildings to improve the overall look of the airfield, the project has completely transformed the airport and it’s surrounding area.

This project stemmed from an in-development project that ceased for FSX back in 2015/16. Drew, the amazing collaborator for this project had been working on an airport scenery package for Coventry, which had never made it past the modelling stage. With the introduction of the new MSFS, and the great capabilities that came with its SDK, we have worked hard to put out this great scenery package for you all to enjoy. Countless hours have been spent in front of my computer screen since late 2020 perfecting this to be as realistic as possible!

Features:

-        Completely accurate representation of airport and surroundings.

-        Highly detailed and accurately modelled buildings and objects.

-        Custom ground markings.

-        Photoreal textures for signage/objects.

Installation:

Copy the contents of the .zip file to your MSFS/Community Folder.

Important notice:

Since 2017, Coventry Airport has experienced great change in its layout of buildings surrounding the airport, as a result, the scenery is modelled on what the airfield looked like circa 2018. In future, there will be 3 different offerings

-        Circa 2018 (Current Build): This has all the airport’s buildings in place, but does not include the South Apron and terminal, which was demolished mid-2017.

-        Circa 2015 (Future Build): This layout will include the South Apron and Terminal. The ground layout and markings are complete, but more reference imagery needs to be found to model the terminal before I consider this to be in a releasable state.

-        Circa 2022 (Future Build): Once Bing Maps receives an update for the underlying satellite imagery of the airport site, I will include the new bypass road, which consequently removes a few buildings. This will represent the airport in its most current real-life state.

Support:

This scenery is not complete, and will be updated once major bugs/features are added, due to the large file size I will not be updating every day or so, more like every few weeks, or more urgently should a major bug come up.

Please get in touch with me via Flightsim.to or a comment on the file if you have any issues with the scenery and I will do my best to help with any bugs you may have.

Amazing - I'd been following your progress on it off and on as Coventry is one of my local airports.

Didn't realise you were going to make it freeware instead of payware but thank you very much for making it freeware!!.

Absolutely outstanding. My cousin used to fly from the Coventry Aeroplane Club, many happy times flying with him. Now we have an accurate representation of Coventry I can re-live some of those flights. Have been looking forward to this for a long time, thank you.

I have just enjoyed flying up from Southampton and spent a happy 20 minutes exploring all of the fine detail around this airport - clearly a labour of love!

Well done and thanks for all of the hard work. I must visit the real airport now!

Thank you for this absolutely stunning scenery! I can almost watch Buffalo Joe browsing around in garbage bins for DC3 parts. Now all we need is a decent Electra for those Atlantic guys...

Wow! The quality of your work is outstanding! 10/10!!!

I'm waiting for someone to do my local airport, Swansea EGFH on the beautiful Welsh Gower. I've just recently started flying lessons there and am desperate to have a decent version of it. Are you interested?

All the best!

Dazzy.

Nice airport. A keeper for me. I was hoping someone would do Coventry as it was my first landing away from base when I was learning to fly ITRW (EGBJ). I have photogrammetry and landmarks for the City, but hoping someone might do some photo for the area surrounding the Airport. Many thanks for your hard work.
