About

George Best Belfast City Airport (ICAO: EGAC) is a single-runway airport in Belfast, Northern Ireland. It is adjacent to the Port of Belfast and is 3 miles (5 km) from Belfast City Centre. It shares the site with the Short Brothers/Bombardier aircraft manufacturing facility. The airport began commercial operations in 1983, and was known as "Belfast City Airport" until it was renamed in 2006 in memory of George Best, the legendary professional footballer.

I started this project in 2019, sometime after uploading my Eglinton FSX scenery, and have been working on it, at times, since then.  Custom building models, models, textures and materials created by me, Jerome Logue.  I have used the excellent Asobo Jetway for Belfast City Airport's Gate 4, and a few sparse sections of Asobo fence.  I used ScruffyDuck Software's excellent ADE, to help properly adjust the Airport layout in MSFS Developer Mode.  I had created several tall Belfast building models, athough have decided to leave them out, as there seems to be some great freeware Belfast City Scenery available on this site, which I haven't had a chance to download/try out yet, so this release is designed to be used with the default MSFS scenery.

Hopefully you will enjoy this freeware rendition of George Best Belfast City Airport.

Installation: Place the folder (jeromelogue-airport-egac-belfast) contained within the PackagesContent folder within the zip, into your MSFS Community folder.

(edit: ground vehciles now present...functionality still be to be implemented...using default Asobo vehicles..trying to get them to work the way they used to....another update incoming soon-ish)...

v1.01 corrects the apron that looked stripey in certain lighting conditions and also corrects the night-time illumination of some of the airport gate signs....

v1.02 corrects airport ground services not working properly, and has a slightly improved floodlight model.

v1.03 allows connection of airstairs (Ramp Connection) at Gates 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and has been compiled with latest version of SDK.

v1.04 makes airstairs less likely to behave erratically.

v1.05 is compiled with the latest version of the MSFS SDK, for compatibilty with MSFS Sim Update 5 Hotfix 1.18.15.0

v1.06 floodlights fixed and an erroneous very tall default autogen building removed from Belfast Harbour area

v1.07 removes duplicated PAPI lights!
PAPI lights should now appear in the correct real world locations.

v1.08 a few minor improvements to various buildings. (also hotfix to previous v1.08 just uploaded - strange Bombardier texture adjusted).

1.08 Hotfix2 Bombardier textures now corrected, as intended peviously.

v1.09 fixes an ILS and G/S capture issue - ILS and G/S capture now works correctly again.

v1.10 compiled with the latest SDK for Sim Update 6 compatibility

v1.11 compiled with the latest SDK for Sim Update 7 compatibility

v1.12 partially restores functionality and availability of airport ground vehicles...still work in progress...(edit: ground vehciles now present...functionality still be to be implemented...using default Asobo vehicles..trying to get them to work the way they used to....another update incoming soon-ish)...

v1.13 Asobo's excellent default airport ground services now available again

v1.14 compiled with the latest SDK for Sim Update 8 compatibility

v1.15 compiled with the latest SDK for Sim Update 9 compatibility

v1.16 improves the way AI traffic operates at the airport...still working on this...

v1.17 another small update to AI traffic taxipaths - (this version has been re-updated to correct v1,17)

v1.18 compiled with the latest SDK for Sim Update 10 compatibility

I will be working on improving the models in this scenery, probably after I've further completed a few other MSFS freeware projects.

Hi, like many other I have been using this scenery since you released it. Thank you.

I would like to suggest you maybe team up with the other developer making EGAC as well. They have modelled in the surrounding airport parking etc which does add another level of detail. I know I should not but I run both airports together to try get the best of both but its not great. I wont mention the other developer here.

Top quality! THanks

love this scenery, but version 1.13 not working for me when trying to inject using Addons Linker? version 1.12 is fine and have reverted to this one for now.

Excellent work Jerome, been using this for a long time and had to leave a review. Making flights to and from the North even better. Great work.

Excellent work on the ground vehicles, thank you

Love it, great job!

Does anybody happen to know if this version of EGAC is compatible with the Belfast city photogrammetry addon (https://flightsim.to/file/6600/belfast )?

Amazing work but would it be possible to update from Bombardier to Spirt aero systems. Their logo is now on the buildings once owned by Bombardier.

Nice work, just a minor thing but there seems to be two sets of PAPIs on the 04 side of the runway. Is there meant to be two? I found it quite confusing on approach

so is this working now with SU5?

Love this proper representation of EGAC, being a local its very close to the real thing, only thing i can say is that after sim update 5 it crashes my sim as soon as i taxi might be worth looking into! other than that i couldn't ask for more great job thanks!

Very nice airport, taxi lines, gates numbers are awesome, however since World update III Samson and Goliath and Titanic Building are duplicate. Is there a way to remove your 2 landmarks (Microsoft ones are better)?
Stunning work, thank you!
Nice work!
Have you thought anout adding the Tyato vending machines at the front of the terminal building?
Another nice addition to my airport collection..many thanks 😊
So this scenery is really good, thanks man. But I got a little probem with some terrain spikes nearby, any ideas how to fix it?
Hi,
very nice. Like the terminal building. Have you thought about combining your efforts with superspud and tamalien. They already have a nice EGAC published here. But without the terminal building.
https://flightsim.to/file/6517/egac-belfast-city-airport
this is really good. Could you do the international next please?
First class 😊 The taxi way in front of the airport is very bumpy, not sure if that's just me? Might need to delete my rolling cache, or might be that I have Belfast scenery installed. Will have to investigate further.
Any plans on doing Aldergrove? 😊
Thank you for the great scenery.
