We're heading to North England with Orbx

Written by JetStream Radio Events on June 26, 2020 at 11:21 AM UTC

With the world being in the situation that it is one thing for sure is that we can always count on Orbx producing high-quality content and their latest project for Prepar3D is a perfect example of that. The future destination is Newcastle International Airport with the ICAO of EGNT. The Airport is located north of University City of Newcastle Upon Tyne in the North East of England. The area has a rich history which some of you may know already but it was once an industrial superpower during the famous Shipbuilding era. However, if you’re to visit now it is now a buzzing cultural hub.

The Airport is really an exciting place to be since 5 million visitors each year pass-through the doors embarking on narrow-body leisure routes to Las Palmas & Santorini and long-haul visits to Dubai in a 777-300ER. Or if you’re more of a cargo pilot, like myself, you can pop over to the southern apron and handle some cargo flight under various well-known companies, Emirates SkyCargo, FedEx, etc. There is a plentiful supply of airlines who operate routes to and from Newcastle with some of those well-known lines being Aer Lingus Regional, British Airways, easyJet, Emirates, Eurowings, KLM, Lufthansa, Ryanair and many more. So if you’re wanting something with a regional feel but with the same buzz as an international feel then this is the place to be, especially since it would be good fun trying to land those heavy aircraft on its 7,600ft runway especially in the typical rainy weather of North England.
