Review: Orbx FTX: EU EGPB Sumburgh International Airport Scenery for FSX and P3D
If you are looking for a challenging and scenic destination in the UK, you might want to check out Orbx FTX: EU EGPB Sumburgh International Airport Scenery for FSX and P3D. This add-on recreates the main airport serving the Shetland Islands, located on the southern tip of the mainland. The airport features a unique layout with a runway crossing a main road and a helicopter pad on a cliff. The scenery also includes a large photoreal area covering the stunning Fitful Head and surrounding landmarks.
Orbx FTX: EU EGPB Sumburgh International Airport Scenery is the second project from the 29Palms design team, who have previously impressed us with their Southampton Airport. They have taken their skills to a new level with Sumburgh, creating a highly detailed and realistic representation of the airport and its surroundings. The scenery features custom made 1 m terrain and airport mesh, high definition ground polygon, complex car animations in 3D, realistic night lighting, and more. The scenery also comes with the ability to switch between sloped and flat runways, which adds to the realism and challenge of landing at this airport.
To enjoy this scenery to its fullest, you will need Orbx FTX: EU Scotland installed, as it is designed to blend seamlessly with it. However, you can also install it without FTX: EU Scotland, but you will miss some of the features and enhancements that it provides. The scenery is compatible with FSX, FSX: Steam Edition, and all versions of P3D. You can purchase it from the Orbx website for $31.81 AUD (about $23 USD), or get it at a discounted price if you buy it as part of a bundle.

Another attraction of Sumburgh Airport is its proximity to Sumburgh Head, a spectacular cliff-top nature reserve that is home to thousands of seabirds, including puffins, guillemots, razorbills, fulmars, kittiwakes and shags. The reserve is managed by the RSPB and has a visitor centre, a lighthouse and a radar station. The lighthouse was built in 1821 by Robert Stevenson, grandfather of the famous author Robert Louis Stevenson. The radar station was part of the Chain Home Low system that provided early warning of low-flying enemy aircraft during World War II.
Sumburgh Airport also has an interesting history, if necessarily much briefer than most of its neighbours. An aircraft â a De Haviland Dragon Rapide - first landed here on 3 June 1936, piloted by a pioneer of aviation in the Highlands and Islands, Capt. E E Fresson, who had surveyed the site in 1933. The airport was taken over by the Air Ministry in 1939 and underwent major expansion to accommodate RAF aircraft such as Mosquitoes, Hurricanes, Spitfires, Swordfish and Beaufighters. The airport played an important role in coastal raids against Axis shipping off the coast of Norway and in the North Sea. After the war, the airport resumed its civilian operations and became the main gateway to Shetland. In the late 1970s, the airport saw a surge in traffic due to the oil boom and a new terminal was built in 1979. Today, the airport serves several destinations in mainland Scotland as well as Bergen in Norway.
Whether you are visiting Shetland for business or pleasure, Sumburgh Airport is a convenient and scenic place to start your journey. You can easily explore the rich history and wildlife of Sumburgh and its surroundings, or take a short drive to Lerwick and other attractions in Shetland. Orbx FTX: EU EGPB Sumburgh International Airport Scenery will enhance your flight simulation experience and make you feel like you are really there.
