UNITED KINGDOM – Soarfly Concepts has released EGPR, Barra Airport for FSX and Prepar3D. The scenery is offered completely free of charge and features HD ground imagery, photoscenery of the surrounding area, sculpted terrain, 3D grass, enhanced AFCAD, a beach platform, and accurately marked runways.
For those unfamiliar with the location, the airport is a STOL facility situated in the wide shallow bay of Traigh Mhòr at the northern tip of the island of Barra in Scotland. Famously, Barra is the only (scheduled) commercial airport in the world using a beach as a runway. According to the developer, “The three runways at the airport are designated by wooden poles at either end and sometimes get washed under the tide.”
