Welcome to Yorkshire's Airport!


At long last Orbx visits the Midlands with EGNM Leeds Bradford Airport for X-Plane 11, the second product from our UK development in-house team following the high popular EGLC London City Airport. For some time our customers have been asking us to move further north and this project was a delight to work on and has exceed our expectations in terms of its charm and character.


Located at Yeadon, about 7 miles northwest of Leeds and about 9 miles from Bradford, it was opened in October 1931 as Yeadon Aerodrome, and is still often referred to as Yeadon Airport by locals. It is an iconic location set upon a plateau overlooking beautiful English countryside and features a very undulating runway, which is sure to challenge your approaches. It even has its own 6-part reality TV series!


EGNM serves Leeds, Bradford and the wider Yorkshire region including the cities of York and Wakefield, and the District of Harrogate, and is the largest airport within Yorkshire, handling over 4 million passengers in 2018 with nearly 40,000 traffic movements.


This busy airport offers over twenty destinations with the most popular being the Spanish and Portugese seaside and island resorts, Dublin, Amsterdam, Belfast and Heathrow. The two dominant airlines serving the airport are Jet2 and Ryanair but KLM, FlyBe and TUI also provide services. Aircraft types used include B733,738, A320, E190/195, Q400 plus smaller GA and commuter aircraft.


This superb recreation of this characterful airport has full PBR support, great lighting effects on the runway and aprons and is optimised for performance.
