Located southwest of London between Chobham and Chertsey in Surrey, Fairoaks is a general aviation airport operated by Fairoaks Operations Ltd.

Fairoaks opened as a private airstrip in 1931, but was used by the military from 1936 and became RAF Fairoaks during World War II. It was used as a training airfield, with No. 18 Elementary & Reserve Flying School equipped with De Havilland Tiger Moths. 6,000 pilots were trained at the airfield. In 1968 the Alan Mann Group took control of the airfield, later constructing the hard runway in 1979.

In 2015, it was announced that the airport would be closed to build a 1,500 unit housing development to be known as "Fairoaks Garden Village". This has resulted in a years-long battle to save this historic airport. On 15 February 2022, the original control tower was decommissioned, being replaced by a temporary control room provided by Helipad Aviation Services located adjacent to taxiway B. Recent works to the west side of the airport, have also put taxiway A out of action.

Fairoaks Airport has been accurately recreated by Burning Blue Design's modellers and coders with on-site visits, and features:

  • Over 80 custom 3D objects have been created exclusively for Fairoaks airport, each with full Physical Based Rendering (PBR) textures.
  • Based on visits in 2022.
  • Includes 'temporary' control tower adjacent to taxiway B.
  • High resolution colour corrected ground textures.
  • Working custom Windsocks.
  • Open hangar parking and café interiors.
  • Two Isuzu TACR3 Fire Trucks with accurate liveries.
  • Also included is 'Firebird 3', in honour of the retired Ford F-150 which was based at Fairoaks until 2019.
  • Dynamic scenery and lighting, which change realistically depending on the time of day and weather.
  • Correct Tower frequency, AI pattern procedures and accurate taxiway placement. (Taxiway A has been left active to reflect a fully operational airport)
  • McLaren Technology Centre and Production Centre POI.
