EGCB Manchester City Airport and Heliport (Barton)

for X-Plane 11

This airport, developed by the legendary Tony Wroblewski, has been created in painstaking detail for X-Plane 11 with the utmost attention to detail and accuracy based on hundreds of photos and several on-site visits to the airport. The airfield is depicted as it was in late 2017 and includes a large area of photoreal imagery and our new autogen technology being developed for X-Plane.

Manchester City Airport and Heliport (also known as Barton Aerodrome) is situated just 5NM from Manchester city centre and is a busy and popular airfield for GA traffic visiting the area. It also contains many flight schools and is a hive of activity, frequently visited by the public. We welcome Tony to the Orbx family and look forward to exciting things in X-Plane.

As we do not currently have a version of FTX Central available for Linux or MacOS, you will see a CROSS-PLATFORM DOWNLOAD option in your account. This is a simple zip that you can extract into X-Plane 11 in the mean time until FTX Central is available for those other platforms.
