A detailed scenery mod covering Gloucestershire Airport (EGBJ) for Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) 2020 release.  This scenery replaces the default Microsoft offering (if one exists) within the sim.

Overview of Gloucestershire Airport (EGBJ) in the simulator after the mod was installed.The scenery features hand-placed and custom-modeled buildings (40 hangars) all based on real-world EGBJ.  The developer lives in close proximity to the airport so is very familiar with it and has the knowledge and experience to craft a very accurate virtual rendition.

Developer's description

Below is the official description released by the developer for this file.

'The Southwest's Premier General Aviation Airport' and my home airport, I live by the side of the 04 final approach track.

Located near Gloucester and Cheltenham in the heart of the Cotswolds in the UK the Gloucestershire airport is central to the stunning scenery of Gloucestershire and has an active and thriving aviation community. It is home to a number of flying schools and other aviation businesses.

This scenery mod brings forty custom hanger models to MSFS duplicating the real-world buildings and airport layout. 09/27 and 04/22 are the active runways, the 18/36 runway is now closed and used as a taxiway. There is a grass runway parallel to the main 04/22 runway (04R/22L).

My thanks go to Highflyer525 for permission to use some of his work and to Alex S for updated information on the airport.

Installation

Simply extract the downloaded archive and copy/move the pbk-gloucester-egbj folder which is inside the Scenery folder into your MSFS community folder.

Excellent rendition of Gloucestershire Airport or Staverton as it's known to us locals. I love flying into places I know, it enhances the experience of flight simulation 10-fold. We'll done to the developer.

I usually buy my stuff from proprietary vendors but a friend sent me a flier from Fly Away simulations and seeing Gloucester Airport thought I would give freeware a try. Installed to a separate folder and extracted. As suggested in the read me installed the pbk file into my community folder with no problem. Started MSFS and in updates see Gloucester. Clicked to install and a window appears "Waiting". No installation occurred. Nothing was mentioned in the readme about this. Still, worth the try.
