Aerosoft – Newcastle Intl. Airport (EGNT) XP12

And finally the X-Plane 12 version from this English Airport – Newcastle International Airport (EGNT). Available via simMarket and if you have the ‘old’ version X-Plane 11 you are entitled for a free upgrade.

Newcastle International Airport is situated in the area of Newcastle upon Tyne, England, about 6 miles North of the city centre. Newcastle International was rated the 11th busiest airport in the UK, and the second busiest in Northern England, with Manchester coming first, handling over 4.8 million passengers.

The airport is owned by seven local authorities: City of Newcastle, City of Sunderland, Durham County Council, Gateshead MBC, North Tyneside MBC, Northumberland County Council and South Tyneside MBC. Copenhagen Airport sold the stake in Newcastle to AMP Capital, which is an Australian based investment company.

Newcastle airport was opened on 26th July 1935 and was known back then as Woolsington Aerodrome – the airport was opened by Sirt Phillip Cunliffe-Lister, Secretary of State for Air. At this time, the airport consisted of one clubhouse, one hangar, few workshops, a fuel garage and a single grass runway with a building cost of around £35,000.
