Southampton EGHI is a strange, poorly designed airport in real life. With taxiways part way down one side of the runway but not at either end, aircraft have to taxi along the runway and use bays at each end to turn around. So it is a limited airport in real life and this impacts on what can be done in FX11. Ai don’t like this peculiar taxi arrangement at all for example.
Pilot plus have more than made up for the airports shortcoming however with lots of detail including surrounding buildings, marshals at parking stands, and some animated vehicles moving around to add some life.
Night lighting is excellent and the aprons are littered with little features from crates to cones, barriers and all manner of baggage handling facilities. Flybe Coaches are included although one slight issue is that the logo on one side of the coach is backwards.
Its a nice addition to Xplane 11 and well worth having.

This was a renewal of the original version and therefore was as expected great.
