Burning Blue Design is extremely proud to release Bodmin Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator

Located in the heart of Cornwall, just off the A30 dual carriageway, Bodmin Airfield is home of the Cornwall Flying Club.

Bodmin Airfield was the development of a dream by local business man, Mike Robertson, founder of Trago Mills, to make aviation available to everyone. In pursuit of this dream, local engineers, The Dingle Brothers were commissioned to construct the airfield on what was once Treswithick Farm. In 1972, the airfield was bought by the Cornwall Flying Club, which, in 1978, became a limited company, Cornwall Flying Club Ltd. In keeping with the original ideals and dreams of its creator, Cornwall Flying Club operates as a non-profit organisation.

It was here that Trago Mills designed and built the Trago Mills SAH-1 in the early 1980s. The SAH-1 derived its name from its designer, Sydney A. Holloway.

The airfield is also home to Cornwall Aviation Services, an aircraft maintenance business.

Bodmin Airfield has been accurately recreated by Burning Blue Design’s modellers and coders with on-site visits, and features: Over 30 custom 3D objects have been created exclusively for Bodmin airfield, each with full Physical Based Rendering (PBR) textures. Realistic dirt, grime, dust and rust can be seen exactly where it should be, with on-site visits carried out by the team. Custom runway terraforming. High resolution colour corrected ground textures. Working custom Signal Square and Windsocks. Control tower and cafe interiors. Open hangar parking spot. Dynamic scenery objects, which change realistically depending on the time of day. Custom aircraft have been included around Bodmin to reflect actual aircraft found at the airfield: Cessna 172 Skyhawk (G-EGLA - Bodmin Airfield Flight Training) Ikarus C42 (G-CIFZ - Air Cornwall Flight School) Correct AI pattern procedures and accurate taxiway placement.
