GayaSimulations has been working on flight simulation content for a long time. Starting of their publishing with Aerosoft on the beginning, they moved to Orbx later on. They were one of the first developer to announce their intentions for the new simulator. For Gaya, these were ambitious. They would bring out their entire P3D Catalogue for MSFS as well. That’s not all, because some days later, they announced that their first project for MSFS natively would be Zell am See (LOWZ), an airport hidden in the Austrian alps and sitting on the side of lake Zell.
It was announced that this first product would release on the 18th, the day of release and they have delivered. GayaSimulations Zell am See is the first GayaSim scenery to hit the MSFS market and is the third developer to release an airport for the new simulator. The team has opted to release their sceneries both on the in-sim Marketplace and on the Orbx store. Several developers have done this already, presumably because of the margins the Marketplace charges.
Zell am See is a small GA airport in Zell am See, Austria. Even though the town itself isn’t big, it does serve as a transportation hub for the region. It’s also a touristic hotspot. This does not reflect in the airport operations, however. The maximum tonnage for LOWZ is 5.7 tonnes. There are no scheduled flights operating to or from this airport, but as the new MSFS has a large variety of GA aircraft, that is no problem.
You can buy GayaSimulations Zell am See on Orbx for $20.70AUD (approx. $14.99USD). The MSFS Marketplace is currently unavailable. We will update this post when it is available.
