Orbx announces Caernarfon Airport (EGCK) for XP11

Ed Correia, Orbx Head of Operations, has today announced via the Orbx Forums a rendition of Caernarfon Airport for X-Plane 11. When released, the scenery will feature, for example, 2cm/px ground textures for the airport area, accurately placed buildings or surrounding POIs together with Orbx GB TrueEarth Central compatibility. There is a complete feature list below the screenshots in the post.

Caernarfon (pronounced [KUH] + [NAA] + [VUHN]) (Maes Awyr Caernarfon) is a lovely general aviation airport located right in the heart of Snowdonia, North Wales, in one of the most scenic and popular tourist areas in the UK.

As usual, there is no ETA or pricing details yet, but stay tuned on FSNews for future updates as we will continue covering this subject.

The airport and all the recent extensions and new buildings from summer 2019 have been included ensuring that the airport is as close as possible to the real airport and will remain so for many years to come.
