• Orbx Releases Meigs Field For X-Plane 11

    Orbx - KCGX Meigs Field for X-Plane 11

    KCGX - Merrill C. Meigs for X-Plane 11 has been released!

    Let the X-Plane adventure begin!

    Few airports hold as much nostalgia, familiarity, and emotion for aviation enthusiasts. Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, Meigs Field operated as the gateway to corporate Chicago for over half a century. After its closure, Merrill C. Meigs Field (KCGX) had been recreated with the utmost attention to detail and accuracy originally for FSX & P3D and then subsequently Aerofly FS2. Now it's X-Plane's turn! Depicted as it was in its final years, virtual pilots are welcomed to return to what was once the busiest single strip airport in the United States and enjoy it in high definition. Featuring a fully modeled terminal, highly detailed static aircraft, and other historically accurate elements, the airport has been brought back to life. In addition to the airfield itself, the city of Chicago waterfront and parks district has received a facelift to bring the area up to date.

      Fantastic for sure.
      My only disappointment is the price point as no way can I just keep buying airports at that price.
      Since I have purchased licenses for most Orbx products for P3D it would be helpful to have some sort of 'credit' say discount for folks who have already purchases licenses for previous products in other sims.
      Edit.

      Turns out there is a 40% discount, cross platform. One has to log in and check out and the discount is applied.

      Perfect.

      Yes! Meigs was the location where a lot of FS flightsimmers made their training or made it their home base!

      So Orbx buried the hatchet with X-Plane?

      it is pricey seeing that presently the fsx/p3d version is $16 for the exact same thing!
