    X-Plane 11.51

    X-Plane 11.51 is an incremental bug-fix patch update to X-Plane 11.50. It also adds 387 airports that did not exist in the 11.50 release, and 1885 that have improved scenery.

    Known Bugs

      I noticed an improvement in frame rate with Vulkan, but I don't have a very good GPU for thorough testing. For instance, I can't run the Zibo 737. I won't be able to upgrade it for a few months yet.
