Last minute Orbx sale purchase recommnedations for FSX and V2.x/3.x

Recommended Posts

I picked up 6 new airports this morning, to take advantage of that great 35% off in prices.

 

Here is a first shot of my start to taxi out of PAGS Gustavus, in South Alaska

After having toured each of the other 5 purchases, including as a total of 6, with PAGS above,  this morning, I do recommend the following as viewed-and-approved for visuals and Orbx features:

 

2: NAW16 Monroe

 

3: KRDD Redding

 

4: PAYA Yakutat

 

5: KBLU-Blue Canyon

 

6: KSFF- Felts Field

 

All of these are very much worth the asking price up until Dec 31/2015

 

All of the six airports came to around $118.00 AUS.  If you are from the U.S., your final tally will be about 40 percent lower on your bill.  If you are in Canada, then it will be just below your present par...so that also is a great thing for Canadians, who are getting a real beating in the US exchange rates right now.  

 

So...there you have it...

 

Happy Holidays, all!

Nice shots.  I also need to purchase some airports during their sale.

The last shot (and added shots as my initial explore flight progresses) shows me doing a fly over of PAGS Gustavus. The area covered is very well developed...(I love anything done in the South Alaska region!),

 

and the other 5 I have mentioned also are very good flight bang-for-the-buck!

 

So..for a U.S. resident, it would be about $65.00 at present on their C.C. bill for what I have suggested and highlighted after your C.C. company converts from AUS to USF.

 

For Canadians, slightly lower than the $118.00 AUS, I mentioned...but not any higher, on their C.C. bill next month!  All good stuff...

All the mentioned six airports have the 'Ses stamp of approval'...and are good to go....

 

FLyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, baby...flyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy~! :dance:

Ses, just asking for some advice. I already have

 

NA:Gold Northern California

NA:Palm Springs

NA:Monterey Regional

NA:Blue USA/Canada Pacific Fjords

NA: Blue USA/Canada Pacific Northwest

 

the airports you have listed, will they in any way clash or overlay these above?

 

Thanks.

HECK NO!

 

What I suggest, is to go to The FlightSim Store..and look up all of the above...read their presentation pages...and you will be well informed of what they offer..and what region they reside in. That's what I did..and as you see, the rest is flight history...

 

You do need South Alaska Region though for at least two on my suggested list, and that is a MUST HAVE in my books!

 

Cheers, and Happy Holidays!

My final before shutting down for Christmas Eve preps...

 

I hope everybody gets well represented under the family Christmas Tree tomorrow....

I just got PAGS in the sale, still sitting on the fence about KSFF because it's currently P3Dv1 only.  Plus I just plunked down 200 AUS/CDN for SA, NR, PAGS, YBRM, YMML (v2), Fall City, and YSCH.  Hence the fence sitting ;-)

I really like KSFF...and use it in FSX. Looks great!

 

They are supposed to bring all of ORBX into the P3D v2.x and 3.x fold. So...if you also use FSX.x...you can enjoy it now.  Like I said..all of these airports and area locations...are just top notch.  I've been flying through them,  all morning... :)

Likewise to you too.

 

I'm sure I'll enjoy them having seen your great shots. Looking forward to using my newly-acquired A2A's.

 

All The Best for 2016.

I like those Alaskan airfields, too!

 

Some other suggestions, or what I picked up:

 

Sedona, great short trip from Phoenix, these canyons look awesome, 

Redding great trip from KSFO,

Murray Field short hop from Redding, beautiful coast line,

Pago Pago, cool for Island hopping

 

Happy new year!

Ah, that`s why the Flightsimstore page is so slow :).

Just bought Southern Alaska, Yakutat and Homer.

Does anyone know if Gustavia and Kenai will also get P3D 3.0 updates ?
