Turbulent Designs, the developer of many of the flight simulation community’s most popular airport scenery expansions, including Melbourne, Friday Harbor and other major releases for ORBX, are releasing their latest airport, Angwin! The stunning airport is available now in a single installer for both Flight Simulator X and Prepar 3D.
If that is not enough, the amazingly talented team at Turbulent have donated the entire airport to the Flight Angels cause. EVERY single copy sold of Angwin Airfield will directly go to the children, now and in to the future. “We really care about the cause”, said Trevor Linn, CEO of Turbulent, “and we wanted to do something really special, so we have created a fabulous showcase airport purely with the aim of raising money for the kids. It features our whole new Real Flora technology that is already taking flight simulation by storm with massive community response to our previews!”
Angwin will be sold directly from the Turbulent website at www.turbulentdesigns.co.uk during the course of Flight Angels 2016, for only £4.99 ($7 USD approx.). “It’s a high definition full price airport”, said Trevor, “but we wanted to really make it available to everyone for this great cause and we hope people pick up a copy to support Flight Angels, whilst also enjoying the craftsmanship that went in to this product” After the Flight Angels event, Angwin will shortly go in to general distribution throughout the industry, led by Keystone, the charity focused publishing company founded by industry veteran Jane Whittaker. “We are putting Angwin out for worldwide retail and we are thrilled to think that all the revenue will support sick children. Every sale from every website and store will support the children! Please give generously. It’s not hard to do so with such a groundbreaking product on offer. It is already my favourite airport in FSX” said Jane.Once Flight Angels is over, this stunning airport will also be available directly from Just Flight at www.justflight.com
