Located in an idyllic rural location on the west coast of Wales, EGCK Caernarfon is an ideal base for exploring the North Wales coast and the stunning Snowdonia National Park. EGCK has been designed to blend in and work seamlessly with Microsoft Flight Simulator and the UK World Update.

 

EGCK is a general aviation airport and search & rescue base located just 7.4km southwest from the town of Caernarfon with its historic castle and town centre. Serving as a base for the Welsh Search and Rescue and air ambulance, it is also host to several flying schools and offers tourists scenic flights over Snowdonia national park and beyond. Being just a short flight from the major city urban areas around Liverpool and Manchester, the airfield offers a great escape into the Welsh mountains and is an ideal base for exploring Wales and the north of England. For those more adventurous types, why not hop in a fighter jet and give the famous mach loop a try.

 

Created by Orbx developer Tony Wroblewski, the entire airfield has been modelled in superb detail from extensive real-world photography and numerous site visits offering unmatched realism and accuracy. The airport and all the recent extensions and new buildings 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.

 

Features

 

  • Bespoke hand-painted ground textures for the immediate airport area
  • Dynamic people and animals that will change based on time of year and day.
  • High definition, hand-crafted 30cm/px imagery for the surrounding area
  • Custom and unique built ground vehicles and aircraft
  • Accurately and superbly modelled buildings
  • Detailed 3D fencing, signage and equipment
  • High definition hand-crafted PBR materials for the airport buildings
  • Historic RAF Llandwrog buildings
  • Surrounding POIs such as Morfa Holiday Park, Fort Belan and farmland buildings
  • Optimized for best performance and works seamlessly with World Update 3 and our UK North POI region.

    Did someone just let the cat out of the bag on a, as yet unannounced, new product? ;)
    Great news about both this small airfield scenery and a POI region!

    What I am loving most here are the nice surprises. Many Airports are being announced that aren’t revealed in the roadmap. I love that Orbx have held back some surprises to keep us on our toes. Both Caernarfon and Shoreham are two of my all time favourites from XPlane, so it’s amazing to see announcements over last couple of days for MSFS. The discounts are the icing on the cake thank you. Day one purchases for me.

    What @Gulfstreamtwosaid above :)

     

    In my defence (though not really, I should just read slower :)), the What we're working on - Orbx 2021 Roadmap, was a long old post!
    For me, there are some very interesting products in the Orbx development pipeline. Look foward to their releases when they are ready.
