Just a few weeks ago, Gaya Simulations released their new scenery, Kos Airport LGKO.

Before the release, the community was able to sign up to receive a coupon code for a free copy of the scenery. That only lasted for 24 hours after release.

Today, Gaya announced that they would be reopening the redemption system for the X-Plane 11 version of the scenery. This will only be open for another 24 hours, and opened Sunday at 19:00 GMT (February 23rd, 2020). The time frame to redeem your code for X-Plane ends at 19:00 GMT on Monday (February 24th, 2020).

To clarify as well, this is for users who already have the coupon code. New users can not receive the code. If you don’t know where your code is, it was sent to the email you signed up with.

Be sure to check out Gaya’s feeds for more information and future posts.
