Former Turbulent Designs Idaho Falls Now Available via Orbx

Orbx Kida Idaho Falls (7)

Since the announcement that Turbulent Designs would be partnering up with Orbx, the team have worked quickly on bringing their past products to FTX Central and the Orbx store. Today, the latest product from the Turbulent team is now available via Orbx. Idaho Falls (KIDA) was released for FSX/P3D a while back, but now users can find a new and improved version via Orbx.

This version of Idaho Falls Regional Airport comes complete with huge amounts of 60cm/pixel coverage, as well as plenty of points of interest for you to explore and enjoy. Because the team are now working with Orbx, users can enjoy a mix of the use of Real Flora tech from Turbulent Designs along with the Orbx Flow technology to really enhance their experience.

As previously announced, you can transfer your Turbulent Design’s license information over to Orbx so those users can enjoy it free of charge. However, if you have yet to buy it, then you can purchase it for$32.95AUD. As of today (13th August), users can enjoy an additional 10% off the asking price as part of the Freezing Hot Summer sale. You can always read our review on the product if you’re unsure. Spoiler alert: we loved it.

There’s also an X-Plane version of this scenery, which we imagine will be ported over at some point to Orbx. In the mean time, you can buy it via Turbulent Design’s website.

It’s worth noting that if you want to use the product, you have to purchase Central Rockies Orbx region. It’s also discounted (50%) during the current sale.
