News! - REP for Carenado Bonanza A33F XP11


You may have noticed I didn't mention anything of the SimCoders REP (Reality Expansion Pack) for the Bonanza F33A XP11 in my comprehensive review of the release of the X-Plane11 version? That is because at that point in time the REP pack was only for the X-Plane10 version of the aircraft.




Fear not as the XP11 REP version is now available for the new F33A Bonanza...


First point to make is that this updated REP pack is an Initial release and not an upgrade, but for previous owners of the F33A REP package you can get a 60% saving on the new XP11 price of US$19.99. There is a coupon code in your original REP F33 XP10 invoice in your X-Plane.OrgStore account to use that offer.
