In this release you get two Massachusetts airports; Plum Island Airport (2B2) in Newburyport. and Minute Man Air Field (6B6) in Stow.
Plum Island Airport lies along the far northern coast of the state. The island is a stretch of sand that’s home to a small community of year-rounders and a few summer folk. The lower three-quarters of the island comprises the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge. The airport sits wedged between the Merrimack river estuary and a wide stretch of salt marsh. It's the oldest operational airport in New England, having been in services since the 1920's, and is full of its own brand of quirky charm. Why are boats and construction equipment parked on the fenced-off end of the runway? Let's just call it a neighborly feud.
A leisurely GA flight from Plum Island, you'll find Minute Man Air Field, an active GA airport located in the rolling green hills just west of Boston. The area is steeped in history, including being the site of the opening battle of the American war for independence. Nowadays, the airport is home to over 60 full-time aircraft, and stays busy in the warmer months hosting guest pilots from all over. Chances are, it's not the history they're coming for, though - it's the pie at Nancy's Air Field Cafe.
As we do not currently have a version of FTX Central available for Linux or MacOS, you will see a CROSS-PLATFORM DOWNLOAD option in your account. This is a simple zip that you can extract into X-Plane 11 in the meantime until FTX Central is available for those other platforms.
