In an unprecedented move, SimWorks Studios has announced a massive discount on its Zenith CH701 STOL aircraft for Microsoft Flight Simulator during the month of April. The small bush plane is now available for just €2.49, a whopping 90% discount from its usual price of €24.99. This special offer is available on the SimWorks Studios website and is expected to go live in the Marketplace in a few days.
SimWorks Studios has expressed that this is an “experiment in extremely low pricing” to determine how such a discount might impact sales. With the Zenith CH701 STOL’s outstanding performance, visuals, and scenic locations, this limited-time offer provides a unique opportunity for simmers to experience the aircraft at a fraction of the regular cost.
The Zenith CH701 STOL, first introduced in 1986, was designed to fulfill the demanding requirements of sport pilots and first-time builders alike. Known as the “Sky Jeep” among enthusiasts, the aircraft boasts an all-metal construction, fixed leading-edge slats for high lift, full-span flaperons, and an all-flying rudder.
SimWorks Studios’ digital model of the CH701 STOL features an impressive level of detail and accuracy, thanks to factory drawings and realistic flight model, which accurately replicates the aircraft’s renowned STOL performance. The package also includes door and no-door variants in four liveries, a bush trip through New York State, and three airports with custom objects and ground textures (Lufker/Spadaro, Sky Acres, and Roxbury Runway).
It’s quite interesting to see a developer running an experiment such as this, especially when SWS’s products already feature some of the most impressive price/quality ratios we’ve seen in the sim. If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at flying the Zenith CH701 STOL in Microsoft Flight Simulator, now is the perfect time to take advantage of this incredible discount!
