USS Lexington, nicknamed "Lady Lex", was the name ship of her class of two aircraft carriers built for the United States Navy during the 1920s. Originally designed as a battlecruiser, she was converted into one of the Navy's first aircraft carriers during construction to comply with the terms of the Washington Naval Treaty of 1922. The ship entered service in 1928 and was assigned to the Pacific Fleet for her entire career. Lexington participated in World War II, sinking during the Battle of the Coral Sea. We have created an accurate representation of USS Lexington functional with any aircraft on MSFS.


Out of the box, the product includes 9 static, spawnable locations. This means that the carriers do not move (MSFS limitation), and flights can be started from the carrier. The carrier will be visible as a starred scenery on your MSFS map. We have created custom ICAOs for the different locations:

  • CV201: Pearl Harbor

  • CV202: South East from Oahu

  • CV203: Wake Island

  • CV204: Coral Sea

  • CV205: Midway Atoll

  • CV206: San Diego

  • CV207: Panama Canal

  • CV208: English Channel

  • CV209: North Sea


  • Our product currently has a few limitations to take into consideration due to the current state of MSFS's SDK.

  • Carriers are all static objects.

  • Airports have fixed coordinates.

  • The product does not have animations. This means that the aircraft elevators do not move.

  • The carriers have uncontrolled ATC. There is an ATC frequency for each, but these work as an uncontrolled airport (UNICOM). AI traffic does not visit this airport anyways.

  • Carrier operations are basic. Do not expect carrier personnel to interact with the aircraft.
