    Paris-Ile de France VFR 3DA for P3Dv4


    The new VFR Regional series was designed and developped to provide VFR flight an environment as realistic as possible. It is the result of years of experience and practice in flight simulation and 3D modeling.

    "VFR Regional" products embed all enhancements from the new 3DAutomation® technology developed by France VFR. This technology already allows to generate the most realistic and dense environments ever seen. It does not intend to model real world accurately but to create a copy "as real as it gets" on a massive scale. It will evolve to adapt to the needs and new data available.

    This scenery is full compatible P3Dv4 64 bits with specific installer and is compiled in 64 bits format.

    Here are the specifications :

    - Ground textures 0.5 meter / pixel resolution from IGN aerial photography reworked for an optimal visual rendition in Prepar3D®  (summer only).
    - Dedicated mesh with high definition 4.75 meters (LOD13).
    - Lakes and rivers with navigable waters fitting the texture.
    - Transparency management of the seabed on the entire scene.
    - Semi-detailed generic airports including flatten platform correction.
    - Obstacles and VFR landmarks modeled on the entire scene including the official SIA database (antennas, towers, water towers, wind turbines, various constructions ...).
    - Hundreds of thousands of objects and notable buildings integrated into the environment (churches, power plants, silos, castles, industrial tanks, bridges, tolls, cranes, boats, streetlights, road signs ...).
    - Integration of 3D Automation® technology allowing multi-million buildings and realistic vegetation areas fitting geographic specs.
    - Extremely dense and optimized vegetation coverage using a custom rendering module controlled by artificial intelligence (AI).
    - Autogen buildings including additional specific and optimized 3D variations.
    - Geo-referenced data for maximum compatibility with future add-ons installed on the same area.
    - Development process 100% Lockheed Martin® SDK specifications compliant, ensuring maximum compatibility with new releases.

    Flight1 G500/600 Complete Edition Released


    Flight One Software is proud to announce the release of G500/600 Complete Edition for Lockheed Martin Prepar3d v3, v4, and Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Steam Editions.  Following the successful and highly acclaimed Flight1 GTN series gauges, Flight1 has faithfully replicated the G500/G600 to pixel by pixel accuracy of its real-world counterpart. And for the first time in the history of Flight Simulator and Prepar3D virtual pilots can experience first-hand Synthetic Vision Technology. No matter if you fly around New York on a sunny day or land in Innsbruck under IFR conditions, with Synthetic Vision you always get a clear picture of mountains and other obstacles. The G500/G600 is the perfect companion for your Flight1 GTN 650 and GTN 750.
    The real-world G500/G600 replaces the old steam gauges that can be found in many general aviation aircrafts with a state of the art glass cockpit. It can be retrofitted in a wide array of aircrafts, from single engine piston up to twin turbine aircraft. As all primary flight and navigation information are clearly displayed on two LCD displays, it greatly enhances situational awareness, safety and pilot workload reduction. It is also very customizable and features revolutionary <b>Synthetic Vision Technology</b>. Synthetic Vision recreates a visual topographic landscape from the G500/G600 system's terrain database. Thereby, offering pilots a supplemental 3D depiction of ground and water, airports, obstacles and traffic.
    The Flight1 G500/600 offers smooth framerate performance with its high-resolution PFD/MFD backlit display simulation.  The product also includes SafeTaxi and FliteCharts support, which gives you detailed airport information and terminal procedure charts (US Only).   High resolution terrain maps with TAWS-B audible alerts and Full WAAS approach support is also included.
    The G500/600 Series Gauge Configuration Utility allows users to install and configure the G500/600 unit in their selected aircraft using our easy-to-use gauge configuration utility software. Both gauges are highly customizable, with many features that can be turned on or off or adjusted to suit the user's preference.  The avionics suite features a growing list of native support, including Alabeo aircraft, and from additional third-party aircraft creators and The G500/600 can integrate, as a pop-up, with all add-on aircraft in your Flight Simulator X / Prepar3D library, if the aircraft does not have VC integration.  
    For more information, screenshots, a first look video, and to purchase this great avionics package, please visit the G500/600 Complete Edition  product page .
