    | 1,773 views

    San Diego, CA – August 29th, 2017 – snakebyte® group, leading innovators of consumer electronics hardware, announced today the Bravo Throttle System with Auto Pilot & Annunciation Panel, a new high-end modular component designed for the flight simulation community and being released under the companies Honeycomb Aeronautical™ brand.
    Complementing the previously announced Yoke & Switch Panel, the new Bravo Throttle System integrates seamlessly with other brands of flight simulation hardware, offering a simple way for enthusiasts to enhance their system without worrying about compatibility issues.
    The Bravo Throttle System has been designed to offer an authentic engine management and avionics system for all forms of aviation. Users can configure the throttle quadrant to virtually any type of aircraft, by configuring it to either single-engine general aviation, multi-engine general aviation, two-engine commercial aviation or four-engine commercial, both with reverse thrusters as well as spoilers and flaps via the included handle kit.
    In addition to the throttle configurations, the Bravo Throttle System features an impressive array of flight controls. Users can utilize the Auto Pilot for cross country flights as well as the Annunciation Panel with 14 warning lights, drawing real-time data from the flight simulation software.
    The integrated gear lever comes complete with indicator lights, and the Boing® 737 style trim wheel, flap toggle controls and an additional seven programmable switches provide aspiring pilots with a plethora of controls at their fingertips.
    “Since announcing the Honeycomb range earlier in the year, we’ve been inundated with support from the simulation community who are crying out for a fresh take on professional quality flight hardware. The Bravo Throttle System has been designed to integrate into the users pre-existing configuration, providing exceptionally authentic controls for commercial or general aviation aircraft,” said Nicki Repenning, CEO of snakebyte USA. “At present, flight enthusiasts have no option but to purchase several costly pieces of equipment separately in order to replicate the controls we feature on a single unit. We strongly believe that we offer better quality, better innovation and better value than alternative hardware and we look forward to unveiling more information in the run up to product launch.
    Honeycomb Aeronautical are in the final development stages of the earlier announced Alpha Flight Controls with expected launch in Q4 2017 and plan for the Bravo Throttle Quadrant to be available shortly after.”
     
    Designed and developed by pilots and flight engineers in California, USA, Honeycomb Aeronautical has engineered its range using genuine aerospace components and the same internal mechanics used in premium certified simulators approved by the FAA for flight training use.

    Following up on the recent GTN Complete release, Flight One Software is proud to announce the release of the Flight1 GNS Complete Edition.  The GNS Complete Edition includes BOTH the GNS 430 and 530 avionics that used to be sold separately, in one package. This new version includes updates allow the avionics package to work with FSX/FSX Steam, Prepar3D v3 and the newly released Prepar3D v4.
    The Flight1 GNS series 430 and 530 gauges feature a high-contrast color display that makes it easy to read and interpret pilot-critical information. Quickly and easily see your position relative to ground features, navaids, flight plan routings, approach procedures and more with Pixel by Pixel Accuracy to the Real World Avionics counterpart.
    The GNS Avionics Series from Flight1 is a step up above other avionics packages out there, in that it doesn't use FSX/P3D internal processes to hinder simulation performance. All avionics data structures, calculations, and processes are done on its own using external processes that are separate from the sim. This allows your simulation experience to run smoother and have minimal frame rate or VAS impact overall.
    The GNS Complete avionics suite includes Built-in terrain and navigation databases provide a clear, concise picture of where you are and where you're heading. The navigation database contains location reference for airports, VORs, NDBs, Intersections, Special Use Airspace and more. A detailed basemap showing airports, cities, highways, railroads, rivers, lakes, coastlines, plus a built-in terrain and U.S. obstacles databases, the GNS series gauges display color coding to graphically alert you when proximity conflicts loom ahead.
    The GNS Complete package also features full WAAS Approach Support to fly LPV Glideslope Approaches, Terrain Proximity Warnings and Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS) alerting, and full COM/NAV Receiver Integration and more.

    Montreal , August 24, 2017 – Canadian developer Xtreme Prototypes announces the release of version 2.1 of its award-winning GLJ Model 25 Special Edition addon for Lockheed Martin® Prepar3D® and Microsoft® Flight Simulator X.
    http://xtremeprototypes.com/en/product_GLJ25_se_v2r1.asp
    This release contains many new features and improvements over the previous version, including a fully redesigned fuel system, an enhanced autopilot, a revised flight model (tested by a real Learjet 25D pilot), new 3D sounds from the real aircraft, an updated 220-page flight manual and a new native version for Prepar3D® v4.x.
    Nicknamed "fighters in civilian clothing" because of their sleek design and amazing performance, the classic Learjet 20 Series aircraft redefined business aviation during the 1960’s and 70’s, flying high above the weather at transonic speeds. Their capabilities earned them a place among the extreme aircraft, setting record after record. With the longer-range Gates Learjet Model 25D, from which this addon is inspired, came a longer cabin, increased seating capacity, more flexible loading options, greater fuel capacity and a rather sleek-looking stretched fuselage.
    The Xtreme Prototypes GLJ Model 25 SE is a next generation addon optimized for the latest versions of our favorite simulation platforms and designed to take advantage of the new and more powerful personal computers and video cards that are available today. It is a complex aircraft simulator that features high resolution models and textures, hundreds of animations, over 50 sound effects, custom aircraft systems, and a fully analog, VR-ready virtual cockpit.
    Nothing was spared in our efforts to reproduce the original instrument panels, carefully modelling and animating each mechanical device with all the necessary moving parts. Except for the GPS screen and optional panels, no flat 2D gauges are used in this model. Everything you see is in full 3D!
    Along with the highly detailed aircraft interior, the full 3D virtual cockpit makes this addon an ideal candidate for new virtual reality applications such as FlyInside®. Equipped with the necessary software and 3D glasses/VR goggles, the desktop pilot really feels he’s/she’s inside the real aircraft, in front of the real instrument panel, not merely a 2D drawing of a panel.
    The result is a unique addon that strives to bring you the spirit and the actual feeling of flying such a high performance aircraft at a time when LCD screens, GPS and powerful computers didn't exist and pilots needed to know how to fly and navigate with minimal resources and to rely on their own experience, abilities and judgment. This is how real-world Learjet 25 pilots are still flying this amazing aircraft today!
    For the general aviation desktop pilot, being able to hop between small regional airports while passing airliners along the way is quite a thrill, but for the serious IFR enthusiast, we are confident this package will provide years of flying pleasure. Even if there are some differences between this addon and the real aircraft, mainly due to the current limitations in the available simulation platforms, nearly all systems, instruments, switches and knobs are fully functional in order to simulate complete procedures, from cold and dark to shutdown. We believe you will be thrilled by this new version as much as we are.
    The GLJ Model 25 includes native versions for Prepar3D® v4.x and v3.x, and new versions for FSX and FSX: Steam® Edition.
