    Flysimware Falcon 50

    | 503 views

    The Falcon 50 first prototype flew in November 1976 and deliveries of the trijet began in 1979. It had a new supercritical wing design and was the first business jet capable of crossing the Atlantic Ocean with legal fuel reserves. It had both a wing span and length of approximately 61 feet. It was originally equipped with three Garrett TFE 731-3 turbofan engines which gave it a range of over 3000 nautical miles, a typical cruise speed of 430 knots, and a ceiling of 45,000 feet. It could take off in slightly less than 4700 feet and land in less than 2700 feet. In the mid 1990s the Falcon 50 was updated with improved TFE 731 engines, new avionics and other improvements and the designation was changed to Falcon 50EX. The manufacturer produced 252 Falcon 50s and an additional 100 Falcon 50EXs. Production ended in 2008.

    FS2Crew (www.fs2crew.com) is happy to report that Version 1.3 of FS2Crew for the PMDG 747 QOTS II has been released!

    We encourage all users to read the Change Log carefully as there are some important things to know!
    Slovenia X (regional scenery add-on) and Slovenia X Airports for FSX, FSX:SE and P3D (v1-v4) have been released.
    Slovenia X offers a complete rendition of Slovenia, covering the small but incredibly diverse country from hilly southern to mountainous northern regions and from Adriatic coasts to the eastern plains. It combines custom landclass and vector data, custom landclass textures, custom autogen and landmark models, photo-real inserts and default objects, with the aim of creating an identifiable and unique region, that ‘looks and feels’ Slovenian. Features and images can be found on the product page.
    Slovenia X Airports evolved from Slovenia X realizing that the region itself would not be complete without its crucial ingredients: airports. The add-on (at the moment only available as an upgrade of Slovenia X or in a bundle with Slovenia X) adds over 40 Slovenian airfields and airstrips, all with custom and customised buildings, aeroplanes, seasonal greenery (grass, trees and other objects), default sim objects and lots of clutter which bring the airfields to life. The VFR aerodromes as classified by Slovenia Control feature photo-real (seasonal) underlays which blend seamlessly with Slovenia X. While Slovenia X provides the ‘regional’ context, Slovenia X Airports deliver a complementary, but vital part of our virtual flying community. With such a number of airfields and airstrips available, Slovenia is becoming a virtual VFR heaven and a joy to visit – virtually or, better even: in real life. Full features list can be found on the product page.
    The release does not mark an end to the two year development. New updates and upgrades with additional contents are planned. The first one is already available as freeware: Kredarica complex featuring seasonal (yes, snow cover and seasonal building textures included) rendition of mountain hut complex just below the highest Slovenian peak Mt Triglav (2684 m) complete with heliport and lots of custom objects. While it is specifically atuned to Slovenia X  it can be also used with the default sim version.
    For more information and to purchase visit the Slovenia X and Slovenia X Airports  Product Page.
