  • Optimization on photogrammetry loading

  • Cessna 208 B Grand Caravan EX: Fixed – invisible spoiler removed
  • EXTRA 330LT : Engine reactivity increased

Garmin glass cockpit equipped aircraft:

  • Added visual notification on PFD when deactivating AP
  • Flight director is now automatically turned on when AP is enabled and cannot be disabled

UI

  • The data consumption value calculation has been fixed
  • Fix input feedback on some devices
  • The livery name should now be correctly displayed in the menus

  • Some accuracy for the live time have been fixed
  • Fixed an issue that prevented the checklist eye button to be selected
  • The bushtrip menu should no longer freeze
  • Switching from online to offline in the menu should no longer freeze the title
  • Fixed some behaviors that resulted in having the World map search not responding

INPUT

  • Honeycomb Bravo Throttle Quadrant default preset has been added (GA Twin engines configuration)
  • CH Throttle Quadrant default preset has been added

Downloading on Steam. 263.1 MB. That was earlier than expected, usually Steam is 30-40 min late!

Edit: 12.75 GB in-game download.
