  1. I live about 20 miles west of DFW and we have thunderstorms moving into our area. I fired up the FBW A320 and took off from DFW and headed this way. The weather at DFW was scattered clouds. As I turned west the radar showed the thunder storm cells and lightning was visible. For once it was pretty accurate. As has been stated, it can be hit or miss.
  2. Funny how many issues are being fixed by the community. It’s almost like it’s open sourced. Ok, not really.
  3. Great shot. It looks like Maui. We'll be there in three weeks so we'll see how accurate it is.
  4. I guess the question is, if we're already using the experimental version, should we transition to the development version or stay where we are?
  5. There are no automatic updates. You get the latest version from here. https://pilot2atc.com/V2Downloads
  6. Are there any good mods for the 747-8? I'm sure there won't be anything as good as the FBW mods but something that upgrades it past the default aircraft?
  7. Is it possible that your antivirus is blocking it?

  9. Were you using the USB port on your motherboard? I had to add a separate USB card to get my Reverb (G1) to work. Just a thought.
  10. Absolutely, I agree. I don't think many of us are willing to work for free. What they've accomplished so far is amazing.
  11. If anyone thinks that FBW is going to continue to develop their A320 to FSL level and add other variants for free, I think you're kidding yourselves. At some point they're going to want to be paid for their efforts.
  12. Wed, Mar 31 at 1:43 PM Interesting News. Navigraph Newsletter Navigraph acquires SimBrief Navigraph, the flight simulation community's trusted source for updated charts and navigational data, today announced that it has acquired SimBrief, the flight simulation community's most popular flight planning software. The acquisition is a natural progression of the already close collaboration between Navigraph and SimBrief. It builds on the integration between the two platforms existing since 2013 and provides the ability to do flight planning using up to date navigational data. SimBrief's flight planning functionality will continue to be free. Users who want to use the most current navigational data can subscribe to Navigraph and unlock the AIRAC cycles in SimBrief, as before. "SimBrief founder Derek has done an outstanding job creating a flight planning service which the flight simulation community loves." says Magnus Axholt, CEO and co-founder of Navigraph. "We plan to integrate SimBrief and Navigraph even further and enable additional functionality to SimBrief using the data and resources Navigraph has available." "Derek will play a key role as we develop some of the features in the next generation Navigraph Charts product. With the powerful combination of his real world aviation background and software development experience, Derek is a very welcome member of our skilled and multi-disciplinary Navigraph Development Team. "We shall make SimBrief's flight planning functionality even more accessible to developers in the community by structuring the SimBrief API together with Navigraph APIs in the upcoming Navigraph Developer Portal." Magnus summarizes. "Navigraph has been a strong SimBrief supporter from the very beginning." Derek adds. "I have always enjoyed working with them to improve the integration between the two services. This very much feels like a natural progression, and I am excited to be a part of the team going forward." He goes on to say, "I'm confident that Navigraph's resources and experienced development team will not only help ensure that SimBrief remains available to the community for years to come, but also make for some exciting new features and improvements that wouldn't otherwise be possible." "I have been both humbled and incredibly grateful for the support the community has shown me since I launched SimBrief nearly eight years ago, and I'm looking forward to this next chapter in SimBrief's development." says Derek in closing. SimBrief will continue to operate under the name SimBrief, but with the tag line "by Navigraph". All for now, The Navigraph Development Team Copyright © 2021 Navigraph, All rights reserved.
