    Eaglesoft Challenger 605 under development!

    Happy to have seen their progress reported here , with respect to posting this on the front page its rare to link to a facebook post as these are often redirected links to a login or join page for many who are not facebook users. Ron is an old acquaintance , I worked on their SR 22 series when that was brought to FSX , perhaps he can provide time for an interview and touch base , its been some time since we chatted on Skype .

    Why isn't there a LOT more study level aircrafts?

    Years of development go into production of this kind of release and have a consequential relationship with end user cost too , not all clients are happy to shell out that much money or spend time with the manual , the firewall the throttle group outnumbers the study lever cohort by a large margin .

  7. 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. • FLYSIMWARE INFORMATION Flysimware have animated almost every function throughout the cabin and virtual cockpit.

  9. 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.

  12. Twenty-one years ago, two Flight Simulator enthusiasts had a common wish, to improve the ATC in FS. A programmer in Atlanta met an Air Traffic controller in Memphis and we created a company called JDTLLC. We began working on Radar Contact which became the best FS ATC program available for many years. In 2001, after 6 years of work, Version 4.3 was released. Seventeen years later, after deep soul searching, we decided to give RC away for free, and step away from the business of supporting it. As of January 1st, 2019, we will shutdown the web site, our email, our storage providers, and our e-commerce partner. What this means to our existing customers, and future owners: 1. Radar Contact 4.3 will be available at no charge, by downloading it from my iCloud Drive. Here is the link. 2. JDTLLC will no longer generate keys. We will give you the same tool we use, the Key Generator. You can download it from here. 3. Radar Contact will be supported here on the AVSIM forum. 4. Refunds have already been issued to the customers who purchased RC in the last 3 months. 5. John and Doug will be available, as needed, at jdradarcontact@iCloud.com. Keep in mind, support will be handled here on the forum. During these 21 years, we have encountered tens of thousands of customers, hundreds of supporters and contributors and dozens of beta testers. We will never be able to adequately express our deepest gratitude and thankfulness to each and every one of you. All we can do is say, "Thank You".

  15. Vertx Flight Simulation is proud to announce the release of their first aircraft – the Diamond DA62 for Prepar3D v4, available for purchase now at www.vertxsim.com The Diamond DA62 is one of the newest and most advanced GA aircraft you can buy today. Powered by two turbo-charged 180hp jet-fuel diesel engines, the DA62 features a sleek carbon-composite airframe, advanced avionics, TKS anti-icing, redundant engine control computers, and many more advanced systems. The Vertx DA62 provides the most realistic and immersive flying experience possible. Every aspect of the Vertx DA62 exhibits unmatched attention-to-detail—from the 3D models and textures, to the avionics, the aircraft systems, the aerodynamics, the sounds, and the overall user experience. The Vertx G1000 features the clearest and smoothest-moving glass display yet seen in P3D, thanks to the innovative use of 3D modelling to build the digital display. Text is clear and readable, colours are smooth and crisp, and the attitude indicator moves perfectly smoothly at the same frame-rate as the rest of the sim. The G1000 MFD features large, clear maps with multiple display options. Integral with the G1000 is a fully-featured flight planner that allows you to create, save, edit and load flight plans directly in the G1000, or load flight plans from an external flight planner. Realistic direct-to, GPS OBS, VNAV and GPS LPV approach guidance are also simulated. The Vertx DA62 features in-depth systems modelling, allowing you to fly using the exact same procedures outlined in the real-life DA62 POH. All cockpit settings are saved between flights, meaning whenever you start a new flight in the Vertx DA62 it’s just how left it on your last flight. Each engine features dual control computers with automated run-up, single power lever control and automatic propeller feathering. Other systems include: a custom electrical system with realistic battery drain, ground power, backup batteries on engine ECUs and the standby attitude module; a realistic fuel system with manually pumped auxiliary tanks; emergency gravity powered gear extension; TKS anti-icing; supplemental oxygen, and much more. The flight model received particular attention, with the aim of bringing new levels of realism to P3D. Utilising code written outside of the standard P3D flight model, the lift and drag values for each individual wing are constantly calculated, ensuring the most realistic low speed, stall, and spin characteristics possible. To ensure the most realistic single-engine handling possible, we’ve added more custom code to simulate single-engine asymmetrical thrust. An engine failure while flying at high power with low airspeed can lead to loss of directional control and inadvertent spin entry. All interior sounds are controlled by custom code exclusive to the Vertx DA62. The engine sounds feature ultra-realistic response to RPM and power changes. Propeller sounds feature numerous advancements including propeller blade angle-of-attack effects. Wind sounds react to aircraft attitude, gear position, and more. Sounds become louder when you open the doors. Additional features include: hypoxia (oxygen starvation) simulation; Wing flex with custom control code; doors that react to airspeed and attitude changes; volumetric propellers that smoothly transition between high and low RPM; floating magnetic compass; cockpit vibrations; stall buffet; over-speed cockpit vibrations and wing flutter; engine start-up and shut-down vibrations; and much more. A feature-rich config app allows you set the Vertx DA62 to be just the way you like. For more information visit the Vertx Diamond DA62 Homepage
