  1. The training helper software to setup repeatable flights (great for training be it in A2A C172 or PMDG 737) and generally great fun as a flight simmer to help hone skills, looking at you Sparks is released for P3Dv4 now and supports use of all the classic add-ons from A2A, PMDG, Majestic.

  6. A couple of insights in the other side of things we work on that the average fs hobbyist wouldnt ne B377 slightly changed but not much to help the Berlin Airflift Historical Foundation, making there first flight recently there new baby the C97; http://a2asimulations.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=62174 Spitfire simulator to train Spitfire pilots of today; https://www.facebook.com/airtechsim/?ref=br_rs Working with Redbird on some amazing new PPL programs to bring flight training into the 21st Century; There are several others that I cannot go into right now, but everything we do on that side of things always has a great filter down to the fs hobbist market and from our point of view the A2A software simulators you fly at home on your desk are essentially the same to what are used in the certified and non certified flight training areas in area such as to the numbers, correct flight models and what not.
  7. This thread is good; http://a2asimulations.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=61846#p472225 But yes, we are hoping for an end of 2017 release of something, we have our Accu-sim Spitfire MkI-II coming to P3Dv4, Accu-feel and lots of ther bits. Safe to say after a quiet from fs hobbyist pov 2017 from A2A its going to be quite a busy 2018 as some of our professional flight training projects close up.
  8. Awesome, thank you So it looks like I'll be able to do the morning school run and then leave to head to Duxford around 8:45ish, get to Duxford around 10:45ish depending on traffic.
  9. Sorry I am a little late posting this but A2A Simulations have some jobs up; LINK TO SOURCE: http://a2asimulations.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=61303
  10. dates are off in Edsons post? Whens Duxford, need to check I can go as that's what I'm looking forward to the most!
  11. I've had this come up a few times in recent months and my advice is going to ruffle some old guard feathers but its there. Not aimed at anyone just a vent haha Personally, Advice is simply this, if you are buying a new multi-core PC with GPU and running modern software, why do you need to go the complex route of off-loading like pre multi-core days compared to just going the easier slightly less complex route of configuring correctly and setting up a modern single system? Years gone by the network route was great but hardware and software has moved on quite a bit since then, enough to essentially make almost all the pros of doing such a setup now non-existent or at least on a par with a single system whilst requiring a shed load more energy and potential troubleshooting when it all goes balls up. This stuff tends to be a grind my gears situation (Wheres N00dle) because its similar to the mythical annoying stuff that floated around fs land in which peiople where installing the sim outside of the default location to try to avoid issues rather than simply understand windows folder options and correctly click a couple clicks ot set the sim up correctly in its default position whilst also understanding a little more about ones own computer and its operation. *insert grindy teeth sound here* Ignore everything ive said if you are gonna stream, and want a stream pc, but otherwise for fs alone the energy can be better spent making sure the single system is the best it can be and the system is setup correctly, plenty of cores, memory and GPU can in 2017 serve better than a couple mid range or lower systems hacked and slashed together to try to perform as good as one top end computer.
  12. I'll be present but for Cosford I need to meet more people that I have time for so I can for sure say hello and try to hang out as best I can between work. Edson mentioned Duxford visit to me on Discord. If so give us a date please as I can try and book that day so I can spend some proper time annoying you numpties with a day at Duxford. cheers, Lewis ,....I live in East Anglia, the sticks, but where 8th AF was based with B-17/B-24 etc bases everywhere. If you get out this way to visit any of the small little AF museums like Thorpe Abbots, Flixton etc then give us a yell for sure!

  22. Great Video showing the early days of Heathrow and some classic aircraft in action, some even with taxi speeds rivalling Sparks style! Also worth noting the climb outs, note how shallow the climb outs are as they start the slow step climbs to altitude. credit to cflord over at the A2A Simulations forums for the find.
