  1. I hope so yes, not sure why they've been so slow with that tbh, it's not exactly difficult?? 🤔
  2. TFDi Design 717 1.1 Release Candidate 1 Released Just ahead of July 17th, or 717 day as they are calling it, TFDI has pushed the first release candidate of version 1.1 of the 717, brining an overhauled external model and a minor bug fix in preparation for 717 day on Tuesday. The main change of this update is obviously the new external model, and boy oh boy did it have some major rework done. Included in this rework is significant amount f detain such as rivets, seams, and dirt to exterior textures, new landing gear complete with a new gear bay and tire textures, wingflex, cabin lights on the exterior mode, and fan blade blur. The full changelog of the update can be found below. Do note that all repaints prior to the new model will be incompatible and only a white livery has been provided for this beta release. It was stated that more liveries, along with the paintkit, will be available on or before 7/17. That was all for now, but 717 day is but 2 days away so we’ll surely be hearing lots more about the 717 leading up to then. Stay tuned for the full release of v1.1, including the aircraft’s exit of open beta. A few previews of the new model can be found below, credit to RoooDog on our Discord for providing the images!

  3. AFM M20 Collection Updated AFM (Advanced Flight Modeling) has released version 3.0.0 of their M20 Collection. With this update, the plane has officially left its early access state. The devs make clear that they will still bring updates to the aircraft, but feel confident enough to not consider it as early access anymore. The 3.0.0 update is mainly focussed on immersion, according to the developers, and comes with several changes to do so. This update requires a complete reinstall of the product. A quick guide to do so can be found in their announcement post. The M20 Collection requires X-Plane 11.20 or later, and can be bought from the AFM Store.

  4. A2A V-Tail Bonanza Cockpit Previewed Last previewed a little less than a month ago, and announced back in April, the A2A V-Tail Bonanza promises to bring a new and unique aircraft to our sims that we’ve never experienced before. While we’ve seen previews of the external model plenty before in the past, something we haven’t seen yet is where us virtual pilots spend the overwhelming majority of their time; the virtual cockpit! Unsurprisingly, coming from A2A, these previews look absolutely stunning and show that the aircraft is certainly getting closer to being in our hands sometime in the near future. When we have anymore information or previews, we, of course, won’t hesitate to share! SOURCE INFO https://fselite.net/previews/a2a-v-tail-bonanza-cockpit-previewed/

  6. FSFX Packages Airbus Professional Statement SOURCE INFO Ever since the release of the Aerosoft Airbus Professional, and even way before that, many have been wondering if FSFX Packages’ A320 Immersion package would be compatible with the new product, and now we know. In the blog post on the FSFX website, it was revealed that the package is not compatible with the new version and it’s not as straightforward of a port as many think due to the changed systems behind the scenes. The team further elaborated that it is very unlikely that we’ll see an update for the product until early 2019, and it will be a paid update (with discounts) when it does release. As a close, and to end on a high note, FSFX teased that they have “some cool thing coming in October!”, whatever that may be! That’s all for now sadly, until next time! https://fsfxpackages.com/en/blog/2018/07/14/statement-about-aerosofts-new-a318-a319-professional/https://fsfxpackages.com/en/blog/2018/07/14/statement-about-aerosofts-new-a318-a319-professional/ https://fselite.net/news/fsfx-packages-airbus-professional-statement/
