  5. Bell’s 525 Relentless Fly-by-wire Helicopter Program Moves Toward Certification – AINtv Since the 525 Relentless returned to the air in July 2017 after the fatal crash of flight test vehicle 1 a year before, Bell has flown both of its remaining super-medium twins, FTV2 and 3, nearly an additional 200 flight-test hours. The two aircraft have accumulated approximately 290 hours in total between them. FTV4 is scheduled to make its maiden flight in the fourth quarter. At the Heli-Expo show in Las Vegas, Bell showed its 525 mockup with a full VIP interior, complete with Bristow Helicopters livery, even though the oil-and-gas and search-and-rescue operator hasn’t been officially revealed as a customer, as have any other customers. The company hasn’t set a formal price for the 525, but it expects to complete certification flight testing by the end of 2018.

  7. xplane FlyTampa moves over to XP11!

    FlyTampa: “Pigs might fly after all”, Scenery Developer Hints At X-Plane Market Entry FlyTampa has dropped the strongest hint yet that their entry into the X-Plane scenery market may not be far off at all, using Facebook to tease what appears to be their first product for the platform. Recently we’ve seen a number of prominent, high-quality developers traditionally from the FSX/P3D world making the move to introduce their products to the X-Plane market. Orbx released their first product for X-Plane in the form of Meigs Field (which FSElite will be taking a look at in-depth soon) not too long ago and was snapped up in droves by X-Plane users excited to see what the company was able to bring to the table.

  8. UK2000 Releases Gatwick Update For X-Plane Developer UK2000 has announced that they have released a small update for their recently released Gatwick (EGKK) airport scenery, making some small improvements to the software.

  9. Flight Sim Development Group Previews Upcoming Pilots of the Caribbean Project Flight Sim Development Group (FSDG) has previewed some shots of their upcoming Pilots of the Caribbean project on their Facebook page. First up in the series appears to be the island of St. Vincent. While details are scarce, the shots show some amazing photos of both Argyle International Airport (TVSA) and the surrounding island. A post on the developers forum promises something “very soon”, and comments on the Facebook post are equally scant in details. In the meantime, enjoy some amazing shots of FSDG’s upcoming St. Vincent scenery.

  14. Navigraph AIRAC Data Now Available For FlightFactor A320 The FlightFactor A320 is arguably the best add-on aircraft that X-Plane has seen in a long time, and after finally emerging from a 3-tier buy-in beta stage at the beginning of 2018, the only thing missing was Navigraph’s AIRAC data support. Understandably, Navigraph has been copping a fair bit of frustration from their mutual FlightFactor customers who enjoy using the current data and charts on their simming adventures. Countless Facebook and posts on various forums asking when support for the aircraft would be ready had resulted in numerous responses amounting to a “soon”, and in some cases some sarcastic responses such as “the end of 2018”.
