    xplane [WIP] 717-200 freeware for XPlane 11

    Always keen to see freeware coming to XP, but if that Fokker has implemented too many systems I doubt I’d be able to get the engines started or navigate too easily!!
  3. I’ve recently taken the plunge and purchased XP11 so this is great news; but my bank manager isn’t going to be happy!!
  4. News from the BBC about another corporate merger/alliance in the aircraft manufacturing sector ... Boeing has agreed a deal that will give it control of Embraer's commercial jet business. The proposed joint venture will give the US aerospace giant a significant stake in the market for smaller passenger planes. Boeing has been courting Brazil's Embraer for some time. The need for a deal has recently become more pressing since its European rival, Airbus, took control of Bombardier's C-Series regional jet programme. Its deal with the Canadian company had threatened to give Airbus a significant advantage in the global marketplace. The agreement, which values Embraer's commercial aircraft operations at $4.75bn, will restore parity between Boeing and Airbus. — more available at the link below ...

  8. Applies to both FSX(SE) and P3D. Per QualityWings support forum: — We have just released a Hotfix for the Ultimate 787 Collection, which brings the current version number to V1.1.1. We would like to express our thanks to all our customers who provided feedback - good or bad - and thus assisted us greatly in finding solutions. Of course this hotfix does not address every single reported issue but it takes care of some high priority items that needed to be taken care of quickly. Now that the dust has settled a bit after the release we have a good idea of where we stand and what needs to be worked on. We will of course continue to improve the 787 in the next weeks and months. Some key aspects will be a rework of the EFB Dispatch page, improvements to VNAV / LNAV, stability/performance optimization and more. - The post goes on to describe two install options (upgrade from v1.1.0 or full reinstall).

    Ah ok, thanks @Noodle
  11. TSLcrew, do you have any news for those of us that couldn’t make it? Or are you taking the ‘what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas’ rule’ very strictly?! SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK :

  13. I’ve just stumbled across this video explaining how the Space Shuttle went from 30,000 feet to touchdown in 3 minutes (on purpose!). Nice blend of facts and humour, enjoy .... SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK :
