  1. Courtesy of fselite... The team at Just Flight are hiring! If you’re passionate about developing for flight simulator and want to work for one of the biggest developers / publishers around then this is your chance. In addition to developing for FSX/P3D, Just Flight are committed to expanding into new sims. The team at Just Flight are looking for experienced coders to assist with aircraft development. They’re ideally looking for those with experience in C++ gauge programming, but will consider candidates with comparable languages. Also, if you have experience with GDI, DirectX, Lua or the PDK, this will be helpful. The role will allow you to be flexible in work location and hours. You can find out more information by contacting Just Flight. SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK : https://fselite.net/news/just-flight-looking-to-hire-new-developers/
  2. I hope the coffee tilts when the plane banks, that would be adding to the realism! As a child, before the days of tail cameras, I always used a clear airline cup filled with just the right amount of coke to ensure the top of the liquid was level with a ridge part-way down the cup. This provided an artificial horizon as a passenger and gave me some connection to the flight whilst confined in a long metal tube with tiny windows.

  4. Fond memories from old Microsoft Flight sim days can be rekindled with the following release from Orbx (also available for FSX & P3D): Few airports hold as much nostalgia, familiarity, and emotion for aviation enthusiasts. Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, Meigs Field operated as the gateway to corporate Chicago for over half a century. After its closure, Merrill C. Meigs Field (KCGX) had been recreated with the utmost attention to detail and accuracy originally for FSX & P3D and then subsequently Aerofly FS2. Now it's X-Plane's turn! Depicted as it was in its final years, virtual pilots are welcomed to return to what was once the busiest single strip airport in the United States and enjoy it in high definition. Featuring a fully modeled terminal, highly detailed static aircraft, and other historically accurate elements, the airport has been brought back to life. In addition to the airfield itself, the city of Chicago waterfront and parks district has received a facelift to bring the area up to date. Key Features * Ultra detailed rendition of KCGX Meigs Field circa late 90's and early 2000's * Many highly detailed Chicago landmarks, including Soldier Field, Cloudgate, Adler Planetarium, Navy Pier and The Shedd * Custom CBD for Chicago skyline including Sears Tower, Aeon Center, Trump Tower, Hancock Center * Thousands of autogen buildings accurately placed * Airport imagery at 30cm per pixel * Beautifully modelled static aircraft SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : https://orbxdirect.com/product/kcgx/xp11 NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK :

  10. Update from DCS about v2.5 bug fixes and a helicopter sale... = DCS World 2.5 Update Since last week's newsletter, the team continues to address items discovered during the Open Beta test period. Items such as fog discoloration, night lighting, multiplayer performance, load times, and others are all being addressed for the release version. It is very important that any changes made for the DCS World 2.5 release version maintain or improve game performance of the 2.5 Open Beta. Since the DCS World 2.5 Open Beta release, we have released three Hot Fixes. You can read their change logs on the DCS forum. Once we feel that all the significant issues of the 2.5 Open Beta have been resolved, we will then release the DCS World 2.5 installer and update to DCS World 2.5. DCS World Helicopter 30% Off Sale Continues Our DCS World helicopter sale will end on 19 February 2018 at 0900. One of the biggest benefits of DCS World 2.5 is that it's a much better environment to fly helicopters. The higher-resolution terrain elevation mesh, higher resolution terrain and object textures, much improved trees, huge forests, and trees that now have collision / block line of sight for weapons, all create a much more engaging and beautiful environment to fly in.

  11. It seems featuring the plane in the previous Mission Impossible film hasn’t helped here?! ... == Airbus has written off another €1.3bn (£1.2bn) on its troubled A400M military transport plane, bringing total losses on the project to more than €8bn. The A400M has had setbacks over the years, most seriously a crash during a test flight in Spain in 2015 which led to the deaths of the four crew members. == SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK : http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-43069630
  12. Yet another example of silliness on a commercial airliner... I wonder if she was just annnoyed that P3D was broken due to the recent V4.2 update?! Also, is it me or is this quite a short flight anyway?! — A furious woman was told she would be thrown off a plane after she complained about having to sit next to a mother and her baby. The angry passenger also threatened to try to have a flight attendant on the Delta Airlines plane fired during an alleged expletive-filled tirade.

  14. News via the Rumble website..: January 15 [2018] was a day to break records and we have just the one. A flight that usually takes five hours and 45 minutes non stop from New York to London was flown in just five hours and 13 minutes! A Norwegian flight had the honors to be named the fastest flight since the Concorde. Captain Harold van Dam flew his Boeing 787 Dreamliner, reaching speeds of 776 miles per hours on the 3,458-mile flight. Surprisingly, the captain also admits that the plane could have gone even faster, if they didn’t encounter turbulence.
