  3. Deadstick Bush Flight Simulator Announcement Trailer The Irreguilar Corporation released a trailer video of their entirely new simulator ‘Deadstick Bush Flight Simulator’. This is not an addon for FSX or P3D… this is a whole new sim. The short 30 second trailer showcased an amazing looking Piper with shots inside the engine compartment and inside of a service hangar. The Youtube description says it will feature first person (view) characteristics, but the player can jump in and out of the airplane and walk around. There is more screenshots and information on Deadstick’s Steam Early Access page. This looks like a beautiful new sim that will be coming this year for those who want to step out of the ‘flight deck’. https://store.steampowered.com/app/771800/Deadstick__Bush_Flight_Simulator/ https://fselite.net/uncategorised/deadstick-bush-flight-simulator-announcement-trailer/

  5. Event Manager, Nicole Glander just commented on Episode 47 of ON APPROACH where we discuss FlightSimCon vs. Flight Sim Expo by request from one of our viewers. It seems like this is throwing shade...am I wrong? What do YOU make of it... SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK :

  13. TheSkyLounge.TV doesn't have commercial "Sponsors", we have Patrons that keep things running. To thank our Patrons at the Gold Club Sponsor level we work with them to create a brand, from naming to design, and promotion. Fictional of course, but isn't all of this just pretend!? All over the community you see us thank these sponsors in creative yet non-intrusive ways. It's how we choose to function rather than to have direct advertisers. Today I'm excited to introduce gear that you can purchase for each of these brands, we start off with 2 and thankfully have many more to come! A HUGE thanks to @awicker18 and @ssimmons1958 , the first 2 Patrons at Sponsor level. Interested in becoming a Patron Sponsor?

  19. Announced earlier today the Just Flight team has started work on their newest project for X-Plane 11 the Hawk T-1/Advanced Trainer. The Hawk is built by BAE systems as a tandem seat, single jet engine powered trainer aircraft for the Royal Air Force as well as other nations. The more well known use of the Hawk is for the United Kingdoms flight demonstration team the Red Arrows. This aircraft will feature a fully 3D modeled front and back seat cockpits and will feature realistic payloads (including guided missiles, rockets, bombs, 30mm ADEN cannon gun pod, external fuel tanks, reconnaissance pod and Red Arrows diesel/dye smoke pod). All in all this is one sleek and sexy looking aircraft. 1 of 3 SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : https://www.justflight.com/forum NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK : https://www.airdailyx.net/article/just-flight-project-announcement-x-plane-11/

  21. I'd love your feedback in the comments! You can now experience a 3hr show in 10 minutes with super chill tunes. These are meant to be a teaser, a glimpse at a live show, a quick travel. I'm going to call them SkyVlogs and the intention is for it to be totally raw. "Heres what you missed...in 10 mins" Hoping all the new youtube faces we are finding say "damn, i need to check out the live show, good visuals there!" The music provided by Chillhop.com beautifully cancels out speed of footage, its a mindfuck of the most perfect kind and before you know it, you experienced a 3hr flight! I'd love your feedback in the comments! SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK :

  25. I am very proud to introduce VSKYLABS major project for 2018: The VSKYLABS Solar Impulse 2 Project Introduction The VSKYLABS Solar Impulse 2 Project is designed especially for Virtual Reality (VR) experience in the rich and detailed 3D environment of X-Plane flight simulator. Along with an advanced and comprehensive Flight Dynamics and systems simulation, it is including a high-definition, fully animated representation for both the exteriors and interiors sections of the Solar Impulse 2 aircraft. It is a fully operational virtual Solar Impulse 2 aircraft simulation in which the round-the-world flight paths of the real Solar Impulse 2 aircraft could be recreated with realistic flight dynamics characteristics and relevant operation and mission-related considerations in the amazing, dynamic world of X-Plane. Although highly accurate in every aspect, for some of the real-world Solar Impulse 2 technologies and systems, the VSKYLABS Solar Impulse 2 Project will not include a 1:1 detailed simulation, and it is to be replaced with a comprehensive and plausible solution featured within the detailed systems and avionics simulation of X-Plane. The VSKYLABS Solar Impulse 2 Project was acknowledged by 'Solar Impulse'. However, it is not affiliated with the Solar Impulse foundation. Project's Genesis - The VSKYLABS 'Conatra-Ventus' I've always been fascinated by renewable energy and clean-Earth technologies, especially when it is combined with aerospace and aviation applications. As a thrilled enthusiast of the Solar Impulse project, I've decided to make my first experimental steps in better understanding some the challenges and aspects of designing and flying a 'Clean Energy' efficient aircraft. X-Plane was the perfect test-bed for my experiments. In 2015, I've created the VSKYLABS Contra-Ventus Prototype aircraft for X-Plane. It is a fictional aircraft. I derived its general aerodynamic design features from the MIT human-powered, record braking aircraft - the Daedalus 88, along with the implementation of electric power propulsion to execute periodic powered climb-outs and unpowered descents, using the propeller's windmilling to re-charge the batteries while soaring in the skies in prolonged glide periods (practically using wing energy which is a "conversion" of the potential energy gained in the powered climb). The design concept was to experiment and research the practical idea of electric powered flight coupled with wind energy utilization for a 24 hours battery cells charging capabilities. The 'Contra-Ventus' is more of a concept demonstrator and educational tool for experiencing some of the fascinating aspects of Energy management, aerodynamics and flight envelope limitations. Getting deeper - The birth of the VSKYLABS Solar Impulse 2 project I was so fascinated with the outcome of the 'Contra-Ventus' project in X-Plane, and right after completion and many enjoyable exploration sorties, I felt ready to begin my experiments and development of a more complex electric-powered simulation model in X-Plane. It was the Solar Impulse 2 aircraft. It was a completely self-learning and experimenting, "backyard" development effort which lasted, in-and-out, for almost two years now. Time went by and I found myself having a pretty advanced project in my hands. X-Plane 11 was released along the way, and up with its updated versions that included a more thorough electrical systems simulation definitions for me to explore, I made additional progress. The Virtual Reality "Knock-out" trigger While developing the VSKYLABS Scheibe SF-25C Falke project, X-Plane 11.20 came into the picture with its native VR capabilities. The development of the SF-25C turned its focus on VR design and usability. I was so impressed with the VR experience! As a Solar Impulse enthusiast, I was very familiar with an inspiring video in which I saw so many times, called: "Solar Impulse 2: An Exclusive Insight into Life Onboard | WIRED" in which Dr. Bertrand Piccard (the initiator and co-pilot, with André Borschberg, of the Solar Impulse project), explained how he lives and operates the Solar Impulse 2 as he crosses the Atlantic ocean during a 5-days flight. It was clear that I must NOW take my "backyard" project of the Solar Impulse 2 and get it done ASAP in order to virtually (VR) be able to sit in the Solar Impulse 2 cockpit with a fully detailed and interactive 3D environment while crossing the virtual Atlantic ocean in X-Plane! I made contact with the Solar Impulse foundation and got the approval to proceed with my project as a VSKYLABS design model for X-Plane, bringing the excitement of using, understanding and "feeling" the Solar Impulse 2 aircraft and its mission out in the open. Project Schedule This project had changed some of the priorities in the VSKYLABS planned road-map for 2018, pushing down some planned projects to be waiting for its completion. February 2018 will be dedicated to updating the entire VSKYLABS fleet with VR capabilities, and to complete the VSKYLABS DC-3/C-47 Flying Lab Project expected update for version v2.7. The main focus in March/April 2018 will be channeled to the VSKYLABS Solar Impulse 2 Project. The 2-years project is already in a pretty advanced stage, so hopefully, I expect its completion and release around April 2018. Stay tuned as this page will include development news and other updates LINK TO SOURCE: http://www.vskylabs.com/2018/01/vskylabs-solar-impulse-2-project.html
