    10 years ago i did my first repaint for FSX and since then, i transformed hundrets of warplanes into fancy cookiejar* Racing Planes. For the anniversary of my thoroughly controversial hobby, I started to tidy up my project folders - starting with the XPFR D520 - my favourite freeware plane. i have arranged my complete Dewoitine repaint collection and presented it clearly on my website. Other Collections / Planes will follow (only my X-Plane paintjobs) That's not a big topic, i know - the only reason why i created this strange Topic is, because I think that Repaints & Freeware are too neglected in the Flightsim Youtuber and Reviewer scene. https://youtu.be/0YMu2RbVXmg *(so i am called mocking by the professional repaint pioneers: a CookieJarAirplane Designer) SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : https://www.unionvogelhirsch.de/ NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK : https://www.unionvogelhirsch.de/dewoitine-520/

    I am extremely busy getting the next update on its way. My hope still is to get it out before the end of September. One new feature will be a new 3d model and textures for a Transcontinental and Western Air Inc. Vega. Wanna see? Here are some quick peeks taken directly from my developer-potato: I'll put a proper announcement up once I've got all information collected. Please keep in mind that with release of the update the price of the Vega will be raised by 5 Euros. So get it now while she's still cheap. Also, don't forget to use your Sky Lounge discount code if you're a patron. Cheers, Vitus

    After a very successful Quest Kodiak, one of the best PT6 on XP11, Thranda is starting a new project, I named the ugly and not-so well proportioned PC6 Porter ! But hey, a jeep is an ugly vehicle too, and a Porter is just a flying Jeep 😛 I already can feel my wheels touching on Lukla, mount Everest Some pics, more on the source post !

    QualityWings 787 Version 1.1.2 Released The long awaited update for the QualityWings 787 has been released. The team at QualityWings and the beta testers have been very hard at work for the past few months updating and testing version 1.1.2 of their immensely popular Ultimate Boeing 787. The developers have improved and reworked several features that the community said needed work and QW delivered. The new EFB has been improved as well as the take off performance to give proper flap settings and derates. QualityWings have also stated that they have implemented an optional feature to create a crash log and will be sent to the development team automatically if you experience a Crash to Desktop while flying the 787. V1.1.2 Changelog: improved product stability QW CONFIG: “SAVE CONFIG” fills up fuel tanks QW CONFIG: some options do not get saved QW CONFIG: some option can not be set / selected PFD: straight in IAN approach (RNAV/VOR/NDB) are missing approach name, DME and Rwy info in upper left corner PFD: LNAV/VNAV deviation indicators on the PFD remain frozen until RNAV Approach active PFD: Minimum Maneuver Speed and stall speed bands move too fast when flap config changes PFD: Missing yellow ground level marker on departure ND: zoom level indication differences when VSD is enabled or not ND: ANP shows 0.00 on full ND and 0.05 on half ND EICAS: Oil temperature too low EICAS: Engine vibration is too high EICAS: N1 indication jumps up when passing 80kts during take off roll (RR only) EFB Dispatch: complete remake EFB Dispatch: Seat count on 787-9 incorrect EFB OPT: take off performance calculation enhanced to provide optimal flap and derate settings EFB: Brightness controls inop FMS: VNAV initial climb speed does not command V2+15 FMS: improvements to lateral and vertical route depiction FMS: improvements to lateral and vertical route tracking FMS: VNAV Wind Forecast Page added FMS: DIRECT TO will cause the T/D symbol to be off course on ND FMS: After go around programming a new route is missing the first waypoint of the new route SYSTEMS: Anti-Ice logic reworked SYSTEMS – FUEL SYNOPTIC: Crossfeed valve logic issues SYSTEMS: TOGA key assignment does not work SYSTEMS: Fuel jettison does not work on 787-9 model SYSTEMS: Engines stuck in full thrust after take off (noticed on RR) SYSTEMS: EMER LIGHT EICAS message shows after loading a panelstate SYSTEMS: Overspeed warning triggers prematurely when P3D settings are set to “true airspeed” instead of “indicated airspeed” VISUALS: VC night lighting textures improved (RealLight) VISUALS: VC material reflectivity improved VISUALS: left RR engine reflectivity issues VISUALS: top fuselage beacon splash on wings too bright VISUALS: Vertex welding issue on APU Door. Causes dark shadow in corner of APU door VISUALS: “Mirror” windows on exterior model VISUALS: Some parts, such as the vertical fuse “joints” are inverted in the bump maps, causing these to look pushed into the fuselage. VISUALS: Users are confused when STORM lights override all other light controls. Changed logic to initialize DOME light instead of STORM light when loading the plane at night VISUALS: text night lighting does not work on TCP buttons (fixed in P3D only) VISUALS: blurry MCP Text since V1.1.1 Hotfix A full list of the change long can be found on the QualityWings Simulations Facebook page.

    Laminar Research Shares More 11.30 Update Features Recently posted in the developer blog for X-Plane, Ben Supnik shared two small details about what we can expect in the future from X-Plane 11’s upcoming 11.30 update 4K Panels: In the new update, developers can utilise the higher 4k resolution of panels for their aircraft, to allow for more details and better graphics from their custom, plugin-based textures. It is important to note though, that smooth performance cannot be promised from loading such a high resolution into the aircraft’s systems. Cockpit Objects: 11.30 will allow developers to utilise a single .obj (object) file for loading the cockpits of their aircraft, so no duplicated are required for products that are released with varying fuselages or engine types for the same cockpit. Plane-Maker will also automatically reconfigure old aircraft to follow the new setup of having the cockpit object listed as a ‘misc’ object within the menus, so developers need not worry about manually updating this. That’s all for now; more news to come regarding 11.30 as we get it.

Enjoy our series of clips and films about being trained by and working as a pilot for the Lufthansa Group. Check out their link for more details on how to join: https://www.european-flight-academy.com/en/ Swiss International Air Lines AG (short Swiss) is the national airline of Switzerland operating scheduled services in Europe and to North America, South America, Africa and Asia. Its main hub is Zurich Airport, with a focus city operation at Geneva Airport. The airline was formed after the 2002 bankruptcy of Swissair, Switzerland's former flag carrier. It was built around Swissair's former regional subsidiary, Crossair. The airline retains Crossair's IATA code LX (Swissair's code was SR). It took over Swissair's old ICAO code of SWR (Crossair's was CRX), in order to keep international traffic rights. It is a member of the Star Alliance. It is a subsidiary of the Lufthansa Group, with headquarters at EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg near Basel, Switzerland, and an office at Zurich Airport in Kloten, Switzerland. The company's registered office is in Basel. The Airbus A330 is a medium- to long-range wide-body twin-engine jet airliner made by Airbus. Versions of the A330 have a range of 5,000 to 13,430 kilometres (2,700 to 7,250 nmi; 3,110 to 8,350 mi) and can accommodate up to 335 passengers in a two-class layout or carry 70 tonnes (154,000 lb) of cargo. The A330's origin dates to the mid-1970s as one of several conceived derivatives of Airbus's first airliner, the A300. The A330 was developed in parallel with the four-engine A340, which shared many common airframe components but differed in number of engines. Both airliners incorporated fly-by-wire flight control technology, first introduced on an Airbus aircraft with the A320, as well as the A320's six-display glass cockpit. In June 1987, after receiving orders from various customers, Airbus launched the A330 and A340. The A330 was Airbus's first airliner that offered a choice of three engine types: General Electric CF6, Pratt & Whitney PW4000, and Rolls-Royce Trent 700. The A330-300, the first variant, took its maiden flight in November 1992 and entered passenger service with Air Inter in January 1994. Airbus followed up with the slightly shorter A330-200 variant in 1998. Subsequently-developed A330 variants include a dedicated freighter, the A330-200F, a military tanker, the A330 MRTT, and a corporate jet, ACJ330. The A330 MRTT formed the basis of the proposed KC-45, entered into the US Air Force's KC-X competition with Northrop Grumman, where after an initial win, on appeal lost to Boeing's tanker. Since its launch, the A330 has allowed Airbus to expand market share in wide-body airliners. Competing twinjets include the Boeing 767 and 777, along with the 787. The long-range Airbus A350 XWB was planned to succeed both the A330 and A340. Airbus intends to replace the current A330 (referred to as the A330ceo (current engine option) since 2014) with the A330neo, which includes new engines and other improvements. As of June 2018, A330 orders stand at 1,715, of which 1,408 have been delivered and 1,374 remain in operation. The largest operator is Turkish Airlines with 65 A330s in its fleet.SOURCE

    Hi guys, I just uploaded a new video on youtube in which I talk about the new update (v0.04) for our Lockheed Vega 5. The update will be available on Friday (fingers crossed and thumbs pressed (that's the German version of fingers crossed)). Here's what you can expect of it: I'm very excited about the new effects that come with the update. This includes start-up, smoke, a new landing light, touchdown, etc. The effects are custom designed and provided by: And look amazing! I also decided to give my physics engine a name. It shall henceforth be known that the Wing42 Lockheed Vega 5 is powered by: Please note that the price of the Vega will increase by 5 Euros with this update. If you purchase it before version 0.04 you'll be only pay the introductory price of 25 Euros. (Plus, don't forget the TSL discount) Cheers, Vitus

    After the two GTA cartoonish places Bamboo Island and Ko Poda Island in front of Krabis coastline, I took a few weeks vacation on the mainland to find out how to deal with a huge map without autogen. How to give the rocks the right look and how to make the rainforest look like rainforest. In the course of this I have built a wild illegal airstrip that is so terrible that you can only land with STOL Planes and helicopters. Around the runway I tried to capture the typical Thai chaos and . I am determined to provide an executable version of this free of charge this year. My focus in this project is on acting against the perfect clean sim world where there are only beautiful things - especially the dark side of the area to work out Here are current WIP impressions.

    Oh gosh, no, of course not!! Those who already bought the Vega automatically get access to the new installer as soon as it is released! The increased price is for any new customer, and I wanted to point out that you can still benefit from the lower price the Vega has right now if you purchase her before the next update. Sorry for not making that more clear.
