OMGEDSON liked a post in a topic by eaim1973 in UK2000 Scenery 2019/20 Roadmap
UK2000 Scenery has provided the community with an overview of their current workload for the upcoming year and beyond. Taking to Facebook, the team announced that they have plans for further FS2004 airports (despite their previous statement), building new technology for next year and also a range of airports which will continue to be ported to X-Plane 11.
The first piece of information is that Bournemouth Xtreme is almost finished. The final beta checks are going through right now – release is expected in Mid-February. This will be the last Xtreme airport from UK2000 Scenery, as they are looking to build the new toolset for new products from now on. With that in mind, the team did confirm that as the ‘Xtreme’ technology is capable of rendering for FS2004, the team decided to add both Bournemouth and Belfast V2 to their work flow to make it compatible with the older simulator. This means that their entire Xtreme Airport selection will be available for all sims in the future. No more updates (other than fixing bugs and adding SODE jetways) will be made for airports in the Xtreme package.
In regards to the aforementioned new technology, it was confirmed that 2019 will see the team build the new tool set to enable a brand new range of updates to come out from 2020 and beyond. The first two airports to see this new technology will be Luton Airport and Bristol Airport. They also confirmed that new airports will also be made including the Isle of Man.
As for X-Plane 11 users: the team shared their Trello board to give an overview of upcoming projects. From the list, 13 airports are currently in development for X-Plane 11 conversion (or will be in the future). This includes the likes of Jersey, Heathrow and Belfast.
That’s all the information shared. Once new airports are released or if there are updates, we’ll be sure to let you know.

Airbus A310s are getting more and more rare these days and even in the German Air Force their days are counted as they will soon be replaced by a multinational European fleet of Airbus A330s. Thus a good point in time for the AirClips team to join a Luftwaffe flight from Cologne Bonn to Tiflis and back with their 20+ cameras for creating a thorough documentation of both this wonderful aircraft type and the super professional airline-like flight operations of Deutsche Luftwaffe.
This is an exclusive scene from the full A310 ULTIMATE COCKPIT MOVIE of that rotation (two flights in one film) which will also be published on this channel - totally free of charge as always - on Friday December 21st 2018 10am CET!
Also do not miss to watch the takeoff and landing shown in this movie as exclusive 360-degree videos, ideally using your VR goggles:

The Airbus A310 is a medium- to long-range twin-engined wide-body jet airliner that was developed and manufactured by Airbus, then a consortium of European aerospace manufacturers. It was the second airliner to be produced by the company, the first being the A300. The A310 is a smaller derivative of the A300, which held the distinction of being the first twin-engined widebody airliner.
The German Air Force (German: Luftwaffe) is the aerial warfare branch of the Bundeswehr, the armed forces of Germany. With a strength of 27,704 personnel (30 June 2018), it is the fourth largest air force within the European Union, after the air forces of the United Kingdom, France and Italy. Although its budget has been significantly reduced since the end of the Cold War in 1989–1990, the Luftwaffe is still among the best-equipped air forces in the world.
The German Air Force (as part of the Bundeswehr) was founded in 1956 during the era of the Cold War as the aerial warfare branch of the armed forces of then West Germany. After the reunification of West and East Germany in 1990, it integrated parts of the air force of the former German Democratic Republic, which itself had been founded in 1956 as part of the National People's Army. There is no organizational continuity between the current German Air Force and the former Luftwaffe of the Wehrmacht combined forces founded in 1935, which was completely disbanded in 1945/46 after World War II. The term Luftwaffe that is used for both the historic and the current German air force is the German-language generic designation of any air force.SOURCE

The @airclipstraveller had the great opportunity to substitute his Lufthansa A321 flight from Hamburg to Frankfurt by an exclusive private jet ride. A great start into 2019 as especially the lack of cockpit doors made this one an unexpected cockpit film. Welcome aboard, enjoy!
Air Hamburg Luftverkehrsgesellschaft mbH is a German airline based in Hamburg. It offers scheduled and charter flights to German North Sea islands as well as international flights with business jets. Originally the two young entrepreneurs Floris Helmers and Alexander Lipsky conducted the Flight School Hamburg and enlarged it in the last years. The business has since been expanded with sightseeing and taxi flights to the North and East Frisian Islands under the name AIR HAMBURG with single and twin-engined aircraft in 2005. Besides Sylt, the destinations Helgoland, Juist and Norderney were added subsequently. Another brand, AIR HAMBURG Private Jets was also established to offer business jet charter services to more distant destinations from Hamburg Airport. The company employs close to 400 members of staff.
he Cessna CitationJet/M2/CJ series (Model 525) are light business jets built by Cessna and part of the Citation family. Launched in October 1989, its first flight was on April 29, 1991, FAA certification was awarded on October 16, 1992, first delivery happened on March 30, 1993, and by June 2017, 2,000 of all variants have been delivered. Powered by two 1,900 lbf (8.5 kN) Williams FJ44s, it uses the Citation II's forward fuselage with a new carry-through section, straight wing, and T-tail. The basic model was updated with the CJ/CJ1/M2 names, it was stretched in the CJ2/CJ2+ delivered since 2000, then further in the CJ3/CJ3+ delivered from December 2004 and finally in the CJ4 delivered since 2010. Cessna launched the $2.4 million model 525 CitationJet at the October 1989 NBAA convention in Atlanta, estimating a demand for 1,000 aircraft over ten years. Succeeding the 700 original Citation Is produced since 1972, first flight was scheduled for spring 1991, FAA certification in October 1992 and deliveries by the end of the year.
Its first flight was on April 29, 1991, FAA certification was awarded on October 16, 1992, and first delivery happened on March 30, 1993. Twenty years after its first flight, 1,450 CJs have been produced. As of June 2017, 2,000 of all variants have been delivered with five million hours flown. The six-seat jet uses the Citation II's forward fuselage, a new carry-through section, a new laminar flow, supercritical wing developed with NASA and Boeing, and a T-tail. Powered by two 1,900 lbf (8.5 kN) Williams FJ44s, the 10,000 lb (4,500 kg) aircraft has a trailing link undercarriage for smooth landings and can be flown by a single pilot. Cabin length is reduced by 1 ft 6 in (46 cm), range is 1,500 nmi (2,800 km) with four passengers and it can cruise at 437 mph (380 kn).
Its FJ44 bypass ratio is 3.3:1 with a 16:1 overall pressure ratio, its wing area is 240 sq ft (22 m2) and it can cruise at Mach 0.7 (413 kn; 764 km/h). It features EFIS avionics, its fuselage is 11 inches (27 cm) shorter than the Citation I's, but has a lowered center aisle for increased cabin height. The CitationJet is a low-wing cantilever monoplane with retractable tricycle landing gear and a pressurized cabin, engines are pylon mounted on the rear fuselage. Model 525A serial numbers 0300 and higher, marketed as the CitationJet CJ2+ and first delivered in April 2006, offer increased performance with updated avionics and Williams FJ44-3A-24 turbofans with FADEC control. In 2014, Cessna started offering an upgrade package for the CJ2+ called Alpine Edition. It incorporates Garmin G3000 avionics and new cabin stylings similar to those introduced by Cessna to the CJ1+ when it became the M2. The CJ2 went out of production due to low demand in January 2016.SOURCE

DC Design Give Brief Update on Farnborough
One of the UK's most important airport locations.
We introduced you to DC Design a few weeks ago. This new developer’s first project is the UK airport Farnborough. Since then, the team has kept people informed with development.
This week, the team has worked on ensuring it colour matches as closely as possible with Orbx EU England, with all roads and buildings blending in nicely. Once this is done, DC Design will work on seasonal textures and ensuring that textures replace the satellite imagery as best as possible.
As the airport has a huge number of buildings in the surrounding area, DC Design has decided to make sure that a fairly large area is covered by the product. Whilst it may add additional work, the team are confident that it will enhance the product and make it much more immersive for the community.
A single screenshot of the area was shown off, but a few weeks prior, an additional preview of the control tower was shared. We’ve included both below.

KPDX Gets New Features + Fixes
Version 1.1 adds new content and fixes a couple bugs
Today, we released a new update for KPDX for P3Dv4 that adds some new stuff and fixes a couple of minor glitches.
The airport fire station complex and fuel tanks have been added to the NW corner of the airport Dynamic SODE-driven windsocks with custom animations have been added (how did we miss that?) A custom model of the Glenn Jackson (I-205) bridge has been added, with night lighting and custom traffic flow Lots more autogen trees added to the photoreal area of North Portland In addition, we fixed a few hatch marks on the ground poly that got somehow bumped out of place before the final export, and added the trees back into an autogen tile for Orbx KVUO that overlapped with KPDX.
How do I get the update?
It couldn't be simpler. If you're one of the many who already own KPDX, launch the Flightbeam Manager and click the KPDX tab. There will be a link to follow to auto-update your version.
If you don't have KPDX yet, the changes are now folded into the full installer, which you can purchase at https://iblueyonder.com/portfolio/kpdx-hd/.
What if I don't care about P3Dv4 add-ons?
So glad you asked! We just updated our mailing list system with a new set of sub-groups that allow you to set your preference for what sim platforms you want to hear about. To set your preference, go to your My Account page on iBlueYonder.com and fill in the "Join Our Mailing List" form at the top of the page. Since you're receiving this, you're already on the list.

RFSceneryBuilding Announces Lampedus Aeroporto & Umbria International Airport
Russian developer RFSceneryBuilding has announced a double whammy of airports coming to FSX/P3D in the near future. The new projects are LICD Lampedua Aeroport and LIRZ Sant Egidio (Umbria International Airport) in Perguia Italy.
Lampedusa Airport, on the Italian island of the same name sees traffic from local airlines such as Alitalia and Blu-Express. It’s mostly only used as an airport during the summer so hopefully, we see it around then so we can take advantage of it in our virtual world.
Umbria International Airport is used even less frequently, with only a few scheduled routes from Ryanair and Albawings.
If you’re curious about their past work, RFSceneryBuilding has developed Venice, Turin and Florence as some of their past Italian offerings.
Both projects are in development, and that’s all the news we have on them for now.

Quito (SEQM) Announced by Flightbeam Studios
Flightbeam Studios just posted a Facebook update to inform the community that, in conjunction with Dreamflight, they’re almost ready to release SEQM airport, in Quito, Ecuador!
This unique airport is located at an elevation of 7,874 feet, and as the busiest airport in Ecuador, will offer you many interesting new routes (and for me, it’s another great reason to explore Orbx’s OpenLC South America). American, Delta, JetBlue, Joon, KLM, and United are the airlines based outside of South America that service the airport, and it’s also a relatively busy cargo hub, as it receives flights from Atlas, Cargolux, Etihad Cargo, Emirates SkyCargo, FedEx, KLM Cargo, and UPS. As the runway is over 13,000 feet long, it’s quite accommodating.
Dreamflight is developing the airport, as an exclusive product for, and using the branding of, Flightbeam. Flightbeam is continuing work on their other projects, including Wellington, Auckland, and InsectFlow.
No exact release date was given, but they say it’s ‘coming soon’ – so we hope to hear more about it very shortly! Stay tuned to FSElite for more and you can also follow the developer’s Facebook page as well.

Nimbus Simulation Studios have been working on the Huey since early March, however, it has seen little spotlight since the release of Chicago O'Hare (KORD) V3. The project appears to be back on track, however, with new previews posted on the group's Facebook page.
The military utility helicopter was used by the US Army and Air Force during the war in Vietnam, with over 7,000 iterations of 30 variants deployed there.

The previews that surfaced today are of the UH-1 Iroquois flying around the Caribbean island of St. Barth's, which Nimbus developed scenery for. They show a relatively complete helicopter, with functions such as the weight & balance menus being previewed for the first time.

The only time I've seen the world's largest plane toyed-with by severe weather, and in particular windshear which caused other flights to abort the approach.
The Easyjet A320 simply didn't try again and diverted away.
This was a day when the wind grew stronger as it moved towards crosswind direction, finally erupting as shown here.
The runway having been drenched minutes earlier, the avalanche of reverse thrust spray capped the Emirates giant's performance!SOURCE
