  1. Why, yes, @OMGEDSON, I work in Campbell River. And, great job! Corilair is the company that does the mail run flights! I could not remember who it was. Apparently a huge draw for tourists visiting Campbell River. We call Campbell River, Hazard County. Due to 90% of the population look and talk like they're from the south and 90% of the population drink Lucky Beer. Awful stuff! Lucky Lager. Lucky Lager can from 1958. ... Lucky Lager is a mass producedbeer, generally sold at a low price, that was originally made by General BrewingCompany in San Francisco, California beginning soon after the repeal of prohibition. It has a large cult following on Vancouver Island.

  3. Dear All, Today, we’ve released the F-14 into early access after years of intensive development. We truly hope you’re enjoying it! We’re monitoring all of the forums, hoggit and e-mails and are moving quickly and assertively to correct any critical issues and mistakes. This module represents the culmination of exhaustive research and intensive development, where we attempted to push the boundaries of what was possible with a desktop flight simulation. The challenge and passion associated with this project ushed us to deliver the very best that our broad backgrounds and formal training allowed us. We pushed those boundaries, both because of Heatblur’s commitment to providing the highest quality product possible, and because the F-14A/B represented a passion project for many members of the team. We were and still are driven to get this project right! And today, we have the pleasure of announcing something even bigger, which will allow us to unlock our true potential, and to raise the bar even higher. Over the past few weeks, we’ve been working on taking the next big step forward for our company and team. We’ve progressed discussions with a group that will be our new partners for the continued development of Heatblur. We’ve found our interests to be very much aligned and thus, Heatblur Simulations is becoming a part of MetaSimulations, which is a part of the Meta Aerospace group. Together with Meta, we will be able to combine the resources and expertise of a real world aerospace operator with our passion, experience and drive in the field of simulation. We’re incredibly excited about the potential and capability Meta brings to the field of simulation. This amazing opportunity to become a part of Meta will help us redefine what the cutting edge of simulation is, through the amplification of every great quality found in Heatblur. With Heatblur and Meta working together, there are absolutely no limits to what we can achieve. Beyond this, it assures and guarantees that the Viggen, Tomcat and other future Heatblur products will remain on the absolute cutting edge in terms of quality and execution. This transition will allow us to continue building our team and help ensure that we have the resources to fully support our modules in the future. Thank you for your support, we’re so excited for our future together and what that means for you as consumers, and we hope you are too! Sincerely, Heatblur Simulations www.metasimulations.aero __________________ Nicholas Dackard Founder & Lead Artist Heatblur Simulations https://www.facebook.com/heatblur/ SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : https://store.heatblur.com/ NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK : https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?p=3835473#post3835473

  5. Bell Nexus. Image via Bell Bell rings in the new year by revealing its autonomous VTOL aircraft at the Consumer Electronics Show. President and CEO Mitch Snyder says travel by air taxi will be a reality by the mid 2020s. Bell unveiled its vertical-takeoff-and-landing (VTOL) autonomous air taxi at a press event at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas today. The Bell Nexus, named to signify the convergence of transport and technology and of comfort and convenience, will enter service as part of the Uber Elevate initiative, which plans to launch fleets of electric VTOL aircraft in Dallas, Los Angeles and an unnamed international market by the mid 2020s. Mitch Snyder, Bell’s president and CEO, introduced the Bell Nexus VTOL aircraft at CES on Monday. Bell, which, according to president and CEO Mitch Snyder, dropped Helicopters from its name to better reflect its focus on creating opportunities in urban air mobility, showcased a version of its air taxi cabin concept at CES last year. This year, the company will display an updated, full-scale mockup of the hybrid-electric powered vehicle, equipped with six tilting ducted fans. While Bell is leading the design, development and production of the Bell Nexus, it’s collaborating with Safran (hybrid propulsion and drive systems), EPS (energy storage systems), Thales (Flight Control Computer hardware and software), Moog (flight control actuation systems) and Garmin (avionics and the vehicle management computer) to bring the on-demand mobility solution to market. View image on Twitter Room for One More The Bell Nexus is a four-passenger vehicle with space for a pilot or mission manager. “The aircraft is designed to be fully automated,” Snyder announced at today’s press conference. “Once the regulatory authorities and community accept that it’s ok to not have a pilot, then it will be a five-passenger vehicle.” Bell Nexus interior. Image via Bell Bell will also have a flight simulator at CES this year in order to determine how the average person might operate the Bell Nexus. “We want to see what’s intuitive for people to learn how to fly these as opposed to just pilots,” Snyder explained. Coming Soon to a City Near You Bell aims to make air taxis that are safe, quiet and affordable. “We’re still working with Uber to determine the cost of traveling in the vehicle but it’s going to be more affordable than you think,” Snyder said. “The ability of these aircraft to [complete] multiple trips within an hour window allows you to work the economics in a favorable way,” added Michael Thacker, Bell’s executive vice-president of Technology and Innovation. While Bell is working closely with Uber, Thacker insists that the company is setting its sights even further. “We are taking Uber’s specifications into consideration, but this vehicle actually goes beyond what the Uber specifications require,” he said. “While Uber is one of the potential applications, it’s not the only one.” Snyder and Thacker are optimistic about the timeline. “Defining and developing urban air mobility is a complex undertaking, requiring collaboration across industries, regulatory agencies and other communities of interest,” Snyder said. “Although there is still a lot of work to be done, the future is real, it’s possible, and it’s coming soon.” SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK : https://apex.aero/2019/01/07/bell-nexus-uber-elevate-vtol-air-taxi-ces
  6. Engine trouble caused aircraft forced landing copyrightAAIB The aircraft hit a furrow in a field and was flipped upside down A microlight aircraft landed upside down in a field after a "probable" fuel problem caused its engine to stall, a report found. The Flight Design CTSW was five nautical miles from Sywell Aerodrome in Northamptonshire when the pilot made a forced landing, the Air Accidents Investigation Branch report said. The landing gear collapsed when the plane hit a furrow, flipping the craft. The two pilots were not hurt but the plane was damaged beyond repair. The accident happened on 15 September as the pilot and passenger - another qualified pilot - were returning to the airfield after a short flight. The aircraft was returning to Sywell Aerodrome after flying over Deenethorpe Airfield and Market Harborough The report stated the engine "coughed" before stopping, forcing the pilot to choose a suitable field in order to land. However, he had no choice but to make a downwind landing, meaning "the touchdown was at a higher groundspeed than the pilot would have liked". "The pilot was beginning to apply the brakes gently to avoid locking the wheels when the nose dropped suddenly and the aircraft lurched forward, coming to rest upside down." the report said. The AAIB said the "cause of the engine failure could not be positively determined". The report concluded "the failure was probably due to a fuel supply issue".
