    Sean Moloney is back! 
    Vertx Flight Simulation has today announced the impending release of their inaugural product for the Prepar3D v4platform, the Diamond DA62. The developer, whose name you will likely not recognise, is actually the new project from Sean Moloney. Sean is best known for his work as one half of RealAir, who are well known as having produced some of the best GA aircraft on the FSX/P3D platform.
    In the press release sent to FSElite earlier today, Vertx has portrayed the DA62 product as a high-quality simulation with unmatched clarity and animation smoothness in the G1000 PFD, something that some developers seem to struggle in being able to perfect. Also built into the G1000 is a flight planner, allowing creation, saving and loading of flight plans within the aircraft, but also enabling the import of the built-in P3D flight planner’s files.
    The G1000 has been designed with precision to realistically represent the operation of the real world avionics, including VNAV, LPV approaches and glideslope, pitch hold, enroute turn anticipation, course-wheel-steering, accurate direct-to operation and OBS mode are all simulated.

    The first new Amphibian design in  over 60 years according to the developer of the plane.
    The Privateer is powered by a 724-HP Walter 601 turbine engine, and expected to cruise at 215 knots.
    It has a roomy cabin with room for 5-6 passengers, and it can land on both water and land.
    It certainly got a unique design.

    Bj√łrn Nyland is kind of celebrity in the world of Teslas.¬†¬†He has been making youtube videos about his experiences in the Tesla cars since day one, along with other electric cars.
    This time he is showing us a flight in Norways first electric plane, a Pipistrel Alpha Electro.

    Norway has been in the front promoting electric cars, and now Avinor, a state-owned limited company that operates most of the civil airports in Norway has bought an electric plane.
    "The new plane will be used for demonstration purposes, but the aim is clear: Norway shall become the first market in which electric aircraft represent a significant share."

  22. tarpoon liked a post in a topic by Vitus in Lockheed Vega 5 inbound   
    Hey guys,
    I hope I'm not overreaching with this shameless self-promotion. But I hope that what I'm working on might be of interest to you and your viewers. I am currently developing a Lockheed Vega 5 for FSX and P3D. It will be released as an early-alpha version and I hope I get a nice flow of suggestions and critiques that will help to build an awesome product for the sim. You can find some information on my website www.wing42.com. I also just today published a first video on youtube to showcase some of the features. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-LYUddA5mk
    I'm currently reaching out to various youtubers and flightsim communities to get some exposure for this project and hope that you could help getting the word out. contact me via email store@wing42.com if you have any more questions.
    Kind Regards,
    Vitus
