  1. Fully pulling our pants down again yes and not even a discount for people who have already bought it twice, disgusting way to treat their customers again.
  2. Captain sim are trying to charge us again for this aircraft. I first bought it in Fsx many years ago, then they charged us again for the exact same aircraft, just to port it to p3d v2 and now they are trying to charge us another $50 plus $19 for the cargo version, to port it for v4!. Even though this was one of my all time favourite aircraft in the sim, They will not be getting another penny from me.

  4. XM607 Falklands' Most Daring Raid The Avro Vulcan (sometimes referred to as the Hawker Siddeley Vulcan) is a jet-powered delta wing strategic bomber, which was operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF) from 1956 until 1984. Aircraft manufacturer A.V. Roe and Company (Avro) designed the Vulcan in response to Specification B.35/46. Of the three V bombers produced, the Vulcan was considered the riskiest option. Several scale aircraft, designated Avro 707, were produced to test and refine the delta wing design principles. The Vulcan B.1 was first delivered to the RAF in 1956; deliveries of the improved Vulcan B.2 started in 1960. The B.2 featured more powerful engines, a larger wing, an improved electrical system and electronic countermeasures (ECM); many were modified to accept the Blue Steel missile. As a part of the V-force, the Vulcan was the backbone of the United Kingdom's airborne nuclear deterrent during much of the Cold War. Although the Vulcan was typically armed with nuclear weapons, it was capable of conventional bombing missions, a capability which was used in Operation Black Buck during the Falklands War between Britain and Argentina in 1982. The Vulcan had no defensive weaponry, initially relying upon high-speed high-altitude flight to evade interception. Electronic countermeasures were employed by the B.1 (designated B.1A) and B.2 from circa 1960. A change to low-level tactics was made in the mid-1960s. In the mid-1970s nine Vulcans were adapted for maritime radar reconnaissance operations, redesignated as B.2 (MRR). In the final years of service six Vulcans were converted to the K.2 tanker configuration for aerial refuelling. Since retirement by the RAF one example, B.2 XH558, named "The Spirit of Great Britain" has been restored for use in display flights and air shows, whilst two other B.2s, XL426 and XM655, are kept in taxiable condition for ground runs and demonstrations at London Southend Airport and Wellesbourne Mountford Airfield respectively.

  10. VATSIM swift Client Available in Open Beta After six years of development, the swift client is now available to the public to use. It is a brand new client supported by VATSIM, which is cross-compatible with all major flight simulator platforms including Microsoft Flight Simulator X, Lockheed Martin Prepar3D and X-Plane. FlightGear has also been included in the mix of supported simulators. Further to the compatibility with the modern sims, Windows, Linux and MacOS are also supported. The swift client has been designed to be a “very powerful client” and easy to use. It will work to bring a cohesive online experience regardless of the platform you’re using or flying on. With the online database storing detailed information about all possible AI and flyable models, liveries, aircraft types and airports, it should mean no more model mismatch. It should mean regardless of what you’re using, others on the network will see you correctly. The development team have also worked with vPilot to ensure that information regarding aircraft animation is also exchanged. This means you will be able to see landing lights, flaps, gear and more all animate and switch on/off accurately as the user completes the task across any simulator. To ensure that development will continue, the swift client is fully open source. You can see the source code on the development page. The team are encouraging people with an interest in supporting development, fixing bugs or implement ideas to visit and get involved. The idea is that the swift client will become something really owned by the community. The public beta phase, which is what this product is currently in, has been tested by Alpha testers who have reported a positive experience. However, there are still some bugs, features missing and also a few user-interface problems which are being worked on. Feedback from the community will help to resolve some of these issues. If you would like to participate in the Open Beta of swift, you can head to the swift project page, where you can find documentation and download links. Support links can also be found through the same link. Thank you to FSXLiveries, Delta-Bravo and also siumai-hargow from our Discord for the tip and images. swift joins the official approved pilot clients for VATSIM.

  11. This really tells us how disconnected from their customers CS really are. The only aircraft they should be concentrating on is their Tristar and 707 which we have been waiting for now for well over a year, it's a complete waste of time and effort in updating the 777 as it is possibly their weakest and least popular addon from all the people I know who own their products. The aircraft that CaptainSim have always excelled at has always been the non FMC airliners. We are nearly at the end of p3d V4 cycle and there is no sign of their two best addons, the same two addons that we have to purchase twice since there FSX beginnings . Every one I know who uses their stuff is frustrated and unhappy with this plane being updated first! Terrible decision. 😡

  13. Tailstrike Designs’ Reggio Calabria (LICR) PBR Previews To follow behind their set of runway previews, Tailstrike Designs has provided us with some exclusive previews of their forthcoming Reggio Calabria (LICR) Airport add-on for Prepar3D v4. Reggio di Calabria Airport is a regional airport located right at the bottom-end of Italy which caters flights to destinations within the region such as Milan, Rome and Turin. Its prominent carriers are Alitalia, Blue Air and Blue Panorama Airlines. These previews of Reggio Calabria focus on the PBR texturing and effects on the tower and terminal building based on real-world pictures. Tailstrike Designs’ rendition of LICR will feature a 3D surrounding cityscape, accurate approach lights, PBR and accurate modelling based on real-world photos, plans and video. We’ll endeavour to keep you up-to-date on the latest regarding Tailstrike Designs’ development of Reggio Calabria. Are you a developer and are looking to implement PBR into your project? Tailstrike Designs developer, Davide, has posted a guide on how he achieved the effect he has on this very project. Check it out on FSDeveloper.

  14. Speaker Schedule and New Partnership News for FlightSimExpo 2019 Only 58 days stand between right now and the start of FlightSimExpo 2019. North America’s community-driven flight simulation is stepping things up this year. A new location, bigger venue and more exhibitors than ever before – there will be something for everyone to enjoy at this year’s event. One of the highlights of these shows is the wide-range of speakers and seminars that will be taking place. This year is no different with a large number of speakers taking the time to talk about a wide variety of subjects. The line-up consists of YouTubers Jason Miller and Steve Thorne (“FlightChops”) who will speak about the benefits of the simulator and how it can be applied to real-world training. After that, Twitch streamer Chillywillies will moderate a panel designed to connect attendees to flight simulation developers. Talking about their experiences, challenges and what they predict will happen in the industry next. Over the course of the day, on the 8th June, a variety of developers and publishers will be taking to the stage for 30 minutes to announce new products or talk about their upcoming software. Some of the big names to take to the stage include Prepar3D, Virtual-Fly, Mettar Simulations and Gleim Aviation. Others who will have the stage include Parallel 42, Noble Flight Simulation and Mindstar Aviation. The following day, there will be additional talks and seminars. The talks on the Sunday 9th of June will feature a range of discussions on how the first-time simmer can get involved in the community. Whilst super nervous, I am also excited to confirm that I will be on stage delivering a talk on taking people on a brief overview on getting them started in simulation. In addition to me, Sebastian Knoop-Troullier, and Ethan Hawes will also take to the stage taking attendees through other important elements of setting up and using an at-home simulator.
