  1. OMGEDSON liked a post in a topic by TomcatUK in Update from QualityWings | 787 PBR & remote CDU coming soon   
    Fellow Loungers,
    I have just received an update from QualityWings via Facebook which contains a variety of updates on updates and other development work, this related to their Ultimate 146, 757 and 787 products. The most interesting for me personally is the introduction of PBR materials and a remote CDU (on your phone, tablet etc) for the 787 product, 'due soon' as part of the upcoming v1.1.3 update.
    ==
    For those of you that are not on Facebook, the main updates by product are as follows:
    Ultimate 146
    Following the release of the Ultimate 146 for Prepar3D Version 4, we received some unbelievably positive feedback and will be providing an update for the 146 in P3DV4 soon. Development work is complete for this update and it is currently undergoing final stages of testing. Ultimate 757
    Around the time that we announced that that the 146 was being worked on for a release in P3DV4, we also indicated that the 757 was also in development for the platform. There was a bit more work than anticipated to make the product work in P3DV4, but we assure you that it is in the works. With that said, I must also acknowledge that we are aware of some of the difficulties being experienced by some of this product regarding the activation process. We do apologize for any inconvenience. We will be moving our current Ultimate 757 product from the Esellerate system and migrating the customer database to the Flight1 licensing system. That should alleviate some of the issues some of you may have been experiencing. Again, please bear with us as we work through this transition, which will coincide with the release of the product into P3DV4. Ultimate 787
    As previously mentioned, we are continuing to improve the 787 and Update 1.1.3 is due soon. This update to the 787 includes some exciting new additions, one is a result of improved features available with the release of P3D Version 4.4: Physically Based Rendering The 787s models and textures have been adapted to take advantage of these exciting and impressive visual features. PBR is really exciting stuff, but it’s too bad that the 787 fuselage isn’t completely aluminum. Because it would sure be fun to see how that looks. But I guess we will have to wait for upcoming products in development that can really show off bare metal. We sill think it helps the 787 visuals tremendously. We highly encourage everyone to upgrade to the latest version of P3D to benefit from the improved visuals. PBR models will not be available for FSX and outdated versions of P3Dv4. ==

    Plus, additional info via the FSElite page:

    In addition to PBR, the next version of the Ultimate 787 will bring support for Remote CDU on the lower MFD and the Electronic Flight Bag. Remote CDU will mean you can see any page from the lower display (including the FMS) on multiple mobile devices including Android tablets/phones, Apple products and even Windows tablets and phones.



    Finally, the team gave a brief list of other updates users can expect in the upcoming update:

    ·       Significant Stability Improvements

    ·       Autothrottle oscillations above Mach .85

    ·       Improved Panel state loading

    ·       PFD Speedtape coffin corner simulation

    ·       And many more

    No timeline was given on when this update would be made available.

  5. TomcatUK liked a post in a topic by Ivana Fly in Trial by turbulence - A380 thrown around but gets through   
    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

  7. TomcatUK liked a post in a topic by avdheide in Orbx Want To Know – Seasons Or Not To Season (TrueEarth)   
    As of right now, the plan Orbx are considering is to release 2 different versions of the product:
    TrueEarth GB South LOD15 Summer Edition TrueEarth GB South LOD14 Seasons Edition Since it was announced that the planned intention of releasing TrueEarth Great Britain on Prepar3D without seasons, there has been a lot of community feedback regarding that decision. Because of the amount of data that would have to be distributed, it would’ve cost Orbx far more than the cost to the consumer to distribute such a large portion of data amongst the community. Understandably, this wouldn’t have been good business sense from the developer.
    However, John V took to the forums today to give a more detailed explanation into why this was the case and that the team has been discussing various options to both deliver for the community and also the business needs.
    The first thing John did was break down what comparing 5 regions would look like if they had all 5 seasons in the current LOD15 quality.
    TE Region Size in Sq Miles Size on Disk Netherlands 16040 72GB Great Britain 80823 360GB Washington 71362 320GB Oregon 98466 440GB California 163696 730GB TOTAL   2TB John said that by delivering 2TB of data to thousands of customers would “pretty much bankrupt Orbx” – nothing any of us would want to happen. It’s also worth remembering that Orbx allows for free, unlimited downloads for life, which again would add to the data distribution costs.
    As a result of wanting to listen to the community, but also protect the business, John put on the table a couple of options and want the community to comment on them (with constructive thoughts).
    Option 1 – Simply, to release TrueEarth Great Britain as it was intended. So with LOD15 (LOD15 is 1.2m per pixel*) resolution and summer seasons only. Orbx Trees will also work with TrueEarth, so seasonal trees will appear throughout depending on the time of year. Some previews of that are below.
    SPRING SUMMER FALL WINTER SPRING SUMMER Option 2 – Option 2 will compromise on some of the quality, but allow the team to create a seasonal texture package, and still be within reasonable file limits.
    Instead of LOD15 detail, Orbx would reduce to LOD14, but will include 5 seasons into the texture set. This would make it the same size as a LOD15 set overall. This is thanks to how P3D can compress BGL images.
    Below, you can see the difference between LOD15 vs LOD14. John said in his post that the differences are discernible at 500ft, but at a usual VFR altitude of 2,500ft, it’s hard to tell.
    LOD15 LOD14 As of right now, the plan Orbx are considering is to release 2 different versions of the product:
    TrueEarth GB South LOD15 Summer Edition TrueEarth GB South LOD14 Seasons Edition Both will be the same price, but Orbx will offer the 40% cross-grade discount between the two. The plan is people can decide which is more important to them as a simmer, and either choose to install one or both – switching them on/off as required.
    As mentioned at the beginning, Orbx are keen to get your feedback on this, so please head to the forums and give them your constructive thoughts.

    Courtesy of BBC news, here is another report showing yet more disruption to commercial aviation caused by drones. The sooner they find a solution to irresponsible and downright dangerous drone flying the better:
    ==
    Passengers at one of the UK's busiest airports have been warned to expect further flight disruption after drones were seen over the airfield.

    Gatwick's runway remains closed after two of the devices were seen nearby, sparking a string of delays and diversions on Wednesday evening.

    Outbound flights were grounded and incoming planes redirected - with some landing in Paris and Amsterdam.
    Passengers due to travel have been told to check the status of their flight.

    More details including the misery passengers endured on diverted flights are available via the link below.

    Dear friends and followers, welcome back and to the first proper interview on my channel.
    I´ve have used "Kennedy Steve´s" voice in countless intro or to explain a ATC related question until I reached out to Steve via one of my videos. A day later he wrote me an e-mail and we planned out to meet for an interview at JFK airport. So I took the next flight to JFK and met with Steve and flew back a couple of hours later.
    You were so kind to send in the question you would like me to ask Steve about his life and career as an airtraffic controller.

    Here are your most asked questions for Steve:

    01:06 - Where die you start your career as an airtraffic controller?
    01:23 - Which positions did you work on?
    01:56 - How long were your shifts?
    02:29 - Which was your favorite position?
    02:52 - What´s your opinion on the JFK layout?
    03:45 - Describe your work with Concorde?
    05:14 - Have you dealt with emergencies at JFK?
    07:12 - The Lufthansa pilot who got out of the plane?
    08:21 - Do you have a favorite airline?
    08:50 - Do you have a favourite airplane?
    09:39 - Were you on duty during 9/11?
    10:19 - Do you have a pilot license?
    10:36 - Can you tell an ATC jokes?
    11:22 - Do you have favorite aviation movie?
    12:00 - Did you ever get in trouble with your supervisor?
    12:45 - Why did you change your voice whilst talking to the tugs?
    13:53 - Have you ever spoken to AirForceOne?

    I really hope you enjoyed this first interview of mine with such a great personality like Kennedy Steve?! I have one more interview to fly too, and I can wait to get started on that one :)

    Thank you very much for your time, wishing you all the best, see you next week!
    Joe

  10. TomcatUK liked a post in a topic by Ivana Fly in BIG Antonov with 24 WHEELS needs a ROUNDABOUT to turn around - Antonov An124 DEPARTURE (4K)   
    Yesterday I filmed another Antononv An124 at Geilenkirchen and usually backtracking planes can just turn around at the end of the runway. This Antonov An124 had to vacate the runway and used a big roundabout to turn around. It` s kinda impressive to see an AN124 perform a 180 turn with all these wheels. The An124 needs 24 wheels to be able to land and depart without any complications. Shortly before the takeoff the Antonov warmed up its engines with a 70% powerrun on the runway. They always do this to improve the performance of the engines and at big airports it often causes go arounds by the approaching planes right behind. The An124 often blocks the runway for more than seven minutes.

    New videos every tuesday and friday.SOURCE
  11. TomcatUK liked a post in a topic by Ivana Fly in Unbelievably short takeoff by C-17 heavy   
    This was a serious military flight, not an opportunity for showboating at some air display.

    The aircraft left on the short hop to its base at Brize Norton probably not much above its empty weight, but to get such a large 130+ tonnes plane (similar to a Boeing 787-9 and Airbus A330-300) into the air off such a miniscule run really took me by surprise!

    It's built for short and poor-quality runways so certainly lived upto its design criteria on this occasion!SOURCE

    Courtesy of FSElite, another developer is starting to showcase P3D V4.4 PBR...
    ==
    With the excitement of Prepar3D V4.4 now starting to die down, developers are starting to pour development efforts into seeing how they can use the new PBR technology in their products. Leonardo Software has already began showing their progress with their MD-XX series, and FSDreamteam with their upcoming Chicago O’Hare. Today, LatinVFR contacted me to inform me that they have been working on updating their current P3DV4 scenery library to include the new PBR texture set.
    The first product to be upgraded to include the new textures will be Santiago SCELv2. The product was originally released earlier last month to positive community reviews. The team has since been working on how they can implement the new technology and have given us the first glimpse into how it looks. Developer Ricardo described Prepar3D V4.4 as a “game changer” and is “very surprised they added this on a current version of P3D.”

    From their website, ASXP will have plenty of features to enhance your experience in X-Plane 11:
    Active Air Effects: Replaces internal X-Plane turbulence and air effects, providing enhanced turbulence, drafts, thermals, terrain-based wind effects, surface friction, gusts, variability, wake turbulence, microbursts and more High-Performance Weather Depiction: Uses internal X-Plane 11.2x/11.3x cloud depiction for maximum performance and smoothness, with multiple weather depiction modes including theme cell “real weather” mode and global static mode – VR compatible and optimized! Active Sky Weather Engine: An evolved version of the Active Sky platform brings the core features that made Active Sky the leading weather engine for other platforms: Advanced weather synthesis and interpolation, high-resolution global winds aloft, realistic air and atmosphere effects, a comprehensive weather data network, integrated visual mapping and planning, and much, much more Voice Weather Delivery: Active Sky ATIS and Flightwatch are available at any time by listening on 122.00, 122.02 or 122.03 for closest station, actual/current interpolated conditions and destination weather reports, respectively Surface Crosswind Attenuation: Optional, for better ground handling in crosswind conditions while preserving headwind/tailwind component for performance accuracy Mobile Companion App: Use any device/browser to connect with Active Sky over your network and view and control the weather It should be noted that cloud replacement textures will not be available just yet:
    We have put our previous X-Plane visual cloud replacement efforts on hold (until next year) due to performance considerations and changing API environment/tools that are not yet finalized We expect our visual cloud replacement technology to debut in Q4 2019, subject to change based on many factors ASXP features high-performance cloud depiction with a focus on conditions accuracy, utilizing the X-Plane internal cloud rendering via a hybrid API approach, with two different modes available ASXP also features an optional high-performance photo-realistic cloud texture replacement with a simple texture installation wizard Additionally, only Windows 64-bit from Windows 7 upwards is supported:
    Mac, Linux and 32-bit X-Plane/Windows versions are not supported In a networked environment, the ASXP application/client may run on Windows 32-bit (7 or later), but X-Plane must be 64-bit on Windows 64-bit (7 or later) We hope to bring additional OS/platform support in the future X-Plane version 11.26 or later (64-bit for Windows) is required And also provided, the list of requirements:
    X-Plane v11.26 or later, 64-bit Windows Version (Mac and 32-bit Windows versions are not compatible) Windows 7 or later, 64-bit Version Active internet connection (broadband recommended) 500mb available hard drive space 1GHZ+ CPU 2GB+ RAM nVidia GTX 500 series or later Graphics Adapter (or equivalent)

    In addition to a modern interior with a spacious, widebody feel, Delta's A220 will feature best-in-class fuel performance. Powered by Pratt & Whitney's latest geared turbofan PW1500G engine, the A220 takes advantage of advanced technology and composite materials designed to deliver an expected 20 percent improvement in fuel efficiency over older, similar-sized aircraft when it enters service with Delta.
    Inaugural A220 flights are set to depart on Jan. 31 from Delta's hub at New York's LaGuardia Airport to its growing operation at Boston Logan International, and from LaGuardia to top business destination Dallas/Ft. Worth.
