The airport has had several expansions over the past 12 years which started with the construction of terminal 3 in 2005 and opened in 2007. From their, they added, and expanded terminals and in 2009, added a new 2800 metre (9200 foot) runway north of the current one.

  15. After a christmas season and newYears eve of illness i started the year with catching up my missed work (the fate of every freelancer). So i had to stop all my other projects. But now, after a finalization and many hours beta testing - i am proud to present KRABI Outback - Adventures at the dark side of xplane. The big scenery project, it was mentioned here before, is now running on almost every system. The map contains 3 Airports for STOL Planes and Bush Pilots - 11 Helipads with ICAO Registration (see the second videoclip to take a look at the Locations) many more Pads that are wild and not listed - hidden objects and many tributes to the XP Community. The Release has handcrafted and handdrawn textures, many custom made objects, a lot of storys that are not told yet. It has also animated Groundroutes - a handmade area connected soundscapes of tropical rainforest noises as well as a timecontrolled special event at the habour that is only happening from the 23.12 to the 27.12 every year. Its free of charge (i must be crazy) and is made with almost no knowledge (i am getting better) and a lot of love. My personal hidden object scenery - inspired by EBOY Posters and Childbooks as well as my favourite destination in asia - Thailand.

  17. Week Highlights: ShortFinal Design tease New Project, xAmbience Released, ASXP Update Coming By: Sam Clark January 20, 2019 The 3rd week of 2019 got off to a good start with news of HighSkyTech releasing the long-awaited weather plugin xAmbience. HST’s 2nd payware addon was slated to release on November 28, however, due to issues in pre-release testing, it was delayed until the end of December and then to early January. ‍ With beta testing of the E1000 by Aerobask in progress,three new previews of their E1000 with the Garmin G1000 were shared this week. The flight model has been tested by a real-world E1000 pilot, and they promise to bring a high-quality aircraft to their users. ‍ Experimental aircraft specialists VSkyLabs have provided further information on their upcoming Revolution Mini-500 helicopter for Laminar's sim. Perhaps the most unique aspect about VSL's latest project is that the single-seater helicopter was only available as a kit-set, with the owner required to assemble the chopper before it's first use. ‍ ‍ Orbx's final TrueEarth Great Britain region, that being the North, has moved into beta stages. This information was shared via post by John Venema on the Orbx preview forum. Check out the full article for more details. ‍ Windsock Simulations previewed another of their conversion projects this week. In partnership with David Rosenfield FSX, they plan to convert his popular Milan Malpensa scenery to Laminar’s sim. See more here. ‍ The dynamic duo of Frank Dainese and Fabio Bellini are working hard on their next X-Plane scenery, based around the peaks of Cerro Torre and Fitz Roy. The completely new X-Plane version traces inspiration from Frank's freeware version for FSX and Prepar3D, which is now 4 years old. New previews surfaced this week via Frank’s blog, which you can see here. ‍ ‍ HiFi Simulation Technologies this week released further information about the first major update to their X-Plane weather engine. Active Sky XP was released back in December and has since received a few small patches to fix immediate bugs with the software, however, is yet to receive any major updates. The plan for the update is to reduce the number of cloud re-draws, one of the largest criticisms of the product. ‍ Developers of the Aerostar 601P for X-Plane, Avia71, have released a major update to the aircraft. The update includes full X-Plane 11.30 and VR compatibility, as well as new icing and de-icing systems. To see the full changelog, see our previous article on them. ‍ Imaginesim, a popular ESP-platform developer, announced and previewed their first X-Plane scenery last week with news of their Austin Bergstrom Airport scenery coming soon to Laminar’s sim. Their first X-Plane project is a conversion of their existing rendition for Prepar3D and FSX. ‍ ‍ X-Plane old timers FlyJSim have shown off more progress on their recently announced Q4XP. The Q4XP is the successor the Q400 V2, however is being built from the ground up, with new modelling being one of the major benefactors of this. In a post on theFlyJSim Pilots Facebook group,FlyJSim PR Manager Dellanie Byron released a video of the Q4XP's wingflex in action. See more in our full article here. ‍ Moving into the weekend, Orbx debuted their latest scenery conversion based aroundFairoaks Airport (EGTF). The airport is nearby the hub of Formula 1 team McLaren, who’s base is included in the scenery. See the new previews here. ‍ Developer Andrzej Borysewicz has uploaded a pair of preview videos of Super-Critical Simulations' next aircraft, the CRJ-700 for X-Plane. The project was initially announced in 2015 and is now closing in on release. See the new preview videos here. ‍ ‍ ShortFinal Design developer MisterX6 released new previews of their upcoming Munich (EDDM) scenery today, along with a sneak preview of their next project. Early speculation appears to point towards SFD’s new project not being based around an airport, but rather a region, perhaps like the recently released JapanPro. ‍ - ‍ That’s all for this week! As always, you can give us some feedback on ourFacebook page, or via the contact form here.

Aircraft labels (the yellow text), content configurable Basic flight modelling: LiveTraffic tries to mimic those aircraft movements, which are not transported by the flight data: Rotate, Pitch, Flare Turns (Roll yet to come, currently wings stay level) Acceleration, Deceleration Gear and Flap movement Lights (Beacon, Navigation, Landing) Landing Simulation in case no more flight data available during approach, so that the aircrafts continues its descend down to the ground, rolls out, stops, and only then vanishes. LiveTraffic is not into taxiing simulation, though... Aircraft and Flight Information Display LiveTraffic can show aircraft information and updated dynamic flight data (like position, speed, altitude and so on) about the aircrafts as shown in X-Plane (which supposingly is very close to reality minus buffering period, but LiveTraffic certainly needs to interpolate between available data points). A/C Info Window Shows aircraft info for one or more aircrafts right within X-Plane. Aircrafts selectable by transponder code, registration, call sign, flight number, and index within LiveTraffic, or Auto-selecting the closest aircraft in viewing direction. Multiple a/c info windows can be opened in parallel. Aircraft Information Window /using-lt/aircraft-information-window Data Refs LiveTraffic makes good use of X-Plane's data ref feature. Historically, this was just meant to ease my development life as I could use the DataRefEditor plugin to change the configuration and read aircrafts' status. Thus, it became the backbone of the configuration object in LiveTraffic and remains available to the outside world. DataRefs /reference/datarefs TCAS TCAS might or might not work. The "TCAS hack" of xplanemp requires AI aircrafts to be set up, see installation. Here's a list of collected feedback...mostly positive actually 🙂.

  20. Freeware Sound Pack Released for Captain Sim 757 III Over at the Captain Sim 757 Facebook group, a generous person named Alex Tavares has released his freeware 757 CS Sound Project for the Captain Sim 757 III. 757 CS Sound Project is a completely free, semi-complete overhaul/replacement for the Captain Sim 757 III’s default non-engine sounds inside and out. From the video linked above, you notice quite a major difference in quality compared to the add-on’s default sound set leaving you with a more overall immersive experience from start to finish. As mentioned above, this is a non-engine sound replacement. Amongst some of the default sounds replaced is the battery power sound, hydraulic sound, fuel pump sound, APU startup/shutdown sound and more which can be listened to at the timestamps listed in the video’s description. When installing ensure you follow and read through the included Instructions.txt as it is an installation process that may be tricky for some and requires you to change a couple of config files. If you need support or have a bug to report, you can email Alex here (atav2004@gmail.com). You can grab a hold of the 757 CS Sound Project for free over at this Google Drive link. It is compatible with the Captain Sim 757 III for both FSX and Prepar3D v3 & 4.

  23. FS2Crew - PMDG 747 QOTS II V1.3 Released with support for 747-8! Please Note: If you no longer wish to receive FS2Crew News, please click the 'Manage your Subscription" link found at the bottom of this newsletter. [4 January 2019] Priority NOTAM: Version 1.3 for FS2Crew: PMDG 747 QOTS II Edition Released! --Adds FREE support (although limited) for the new PMDG 737-8 models-- Please visit: www.fs2crew.com FS2Crew is happy to announce that Version 1.3 for the PMDG 747 QOTS II is now available. This is a significant update for the PMDG 747 QOTS II. It is a free update. The update is built into the main installer only. There is no stand-alone update installer. You do not need to uninstall the current version. To obtain the update, please login to your FS2Crew account (the link is on the top of the FS2Crew website), and click "COMPLETED ORDERS", then re-download and re-install the package again. You do not need to uninstall any earlier version. Change Log: Version 1.3 Fixes and Changes: The 8 model is now supported for free, but with some limitations: 747-8 USERS READ THIS PART CAREFULLY!!! 1. FS2Crew 747 QOTS II only supports the 8 model in P3D V4, not FSX. The reason is due to a panel window limit in FSX. Again, this is all the more reason to move to P3D V4. FSX is old and out-of-date. FSX is yesterday's news. It's time to move forward to P3D 64 bits. It's the future. Do NOT try manually copying the FS2Crew entries into the 8 model's panel.cfg in FSX or you'll mess up the plane! 2. Due to SDK, legal, and technical limits, the FS2Crew FO cannot interface with the Electronic Checklist System(ECL), so you'll be using the same paper checklists you used in the 400. 3. How to add FS2Crew to the 8 model in P3D V4: You must run the FS2Crew PMDG 747 QOTS II Config manager again and re-enable FS2Crew. This is necessary to add the FS2Crew entries to the 8 model's panel.cfg file. Anti-Ice callouts fixed. Other minor bug fixes.
