We're working with our friends at Thranda Design on an X-Plane 11 edition of our Archer III and are planning to have this ready in the next few weeks. As you can see from the 'work in progress' screenshots of the all-new PA-38 Tomahawk for P3D and FSX, the Just Flight development team have got rather more work to do on this one - we'll post some new screenshots showing further progress as soon as we can! In development: PA-28-181 Archer III (X-Plane 11) / PA-38 Tomahawk (P3D & FSX) PC PILOT PLATINUM AWARD FOR OUR X-PLANE 11 HAWK We were very pleased to see our new Hawk for X-Plane 11 getting a score of 95/100 and the Platinum Award in PC Pilot magazine's review, with the reviewer calliing it "a very nicely modelled jet trainer with well researched and implemented systems, flight model and superb graphics all around". The reviewer was impressed by the 3D modelling and texturing ("simply top notch in every regard") and concludes that the Hawk is a "near perfect military fast jet for X-Plane 11" which "just feels 'right' in all respects". The reviewer over at the Dutch SimFlight website also enjoyed the Hawk, which he describes as "one of the most beautiful and realistic addons I know". Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer (for X-Plane 11) / PC Pilot / SimFlight.nl review VFR REAL SCENERY NEXGEN 3D - VOLUME 1 COMING SOON!

Avro Vulcan B Mk. 2 / Duchess Model 76 / Demo's FLIGHTSIM.COM BEST OF 2018 AWARDS To get our 2019 off to an even better start, we've seen that several Just Flight aircraft appear in FlightSim.com's end of year honours list - click on the link below for the full list of winners! Best FSX/P3D Heavy Metal Jet - VC10 Jetliner "The combination of the modelling, sound and flight dynamics really brings together one of the nicest recreations of an aircraft in this simulator." Best FSX/P3D Turboprop - HS-748 Propliner "I've have had a lot of fun with the HS-748. As a classic British propeller aircraft, the Just Flight model does it proud, especially in regards to its exterior modelling and weathered cockpit." Best X-Plane Combat/Trainer - Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer "The Just Flight Hawk T1/A is an excellent payware entry to X-Plane 11's tiny sampling of military fighter aircraft. While it is my first payware quality fighter for the sim, I honestly can't imagine it gets much better." Best FSX/P3D GA Aircraft - Stinson L-5 Sentinel "It is both fun to fly, and challenging to get right, and will give hours of enjoyment... I thoroughly recommend it!" FlightSim.com Best of 2018 Awards / VC10 Jetliner (FSX/P3D) / HS 748 Propliner(FSX/P3D) / Stinson L-5 Sentinel (FSX/P3D) / Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer (X-Plane 11) NEW P3D/FSX FLOATPLANE FROM AEROPROYECTO Floatplane flyers wishing to expand their fleet should take a look at Aeroproyecto's new model for P3D and FSX.

Taking charge of the new stand-alone Tourist Bus Simulator means you'll need to offer a variety of trips, manage your fleet, maintain your vehicles, recruit and look after your staff and - if you're doing it right - grow your business. The whole of the island has been faithfully recreated and a large selection of vehicles and passengers are included. Don't forget to send us a postcard!

  2. View File Flight Replicas DC-4 (C-54 R5D) Cargo Livery Four Pack Because of The Sky Lounge patron requests, I accepted the challenge to create FedEx and UPS liveries for the C-54 R5D from Flight Replicas. There are retro liveries for those who want to fly more to the time period of the plane and there are liveries depicting the current textures of FedEx and UPS for those that prefer the latest styles. They are all fictional liveries. To my knowledge neither FedEx nor UPS flew this plane. Each of the liveries have been tested by me in P3D and have full functionality. To install, follow the directions in the "Installation Instructions" txt file. If you have any trouble downloading, please leave your comments here, post in a forum thread or PM me here on this site. There are no files that should negatively impact your sim or PC. If you have any issues after installation, uninstall the liveries and post your trouble here or leave me a PM. I hope you enjoy flying them as much as I enjoyed painting them. Canuckshaw Submitter Canuckshaw Submitted 12/29/2018 Category Misc Downloads  
  3. Three four new liveries for the Flight Replica's C-54 R5D are complete. In the new year I will be posting them on Simviation and AVSIM for the rest of the world to enjoy. But, all of my friends here on The Sky Lounge can download today. I have posted them on discord, in the hangar. To get your copy, go to Sky Lounge Social Club # the-hangar page. You may need to scroll up to find them. If you've never been to the Sky Lounge discord page (and who hasn't), then follow the instructions provided right here, by our very own OMGEDSON.

  4. Development Update: Just Flight & Just Trains - December 2018 So where did that year go? Seems only a matter of weeks since we released our first add-ons of the year back in January. We hope you've enjoyed the content that the Just Flight and Just Trains teams have brought you this year, there has been the usual varied mix of new add-ons from Just Flight, perhaps less so from Just Trains but that's something we're aiming to remedy in 2019. All the products released in 2018 can be found in the Latest Releases sections, here for Just Flight and here for Just Trains. Please read on for the very latest from the two development camps... It’s been a busy end to 2018 for the Just Flight development team. In the past few months we have released the PA-28-181 Archer III, Duchess Model 76 and the Avro Vulcan B Mk. 2 for FSX and P3D, and those products continue to receive regular updates in response to your feedback and to add even greater functionality. Following the release of P3D v4.4 a few weeks ago, we are currently working on a Physically Based Rendering (PBR) upgrade for the Vulcan, bringing the aircraft up to the very latest visual standards offered by the simulator, and we will have more news on that early next year. Looking ahead to 2019, the team are working on a variety of new products for FSX/P3D and X-Plane 11. There will be plenty of variety for FSX/P3D users with the Tornado F3, the next generation of our VFR Real Scenery and some classic airliners currently in development. Our popular Traffic Global product will also be coming out of early access. The PA-28-181 Archer III and Duchess Model 76 will be coming to X-Plane 11 in the new year, and we will be releasing significant updates for our existing aircraft range to bring them up to the latest XP11.30 standards. We'd like to thank you for your continued interest, support and custom and we sincerely hope you'll enjoy all that we have in store for you in 2019. Here's an update on some of the products we're currently working on. VFR REAL SCENERY NEXGEN 3D The first volume – Southern England & South Wales – is in final testing at the moment and the other three volumes are nearing completion. We are estimating release in early January. Feedback from our testers has been very positive. The latest version of P3D (Version 4.4) features improvements to the way photo textures are handled and VFRRS NexGen now looks even more impressive in 4.4. As a reminder, existing owners of any of our VFR Real Scenery downloads (or disc versions purchased from us) will be entitled to a significant discount on the NexGen series. VFR Real Scenery NexGen 3D TORNADO F3 Soon to be added to Just Flight’s already impressive hangar of military aircraft, Tornado F3 development continues at a pace – new HUD, Head-Down-Display, RHWR, weapons management, navigator TV displays, communication and night lighting systems are in place, and the high quality aircraft model is entering its final stages. Tornado F3 VC10 PROFESSIONAL Following on from the release of VC10 Jetliner, we have been busy upgrading the aircraft to our ‘Professional’ level with fully functional systems, including custom-coded electrical, fuel, hydraulic and pressurisation systems. The navigation capabilities will also receive an upgrade with a brand-new INS unit fitted to the navigator station. In addition to the systems upgrade, we are working on new Super VC10 and RAF (C1K, K3 and K4) variants which will feature a variety of animations including refuelling equipment and main-deck cargo doors, as well as cockpit modifications. We are in the latter stages of the systems coding and work is well underway on the new variants, so keep an eye on the In Development section for the first set of images! SUD AVIATION CARAVELLE III The Caravelle development team are hard at work modelling and texturing the remaining areas of the cockpit following a research trip to photograph a real-world Caravelle simulator in Germany. It is always challenging to collate the extensive reference material that is needed to accurately reproduce classic aircraft such as the Caravelle, and these research trips provide us with the opportunity to explore every corner and peek inside every hatch of the real aircraft. With the modelling work drawing to a close in the new year, our coders will soon begin the process of bringing the aircraft to life with custom-coded systems. We will be sharing regular updates on this progress via the In Development page, Facebook and Twitter over the coming weeks. Sud Aviation Caravelle III 747 CLASSIC After many months of work, the mammoth job of modelling, texturing and the animation of the 747 Classic is nearly complete. The exterior and cockpit models are now finished, with painstaking detail right down to accurately modelled cabins with staircases (see development screenshot above), and hundreds of custom animations have been added. We recently shared some new preview images of the extensive virtual cockpit which features wear and tear based on a real-world aircraft, and we were pleased to see all of the great feedback and excitement for this iconic aircraft! Our coding team have been busy working on the huge array of avionics and systems functionality found onboard the aircraft, from the realistic exterior model animations to the engineer’s panel, and we will be providing more updates on each of these areas in the coming months. After receiving lots of feedback from the community, we are now working on additional variants to follow the 747 Classic, including the 747-300, VC-25 and E-4B. More news on those next time! 747 Classic TRAFFIC GLOBAL (EARLY ACCESS) We’ll be back in 2019 with many more improvements and enhancements to Traffic Global, including improved model lighting, more liveries and new features as we move towards a full release version in the early part of next year. In the meantime, for those of you who are already Traffic Global users we’ve opened a thread in the Early Access forum where you can request the liveries you’d most like to see added to the fleet. Please take a moment to add those you would like to see and we will endeavour to supply as many as possible in the new year. Traffic Global Early Access Here we are in the last month of 2018. Things have been a bit “Swan-like” here at Just Trains and although we have published and released several products such as the fantastic Valley Corridor route, ultra-urban detailed U-Bahn Frankfurt II tram system, super-authentic London-Aylesburyroute both in stand-alone form as well as the add-on version for the Chiltern Main Line, the unique German narrow-gauge Saxon IV-K steam locomotive and the essential UK Military Wagon packcarrying IFA’s, on the surface we may not appear to have been overly busy, the reality is that work on many projects has been happening. We announced two of these quite recently - the Ultimate Class 37 and the Midland Main Line - Sheffield-Derby route and more will be announced in the coming months. Software development of any kind has its challenges and all manner of things can and normally do affect the development times of projects such as a sim update breaking our code, feature creep where we want to add more features to make the project even more authentic, customer feedback and so on. These can add delays and this is one of the reasons why we try to never issue a release date until we're confident we can achieve the said date. We fully understand and really do appreciate your excitement and enthusiasm for our up-coming products but we want to ensure that when they are ready for release they really are ‘ready for release’. Your patience is as always greatly appreciated. Please read on for the latest news on the batch of products currently in development. LONDON UNDERGROUND S8 ADVANCED The much anticipated London Underground S8 Tube train is progressing very well now after a recent setback following the release of Train Simulator 2019 64bit version. Unfortunately this broke the code that we use that passes messages between the front and rear of the train such as the external destination boards, this meant that for instance you could set Harrow on the Hill in the TCMS in the cab and it would display that on the front external display but there would be no destination displayed on the rear of the train, so we had to update that code plus the code that we had already developed that worked previously. Externally and internally the models are all but complete. As an indication of the attention to detail affored to the S8, the real information displays use a LED type matrix system so that any message can be displayed. This posed a problem as there is no real font for this and so we needed to create a model matrix and then “illuminate” each of the required dots to form each letter and that meant the displays on the model would match the real-thing. We have not yet released a full set of specifications for the S8 as the systems coding is still ongoing but it should not be too long until we are able to do that. We are really proud of all of the work that has gone into the development of the S8 and are certainly looking forward to the release to allow you to enjoy a really authentic LU S8 experience. S8 Advanced WESTERN MAINLINES - CORNISH MAIN LINE EXTENSION Development of the Cornish Main Line has been on-going for some time but the finish line is seemingly in sight! This line is an extension of our Western Mainlines route and as such has to be integrated into the existing network that currently runs from London Paddington all the way down to Plymouth, as long as you have the Devon Main Line add-on installed. It has yet to be determined if Cornish Main Line will only be available as an add-on to Western Mainlines or also available as a stand-alone route. As Cornish Main Line is an add-on to Western Mainlines an updated version of Western Mainlines will be released at the same time as the Cornish Main Line . We have spent some time updating Western Mainlines to help increase the frame rate speeds, especially with the number of trees used, and this looks to have made a significant difference to performance. Cornish Main Line and the Western Mainlines update is due for release in early 2019. Cornish Main Line Extension ULTIMATE CLASS 37 We recently announced the Ultimate Class 37 and it now resides in the In Development section on the Just Trains website. This was originally in development with RailRight and we are now pleased to be progressing development by working with Vulcan Productions. As per the name, this will be the Ultimate Class 37 and will have sublime modelling and textures, both externally and in the cab, along with a custom sound set, super dynamics and an advanced set of custom-coded features. This is most certainly the one to watch! Ultimate Class 37 MIDLAND MAIN LINE - SHEFFIELD TO DERBY Sheffield to Derby is a 36-mile section of the Midland Main Line through the heart of South Yorkshire and Derbyshire, serving the towns of Dore, Dronfield, Chesterfield, Belper and Duffield along the way. Development of the route, due to be released in 2019, is progressing very well with all the terrain, track and Super Elevation complete. Signalling is around 50% complete and the scenery work is about a third of the way complete. Building the many custom assets is about to get under way, and these include the Derby R.T.C and its associated sheds as well as Etches Park Depot and a number of the unique buildings around the stations at Sheffield. Needless to say, the stations and much else besides will be modelled specifically for this route. Midland Main Line - Sheffield to Derby LONDON - AYLESBURY UPDATE We have been working on a service pack/update for both the stand-alone and add-on for Chiltern Main Line versions of this route. Along with minor bugs fixes we have carried out work to increase the frame rates of the route along with enhancing the visual appearance. We removed extraneous objects such as houses that are not in view from the track and looked at visual enhancements too, for instance we have replaced the grass with a super new asset that really does look good. A main focus of the update is to prepare London-Aylesbury for the up-coming S8 release. Part of the London Underground Metropolitan Line runs besides and at some points on the very same rails as the London-Aylesbury route. The Met line section of the route is fully signalled and functional and we are now upgrading it to work with the S8. Part of this upgrade has involved very careful placement of the S8 stop chevrons and their invisible markers that are at each LU station. This means that when you correctly stop the S8, that must be in a very precise position, so driving skills ahoy! The S8 in-cab video screens will display (simulated) images of a platform. These are used in the real S8 to check that all is in order with the train before departure. One of the other route upgrades required for the S8 use is the development and placement of invisible markers that communicate with the S8 Radio display. The Met line has several radio centres along its route and the name of each radio centre is displayed on the radio and changes as the train moves along the route. We now have this simulated in the S8. The updated London-Aylesbury is due for release in early 2019. London - Aylesbury So that's it for this Development update. Hopefully you've found it useful and it's given you a good taster of what's to come in 2019. Remember you can visit the In Development sections of the Just Flight &Just Trains websites where new products are announced and screenshots and product details are added to the pages on a regular basis.

  5. VSKYLABS, X-plane 11.30 and the Experimental Flight Model mode... Hello VSKYLABS user! This is an imporant notification for the upcoming X-Plane 11.30 VSKYLABS, X-Plane 11.30 AND THE EXPERIMENTAL FLIGHT MODEL MODE: X-Plane 11.30 will introduce the Experimental Fight Dynamics mode, which will allow to fly planes with the evolving 'next generation' X-Plane's flight dynamics model. The Experimental Flight Model mode will be optional, and users will have to select using it by enabling it through the General Settings menu in X-Plane. The Experimental Flight Model is, as its name is indicating, an experimental flight dynamics environment which will allow Laminar Research to develop X-Plane's next-generation flight dynamics model in the real-time environment of X-Plane. It will be developed and evaluated throughout several versions of X-Plane 11, right until it will get into a 'stable' state. It is prone to changes, therefore is not considered as *stable*. Meanwhile, while having it as an option for users to test in X-Plane 11.30+, it is allowing aircraft developers to evaluate and test their models extensively, mapping the needed changes and have them ready for the time in which the experimental flight model will become *stable*. The experimental flight model mode is available also in the current X-Plane 11.30 beta version. VSKYLABS has started to test and evaluate its projects with the experimental flight model mode, as preparation for things to come. The experimental flight model mode is prone to changes and updates and it is not considered as *stable*. IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED NOT TO USE THE EXPERIMENTAL FLIGHT MODEL MODE ON A REGULAR BASIS, BUT ONLY FOR EVALUATION PURPOSE. In the meantime, bug-reports for this environment will not be addressed on the practical level. However, VSKYLABS aircraft users can report issues found in the experimental mode, using the VSKYLABS Bug/Issues report system (to be found in the VSKYLABS main webpage at https://www.vskylabs.com ). Having the VSKYLABS Projects to be designed and developed as native (default) X-Plane 11 add-ons, will assure a relatively simple adaptation process to the new flight dynamics model, when time is right. Actual transition of the flight dynamics models of the VSKYLABS projects to X-Plane's next-generation flight model environment will occur down the road, when Laminar Research will define the Experimental Flight Model as *stable*.

  6. Following on from their award-winning PA-28R Arrow III, Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer and C152, this highly detailed simulation of the Duchess Model 76 is being developed by Just Flight's in-house team following comprehensive, hands-on research with two real-life Duchess aircraft, G-BZRT and G-GCCL. The Duchess is a four-seater, twin-engine T-tail aircraft equipped with a retractable tricycle landing gear, and two 180hp four-cylinder engines fitted with constant-speed propellers. Its IFR-capable avionics suite, excellent handling characteristics and counter-rotating propellers make it an ideal aircraft for multi-engine flight training, and the perfect step up from single-engine aircraft such as the PA28. A cruise speed of 155 knots, a range of 780 nautical miles and a service ceiling of 20,000ft also make it a very capable touring aircraft. The Duchess is flown all around the world and our add-on reflects that global popularity. In addition to our UK research aircraft, G-BZRT and G-GCCL, the product will feature liveries from the USA, Canada, France, Australia and Germany .

  19. The world's longest commercial flight has left Singapore for New York, beginning a journey scheduled to cover more than 15,000km in almost 19 hours. Singapore Airlines is relaunching the service five years after it was cut because it had become too expensive. Flight SQ22 departed at 15:37GMT with 150 passengers and 17 crew. The inaugural flight from Changi Airport to Newark's international airport, which services New York, took off amid much fanfare. However, Singapore Airlines told passengers before take off that their flight to Newark, while still the world's longest flight by distance, could only take some 17 hours. Qantas launched a 17-hour non-stop service from Perth to London earlier this year, while Qatar runs a 17.5-hour service between Auckland and Doha. See the link below for more from the article. — I gather here is no economy (coach) in this flight. Only business class and premium economy.

  23. 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.
