  2. hi all Fly the Maddog MD-80 is getting its first service pack. Among other things improvements of the cockpit textures. The service pack is available as “open beta”, so there might still be some minor bugs SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : https://www.flythemaddogx.com/ NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK : https://www.flightsim.news/2018/09/leonardo-flythemaddogx/
  3. It’s been a little while since we saw the release of the Fly the MadDogX MD-80, but the development team has been hard at work crafting the next service pack, which has been done to improve the visual rendering, the usability of the aircraft and additional features to further immerse the simmer. In the forum post shared recently, the new features have been outlined, in addition to what the future holds. As I first mentioned, the first thing that has been improved is the overall appearance of the aircraft. The team has spent a deal of time looking over each texture in fine detail and has fixed any errors, improved the fonts and remapped textures wherever it was needed. A lot of feedback was given regarding the light textures and the team have spent time making further refinements. Different panels now have varying tones, annunciation lights can now be dimmed and spotlight positions have been fixed. Livery painters will also rejoice in the fact that you can now personalise the yoke, registration placards and notes. Further to texture work, the 3D modelling has also received some attention – both inside and out. One of the biggest changes visually is the upgrade to the Gables G7490 ADS. Animations have also been fixed, and there are now several customization now available via the load manager. Outside, work has been done on the wing-flex model and new chocks, air conditioning units and air starter carts have been added. Leonardo Software has also included a bunch of effects such as St. Elmo’s fire, tailpipe fire during an abnormal engine start, brake smoke effects and other smoke effects on external power vehicles. A lot of feedback given to the team was regarding the load manager. As a result, the team have spent time working on them. Users can now enjoy save states for individual airframe. One of the biggest changes comes from a new feature which is all about the life and progress of each airframe and the maintenance aspects. Going forward, your aircraft will start to age. The systems will remember what fluid was consumed, how the aircraft was operated, how many hours it’s flown, etc. Over time, you’ll notice that things will start to become less reliable or worse, INOP. There’s also been some general bug fixes for aircraft systems and performance. As for the future, the team will be releasing service packs for both the P3Dv4.1 and above version of the FlythemaddogX, along with a specific one for 32-bit versions. After that, the focus will be on the 64-bit versions only. As the team believe the future of simulation is in a 64-bit world, they will continue to offer the upgrade price for users wishing to move platforms. After that, work will begin on shared cockpit capabilities. No word on a release date, but you can pick up a copy now from SimMarket. 32-bit version will cost you 57 Euros, and the 64-bit version is 70 euros.

One of several manufacturers raising this topic again in the last few weeks: Luxury carmaker Aston Martin has unveiled plans for a personal aircraft dubbed a "sports car for the skies". The company has teamed up with jet engine maker Rolls-Royce and engineering boffins at Cranfield University on the futuristic project. A concept aircraft was unveiled at the Farnborough Airshow, but the consortium hopes to have a flying version ready for the next show in two years. The three-seat hybrid-electric vehicle will be vertical take-off and landing. — see site below for more details ...

  8. Bell’s 525 Relentless Fly-by-wire Helicopter Program Moves Toward Certification – AINtv Since the 525 Relentless returned to the air in July 2017 after the fatal crash of flight test vehicle 1 a year before, Bell has flown both of its remaining super-medium twins, FTV2 and 3, nearly an additional 200 flight-test hours. The two aircraft have accumulated approximately 290 hours in total between them. FTV4 is scheduled to make its maiden flight in the fourth quarter. At the Heli-Expo show in Las Vegas, Bell showed its 525 mockup with a full VIP interior, complete with Bristow Helicopters livery, even though the oil-and-gas and search-and-rescue operator hasn’t been officially revealed as a customer, as have any other customers. The company hasn’t set a formal price for the 525, but it expects to complete certification flight testing by the end of 2018.

  11. FLY X Simulations announce Lanzarote for X-Plane Source: X-Plane.org Forum, FLY X FLY X Simulations have announced their first payware airport, Lanzarote (GCRR), is now in development for X-Plane. Since November of 2016, FLY X has uploaded 2 freeware airports (Rovaniemi and Fuerteventura) and one livery (Thomson G-OOBA for the FlightFactor 757) to the X-Plane forums. The two airports are of a reasonably high quality and were uploaded around 12 months apart, with a distinct improvement in quality on the second scenery (EFRO) over the earlier GCFV. This leads us to believe that we should see some high-quality custom modelling in the newly announced product.

  12. For the first time, Cook ran up a $93,109 bill for traveling on private aircraft on non-business-related trips. The Apple board stipulated this year that for security reasons the CEO should use private planes for business and personal travel, citing the risk given his high profile. Personal security costs were calculated at $224,216. LINK TO SOURCE: http://www.businessinsider.com/apple-is-requiring-tim-cook-to-fly-private-from-now-on-2017-12

  16. The High Sierra Fly In 2017, home of the STOL Drag Racing World Championships, was one for the record books. Great times to be had by all, with the exception of a few minor incidents. Thanks to Kevin Quinn for putting on such an awesome event. Look forward to seeing everyone out there next year, October 18-21st 2018!SOURCE:
  17. I've had a bunch of comments asking technical questions about my Kitfox, as well as a few requests to do a walk around of the plane so I went ahead and did so. Fair warning: This video is more of a technical rundown than an entertaining flying video. Couple things I forgot to mention... I didn't build my plane, I purchased it used, so I can't really speak to the build process, although I do hope to build one myself in the future! The plane weighs 850lbs empty and has a 1550lb gross weight (not registered SLSA). I apologize for the blurry shots in parts of this video, it seems my camera was being a little temperamental today.SOURCE:
