  1. Aircraft Review : CowanSim Bell 222B + UT You know when something special is going on when the X-Plane forums were buzzing. It was "CowanSim this" and "CowanSim that", and everyone was wanting something relating to the aircraft, more unusual was that is was a Helicopter, and in most instances helicopters don't usually create this sort of buzz, mostly because chopper pilots are a minority bunch and stay mostly within their own flight pal circles... so something must have been interesting to create a so much activity. This comes with the release from CowanSim a Bell 222
  2. This comment has been moved to the updated review Medellinexpat There’s already a v1.1 out which is meant to fix several issues. Given the review it might not be the last update. One has to question the testing on the original release. What some developers miss is that few releases are lucky enough to get a second review. The review of the initial release is likely to be read by many potential purchasers not just now but in the future.
  3. News! - Updated : Airbus A320 Ultimate v1.1.9 by FlightFactor FlightFactor.Aero have released the update v1.1.9 to their A320-214. (This post replaces the v1.1.17 beta release). The v1.1.19 release is the formal release and takes the aircraft out of the beta version, but between the beta and the formal release there have been no extra changes or revisions. There was an announcement a few weeks ago that FlightFactor were doing some optimisation on the aircraft's Flight Management System to recover the severe lost framerate when Vulkan was introduced t
  4. News! - Upgraded Scenery Release : Tenerife South Airport v2 by Digital Design Your filter was in full use... I looked at JustSim's GCTS-Tenerife 2018 scenery and thought it was not worth the review, rare really because I really like JustSim's scenery and they rarely do a dud, but I didn't like it, so I didn't recommend the scenery. Since that initial release, the scenery has had two upgrades (v1.1 and v1.1a) that has smoothed out a lot of the original imperfections. Part of JustSim's original team have been rebranded as Digital Design, and slowly the deve
  5. News! - Scenery Announcement : KMEM Memphis by Axonos Axonos have announced their next X-Plane release in KMEM Memphis, Tenn. Memphis International MEM is in reality three distinct airports in one, the Commercial, Military (164th Airlift Wing) and Memphis is also the main base and mainstay hub for FedEx Express domestic and international services, the FedEx facility totally dominates the northern boundary of the airport. This Axonos scenery is actually the second announcement of Memphis as Nimbus Simulation had also announced the scenery last year after th
  6. News! - Scenery Release : Airport Split XP by Aerosoft Although branded Aerosoft, this is a new scenery from Stairport Sceneries and PadLabs, in another convert of a ESP Product for X-Plane, this release is LDSP Split Airport, in Croatia. Split Airport is also known as Resnik Airport, it is the international airport serving the city of Split, Croatia. It is located 19 km (12 mi) from Split, on the west side of Kaštela Bay, in the town of Kaštela, and extending into the adjacent town of Trogir. In 2019, the airport was the second busiest airport in Croa
  7. This comment has been moved to the updated review olderndirt A very considerate review. This one is marginal payware and, having owned one, consider it incomplete. In today's market you have to be above average. Attached is a shot of my 1946 C140 - rag wing (the later ones had metal). Note the axle extension mod to alleviate the tipover tendency. Almost forgot - a glaring error on the fuselage. There is no line between wings across the fuselage. Wings are bolted to the fuselage with a gap for fuel lines, wiring and cables. Each gap is covered with a screw on fairing.
  8. Aircraft Update Review : Cessna 140 v1.1 by NKDesign The Cessna 120, 140, and 140A series, are single-engine, two-seat, conventional landing gear (tailwheel), light general aviation aircraft that were first produced post-war WW2 in 1946. Production ended in 1951, and was succeeded in 1959 by the Cessna 150, a similar two-seat trainer which introduced tricycle gear. Combined production of the 120, 140, and 140A was 7,664 units in five years. The Cessna 140 was originally equipped with a Continental C-85-12 or C-85-12F horizontally opposed, air-cooled, four-cylinder pisto
  9. Seriously, you should know this one... Thranda Design (Dan Klaue) does all the Just Flight X-Plane conversions. Obviously the avionics in X-Plane will be different. If you do get the eight different variants, and the cargo does have a full cargo feature, with JF quality, it has to be pretty good value for your money, size is not the consideration here, the feature list and the quality is.

  11. Scenery Review : Machu Picchu National Park UHD by Dainese and Bellini Up in the darkest deepest Paddington Bear country there is an astounding 15th-century Inca citadel, located in the Eastern Cordillera of southern Peru. This is Machu Picchu and it was declared a Peruvian Historic Sanctuary in 1981 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. Machu Picchu is located on a 2,430-metre (7,970 ft) mountain ridge in the Machupicchu District within the Urubamba Province above the Sacred Valley, which is 80 kilometres (50 mi) northwest of Cuzco. The Urubamba River flows past it
  12. Translation: I cannot find the T / C and T / D indications. In addition, the aircraft (FMC) assumes neither speed nor altitude when descending. FlightFactor are doing a (beta) test update now on that problem... an updated release should come soon.
  13. News! - Updated : Tromso XP v1.3 by Aerosoft Aerosoft have updated to Version 1.3, the largest airport in Northern Norway in Tromsø Airport Langnes. Created by Jo Erlend Sund and Stairport Sceneries the scenery depicts an extremely detailed recreation of Tromsø Airport on the island Tromsøya as well as its surroundings. The changelog is extremely short, with only three changes, but still extremely important to keep the airport current and to fix a couple of X-Plane11.50 related issues. Version 1.3 (February 11th 2021) Updated GroundTraff
  14. News! - Scenery release : Machu Picchu National Park UHD by Dainese and Bellini Frank Dainese and Fabio Bellini have now released another epic scenery and this one is totally different again... Machu Picchu National Park in Peru. Machu Picchu is a 15th-century Inca citadel, located in the Eastern Cordillera of southern Peru, on a 2,430-metre (7,970 ft) mountain ridge. It is located in the Machupicchu District within Urubamba Province above the Sacred Valley, which is 80 kilometres (50 mi) northwest of Cuzco. The Urubamba River flows past it, cutting t
  15. News! - Aircraft Release : Cessna 140 by NKDesign Out of blue comes a nice little tiddler aircraft from NKDesign... the Cessna 140. The Cessna 120, 140, and 140A, are single-engine, two-seat, conventional landing gear (tailwheel), light general aviation aircraft that was first produced in 1946, immediately following the end of World War II. Production ended in 1951, and was succeeded in 1959 by the Cessna 150, a similar two-seat trainer which introduced tricycle gear. Combined production of the 120, 140, and 140A was built 7,664 units over five years. The
