  1. It is not a review but a "News!" release? I haven't actually looked at the scenery yet to do a review.

  4. News! - Scenery Release : PHJH- Kapalua Airport, Hawaii by NorthernSkyStudio NorthernSkyStudios has added in another Hawaiian scenery to match in with their already released Molokai and Kalaupapa airports with PHJH- Kapalua Airport. Kapalua Airport (PHJH ), also known as Kapalua–West Maui Airport, is a regional private use airport on the west side of the island of Maui in Hawaii. It is located five nautical miles (6 mi, 9 km) north of Lahaina, in Maui County. Most flights to Kapalua Airport originate from commuter airports on the other Hawaiian islands by c
  5. Scenery Review : EGSS Stansted by Boundless Simulations There are six airports that service the London area in the United Kingdom. Heathrow (LHR), Gatwick (LGW), City (LCY), Luton (LTN), Southend (SEN) and finally Stansted (STN). Breaking them down, then Heathrow is the biggest and the capitol's main major hub, Gatwick services the south and is another major gateway. The rest though are really satellite or even regional hubs... except LCY, but then London City is really only a commuter airport with serious runway restrictions on the type of aircraft that can get in there and then
  6. News! - Aircraft Update : King Air 350 v1.5 by AirFoilLabs The Airfoillabs team, an X-Plane 11 addon developer from Brno, Czech Republic has released the v1.5 update of their King Air 350. The team from Airfoillabs has spent quite a bit of time in this update release focusing on the physical model, avionics, performance and general handling of their airplane. The 5th in line, this update introduces a new Quick Look feature, which allows the Pilot to use predefined views to navigate around the flightdeck. This feature should significantly reduce the workload for the pil

  8. Aircraft Update : Embraer ERJ Family v1.4.0 by X-Crafts X-Crafts have done an interesting update to their ERJ Family of aircraft... E135, E140, E145, E145XR and the ERJ private jet version of the Legacy 650 to version v1.4.0 The v1.4.0 update is mainly focused on the FMS. As Steve Wilson has been working on a complete rewrite of the FMS navdata coding, and in this aspect it is focused on here, is the (hidden transition) from the old X-Plane navigation database (GNS430) to the newer X-Plane11 system navigation database, as this will be the cornerstone of the new Authen
  9. News! - Scenery Release : EGSS Stansted Airport by Boundless The EGSS Stansted Airport scenery by Boundless has now been released on the X-Plane.OrgStore. Stansted is notably London's UK third airport, but that depends on if you include Luton. Growth over the last few decades at Stansted has been huge for two reasons. First the restrictions on Heathrow and Gatwick, but also in the fact that Stansted is a also very much more LCC (Low Cost Carrier) focused destination with the airport being the largest Ryanair base for the airline. Noted is "Stansted for X-Pl
  10. No updates have been forthcoming since 2014 (Peter was out of the development process for a fair while) so the status is still actually the same? 2014 is now a long time ago, but I do remember these A320s were pretty good for the time, the systems and flight protocols were done by ToLiSS (before they were ToLiSS), so the performance was also pretty good... Still a good A320 for half the price of the FlightFactor A320 Ultimate. If I find the time I might reload one in and see how it performs today.

  12. News! - Aircraft Update : CowenSim MD500E v1.10 CowenSim has done a through update to their MD500E (Hughes 500) v1.10. My view in the CowenSim MD500E review was that the aircraft felt slightly undeveloped, so this comprehensive v1.10 update it should now cover the final aspects of the delivery of a fantastic machine. Added tons of liveries There were quite a few liveries added to the package 50 New paint kit The paint kit was upgraded and a paint kit for the cargo pod was added to the package. Thank you Pasiel J for your help. The new kit is am
  13. Plugin Updated : WebFMC Pro v1.7.0 by Green Arc Studios The latest update to the excellent WebFMC Pro v1.7.0 plugin is again another significant update with great new features and a few more added aircraft. The WebFMC is a plugin that allows you to use a FMC (Flight Management Computer) on an external screen via a web browser. That is an another computer or tablet. It is a remote tool, but a very beneficial tool and even a powerful one in programming in route and performance data and following the set aircraft route in flight and in mirroring the aircraft's built in FMS
