TropicalSim TNCA Aruba for X-Plane 11 RELEASED!

There are some rather old sceneries by TropicalSim available at simMarket, which, frankly, look like …. ah I better not say it. They are just too old for 2017 standards and there is even better freeware available. However, TropicalSim seem to be back in the game. They just released TNCA Aruba for X-Plane 11 and it does look good! A welcome addition to fans of the Caribbean, indeed! Get TropicalSim’s TNCA Aruba for X-Plane 11 exclusively at simMarket here.


UK2000 Aberdeen RELEASED!

A feast for every proud Scotsman! UK2000 today released Aberdeen Xtreme for X-Plane 11. See the release announcement:

“We are proud to announce Aberdeen is now released for X-Plane. As usual, this includes all assets found in the FSX/P3D version such as, custom taxiways, grass, signs, buildings and AutoGate safedock. X-Plane spill lights are also included.”

Aberdeen Xtreme for X-Plane 11 is available for just £16.99 directly from UK2000 here.



As announced here, the Super Cub by AeroSim is aimed for release “early next week”. See the official feature list:

  • Current version supporting Xplane 11 version 11.05
  • SimCoders REP Package comes with the aircraft!  Just install and you are ready to fly
  • 3 Individual Flight Models!  150HP Titan™ X320 powered Super Cub, with a separate flight model for Tundra Tires and standard tires. 180HP Titan™ X340 Powered Super Cub + constant speed prop with Tundra wheels only.
  • Engine performance data provided by Titan™ Engines by Continental
  • Full 3D Landing gear animations
  • Flight Dynamics and ground handling designed to allow pilots to land off airfield!
  • Compare the flight differences between a constant speed propeller and a fixed pitch!
  • 4K Textures, full PBR and individual reflections inside the cockpit
  • 2 Included selectable cockpits for the 150HP Model.  These include a IFR rated panel and a standard bare bones VFR panel
  • High Definition CSL’s for online flying
  • More updates and additions to come in the future as Xplane expands

Now here’s the thing, AeroSim’s Super Cub is priced at $42.95 (see here)! That’s a rather high price tag for a debut aircraft, even if it ships with SimCoder’s REP package. We will see if it lives up to its claims. In any case, I am out of here. I won’t be flying this particular bird for this price. To all you Super Cub fans, though, enjoy this beauty!


Opinion on Laminar’s G1000 (11.10b2)

As you know, Laminar Research introduced a whole new Garmin G1000 unit with their 11.10 update, which is currently in beta 2 stage. I was eager to see how real this unit was and opted for the beta. Currently I am flying over Washington state (get orthos here), near Mt. Rainier, and I am on my way to KPUW Pullman-Moscow. Let me tell you, this G1000 is pretty darn impressive. Not only is it responsive and fast, it also looks and feels real. Haven’t had the time to test all features of this unit yet but so far, I did not encounter any obviously wrong things about this. I downloaded an official manual for the real unit (google it, easy to find) and it perfectly matched what I am seeing on the screen. Pretty impressive!

Again, you should not opt for the beta unless you intend to report bugs back to Laminar. This is only to let you know that I firmly believe that 11.10 is a big step in the right direction and you will love each and every feature this major update brings to our platform (such as separate joystick & keyboard profiles for each aircraft). Good times to live in!


World Traffic 3 Review by Q8Pilot

I know for sure that a lot of you guys were waiting for Q8Pilot to review World Traffic 3. This morning he uploaded his latest video, which is a full review and a installation and configuration guide for this popular AI traffic tool. I am still not exactly a fan of this software as it is clumsy and does not have a user friendly interface. But that’s just my opinion. Make up your own mind and watch Q8Pilot’s latest video here.
