New Daily X-Plane News Site Online: Meet

I am humbled and proud. After I announced that I could no longer run a daily X-Plane news site my reader Gaspard felt inspired and launched a new daily news site to bring all those exciting news in our lives. Thank you Gaspard, you are my hero! That said, I know for fact that another one of my readers is working on his very own daily news site, which makes me even more proud. A few months ago we didn’t even have a single news site for X-Plane and now we soon have two sites. Awesome. Have a look at now! Have fun!


FDX Exclusives: RD’s Riverside & Half Moon Bay

As you know, I am a big fan of RD Studios’ Peter Suranyi. His debut release KHAF Half Moon Bay (see my review) surpassed all of our expectations and there is no doubt his next airport KRAL Riverside (which will ship with an L.A. landmarks pack) will be even better. One of the reasons for this is, Peter will add people to his scenery. That’s a big “yay” if you ask me as it makes the scenery even more alive. Peter was kind enough to send me some exclusives to showcase those new 3 dimensional guys and gals! Another exclusive screenshot shows the upcoming Riverside scenery. Looking great thus far!


Ollie’s Path to Flight Sim Divinity

There are certain folks around that believe the mastering of rotorcraft is the highest level of skill one can achieve on its path to flight simulation glory. What sounds mysterious certainly has some truth in it. I just started with helicopters (bought my first payware today, the Dreamfoil Bell 407) and I am impressed. I can fly Airbuses, Boeings, Pipers. Any fixed-wing aircraft is basically my b****. But this Bell 407 is impossible to fly and especially land for me. Anyway, with the support of I will write about my endeavors in the upcoming months and let all of you aircraft junkies know if helicopters might also be something for you. I am obsessed already, that’s for sure. That FlightFactor A320 is suddenly not that exciting anymore to me… Stay tuned!

By the way, the scenery you can see above is Attitude’s KTTF Custer, a true masterpiece if you ask me (review available in the review tab)!


Just Flight Announce Turbo Arrow III/IV

A few hours ago, Just Flight published the above screenshots with no information at all! My superior brainz tells me this is an X-Plane version of their Piper PA-28R Turbo Arrow III/IV, though. If you have any doubts, compare these shots with the P3D version of this product here.

I guess Just Flight’s debut release was a commercial success then. Keep ’em coming I’d say. However, I do hope Thranda (who are responsible for the actual conversion) do a better job with the flight model this time. The flight model of the Arrow III was far from being perfect (see my review if you want to learn more about it).


Another St. Barths In The Making!

A good year for fans of Caribbean island destinations. First, Nimbus Simulations released their scenery of TFFJ Aéroport Rémy de Haenen / St. Barths. Now, developer PilotAlva of Airworthy Designs previewed early renderings of his version of the same airport, which is said to be shipped together with a scenery of Sint Maarten.

First I thought, do we really need another St. Barths? But yeah, look at those screenshots. Sure looks better than Nimbus’ version. And this will also feature an orthophoto! I just love having options, always great having competition!
