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!


Developers: Orbx is hiring!

I know some of you aren’t the biggest Orbx fans. Honestly though, I don’t care. I love Orbx and their products and I am looking forward to all those beautiful airfields as announced earlier here. Currently Orbx is hiring and looking for some experienced X-Plane developers to help them convert their scenery to our platform. See what they are looking for (see the original post by Orbx’s Ed Correia here):

“Are you looking for an opportunity to join Orbx as a developer? We are wanting to expand our team of  talented developers as well as find specialists to port many of our published airports for XPlane 11. There will also be opportunities to team up with established developers on current projects. This will be paid contract work.

Developer/assistant developers 

  • proven work published either payware or freeware
  • advanced 3D modelling skills and experience with FSX/P3D SDK tools

XP specific

  • proven experience with the use of porting tools from FSX/P3D to XP

Please send covering details, relevant skills and experience to jobs@orbxsystems.com Links to published works/reviews will be advantageous.”

Whether you like it or not, things are about to get real with Orbx! If you are a developer looking for a new assignment, this might be your chance! Good luck!


The Official FlightDeckX Livery by MB Liveries

One of the most talented livery artists in our community is Matteo Baiocchi of MB Liveries. After some serious “begging” from myself he kindly agreed to create a FlightDeckX livery for X-Plane 11’s stock 737-800. As a little gift from myself you can now download this beautiful piece of art for your own personal use. Download the livery here and make sure to follow the instructions in the included Readme file. Enjoy! And thanks to Matteo, great work buddy!


[EDIT] FlightFactor announces major 757 update! NOW RELEASED!

You heard right, folks! A few hours ago, Ramzzess of FlightFactor announced that their popular Boeing 757 v2 will receive another major update, and apparently that’s gonna happen soon! This update will feature “more than an addition of the -300 and -cargo, its a major update with new dynamics, engines, xp11 effects, new cockpit fonts”. I will keep you updated as more information unfolds!

Thanks to Maurits and Dellanie for the tip-off! Thanks so much guys!

EDIT: A product page for a Boeing 757 v2 Professional Extended Upgrade has been added to the .org store so this is apparently a paid upgrade. According to the page the upgrade price is either $20.00 or $25.00 (both are mentioned). Guess they are still undecided.

EDIT: Aaaand apparently it’s now released. Thanks for everyone leaving a comment with new information!
