UK2000 Scenery Releases Isle of Man for P3D

202304607 1572757602929738 3561255259004072743 N

UK2000 Scenery has released Isle of Man for Prepar3D.

Isle of Man Airport (EGNS) has regular services to the UK and Ireland from easyJet, Aer Lingus, and Loganair. With a relatively short runway, the number of routes is limited, but there are some interesting options to explore; especially when the weather is bad. Quite often, easyJet will fly to the Isle of Man from Liverpool in a very short flight. There are also a number of business jet and GA flying opportunities from the airport also.

No feature list was given, but from what we can see, there are plenty of static cars, aircraft and other goodies around the airport itself to make it feel alive. There are also plenty of buildings and other objects in the airport area which depict various hangars, terminal buildings and clutter in and around the airport. We also know that it’s compatible with Orbx products and also Earth Simulations Isle Of Man and True Earth, should you own either of those.

You can download UK2000 Scenery’s Isle of Man for Prepar3D now from their website for £18.48.

187240963 4209448989094853 125347311517802458 N

Over on the PMDG forums, Robert Randazzo made an announcement regarding the companies anticipated Douglas DC-6 Cloudmaster. Randazzo announced that the plane has completed development and will release for Microsoft Flight Simulator on Friday, June 18th. Randazzo and PMDG are very excited about their first release for the new platform. A platform that, according to Randazzo’s announcement, does a magnificent job of capturing the beauty of the DC-6. With the release, the plane will become the most detailed one in the PMDG line-up.

Upon release, the plane will include features such as the Automated Flight Engineer, making the plane accessible for those less experienced with the DC-6. This feature, just like in previous versions, is optional, and you can also opt to fly the plane and handle the more complex tasks yourself.

The pricing, as well as the exact time this Friday when the plane will release, are still pending. These will be announced shortly before the release.

Anticipating the release, Twitch streamers The Flying Fabio as well as Chewy will be previewing and live streaming the plane.

Edit (CM): Added release date video.
