Own the QualityWings Simulations Ultimate 787? Here’s How you Create Airport Maps

Josh Mendoza took some time away from his companies aircraft to try out the QualityWings Simulations Ultimate 787 and has clearly found a soft spot for the modern Boeing aircraft. Not only has he really enjoyed his time in the aircraft, but he has taken the time to create a simple and detailed video tutorial on creating airport maps which can be displayed on your ND.

It is one of my favourite features of the aircraft (first impressions coming soon), so to see a quick way for the community to now make their own is certainly amazing to see. I hope that QualityWings will take some of the hardwork and implement it into their download system soon for everyone to take advantage of.

Let us know in the comments below what you think.

Just Flight Avro Vulcan B Mk2 Renders

Avro Vulcan B Mk2 6 Ss L 171020102932

Today Just Flight announced that their Avro Vulcan B Mk2 finally has reached the Development section. Their in-house team are working hard to make it the best aircraft of its kind out there for both FSX and P3D.

Vulcan B Mk2 is a very iconic aircraft, four-engines with its delta wings that can drop bombs. Was in service in the UK during Cold War. The model they base their virtual aircraft on was the last aircraft built for the Royal Air Force in 1964. Part of UK’s nuclear deterrent force throughout 60s and 70s.

To develop this aircraft they went to see a real Vulcan B.2 XM665 at Wellesbourne Airfield. Collected a total of several hundreds of photos, a few of them are here below. While they took the photos they took the opportunity to record unique sounds, film control surfaces, airbrakes, bomb-bay, doors RAT and cockpit door to make it as real as possible.

To closely follow the development of this aircraft feel free to sign up on Just Flight’s website for news as well as their Facebook.

Below are some new renders of this aircraft

Aerosoft Heathrow Professional Service Pack Released

ASD 1959b

P3D V4 users can rejoice because Aerosoft has released a service pack for Heathrow Professional, update 1.01.

By looking at the change log we can immediately see that mainly AFCAD and lighting is updated. As well as some minor changes on Taxi signs. The EGLLConfig gives you the option to select AFCADs based on what you prefer.

It covers the following in the change log:

  • Using “HDR” in P3DV4 caused the apron lights and light effects at the light poles to appear too bright.
  • This was caused by a wrong bloom
  • Afcad now selectable for Takeoff/Landing fixed
  • EGLLConfig changed to select Afcads
  • Glideslope Elevation changed to fit to PAPI
  • Light Effects corrected for better HDR compatibility
  • LOMAN Taxi sign fixed

The update is available for download from Simwings and is a 2.6 MB download for you.
