[Flightsimguy] Flight Simulation’s Most Popular Approaches: Kai Tak Heart Attack Feat CS 767 (FYC)

This time around, I’m doing a series on the most popular Flight Sim approaches. First up, is the now defunct Hong Kong International Airport most commonly known as Kai Tak.

The approach is called the Kai Tak Heart Attack for good reason. It takes some practice to master, and requires a beefy rig to prevent it from looking like a slide show, but for my first time, I can’t complain.

Make sure you follow me on Facebook.

My setup is as follows:

Aerosoft Official Digital Aviation CRJ Video

Since it’s release, Aerosoft and Digital Aviation have been listening to feedback from the community regarding the CRJ 700/900X. Despite being perhaps one of the longest development cycles in the history of flight sim, the aircraft was met with a lot of vocal people who wanted to see improvements to the aircraft. The developers have listened and have released the latest version of the product. Version featured a massive change log that will hopefully resolve many user’s complaints.

Some of the issues that have been fixed include LNAV problems, ground friction modelling, missing pack sounds and PFD bearing pointer mix-ups. A few additional features such as gear bump sounds, debugging options and flight attendant crew sounds have been added to the update. The full list of changes is down below.

To get the update, you’ll need to redownload the 1.1GB update from the store you purchased the aircraft from. I downloaded mine from Aerosoft, but we assume that SimMarket also has the installers ready. If you purchased the CD version, you can get your update here.

Let us know in the comments if fixed your Aerosoft / Digital Design CRJ 700/900X woes.
