Celebrate In Style with FSElite This November – Our Launch Party!

Fse Launch Party

For the past (nearly) 6 years, FSElite has existed in one form or another. From our humble podcast beginnings to the current state of our new site. Having delivered thousands upon thousands of news articles, reviews, originals and developer interviews during that time. At times it has been tough, but the driving force behind why we continue to deliver is you: our community.

Whether you’re a streamer, podcaster, content creator, publisher, developer, fellow media outlet, freeware creator, hardcore study-level jetliner simmer, or first-time simmer, every single person who has contributed to the flight sim space has had a huge impact on where we are today.

For the past year (maybe longer if I include the R&D), there have been thousands of hours dedicated by us to create our new platform. A platform that, we hope, will be the new benchmark for what flight simulation media should look like. We have always strived to be innovative, challenge convention and inspire – I feel our new generation of content will do all of that. That’s fairly bold words, I’ll admit, but I would like to think the thousands of hours will have paid off in weeks to come when you’re experiencing our vision for the future.

The last time we refreshed our site, we did it by surprise. This time, we want to celebrate; with those that have helped shape who we are today, provided us with invaluable feedback and made us work even harder to provide the content you see from us on a daily basis. That’s why, on Saturday, November 20th, we will be hosting our Launch Party: one online and one in-person!

In-Person – Wanna come?!

On Saturday, November 20th an exclusive party will be happening in the heart of Bath, UK where members of the FSElite team will be joined by developers, content creators and members of the community for a night of socialising and sneak peeks at future content! Even better is that we’re opening up the opportunity to a limited number of people who wish to come along.

Our in-person event (limited to 30 or so people) will be the perfect way to connect with simmers and like-minded people over free drinks and food. You’ll have the chance to get some exclusive looks at some great new products, win some cool prizes and also get a free gift bag full of neat keepsakes.

We’re giving away some tickets to the event. If you’re interested and (this is important) can make it, you can enter our raffle now! Do note the following info:

LatinVFR Releases AREX Tropics South America for MSFS

Airport Regional Environment X Tropics South America1

LatinVFR continues to expand its AREX range for Microsoft Flight Simulator. This time, the team head to South America to make the ground services more akin to their real-life counterparts in that region.

The utility add-on includes logos and skins for most of South America’s ground handling and catering companies and injects realistic-looking vehicles into airports in the region. This includes push back trucks, airport traffic and service equipment such as the ground power unit. Further to the replacement of ground service equipment looks, customised sounds for animations have also been added to the vehicles. With this release, LatinVFR has also split the area into three regions for better representation of the companies that are in those countries.

AREX will simply replace the default vehicles with these custom-painted ones to make it more realistic for the region you’re flying in. It is worth noting that the plan is for AREX to work in conjunction with GSX by FSDreamTeam for Microsoft Flight Simulator and this is not a replacement tool for that type of add-on.

You can pick up a copy of LatinVFR’s AREX Tropics South America for Microsoft Flight Simulator now from the LatinVFR store for $8.49, or from simMarket for €8.49.

To find out more, check out our review on the North American version of AREX.

In related LatinVFR news, they just also released Airport Static Aircraft for Asobo Airports.
