[August 14th 2016]

It’s that time once again to check in on the X-Plane side of simulations to see what’s going on in that world, and it’s not much, I’m afraid.  Since we are now in the dog days of summer, it’s quite understandable that there’s been a break from releasing content by developers.  I myself have been away on vacation and I still have another outing to take care of before summer is officially done with me, or I, it depending on how you view it…  But enough of that, off to the announcements, both from the week of August 1st.

IBIZA

The main airport for the popular getaway island of Ibiza, Spain, Ibiza International (LEIB) is a major European holiday destination.  The primary airlines serving the airport are Easyjet, Thomson, & Vueling among others.

Ibiza

In order to produce a faithful replica in the flight simulator, PilotPlus have carefully studied every aspect of the airport.  Being an International airport, it is perfect for flying long-haul heavies as well as shorter regional and domestic and regional flights.  Challenging to fly into and out of, exploring the area in GA can also be a great experience.

Not only is every texture in HD and photoreal, many visual effects have been implemented such as custom night shadows and night lighting with ambient occlusion baked in for a very real-world look and feel.   Every 3D model has been modelled to extreme accuracy, replicating the atmosphere of the real air-port! Emulating a close to real life experience in X-Plane!

Our "Looking Back" feature takes us into the past of Aviation. This could be a famous incident, a milestone for aviation or an educational piece to help Simmers. On Saturday, July 23rd, 1983, things were about to get a lot more exciting at the racetrack/former Royal Canadian Air Force Station Gimli, Manitoba.  Due to a fuel calculation error, Air Canada
