Eaglesoft have given us some more preview shots of their Citation XLS+ that is currently under development. Unfortunately the post did not state anything about a release window or technical status. But the images are definitely worth checking out regardless.
Aerosoft have just released their long awaited Rome Ciampino scenery. It’s been a fair time coming, but it’s finally released. For a price of EUR23.14 this scenery can be yours. Available from both Aerosoft and SimMarket.
Rome Ciampino airport is Rome’s second largest airport after Fiumicino. Serving both civilian and military operations. The airport is a large base for Ryanair providing a diverse route network through Europe and Africa. Although not a base for Wizzair, there is a variety of flights serving Eastern Europe from this airport.
This scenery seems to match the high quality precedent set by Aerosoft with their previous sceneries and looks to have sufficient value for money.
Expect a review from us on this scenery in the near future.
BlackBox Simulations have updated their Cessna Bird Dog to now include both the Sea Plane and the Amphibian versions of the iconic aircraft. Not only does this update include the new models, there’s also some new fixes that improve the aircraft further.
The Cessna Bird Dog was recently updated to include Prepar3D version 4, but this update also works just fine for FSX and P3Dv3.
You can read our review on the Bird Dog here.
Flight Sim World released in early access on May 18th 2017. As I did with Xplane 11 before it, I will take a peek into publicly available data to see how well the game is doing a month after its release. Now it’s only fair to remind everyone we are talking about a game in early access. So these numbers are subject to change even more dramatically than normal full released game. Some may even say it’s not fair to do this yet since the game is still in Early Access. Well my response to that is the same stance I have on reviewing Early Access games. Whats out now is all your guaranteed to get. Times change and shit happens so the future is never guaranteed. Plus I firmly believe once you start charging money for something, you are officially selling a product. You will be judged as such! And I don’t show mercy with this so let’s take a look.

Flight Sim Labs have announced the current progress of their A319 and A321 products over on their forums. The A320 from FSLabs took the flight sim community by storm last year when it released. Bringing one of the most advanced simulations we have ever seen. If you want a more detailed explanation into why it’s such a good aircraft, why not check out our in-depth review?
Andy Wilson, one of the FSlabs developers. Has announced that the A319 and A321 are just around the corner. He states that the A319 will be released shortly after if not at the same time as P3D V4 compatibility for the A320 in the next few weeks. With the A321 likely to release alongside Service Pack 1 later this year.
It will be nice to have more varients of the FSLabs A320 in the sim with the A319 and A321. At the moment only Aerosoft offer such an option but soon FSlabs will be even more of a competitor to the popular A320 simulation range.
Make sure to keep an eye out on our website and Facebook page for when these updates are released.
