Fligthbeam Studios Shares Single Preview of Auckland for Prepar3D

Nzaa April

Developer Flightbeam has been developing Auckland Airport (NZAA) for Prepar3D for the longest time and whilst news on the product has been quiet, Mir has shared a single new preview of the airport.

As shown above, the new preview highlights a number of 3D cars parked outside of the terminal building. Sadly there isn’t much more to go on at this point in time, but if you want to see previews from February 2020, then you can do so here

We know that Mir spent time at the airport conducting a detailed photoshoot to ensure he captures all of the details of the New Zealand airport.

Whilst this is a preview teaser for the Prepar3D version, Flightbeam shared a range of images for a Microsoft Flight Simulator version back in October last year. The status of both products remain unknown at this point in time, but we can only hope this teaser is the start of something more detailed to come.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated with any further news or information.

MilViz Releases 180 EVO


A bit by surprise, MilViz has released a Piaggio P.180 EVO. A bit of an unknown, although very iconic plane due to its forward wings on the aircraft’s nose. The Piaggio P.180 is an Italian business aircraft, used by charter companies and feeder airlines. The plane is also in use with several militaries, mainly the Italian armed forces.

MilViz rendition of the P.180 EVO comes with a number of features, such as a fully-featured FMS, and a PL21 with radars, checklists and composite mode. It also features TrueGlass dynamic rain effects, RealLight implementation, PBR textures and high-quality modelling. The MilViz team also claims to have faithfully reproduced systems and avionics, as well as accurately modelled turboprop behaviour of the PT6A-66B engine.

Compatibility is for Prepar3D v5.1 only, although the product page does state that the product may also be installed in Prepar3D v4. Customers of the MilViz 180 EVO that purchase directly from the company will be entitled to a discount on the MSFS version upon release.

This release initially happened in February but was pulled from release within a few hours due to some issues. However, it’s now back on sale for $59.99 USD.
