Runway 26 Sim Norman Manley Intl Preview 2017

Runway 26 Simulations preview a new airport over at FSDeveloper called Norman Manley International in Kingston, Jamaica.

What is so special with this scenery is that it is compatible with not only FSX and P3D but also with X Plane. Kingston scenery will be payware this time as it is a complete overhaul from the ground up of the previous version made in 2015 that was freeware. Developer is working on it alone and so far no release date has been decided.

For more frequent updates please follow @rwy26sim Instagram account, which also can be found at RWY26 Sim website. Also make sure you follow RWY26 Sim on Facebook as well as FSElite for more updates.

Flight Factor A320 Ultimate for X-Plane Video Landing

Just a few days ago, Flight Factor announced they’re working on a highly detailed version of the A320 for X-Plane. This got fans excited to see what the 64-bit platform could do for the airline type. With advance features and different simulator parameters, X-Plane fans were excited to see what could be done. Luckily, we didn’t have to hold our breath long as a video showcasing the aircraft landing into Madeira was released onto Youtube.

The video not only shows the RNV approach, but also the incredible rain effects splashing against the windshield.

I’m personally not convinced by all the texturing and modelling work, but it is worth remember this is still work in progress.

You can view it above. More news when we get it.

XP Realistic Pro

Update
XP Realistic Pro has been updated to version 1.0.3. More info can be found here at Future Game Shop.

Future Game Shop released a couple of days ago an add-on called “XP Realistic Pro” for X Plane 11. It appears to be similar to Accusim V2 that we are used to from the FSX and P3D simulation but for X Plane instead.

XP Realistic Pro brings a whole new level of realism by adding vibrations, enhancing your simulation experience by making you feel that you are actually flying. But it’s not only that, also the sounds are enhanced to give you as the pilot flying the ultimate level of realism. Flying through turbulence will be a new experience compared to XP 11 default turbulence.

The video shows enhanced turbulence experience, nose wheel roll sound while being retracted, G-force effects, speed brakes sounds and all this can be easily customized from within the simulator.

Features:

  • Growing list of 16 sounds
  • Growing list of 22 real life immersions
  • Aircraft profile editor
  • 2 Default profiles for GA and Jets
  • Tons of realism

For more information make sure you head over to Future Game Shop to purchase this for just 11.99 GBP.

Flight Factor Preview of A320 Ultimate

Flight Factor has today announced their little secret about their Flight Factor A320 Ultimate. They have finally officially announced that they are going to create their Airbus A320 Ultimate.

Flight Factor began two years ago with a cooperation group to work on a real training sim for pilots. A simulation that has a totally different depth than their Profession series models.

After additionally two years of extra tough work FF are close to completion with their A320 model. Compared to the A350 that FF has made before this new A320 is made by a completely different team. This comes from” the real world” so to speak. The model is going to be completely different than what he have previously seen and experienced before which sounds interesting.

Previously the only Airbus A320 available for XP10 and today even XP 11 was the JARDesign A320 Neo.

Here are some of the unique features planned for release:

·        Hi quality and realistic interior and exterior visual model.

·        Hi quality and realistic sound pack with hundreds of sounds from the real aircraft.

·        Hi quality display graphics (4K panel).

·        Unique rain effects.

·        Fast access popup panel system.

·        Precise aerodynamical model with unique features like transonic effects, hi speed stall etc.

·        Specific engine model with realistic performance and dynamics.

·        Realistic simulation of transition effects, self-tests and other real aircraft undocumented features.

·         Precise flight management system with full profile predictions and modes of operation.

Renders of Latinwings Santiago De Compostela Airport (LEST)

Latinwings have shown off some new renders of their upcoming Santiago De Compostela Airport (LEST), which is stated to be “coming soon” for FSX, P3D and X-Plane.

You can see work on the terminal buildings and jetways is coming along nicely, with texture work yet to come. The modelling work seems excellent from first looks and we’re excited to see what gets produced in the near future.

When we have more details, we’ll be sure to let you know.

New Video Showing Off Navigraph Update Progress

Navigraph have released another video showing them back at work working on their new charts application which is set to release soon. In this video we enjoy a sneak preview of what to come as well as some more emojis.

It’s great to see the progress being made on this application. This video shows off one of the key features for the new update, enroute charts. This will give you the ability to see your route on a much wider scale no matter where you are in the world. Although we do already have some enroute charts within Navigraph this new update will bring a far greater expanse of en route charts with more detail.

That’s all from them for now, it’s obvious that they are hard at work. Any more news regarding this upcoming product will of course be reported by FSElite. For now, enjoy the video.

Back in the office! We just got airway search to work in Charts Cloud. You can search airways by text or by clicking in the chart. No more tracing routes with your finger on busy enroute charts. 👆🌎🚫

JustSim Announces Luxembourg Releasing in Days

I’ve asked the others in the FSElite team and we’re all pretty convinced that this has yet to even be announced by JustSim. I’ve checked their Facebook account and website, and there’s been no mention of Luxembourg. So with that said, JustSim have said that they will release Luxembourg Airport (ELLX) in the next few days.

Only one screenshot was provided, but you can see plenty of work has gone into the markings on the ground and there appears to be some nice dynamic reflection on the terminal building itself.

It’s coming for Prepar3d, X-Plane 10 and 11 in the next “2-3 days”, so will update you on release. No mention of FSX, so maybe they won’t be supporting the older platform?
