[CLOSED] WIN A Free Copy of iniSimulations A310-300 ON THE LINE for XPL

Inisimulations A310 Xplane (17)

Thanks to those who entered. Congratulations to Myles who won with this inspirational flight idea:

The first flight I will do is a profile similar to that flown by the SA Novespace A310 (F-WNOV). This aircraft is used for microgravity operations, and helps further various fields of scientific study. A typical flight will depart from Paderborn Lippstadt Airport in Germany, and perform a series of low-high-low altitude climbs and dives, with each apogee yielding around 22 seconds of microgravity; each flight will consist of approximately 10 minutes of microgravity. Additionally, I will be sure to make an SA Novespace livery and share it with the community if none are included with the aircraft!

Thanks to everyone who entered! Huge thanks also to iniBuilds for the opportunity. Don’t forget, you can pick up your very own copy of the A310-300 ON THE LINE now from the iniBuilds store.

More on the iniSimulations A310-300

The A310 first flew in 1982 and entered service with Swissair in 1983. The A310 was Airbus’ second aircraft venture and was produced to fill the demand for a smaller aircraft than the A300 and to compete with the Boeing 767-200. 255 aircraft were produced in three variants; civilian – which included a business jet configuration by Airbus Corporate Jets, cargo, and military Multi-Role Transport and Tanker (MRTT). 

iniSimulations has detailed some of the extensive modelling and features that they have included in the upcoming release such as custom cabin announcements and mood lighting, comprehensive systems and failures, fully integrated takeoff and landing performance calculator, autosave functionality as well as integrated Controller Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC) system to use when flying on supported online networks. The A310-300 ON THE LINE will come with Airbus Corporate Jet, civilian and cargo configurations as well as a host of liveries, compiled by the iniBuilds repaint team.

Although no price was disclosed, owners of the A300-600R ON THE LINE will receive a 35% discount for the A310-300 ON THE LINE.

Editorial: PMDG’s Three Year 777 Update

PMDG THRRE YEAR UPDATE
The Boeing 777-200ER is arguably one of the most requested add-ons from PMDG ever since they released their 200LR/F Base Package. Though the 200LR is certainly a very beautiful long-hauler, many fans have always been wondering why PMDG opted to model this variant of the Boeing 777 over the 200ER version of the plane, which is much more widespread in

Pilots – Your Guide to VATSIM Cross the Pond Westbound 2021

Guide To Cross The Pond Vatsim

VATSIM Cross The Pond is one of the most popular events on the online network. The 2021 Westbound edition will start on April 24th 2021 from 11:00z until 23:00z. VATSIM CTP takes place twice a year, one time Westbound (from Europe to North America) during Spring and the other Eastbound (North America to Europe) during Fall. The goal is to replicate at best the specific Oceanic procedures with full ATC from departure to arrival. The lack of radar coverage for traffic deconfliction above the Atlantic Ocean means that the aircraft must obtain a specific clearance, follow a given route and report their position regularly.

These procedures are not so easy to grab at a first glance, but worry not : here’s the FSElite guide to help you make your way across the pond and enjoy the experience as much as possible.
