Orbx Preview Santa Barbara

Orbx Santa Barbara Previews FSElite 17

You may recall that Orbx Santa Barbara was announced back at FlightSimCon 2016, but since then it’s been extremely quiet with some wondering if they’d ever be able to add KSBA to their library. Fortunately, Orbx Santa Barbara developer Misha Cajic has today reassured us that the project is alive and well, and closer than ever!

(I won’t include every screenshot posted, as well over 40 were included in the original post. You can view them all here.

In addition to the huge amount of screenshots, some new information was shed on the project. Besides the, obviously, high quality rendition of the airport, customers can expect to see a 500sq km fully detailed scenery around the airport, covering the city of Santa Barbara, Goleta, as well as the mountain range that’s visible from the airport. Other features mentioned an additional lite landing area, 0CA3 Crawford airport, as well as advanced rendering, plenty of VFR landmarks and POIs, as well as OrbxFlow technology.

While no information was given on price or a release date, Misha did say that it is, “very close to complete”, and to expect more updates over the coming week. We’ll let you know when we have more on Orbx Santa Barbara!

PMDG Continues to Tease 747-8 Release for the Weekend

PMDG 748 Landing

PMDG have started the hype train and continue to run it at full speed. Yesterday, they teased that the PMDG 747-8 would be releasing this weekend. In a Facebook post released by the company, it said “we are planning a big meal for the weekend” – alongside an image of the aforementioned aircraft.

Today that tease continued with RSR posting for the first time in a long time in the Avsim forums. His post topic “Where in the world is RSR & the PMDG 747-8”, he shared a picture of the aircraft configured to land, along with the tease that the answer to his topic question is actually in the image.

This was then followed up with a few more shots of the aircraft from both RSR and Kyle.

As the weekend comes closer and closer, maybe we’ll see some more teases of the aircraft in action. When will it release? Soon™.

Thanks to everyone who sent this out way.
