Prepar3D Previews

Flightbeam Auckland Continues Progress

Flightbeam Auckland P3d 1

Whilst we have waited for Flightbeam’s Auckland Airport (NZAA) for quite some time, it would appear that the wait may be coming to an end. In a new development post by the development team, Flightbeam confirmed that most of the airside elements of the airport are now “final.”

In the May development post, the team said that progress is coming along “quickly” at this point for the Prepar3D version of the airport. Considering it was announced a very long time ago, hearing that progress is coming along is certainly reassuring words. Furthermore, they also reminded people that once we start to see previews of the airport at night, it means that we’re “really close” to the airport being released. While we wait, we can enjoy some new previews of the airport in P3D.

We are counting down the nights until the airport is firmly in our Prepar3D installations. Who’s looking forward to flying to Auckland when it finally is released?

Thanks to Seth for the tip.

New Previews for Just Flight’s F28 In Prepar3D

Just Flight F28 P3d (15)

Just Flight has sent FSElite a series of brand new previews for their upcoming F28 in Prepar3D. The aircraft was originally announced back in April 2019 and progress has been slow and steady, but today we have a set of new previews directly from within Prepar3D v5. The new previews focus on the cockpit and many of the finer details, the wear and tear and other environmental effects found in an older aircraft.

The Dutch Fokker F28 is a short-range, regional airliner announced way back in 1962. Today, the F28 is only used by military operators around the world. Prominent carriers which used to fly the F28 included, KLM Cityhopper, NLM Cityhopper, Piedmont, USAir, Air Canada and many more.

Just Flight’s rendition of the F28 Fellowship will include the 1000 and 4000 variant, PBR materials, TFDi RealLight and TrueGlass, realistic distinctive animations, an authentic cockpit, highly-realistic flight dynamics and more which can be found in the comprehensive features list at the end of this article.

Not much else was shared during this preview update, but we’ll be keeping a close eye on any further developments. You can also see the product page on Just Flight’s website.
