Jardesign A340 (3)

X-Plane aircraft manufacturer, JARDesign Group, has released previews of their upcoming Airbus A340-500 with the integration of Avitab.

JARDesign first announced their A340-500 product back in 2018 with initial renders of the aircraft. With the latest screenshots of the aircraft’s cockpit, it is evident to see that great progress has been made with the development including the addition of the multifunctional Avitab. Avitab is capable of displaying any PDF format file such as airport charts, aircraft checklists and standard operating procedure documents that you may want to access right from inside the cockpit. Avitab also has a live map function that will display the aircraft’s current position on either a topographical, satellite or general reference map.

Airfoillabs Shares Renders for Upcoming DC-3 on XPL

Airfoillabs Dc 3 Xpl (2)

Aircraft developer Airfoillabs has shared a range of renders for their upcoming “study level” DC-3 for X-Plane 11. The developer took to both Facebook and Twitter to share the previews of various parts of the flight deck for the aircraft. We can see in the previews parts of the navigator and radio operator stations, along with other aids such as charts.

We know from our previous post that Airfoillabs is collaborating with The Association Merville Dakota, who have afforded them access to documentation and visual data for the development of the DC-3 and C-47. While the basic flight model is ready, along with much of the 3d modelling it would seem, time is still needed to develop the aircraft’s complex systems.

The DC-3 was a groundbreaking propeller-driven airliner produced by California’s Douglas Aircraft Company from 1936 to 1942. The Douglas C-47 Dakota variant was developed from the DC-3, and was used by the Allies in World War 2. In total, Douglas Aircraft Company built and shipped 607 DC-3s, and 10,174 C-47s.

Airfoillabs also confirmed that they are “slowly finishing the update of [the] KA350, which will soon be releasing to our customers.” Once we learn more about any of the aircraft products, we’ll let you know.
