Aeroplane Heaven Updates Chipmunk

The chipmunk is even more chipper thanks to its new update.

Aeroplane Heaven has had a busy time as of late. From the announcement they have been working with Microsoft on the new 40th Anniversary Edition to releasing the Chipmunk for the sim. The latest news from the aircraft development team is the fact they have updated their DH Canada Chipmunk to version 1.40.

The changelog, down below, shows there has been a number of changes made to the aircraft. Radios can now be turned off, modelling and texturing issues have been addressed and a few other bugs that slipped through are now resolved.

The new update can be obtained from your original vendor and installed on the top of the version you have currently.

If you don’t own the DH Canada Chipmunk, you can buy it from various stores including Orbx and SimMarket for $28.95.
