Did Aerosoft Just Give Let Slip of Prepar3d V4?

Just a quick one from me. We recently outed some rumoured information regarding Prepar3d V4 and Aerosoft may have let slip a little more than they wanted to.

Whilst talking about the new Connected Flight Deck feature for their upcoming A330, Mathijs showed off what he does whilst working to keep his mind busy. As you can see, he enjoys reading upon datalink, watching TV and writing documents! Fun!

But what’s really interesting is the icons on his desktop itself. In the top, far right hand corner is a black icon that looks a little too familiar. Once zoomed in, you can see it’s clearly Prepar3d V4.

Now we know, we know, anyone can set an icon for the desktop, and maybe it’s Mathijs just teasing us (he does hint at it in his post). Regardless, whether it’s a developer poking some fun or a “whoops, I messed up” mistake, it’s lighthearted.

Before anyone screams FAKE NEWS, it’s not ‘fake’. You can see the image and you can see the post here. Anything relating to Prepar3d v4 is conjecture until Lockheed Martin say something official. Anything going forward is simply discoveries made by us or the community.

Of course, we’ll always verify any information to ensure it’s as accurate as it can be.

Any feedback is always welcome, just comment below or send us an email via our contact page.

      I’d say it’s news because it helps back up the rumor, that the Beta is being used by several developers to assure compatibility of their products in P3Dv4.
      We do know it’s coming. We didn’t know it was installed on Mathijs’ computer, unless of course he is messing with us, which may well be true considering his sense of humor.
