RealAir is closing down!

RealAir Simulations announced today that thew will be closing their doors. Sean Moloney said “Early in 2015 my partner Carla was diagnosed with aggressive cervical cancer.” He goes on to say that treatment has been unsuccessful and sadly she has only been given 1-2 years to live.

He then ended on a more positive piece of news saying “The great news is that further scans taken several months later suggested the cancer was clearing up, and each scan since then has been good news.”

On behalf of FSElite I would like to extend our best wishes. Rob Young has stated that having reached retirement age he feels he no longer has the energy to continue working for RealAir. The two have decided to shut down the company.  This development is sad to hear as Real Air has been one of the most popular and innovative developers for Flight simulator over the past 16 years. I think I speak for everyone here when I say we wish both of them well in their future’s. And we all thank them for their hard work over the years.

Real Air has stooped selling their addons as of right now. Currently it is unknown what exactly will become of their products, or how they plan on handling activation in the future is Unknown. Real Air has been known over the past 16 years to develop some of the best, and most innovative products for Flight Simulator. Pioneering such things as Smooth Gauge Technology, RealView (a system that simulates the forces experienced by a pilot in flight), Realistically simulated engine failures, And user-configurable VC panel layouts.
