82641252 1245440468959939 8603813787406958592 O

Gaya Simulations has provided on Facebook what they are calling their “last preview before release” of their Kos Island and Airport (LGKO) scenery. The serie of screenshots, taken from X-Plane 11, show extensive airport terminal details, various objects, a night shot and an overview of the Kastri rock just a few hundred meters off the village of Kampos, on Kos island.

While the developer explains this is “not the final build but very close to it”, the teasers let us except yet another very high quality scenery from the developer. The scenery is scheduled for release for both X-Plane 11 and P3D V4.

Interestingly, Gaya Simulations initiated a short Christmas give-away that is now closed, where some simmers have been able to grab a free of charge copy of the yet to be released scenery. The scenery will be available for purchase upon release, with a pricing not yet set. Make sure to stay tuned on FSElite for further information on Gaya Simulations Kos Island and other products.

JustFlight posted several screenshots on Facebook of their BAe 146, Airbus A300, and the Robin DR400. All three aircraft will be available for both FSX and Prepar3D v4. The A300 and BAe 146 are both still early in development as only minimal texture work has been completed and modeling is still ongoing. The DR400 appears to be close to release as a full exterior shot is included as well as a close up of the cockpit.

The BAe 146 is still “a long way off” from release but lots of progress has been made on the visual model. JustFlight is sure to please with this aircraft as they have with plenty of aircraft in the past. You can read our previous article about the JustFlight BAe 146 here. As mentioned in our previous post, the A300 will feature many welcomed additions to the flightsim community including RealLight, TrueGlass, PBR materials and more.  A custom paint kit will, authentic sound set, and comprehensive manual will be included with the release of the aircraft. Neither aircraft have received a release date as there is much more work to be completed.

Moving on to the DR400, the aircraft will feature a custom-coded electrical system, spark plug fouling, and functioning carburetor heat and primer controls. All of the aircraft’s textures will be rendered in stunning 4K using PBR materials. An interactive checklist, dimmable instrument lighting, authentic fuel and RPM needle ‘wobble’, Flight1 GPS and GNS integration, and flight computer panel are just some of the many features that will grace the aircraft. For a full list of features and pictures, check out our latest DR400 post. No release date has been given but it is safe to assume it will be very soon!
