Aerosoft launches new design

Aerosoft have launched the new design for their web shop! The new design brings the shop into current day standards, looks a lot nicer and cleaner and should make it a lot easier for anyone to find their favourite products and purchase them. The site is also completely responsive so you don’t have to fiddle with your phone or tablet when you want to buy a new scenery.

The new homepage comes with a layout with big tiles, each for another category of Aerosofts products. Whether that be aircrafts, busses, trains or other services; you can now easily go there from the home screen. Quickly checking up on news and updates or looking at some new screenshots for that scenery that just came out has become a lot, lot easier.

Also pretty nice is the new customer page where you can more easily see your details, see the products that you bought or check your wish list. We haven’t made any purchases through the new store yet but supposedly this has become a much better experience as well.

We’d love to hear what you think about their new storefront so make sure to use that comment area down below!

PMDG Release 747-400 Queen of the Skies 2

One of the most highly anticipated products of the year had arrived! PMDG dropped a bomb shell earlier today announcing that the product would be with us shortly. This aircraft has been long in the making and a much wanted add on for all those Boeing or 747 fans out there. You can purchase the aircraft here for the price of $89.99 (FSX) and $134.99 (P3D)

This is PMDG’s 3rd rendition of the Queen of the Skies and once again it looks like they have blown our expectations out of the park. They have included almost all 747-400 models that are currently avaliable with the 747-8 to follow soon. We have been teased for quite some time about this product and it is great that we have finally got our hands on it.

The beta testers over at PMDG have been doing an excellent job to make sure that the release has been as quick as possible and that any issues were quickly eradicated. Some of the technology that has been implemented into this 747 will soon be coming into the 777 which is exciting news. We look forward to seeing what PMDG have up their sleeve regarding future products.

Any news regarding the 747-8 expansion will of course be reported over here at FSElite. God save the Queen!
