Alabeo Announces The Mooney Ovation!

FSX/P3D. Carenado and Alabeo are on a freaking roll lately with several announcements and releases since the start of the new year coupled with what's been in development since last year. The C&A trains are in full speed with the latest announcement coming out of the Alabeo wing. With the Mooney Ovation. First renders are up! Thanks to ADX reader Dave L for the tipoff! What will come next??

D.Cat's Eurofighter Typhoon Beta Progression:

FSX/P3D. The latest toy expected to emerge from Dino Cattaneo's toy box is the Eurofighter Typhoon and it is looking good! Dino can really build these babies. He is currently making his way through beta and hopefully something definitive will be released soon. For now, I couple new shots to wet your appetite! Full info via the source link. Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Aeroplane Heaven Typhoon MK1B Released!

FSX/P3D. This was actually released a short while back already I believe. A number of readers were emailing be that the Hawker Typhoon had been released and I kept thinking Hawker in which case I covered the release already. But with another 3 emails this morning, it was prudent I actually check. This thing looks totally badass and will be a very fitting addition to the hangars of anyone who is a fan of WW2 warbirds. As I have said before, this is AP's strong suit. Price is about $25 bucks. More info via the source link and thanks to all the readers for keeping me on my toes. You know who you are! 

FSIMSTUDIOS Calgary International Released!

FSX/P3D. I have been saying this for years now: we need more Canadian airports!! FSDT, and FlyTampa has delivered 3 of the largest airports but there is still much more Canada has to offer. FSIMStudios has stepped up to the plate with their rendition of Calgary which is the best rendition of this airport I have ever seen thus far. Price is about $23 bucks. More info via the source link and thanks to several readers for the tip this morning as I lost myself for hours in Oculus Landfall yet again! Good game Slayer! 

Carenado AC690B: First Renders!

FSX/P3D. And then there were 3! Lest we forget Carenado is working on the PA31T Cheyenne an aircraft not made for FS since Digital Aviation released theirs a million years ago. Still no CRJ... Anyhoo, Carenado has begun work on the Aero Commander 690B stretch limo. I'm surprised actually! I really did not expect another Aero Commander to come so soon after the Shrike, but I am not complaining either! More shots via the source!

Note: This is actually the Turbo Commander correct? Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

Oh Is It Friday? We Made It!

FSX/P3D. Finally nearing the end of the week and almost time to tell the boss to shove off! The Aerosoft Airbus team has been doing a tremendous job with their transparency regarding the A330 and typically on Fridays they give us more details to show. I really think the community likes this approach as it allows everyone feel as if they are a part of the process. The details with this project are getting more complex with each new preview. So head home grab a beer and get ready for the weekend!

The Douglas C-47R Skytrain Updated: V3.14 Beta!

FSX/P3D. The best just got better with a new beta update which includes nightlighted VVC, significantly updated Interactive Checklist, Automixture function, fine tuned flight dynamics and groundhandling with 2 choices of groundsteering, OMI Marker lights, selectable 'Cutie' picture plus various modifications, corrections and additions according to V3.12 users feedback. Go grab it from Sim Outhouse! Thanks to Amos for the tip!

Carenado Announces The B390 Premier.

FSX/P3D. Carenado is once again returning to the lite business jets and this time it's the Beechcraft Premier. I won't lie, this is not one of the prettiest jets out there. I would have elected for the 400XP. I know many are typically not pleased with Carenado's systems and in recent months the inclusion of the GTN systems has made people really happy. But in the case of jets like this, I am sure they will not include GTN avionics leaving many of you to hack it like you did with the Hawker. But I actually have another idea for Carenado.

We all know Carenado's stronger area is in the analogue gauges department so perhaps (go with me on this) Carenado takes a strike with the more classic business jets because believe it or not, there are still a lot of us non millennials that still love VOR navigation. Therefore imagine Carenado releasing the likes of these aircraft just to name a few:

  • North American T-39 Sabreliner
  • Dassault Falcon 20
  • Lockheed JetStar
  • Hansa Jet

Coupled with Carenado's beautiful and gorgeous looks on these older beauties that actually require effort to fly them could be a really exciting niche for Carenado. What are your thoughts? And besides, aircraft like this would make more sense to include GTN avionics as aftermarket addons as opposed to trying to do that to aircraft like above which I am sure will come with the PL21. Am I overreaching here? Thanks to ADX reader Dave L for the tipoff!
