In this episode I review The QualityWings 787 for FSX. My general reaction is that it is a disappointing release that flies poorly and lacks fidelity in the required automation systems. I also talk about The VAS issues that Orbx Arlanda suffers from in FSX noting that wouldn’t be an issue is P3D V4. Finally I talk about the future of the podcast. Check out On Approach for an additional podcast you can listen to.
In this episode I talk about the news from Flight Sim Con. Namely, The QualityWings 787, The LevelD 757, Flightbeam’s KMSP and KPDX. Also mentioned is FSDreamTeam’s KCLT which I’ve put on the bottom of my wish list. This month I got ImagineSim’s KAUS and FlyTampa’s Copenhagen and Athens.
I talk with Nicole and Evan of FlightSimCon to go over this year’s event. Dovetail, Lockheed Martin and Laminar Research will be at the show talking about their next gen platforms as well as a who’s who of flight sim developers and real world aviation outfits. For more info about the event see flightsimcon.com
In this episode I announce that I won’t be attending FlightSimCon this year but will be dedicating the donations to attending next year. I also talk FSDreamTeam, P3D4, Aerosoft’s Barcelona and the competition on that airport, IDS KSMF, Bellingham, landings, Taxi2Gate St Louis, my wishlist for next month and my recent activities in the sim. Lastly, I recommend a panel video podcast called On Approach
In this episode a next gen sim gets voted off the show! I spend the rest of the episode talking about the serious sim market and what platform I think PMDG, Aerosoft, A2A, TFDi, and LevelD will use. There is some heavy X Plane 11 talk and a lot of marketing talk that may be good for your next crew rest.
