FS9 (and later, FSX). Drzewiecki Design, the polish team, was probably not aware of Vidan Design's project when they started their own. But since there was another Bornholm in competition, they took their time to work on their vision of this danish airport and island.
FS9 and FSX. Latin VFR is sending us a first postcard (FS9) from his next work, Key West, in Florida. No hot details but we can see that as usual, the Costa Rica's based team has taken care of the surroundings. The whole island will be depicted. Incoming in june.
FSX. First, thanks for your fidelity. I am sorry that yesterday afternoon there wasn't very much news. Orbx, the australian designer, has now published new screenshots of NA GOLD CRM on his forum. To summarize, the team is working this new NA Gold project, plus New Zealand South, plus a new addon for NA Blue PNW along the west side of Discovery bay. This addon will be released in late june.

One month after Airbus evolution release, we are still desperately looking for repaints. Sorry but it seems that Wilco publishing does not really care of it - or did not inform us - of any incoming extras liveries. McPhat is also too busy to give us back his repaints. The studio designed several liveries two years ago but they disappeared... We ? We remain naked but they don't bother.

La Havana is on beta test and Miami city is finished. The teams have also planned two new airports Tamiami and Opa Locka...
Colorful, exotic, highly detailed, but yes, expensive.
FSX. It's probably no use to write an extensive article on this new japanese airport, from Aerosim. But. Despite the price (around 55$/44€), Fukuoka Kuko (RJFF) is really a nice and heavy airport based on highly detailed terminals, with colorful (and animated !) city ads.../.

I am keeping the best for you here...

Published on Aerosoft's forum, may 12. Beta 5 stage.
FS9 and FSX. Airdailyx will not insist on this new Zurich Kloten LSZH project until our hot test.
The reason is that FSdreamteam version is slightly old-fashioned but unsurpassed in term of quality and framerate. FreeZ version is, well,... free. Aerosoft did not hide the fact that their professional departement required this scenery for other projects. We will come back to this.
FS9 and FSX. Claus Kludder, chief of Scansim, designer of Copenhagen airport, is announcing that an update is in preparation. This will affect both versions and improve 3D model textures with high definition textures provided by Swedflight team. To be continued.

The next airport will be Osaka Itami
iFLY B737 NG FSX VERSION RELEASED
In his last scenery, "Cushman Meadows", Orbx has launched fictional airports. But do we really like that ? It's pretty hard to decide between pros and cons. On designers side, making a fictional scenery is satisfying a phantasm../.
