Where oh where to begin… Well for starters, I have just had my first experience with Flight which lasted about... well, a while let’s just say. I did the silly missions and listened to the instructor chick play her ukulele thing. Honestly, my impression of this platform is simply put. It’s a game. But do I like it? Well, in a word, yes. And I believe it is this feeling of mine that Microsoft was banking on. They are playing on my love for flying, my love that is… for flight.

Can’t wait for Heraklion? Then you can get Heraklion instead to hold you over until Heraklion is released.
FS9/FSX. Simbreeze has just released their version of Heraklion LGIR airport for FSX and very shortly FS9.
FSX. The PMDG's Queen of the Sky, still in the top five hard core liners, will have its fourth livery package. A promise by Terrence and McPhat Studios. The project is launch. Let's hope editors will be less reluctant to give permissions for liveries. Otherwise...

FLIGHT. So Microsoft has finaly released its "FLIGHT" platform, betraying the very first idea the firm developed years ago about simulation. Of course, Airdailyx will not specialy cover this product as this is a toy, a cash machine, fiercely conceived to push aside all the editors who have patiently developed this market. We don't support this product.
Today LH Simulations has informed us that they will no longer be able to offer us freeware products for the following reasons citing, long work hours, increased costs, products they need to purchase for sceneries etc. WHAT?? That's outrageous!!

FS9/FSX. Screenshot master Rainer Duda has posted a couple more screenshots of German Airports 3 2012 Hamburg. I wonder if these minor updates are the culprits delaying Dusseldorf, Nurnberg etc. Either way they look good as always. I'm looking forward to the updates.
More screenshots here: http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/52728-preview-german-airports-3-2012/

It's been quite an unusual busy week for us at AirDailyX but don't worry! We are here! We have some new FS comics on the way; we are discussing ways to improve the blog, as well as working on the ADX Facebook page. In the meantime, here is a bit of news that went down this past week as we kick back into action to start a new week!

The guys over at GotBush.org are in the process of completely revamping the classic Otter by Eugene Heyart. I must say, Mr. Heyart has been quite missed in the FS community. This is a guy who brought many freeware aircraft to market that I still enjoy to this day.

FS9/FSX. Drzewiecki Design has just posted a slew of new photos of what is rapidly becoming the city of Miami which will include over 1500 custom made buildings of Miami Downtown, Miami Beach, and Key Biscayne. It will feature day and night photoreal ground coverage of the entire scenery area.

FS9/FSX/iPhone/iPad. Today while doing my usual browsing for FS news to update you guys and gals, I stumbled across what I feel is by far the coolest application to use with my simulator. If you are like me, on most days I just don't have time to just sit and fly.

FS9/FSX. 2012 is off to a very good start and today I bring you my third impression of the year. I invite you to join me as we head to Southern Germany this time to a small town near the Swiss and Austrian boarders right on the shores of beautiful Lake Constance.
FSX. Stanislaw has posted the first screens of EPKK WIP for FSX. Soon, FSX pilots will get to enjoy the masterpiece FS9ners have been experiencing for the last couple months. If you haven't already, have a read of my FS9 review of EPKK to hold you over.

FS9/FSX. Drzewiecki Design. Stanislaw has finally confirmed the Miami city project is very much in progress and it will include both FS9 and FSX versions. What's even better is he is hinting for a FS9 release in a few weeks. I am biting my fingernails very eagerly for this one.
FS9/FSX. Aerosoft and the GAP team have released Friedrichshafen X. I am very excited about this airport. Stay tuned for my "impression" of this lovely looking scenery in the coming days.
In the mean time, you can find more information about it here: http://www.aerosoft.com/cgi-local/us/iboshop.cgi?showd590!0,,D12179

As some of you may know, Malev, the flag carrier of Hungary recently ceased operations due to debt issues. I do feel for all of those wonderful people who have lost their jobs in this horrible situation and I will truly miss seeing that ol blue nose in the sky. I myself have personally felt the impact of losing a job I very much loved when MAXjet Airways went bankrupt Christmas EVE 2007 as I was boarding a flight from L.A. to Stansted.
FS9/FSX. Strong words from the man himself. Papa Mir, the mastermind behind FlightBeam Studios has been on hiatus for a while bringing Baby Mir into the world. He has announced he is back on track for a 2nd quarter 2012 release time period. He has also emphasized the new KPHX project is already more extensive than that of his KSFOX project.

FS9. QualityWings has released a new video showing the Avro RJ APU and engine startup and shutdown procedure. The primary feature of the video is the engine sounds. Not bad! What really took my focus was the control panel where the doors, wheel chocks, etc. can be controlled. And the fact that they did not set the parking brake.
FSX. The swiss team, designer of Sion and Switzerland Pro X, will release Lugano in March. Expect high price due to a strong overevaluated Swiss Franc. But Lugano is a charming airport. Much more screenshots have been published here.

AES/GSX. There are some very interesting comments between Mathijs of Aerosoft and Umberto of FSDT regarding AES and GSX. As I obviously don't want to take anything out of context, we'll simply refer to the link. Some very interesting comments from both sides indeed. I just hope in the long run, the situation can be simplified and the two products will benefit simmers better as a whole.
FSX. PMDG's CEO, Mr Randazzo has posted an important update on PMDG projects. First shots of B777 project to be unveiled end of this quarter. A new project launched for X-Plane, (updated) PMDG will not develop aircrafts for P3D due to legal considerations. And most of all.. A new project launched... the Douglas DC6B CLOUDMASTER.
FS 2004. I am honestly excited to finally share what I consider to be not only the highest detailed airport ever to be released for FS2004, but also my favorite airport release of 2011. I won’t so much as call this a review or hot test. We’ll just say it’s my extensive impression.
It's surely seems busy over in the QW SIM hangar with the Avro project and extensive 787 in development, it's nice to see them drop us a bone every now and then. These are just a couple of what I am sure will be many liveries for this high tech bird. Will we see release this year? I sure hope so.

I recall the nightmare last year of a developer promising us a Miami city scenery that never came. Now it perhaps seems that maybe Drzewiecki Design is heading to America? Once before Stanislaw brought to life a dead (or should I say completely new) project that so many were waiting years for. Of course I am talking about the Bruk freeware EPKK. http://www.epkk.pl/

FSX. The french designer has released a "must have" if you wish to fly over France and french Alps. Swiss Geneva surroundings ? Chambery and Annecy ? The Mount-Blanc ? If this rings a bell, PHOTO Rhône-Alpes will impress you. Unless you want to wait for the whole pack with 3D Autogen and all promised stuff...

Let's face it. Regardless of what runway you depart on be it FS9, FSX or X-Plane we all have had nightmares with our flight simulators. Avsim among other developer forums are continuously inundated with queries from frustrated simmers encountering problems with their simulators. Ultimately, the best available resources are the forums where desperate frustrated individuals seek responses to their problems in hopes that a knight in shining armor will ride over the hill on a white horse with the answer.
Today Aerosoft has launched ASN, short for Aerosoft Sim News. This is a new page in which Aerosoft will keep their readers up to date with developments in the community including products developed/published from competing companies be it freeware or payware. Hmm… now I wonder where they got this idea...
