    • I don't when the boss will do another, but I can tell you what I'm seeing from working with Aerosoft and other developers. This is based soley on my own interaction with others.  I think it's important to say that the vast majority of flight simmers are not represented (they don't post) in any forums.   There are still a good number of people using FSX, in fact I was very surprised at the number I'm seeing. Based on my experience, I'd say that at least 50% of the flight sim community is still using FSX and why not?  The Steam version of FSX is incredibly stable and works on many older computers and graphics cards, while a jump to P3DV4 means a hardware upgrade of at least $600 U.S. for most people if they want to take advantage of things like Dynamic Lighting.   Far more people are hanging on to P3DV3 that I thought would be. I think the reason is that we had several years for people t transition to P3DV3 from FSX and previous P3D Versions.  I hear a lot that people wanted to wait before purchases V4 to ensure it was stable, while others said they wanted to wait until the first service pack came out before switching.  Remember that many of these people don't visit the forums regularly, and when they do they don't look to read all the posts about what has transpired.  Instead, they wait until hey feel comfortable the software warrants change.  Still others have told me that they were not ready to reinvest in purchasing aircraft and scenery by switching to P3DV4, despite the fact that up until now there hasn't been any cost whatsoever for aircraft or scenery when changing from previous P3D versions to V4.  Again, they don't spend time reading in the forums because of the time involved - and this is a prevalent answer.  Still another reason is there is no Airbus yet for P3DV4.  I think or good portion of these guys will transition to P3DV4 once the first update is released and Aerosoft releases the Airbus for V4 - a lot of eyes are on this!   I have no idea what FSW's sales are, and I since I don't support or work on any products for FSW I wouldn't hazard a guess as to what percentage of people are using the product - though none of he commercial airliner guys yet.... however FSL recently said they would take their A320 to FSW.  Sounds like they want to capitalize on the face that nobody else has done it yet, but who knows.   I don't know, I'm probably not even close to the real numbers!        
    • This is the route I plan to take. I hope it's ok: I'm choosing London Gatwick as my starting and finishing point. Here are the list of stops I'll be making, with all mandatory landmarks highlighted in red:   London, United Kingdom (EGKK) Nice, France (LFMN) Corfu, Greece (LGKR) Heraklion, Greece (LGIR) Port Said, Egypt (HEPS) Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (OEJN) Dubai, United Arab Emirates (OMDB) Karachi, Pakistan (OPKC) Mumbai, India (VABB) Calcutta, India (VECC) Bangkok, Thailand (VTBD) Catbi, Vietnam, (VVCI) Hong Kong, Hong Kong (VHHH) Shanghai, China (ZSPD) Yokohama, Japan (RJTF) Yuzhno, Russia (UHSS) Petropavlovsk, Russia (UHPP) Adak Island, Alaska (PADK) Anchorage, Alaska (PANC) Juneau, Alaska (PAJN) Vancouver, Canada (CYVR) San Francisco, USA (KSFO) Denver, USA (KDEN) Chicago, USA (KORD) New York, USA (KJFK) Gander, Canada (CYQX) Kangerlussuaq, Greenland (BGSF) Reykjavik, Iceland (BIKF) Dublin, Ireland (EIDW) London, United Kingdom (EGKK)   Hoping all goes according to plan. I haven't filled in any dates because I'm not really sure myself what my exact dates will be.   Best of luck to everyone.
    • Hi all. Looking forward to getting this tour underway. I enjoyed the RTW tour, so this one should be just as much fun. Mathijs said that using different aircraft is encouraged, so in that case I'll be using the PMDG 737, the Aerosoft CRJ 700 and the Aerosoft Airbus A320 (if it's released).   I've also recently purchased Carenado's Phenom 100 business jet, so I hope to try and learn how to fly it if I have time. I'm using P3Dv4, so you have to excuse me for using a lot of default airports. I will try and purchase some more airports as they become available. I've recently become a single man so I have a little bit more money to spend than usual lol. I'd probably be better off saving up for a new PC, but I'm rubbish at saving. I'll be using Active Sky for P3Dv4 for real world weather, and I'll be using PFPX for flight planning.
    •   Exactly, I think Aerosoft does not yet have a definition about my doubt.
      So I'll wait longer, wait for an official response.     João Alfredo
