  1. Stef: My employer uses the Gogo Wifi system for both our 737NG and Embraer ERJ jets. If you need close up pictures of the antenna, I can send them to you anytime.

    Trying to install liveries

    Stefan: Could the Aerosoft Team create a new download section called Airbus Professional then a subsection for A319 and A318. That way, we re-painters can upload our Airbus Professional only repaints into a dedicated download section. Also, in this manner, our original 32 bit Bus repaints can remain unchanged in their own subsection.

    Updating your busses

    Will the Aerosoft Updater give me notifications that there are updates available when I am flying the bus/using the livery manager? Will there be a function to automatically install updates when Prepar3d is not in use?
  4. The present Airbus is correct to the CEO versions. They use a halogen type lamp that is very bright and provides a nearly white light. The yellowish light you are accustomed to happens when the plastic lenses become cloudy and yellow with age. Most airlines like us change them long before they get to that condition.

    'External' shops

    Will preorders be available at the Aerosoft Shop before the official release date?
  6. Hello, I was wondering, does PFPX currently support the export function to TFDI 717 XML Flight Plan Format? If not, can I send you some documentation from TFDI for future software development?
  7. In our organization, at least 1/3 of A&P Mechanics own a copy of P3D/FSX with PMDG NGX installed. I bet there is a similar number of pilots, maybe more. I have even heard my local Air Traffic Control accidentally say "Pass behind the 737 NGX and proceed to your gate Alpha-Six." PMDG really are genius with their marketing. That being said, when AS comes out with their AS Professional Bus, I am sure the lingo will catch on as well. Lets face, many of real world airline employees use FSX/P3D in own 'Professional Manner' at home and I am sure quite a few visit these forums. Maybe we could have Mathijas include a signed self portrait in a digital format included with each copy AS forum member purchase.

    Repaint requests

    CaptKornDog, in order to do a repaint like that, a painter would need a really good painting for us to work from. Here is a really good example: https://cdn6.bigcommerce.com/s-m1rws/products/4447/images/8866/G2UAL402__87335.1504813557.900.600.jpg?c=2 The reason is that the tail as well as the three strip combo is very hard to create from scratch. But if I have a high resolution image like that, I can use the image as transparency and lay it onto the flat model. Sorry wrong quote, I meant Capt Korn Dog who is requesting the old blue tulip United Paint Scheme.
  9. Should we infer that the Professional Version of the Airbus Narrow Body bundle will install into the Prepar3D v4 Add-ons folder instead of the Prepar3d base folder like the current Bus?
  10. If possible, can you please show the Airbus' dynamic lights at night? Maybe a short video of take or landing rollout?
  11. I don't understand why Mr. Real World Airbus Pilot is so angry. If he has constructive suggestions, he can always email Mathijas personally. Heck, he can create an account and post here for all of the developers to see. You can't improve a product if you don't tell the developer what's wrong and offer suggestion. Finally, this business of pieces of paper is way overblown by the Facebook Poster. In my airline, we use ten inch IPads for EFB. I even have an IPAD mini for all of my Maintenance Manuals. But pilots till use paper releases, weather breathing and use the ACARS printer is extensively for enroute Meteor Data as well as routing information from Dispatch. BTW, Stefan's VC modelling of the paper attached with clip in the window frame trim is what I do often when I am preforming maintenance related engine runs.

    what is the most realistic turboprop for fsx SE

    For simplicity of flying and departing/landing into small airports the JS41 is the better aircraft. Also, Avsim has a huge number of JS41 repaints. Many more than the Q400. Finally, all of the PMDG kits are really easy to use for us re-painters, thus if you need a custom livery, it shouldn't be hard to find a painter.

    what is the most realistic turboprop for fsx SE

    The Majestic Q400. The very best in realism. Of course, it is so realistic that flying it with one person is very difficult. Another really good plane that deserves an honourable mention is the PMDG JS41. I am not sure if it is available for P3D yet, but in FSX it is an absolute joy to fly. Due to its smaller size it can get in into smaller fields as opposed to the Q400.
