  1. We hope that everyone had an enjoyable Christmas, and that Santa was good to all that were deserving of their hard word and good deeds. That being said....... Welcome to 2020, we are several days into the new year and it's looking like "Flight Simulation" has a lot in store for us. For those of us who can think/remember way back when ATP by SubLogic, FS95, 98, 2002, 2004 & FSX, ProFlight by Sierra, and a few more were the next best thing to slice bread during its time. We have spent hundreds and or even thousands on this hobby for which most of our spouses/significant others think we are crazy or maybe just from another dimension of abnormal people. So this month its going to be a sort of anything goes......BUT it MUST be of a newly purchased or gifted add-on (aircraft, scenery, and hardware) that you acquired over the holiday season. I'll even allow real pictures of hardware...BUT it must be displayed within your simulator environment being used.

Users are allowed to change their posted image up until the time frame allowing you to do so expires. If you fail to post an image based on the theme of the month, it is very likely that the image will not be considered during "judgment day". This a multi-sim platform for your images as we also welcome X-Plane, DCS, Infinite Flight and even AeroFly images.
  2. Well its that time of year again and the jolly guy in the North Pole needs assistance getting his product out and around the world. While your sleigh does not have to have anything festive on it, it may be helpful in determining who the winner of this month's contest will be. There are several new Aerosoft titles that have been released for the winning. Good Luck to ALL.

  3. Congratulations on winning November's screenshot contest. awesome shot portraying the departure, especially with the city being lit in the background. Email to follow shortly.
  4. Congratulations on winning October's screenshot contest, although the simulation platform does not really portray the way that the light would have impacted the visibility in the flight deck it is still an impressive capture. Email to follow shortly.
  5. Congratulations on winning September's screenshot contest. Definitely an action shot, I like the fact that a high shutter speed was not used to freeze the frame allowing for one to see the props in action. Email to follow shortly.
  6. @iLuvKoreanGirls Awesome shots, unfortunately, only the first image will be accepted, and all others deleted.
  7. This month we'll take a break from the SOMETHING theme and hit everyone's favorite ANYTHING GOES theme. Turbine Power - ORBX's S43 Pilatus PC-6 Gear Up - Departing LOWI PMDG T7 - Pushing from G8 at KMSP PMDG B738 - Rough ride into KJFK PMDG 744 - Majestic Glory PMDG 744 - Taxiing to hold short Carenado Phenom 100 Aerosoft's CRJ - Day Flight Deck Aerosoft's CRJ - Night Flight Deck Good Luck to ALL.

  8. With the many add-ons on the market that bring your simulators to life, I don't recall doing a Sunrise/Sunset theme for the year, so this month let's get some early morning and or dusk/sunset flying in and show some of the stunning scenes that you simulator is capable of rendering. Evening Cruise over Orland, FL - RealAir Legacy Gear Down into Vigie, TLPC - Carenado Phenom 300 Blasting out of LOWI - Aerosoft's A320 Professional Go-around in CLT RW 05 - Aerosoft's CRJ Cruising in the golden dusk - Flight1's KA-B200 Final Approach into LDDU - AS A320 Departing RW 28R Portland International - Quality Wing's 787 Good Luck to ALL.

  9. And the winner of the August Screenshot contest in Nilo4 - Congratulations!! Well framed shot, with a low pass over the field while making shallow bank to the left - not the best atmosphere for an airshow Email to follow shortly
  10. It does not matter, any real photo that you have taken that fits the criteria of the contest is always welcome.
  11. Well its another month for you to do your thing - but this time we are going outside the scope of SIMULATION, and for the first time we are going to give real world shots of aircraft a go (thanks CA Picaso). However, It must be an action shot of some sort AND it must be a photo that YOU OWN. If it is well received we may add this to the list of genres for the competitions in the future.

  12. General Aviation as we know it is part of the skeletal backbone within the aviation industry, as it encompasses some avenues without imposing too many restrictions that 121 Commercial and 135 Charter flying do: 1. Flight Training, Recreation flying, Bush and Cargo (non- Part 135) Ops are a few areas in which we se a strong presence of General Aviation. Let's see your General Aviation spirit for this month's contest.

  13. Well the the results are in!! This month we congratulate Elly Beinhorn on winning July's screenshot contest. This epic capture shows a true STOL workhorse plastered against an impressive Aurora background. Email to follow shortly.
  14. The concept I will agree is an interesting one, but as mentioned by both Mathijs and Dave will require some additional work on the back-end which will cause additional development time which may be a wasted effort in that most simmers do not want to be bothered by nuances of system failures in flight. Granted there are many complex aircraft available that would have this capability of providing some sort of initiated failure log......BUT...... The majority of the failures that are encountered on a flight deck can be addressed with the QRH and will allow the crew to get the aircraft to the final destination, suitable airport or even returning to the field with the most critical part being having to declare an emergency to gain priority handling to the field. Most crashes which initially have some sort of failure are usually the result of human error due to not following or not executing proper procedures. The most probable way for one to get a feel for what may have transpired prior to the crash would be to pull data normally written to the FDR, and listen to the CVR if one is available. In the SIM CVR capability is practically unavailable unless the flight is being recorded via a stream or there would have to a recording tool running alongside this program. FDR acquisition can be a very tedious feat as the real aircraft FDR records several thousand variables based on the parameters chosen to be recorded. There is at least one aircraft that I know of but there could be others as well that will be able to provide FDR data, and even has the capability of using real world data depending on the format to recreate events. This feature may not be an attraction to most simmers as it is not a cheap feature and more of an "option" for the TRAINING Editions for that given aircraft. This tool you think/speak of would be advantageous more so if it pulled common parameters from all aircraft within the simulation platform and provided the most likely reason for the crash, but again the key question is - would it be worth the development time. Virtual airlines may see some benefit to keep a tab on how their pilots are flying their routes and flying by the company SOPs. Cheers
