  1. 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. (I am on the road at the moment so unable to post some of my images). As Always - All participants are ONLY allowed 1 image if you post more than one - ONLY the first entry will be judged and the others deleted. 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". I am not sure if many of you are aware but this a multi-sim platform for your images as we also welcome X-Plane, DCS, Infinite Flight and even AeroFly images.
  2. 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.

  3. 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
  4. It does not matter, any real photo that you have taken that fits the criteria of the contest is always welcome.
  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Thanks My friend, I have a simple i7 8700k with a 1080Ti (but sometimes use my i7 2700k with a 980Ti) running at stock (not a big fan of overclocking). I do however run this baby at 3840x2160 4k, nothing else special. I do however may drop the images in a photo editor to darken or brighten the image as some platforms may tend to over/under expose the atmosphere. That being said I enjoy the images that you put forth as yourself and @edetroit keep the FSX and FS2004 platforms alive
  10. My sincerest apologies to everyone for the suspense regarding May's winner.......The creativity displayed by All participants certainly made May's judging process really challenging as all entries had unique scenes, angles and scenery. Congratulations to Nono1 for winning May's screenshot contest. While this may seem like a simple shot, it shows a flight deck that is powered and awaiting the crew to get settled in for the start of a trip or what may have been a turn. The FO's FMC is untouched, as he may be completing the walk around while enjoying the cup of coffee that he mentioned while the CA may be still in the Ops center gathering final details of the from his Dispatcher OR he could be flirting the new hot flight attendant in the galley. The ramp however appears lifeless so it could be that the crew is required to reposition the aircraft to a gate/stand before things start coming to life. So many scenarios could be applied. Cheers....Email to follow shortly
  11. Well folks as the header states - still following the SOMETHING theme - shows us anything STOL (short takeoff and landing) capable. As always creativity goes a long way. It would also be good for participants to give a little background info regarding the image being posted, i.e. departure airport, type aircraft (if not common), and maybe what the image is attempting to portray.

  12. Some stunning shots, most of which bring back memories of my flying days in the Caribbean, especially this months winner. HeliFan123, this was an epic capture and the scenery which I assume is XP11 brings the shot to life. Congratulations, email to follow shortly.
