In a newsletter issued today, Navigraph have announced support for two additional packages as part of their subscription Navdata offerings.
The two new packages – the iFLY Boeing 747-400 and FSiPanel – are supported effective immediately and users can download updated data for them using either the FMS Data Manager or manual installation download methods.
Navigraph coupons, topping up credits used to access the service, can be purchased at simMarket.
Billed as being the publisher’s “final airport Blu-ray release”, JustPlanes have chosen this time to cover New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK/KJFK) for four and a half hours of footage.
“JFK is a paradise for the widebody lovers with tons and tons of A380s, B747s, B777s, B787s and other big birds. It still has a great amount of 747 activity and our 4h30min program features more than 100 airlines and 300 takeoffs & landings… a very fitting way of ending the Airport Blu-ray series.”

Pilots flying over Europe’s Iberian peninsular (Spain and Portugal) in FSX and P3D are probably aware that the default scenery is a little… flat? Yes, there are terrain features, but like most of the globe, they’re rather reduced in scale and effect by the low quality mesh delivered by the base package.
Enter FSSIMVFR at this point, who have today published a new mesh at a very high resolution of 4.75m with Iberian Peninsular Mesh X – available here at simMarket, which not only includes the two countries that make up Iberia, but also the Canary Islands, Balearic Islands, Madeira and Azores.
The product page includes a number of animated GIF images, like the one above, to show the difference between default and the add-on meshes, which are well worth taking a look at.
The real airport may currently be closed to commercial operators, with discussions ongoing regarding its future after the operator went into liquidation, but sim pilots at least can continue to use Blackpool International (BLK/EGNH) to its full capabilities, with the release of VFR Blackpool from RJ Sim for FSX and P3D.
Designed to compliment photoscenery, VFR Blackpool also works with landclass sceneries such as the default, or Orbx FTX offerings, as can be seen above. The product includes all major features of the airport and also local landmarks such as the Blackpool Tower and Big One rollercoaster, plus the adjacent trading estate.

It only seems like five minutes since the Accu-Sim C182 Skylane was released, but A2A Simulations have already patched a couple of holes, tweaked code, removed some unnecessary files and even made it go a little quicker… when using the manual handling mode, that is.
Posted on this thread at their forums is the latest core update for Accu-Sim which, although it only specifically updates the C182 this time, scans for and checks the update status of all your installed Accu-Sim add-ons in either FSX or P3D, so whether you are a virtual Skylane pilot or not, it’s worth downloading and running the tool to check your A2A aircraft are up-to-date.
