Fancy a Quickie?!

139397_image001Before anyone starts contacting management about the headline, we should point out that the Quickie Q200 is a new fictional aircraft – based on the 1980s Q200 Dragonfly – from Lionheart Creations for FSX and P3D.

Designed as powered by a Continental O-200 engine, the Quickie has a cruise speed of 180mph, which you’ll find indicated on a ‘classic steam’, rather than modern glass, panel layout. It certainly is an eye-catching design, about which you can find more here, or you can read the developer’s press release by clicking “Read More“, below.

FSX Steam Edition available

That original release trailer is still really cheesy and inappropriate, but over ten years after the release of Flight Sim 2004 A Century of Flight, we’re announcing the release of Microsoft Flight Simulator X… Hang on… Haven’t we done this before?

Dovetail GamesFSX: Steam Edition is basically the same as FSX Gold (FSX + Acceleration), but with minor updates to allow it to work on newer Microsoft Operating Systems and new multiplayer functionality to replace the defunct GameSpy system. It’s also worth picking it up quickly if you are going to, seeing as for the next 2 days (46 hours at the time of writing), it is available for 80% off. You can find it on Steam, here.

Aerosoft CRJ VC – more updated screenshots


We last mentioned the Aerosoft/Digital Aviation Canadair Regional Jet – somewhat fittingly regarding the VC – in June this year. It’s one of those projects that has been going for so long that many people have either forgotten about it, or given up on it ever appearing.

Aerosoft haven’t forgotten, however, and earlier this week, Mathijs Kok posted three new images including the one above, showing progress in bringing what has already been done up to current standards. If you read the thread, here, you’ll find that while there are still many “issues” being found and fixed, the team and testers are happy with the progress being made – and yes, they know that Mathijs didn’t set up the aircraft properly before taking the screenshots (check the PFD… ;))
