Aerobatic and agricultural aircraft designers Alabeo have announced support for Lockheed Martin’s Prepar3D simulator as standard within their installers. According to a Press Release received today, all of the previously FSX-only installers have been updated, so if you are a previous customer who purchased through simMarket, simply log into your account and redownload to get new installers that will work with both platform. Please note, however, that no other updates are stated as included, so if you don’t need P3D installation sets, you don’t need to redownload.

Therefore, if you are a P3D pilot who would like to fly in this stylish five-seat postwar business aircraft, take a look here.

In addition to the detailed airport, ground textures and animations (which do mean that the scenery is not compatible with DX10 preview in FSX), the packages come with several versions of the AFD files, allowing for operation with the requirement of different add-ons, compatibility with Aerosoft’s AES and, in the FSX/P3D version, additional AI aircraft and a flyable A319, using the default FSX A321’s VC. This precis obviously doesn’t cover all the features of the scenery, so…

Bear Studios have released the latest incarnation of their Eastern fighter fleet through simMarket in the form of the Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-17 jet fighter for Microsoft FS2004, FSX and Lockheed-Martin Prepar3D. This cold war warrior was, although technically inferior to Western aircraft in the period, something of a wake-up call when encountered over the skies of Vietnam, it being US losses of Mach2+ aircraft to the firmly subsonic MiG-17 that led to the introduction of “Aggressor” squadrons flying the A-4 Skyhawk to simulate the turning ability of the MiG17. Bear’s package includes individual models for FS9 and FSX/P3D, in a total…
