simMarket dedicated its last newsletter issue to General Aviation aircraft, introducing helicopters and private aircraft, nice references beside some of the best and latest entries in their FS / X-Plane catalogue. Remember you can subscribe here to receive a weekly selection plus a monthly special theme as you can see in the Archives.

As previously reported, we got a little out of synch with Robert Graf’s progress through the DOM/GNL series of simulated NASCAR races using the iRacing simulator. Therefore rather than a single race report this time, he presents two, covering the round 6 race at Las Vegas and round 7 at Richmond. To read the two race reports, please click “Read More” below…

Please note that Thursday (26 Jan 2012) at 1600GMT, the simFlight forums will be going down for maintenance, including all support, as well as community, forums. We’ll return them to service as soon as practically possible, but please bear with us while we make the necessary changes and we’ll let you know once they are done.

Aerosoft’s 10th German Flight Simulator Conference will be held on 24th March 2012 at Flugwerft Oberschleißheim, near Munich, with part of the exhibition being held inside the museum itself. Since its origins in 2003, the show has grown in strength and support, with over 900 people visiting it at Paderborn Lippstadt last year. Adding to the grandeur this time, the annual “Captain’s Dinner” will take place in the castle at the museum, including the presentation of the annual simFlight Awards. For more details, please visit the Aerosoft show webpage, which can be found here.

It is with the greatest of regret that we have to pass on the news of the death of another member of the flight simming and development communities. Many of us will at least know of, if we have not communicated with, Sascha W. Felix who was one of the authors of the popular FS Commander product that offered flight planning and more for a number of flight simulators and add-ons. Sascha passed away on January 4th 2012 and will be missed by both the community and his friends and family. In this post on the FS Commander forum, announcing the passing of his…

Over at our German language sister site simFlight.de, Stefan Benzinger has posted a review of the Swiss flight simulator aeroflyFS, which we have mentioned a couple of times recently in news articles. We’ll try and get a good English translation of the review for you soon (I tried Google Translate earlier to read it myself and the results were… “interesting”), but in the interim, if your German is better than mine, or you’re prepared to risk the wrath of a translation program, the original review can be found at this link.

Earlier this week, simFlight were invited to a Flight event at Microsoft HQ in Redmond, USA, which was attended by Jorge Diogo from simFlight.pt. Although the content of the presentation and the surrounding sessions is not available for publication, we do know that further news will be forthcoming early in the new year. So we’re afraid that all the great mystery and speculation surrounding the upcoming title will be just that for at least the near future. Speaking as a trained first aider, I really wouldn’t recommend holding your breath for anything more; even with the best training in the…

We know from the feedback to the previous article that a number of people wanted to know how Robert Graf got on in the final race of his rookie season in the Deutsche Online Meisterschaft (DOM) series of iRacing… Well, in  his own words, the race didn’t quite go to plan, but unlike many of the field, we can tell you that Robert did actually finish the race at a virtual Phoenix International Raceway, last weekend. Whether you watched the race live or not (I’ll be honest, I didn’t – I was actually racing a Mazda MX5 in iRacing myself,…
