Aerosoft NavDataPro AIRAC Cycle 1810

Aerosoft released on September 13th  a new AIRAC Cycle 1810 for their NavDataPro.

For operationally significant changes in information, the cycle known as the AIRAC (Aeronautical Information Regulation And Control) cycle is used: revisions are produced every 56 days (double AIRAC cycle) or every 28 days (single AIRAC cycle).

NavDataPro users are now able to download and install the datasets for X-Plane. NavDataPro is our new update service for navigational data used by various simulatorsWith this service flight sim pilots will always get up-to-date navdata for flight planning and in flight use.

More information can be found at the dedicated Aerosoft web page.

Navigraph AIRAC Cycle 1810

Another Navigraph AIRAC (Aeronautical Information Regulation And Control) period starting on September 13th, 2018. Let’s give some background information about the AIRAC Cycle.

The AIRAC cycle was adopted in 1964 and further improved over the years. Key are the worldwide effective dates with 28 days intervals (e.g. 4 August 2005, 1 September 2005, 29 September 2005, …). Effective days are always on a Thursday. It may look indeed like a long period, 28 days, or even 56, but it should be understood that aeronautical information changes, mostly published through so called AIRAC Amendments.

Back to our Navigraph Cycle 1810, effective from September 13th. By following this link you reach the download section of Navigraph.

Out of the Office

It’s time to leave the X-Plained.Com office what it is. t’s time for another holiday.

Your personal reporter Angelique van Campen takes, after she finally finished the FlyJSim 727 Professional v3 review, a couple of weeks off. Till a certain extend, she will maintain the X-Plained.Com, but no downloads or finished reviews are added during these four weeks. Lucky for her that she sold her MacBook Pro and only has got a iPad Pro with her. Although she can do a lot with this iPad Pro, adding reviews and news items isn’t really possible.

Suppose you’re new to X-Plained.com, and you do a registration request, keep in mind that this can take up to 12 hours before she replies. Holiday is holiday time!

When everything goes according to plan, she’s driving and visiting places like Guernsey, Jersey, Brest, Nantes and so on. In other words, she’s visiting Normandy and Bretagne, the Western regions of France. The weather forecast is good, so off she goes!

Speak you soon!

X-Plane 11 Embraer EMB-110 Review

Your personal reporter and enthusiastic reviewer Angelique van Campen flies the DreamFoil Creations “Embraer EMB-110 for X-Plane 11” and comes to one conclusion, a very nice and well-modeled GA/commuter aircraft.

Angelique thinks that “This is another interesting addition to the X-Plane aircraft fleet. I’m aware that it becomes a bit crowded with all kind of these twin engines GA aircraft on the X-Plane 11 market. Carenado has got a few, vFlytAir has got one, Alabeo has got one, and so on. Neither less, I was impressed with the DreamFoil model for X-Plane 10, so it is logical that I like it still while being updated for X-Plane 11 with a couple of new features and a couple of nice implemented modifications.

The operations manual is – in my view – very colorful but the majority of things you need to know are there. The EMB-110 is nicely modelled externally and internally which was already the same for the X-Plane 10 model. The exterior has many tiny details, as well as the virtual cabin and 3D cockpit. I sincerely hope painters will take the time and effort to provide some more liveries. The current default liveries are nice, but the model deserves more.”

You want to know al about it …. then you must read her comprehensive Bandit review.

FlyJSim 727 Series v3 “Atarium” Liveries

On behalf of X-Plane.Org user Atarium, we’re pleased to inform you that we’re approved to offer his FlyJSim 727 version 3 liveries.

According to Atarium “This is one of my liveries for the wonderful B727-100 V3 made by Flyjsim.

Some additional words about this beauty … the versatility and reliability of the Boeing 727 — the first trijet introduced into commercial service — made it the best-selling airliner in the world during the first 30 years of jet transport service. The jet age essentially began in 1952 with the introduction of the British-designed de Havilland Comet. Several jetliners, including the Boeing 707, were developed before the 727, but none came close to its sales record.

Back to Atarium …. if there are any mistakes, don´t hesitate to contact me. Enjoy my livery. Visit my X-Plane.Org profile profile for more liveries! [ A320 Ultimate ; B737-800 Zibo/Default ; A320 and A330 Jardesign ; B737-300 IXEG ; B767-300 FF ; Tu-154M by felis ; E175 X-Craft ; AN24RV by felis ; MD80 Rotatesim ]
