Aerosoft NavDataPro AIRAC Cycle 2014

Aerosoft released on December 31st a new AIRAC Cycle 2014 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 2014

Another Navigraph AIRAC (Aeronautical Information Regulation And Control) period starting on December 31st, 2020. 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 2014, effective from December 31st. By following this link you reach the download section of Navigraph.

Ho Ho Ho …. A Merry Merry Christmas to All

On behalf of the whole X-Plained.Com team, we would like to wish everybody a Merry Christmas!

2020 isn’t yet finished, I’m aware of that. Let’s hope we will never face such a disaster for all of us again. With lockdowns in many countries around the world we kept on doing our work and we will continue down this way.

With still a couple of days to go, and then, it’s already 2021! But for now, let us first enjoy Christmas Eve and for some of us, also the days ahead. I’m pleased to say that the X-Plained team is growing and growing. Many thanks to Andy Clarke and Bruce Knight who do a terrific job with their reviews and not to forget your personal reporter Angelique van Campen.

I feel there’s a need I need to do it …. special wishes go to Marc Leydecker (some of you know Marc as Belga12345), our scenery and software/hardware specialist. From myself and Ingrid …..”Marc, I know you much better now and I sincerely hope you will soon be better.”

It also gives me the possibility to thank all our advertisers (JARDesignX-Plane.ComX-Plane.OrgSimWare SimulationsAerosoft), and the many donations we’ve received, the moment we added the Support Us button to the website. With these donations we’re able to pay our yearly bill to continue with X-Plained.Com, but also to improve our site with payware plugins needed to have a stable and fast X-Plained.

Homer Jay ToLiss A321 Neo Liveries

X-Plained.Com is pleased to announce, in consult with and the approval of X-Plane.Org user Homer Jay, that we’ve decided to promote several of his ToLiss A321 NEO liveries.

The Toliss NEO add-on comes with 2 additional engine types for the ToLiss A321. The 3 subvariants of the A321 NEO family are the NEO, the LR and the XLR. Additionally it comes with 3 new exit configurations aligned with the Airbus Cabin Flex concept for the A321 family.

The included new engine types re the CFM LEAP-1A33 and PW1130G-JM. Overall package includes an accurate aircraft climb performance as function of engine selection. Appropriate fuel burn as function of engine selection. System adaptation to reflect new engine functionalities, such as PW engine cooling cycles. Further on it comes with detailed 3d model for each engine model, specific TSS sound sets for each engine type, A321 NEO subvariants, configurable to A321 NEO, LR and XLR, a fuel system adapted to the individual configurations, specific weight envelopes for each subvariant and finally, system specific changes per subvariant, e.g. single slotted flaps for the A321 XLR with improved aircraft drag.

All together a worthy add-on aircraft that needs hi-quality liveries. Although many liveries popup every day, we’ve found it a good idea to highlight some of the liveries provided by ToLiss stock painters. These download pages offer you one of Homer Jay A321 and NEO liveries. Feel free to download Homer Jay livery, but remember, you need to be a registered member of X-Plained.Com else you aren’t entitled to download his livery. You can find his liveries under menu Downloads – Liveries – NEO Add-On ToLiss Airbus A321 – Homer Jay.

FlyWithLua NG Updated to v2.7.28

Our Update December 24th, 2020 | Official FlyWithLua NG X-Plane 11 version 2.7.28

At X-Plained we’re very pleased to inform you that, in consult with X-Friese, we are able to offer you his latest FlyWithLua NG (Next Generation) for X-Plane 11 plugin from X-Friese. As X-Friese is always saying ….. the FlyWithLua story is going on!

This is the official brand version of FlyWithLua NG for X-Plane 11, and, the same as for the previous version, it will no longer support X-Plane 10 or X-Plane 9. All X-Plane 9 users (are there any out there?) must stay at FlyWithLua 2.4.x and follow the instructions to convert FlyWithLua 2.4.x into X-Plane 9 mode.

Going forward NG will be the only developed FlyWithLua version. Support will generally be a community effort. And of course the official brand new version of FlyWithLua NG is running on all three platforms, Linux, Mac OS X and Windows. Thanks a lot to Sparker for making this possible. Without him, FlyWithLua would be a Windows plugin only.

You can grab your personal copy via this download page, but you need to be a registered simmers to be able to download it.
