Aerosoft NavDataPro AIRAC Cycle 2001

Aerosoft released on January 2nd a new AIRAC Cycle 2001 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 2001

Another Navigraph AIRAC (Aeronautical Information Regulation And Control) period starting on January 2nd, 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 2001, effective from January 2nd. By following this link you reach the download section of Navigraph.

FlyWithLua NG updated to 2.7.22

Our Update December 26th, 2019 | Official FlyWithLua NG (Next Generation) X-Plane 11 version 2.7.22

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 new 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.

SketchUp Custom Lights “SPILL”

What the heck is this .. custom lights, if applicable for you. We’re pleased to offer you this short but effective tutorial, written by Marc Leydecker a.k.a. Belga123245.

Custom Lights (LIGHT_CUSTOM & LIGHT_SPILL_CUSTOM)
We all use lights in our sceneries and without lights our airport landscapes would have no character especially at night, isn’t as easy as you think unless, you know how to do it. And because of this, Marc Leydecker, known from his fabulous high quality Virginia airports, has been written a tutorial for our registered users.

And, as always from Marc, a short, but effective tutorial based on those who love to create airports and additional objects who use SketchUp as there primary 3D tool.

Curious?
Feel free to download this tutorial from Marc and please leave a message or comment for Marc and remember, the download section is only available for registered X-Plained.Com users. For those who found that weird, it’s on request of our developers and normal that whatever kind of stuff we offer, that it’s only for free when registered.
