Navigraph AIRAC Cycle 2109

Another Navigraph AIRAC (Aeronautical Information Regulation And Control) period starting on September 9th, 2021. 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.

Registration Disabled!

Registration is temporarily unavailable.

I, your personal reporter Angelique van Campen apologise for any inconvenience. Last week was a crazy week in respect to X-Plained.Com. Although worldwide complex and bruce force attacks are high according to Wordfence, I had this time a guy who tried via many illegal ways to get an account or to try to break in. He didn’t succeed in that, but he even went so far that he decided to call me on my handy number. How crazy can you be! Blocking his number was easy, but doing it this way leaves for me no other option then for the time being “stop with any new registrations”. How sad it is for all those “serious” persons, I still have the contact form, so there’s stil la way to communicate with the outside world.

But all those who have already a registration and thus an account with us, will still have access to all our downloads and coming updated packages and will be helped. We regret that we had to take this decision to disable new registrations, but it seems too many people and bots are not interested in X-Plained.Com, but only in breaking down our website.

As said before, you can still use the contact form for any other questions, thoughts or suggestions, but not for requesting a new account. New account requests are, keep that in mind, not answered.

Thank You for your understanding.

On Behalf of the whole X-Plained.Com team,
Angelique van Campen

FlyWithLua Updated to v.2.7.30

Our Update August 16th, 2020 | Official FlyWithLua NG X-Plane 11 version 2.7.30

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.

JARDesign A340-500 Released

We needed to wait a while, but finally JARDesign has released their A340-500 for X-Plane 11. Who doesn’t know JARDesign? Known from the A320NEO, then the A330 and now logically the A340-500.

The A340-500 uses also GHD (Ground Handling) which is free in combination with the 340-500. It’s a gorgeous model created by the JARDesign team and for those who like to fly very, no ultra long distances, this is the absolute record. Not only that JARDesign aircraft are known about the way they are made, and the way you can fly them. Eye for many tiny details, but also trying to keep the FPS (Frames Per Second) as high as possible and still trying to model every system as in real. According to Evgeny “We tried to make the system as close as possible to the real and emulate the most of the aircraft systems. But in some systems we have used a number of simplifications. In other words, no 100% guarantees of compliance to the real world prototype.”

Want to know more about the JARDesign A340-500? Then you can check out the JARDesign A340 forum or the sales Org page.
