Exclusive Lugano Airport Impression

Lugano Airport, an impressive creation developed by FlyLogic, upgraded for X-Plane 11 by Omar Masroor and published by Aerosoft.

Curious how the updated X-Plane LSZA looks like and feels?
Then you must check out the following exclusive screenshots we’ve made for you. The Windows 10 screenshots are taken with the latest X-Plane 11 version (11.05) and use, besides a Carenado aircraft and the airport itself, xEnviro 1.07.

For those who aren’t familiar with LSZA, let’s have a closer look …. Lugano Airport (IATA: LUG, ICAO: LSZA) is a regional airport located 4 km (2.5 mi) west of the Swiss city of Lugano, approximately 80 km north of Milan, in the municipalities of Agno, Bioggio and Muzzano.

It lies closer to the village of Agno than to Lugano itself, and is sometimes known as Lugano-Agno. Around 200,000 passengers use the airport each year, using some 2,400 flights. There are also limited freight operations, a flying club and flight school. The headquarters of Darwin Airline are located at the airport. The airport is situated on land owned by the city of Lugano, whilst management is the responsibility of Lugano Airport SA, whose shares are owned by the canton of Ticino (12.5 percent) and the city (87.5 percent). The company has 73 employees, and an annual turnover of 10 million Swiss francs.

But what does it bring ….. ?
The updated airport for X-Plane 11 comes with a lot of bug fixes and a lot of improvements. For those who love to fly in the Swiss region, this is absolutely a worthy airport.

Exclusive Photo Impression “Wilson DC-8-71F”

Birth of a Jet

This screenshot impression has everything to do with a bit of history. Not just history, perhaps one of the change makers in aviation. It has everything to do with the Wilson Classic Aircraft Douglas Aircraft Company DC-8 Series.

Soon X-Plained.Com will publish a comprehensive review of the Wilson Classic Douglas DC-8 Series. The review deals with the X-Plane 11 DC-8 Series package. This means it deals with the -61, -63, -71 and -71F aircraft types. We’ll also discuss the use of xCIVA INS and some history. Was it worth the review, was it worth the time? I think it was, but first, we’re pleased to offer you some exclusive screenshots made on a flight from EHAM to LFBO.

Enjoy these screenshots.

Impression X-Plane 11 vFlyteAir Cirrus SR-20

Recently released by vFlyteAir, their updated Cirrus SR-20 version 2.5. Not only a fresh update, but fully compatible with X-Plane 11. A beauty to see, a beauty to fly!

The updated vFlyteAir Cirrus SR-20 comes with a lot of new features, of course partly because of the X-Plane 11 platform, but also new features added to the aircraft systems and if also comes with a lot of bug fixes.

Is it worth the aircraft, is it worth the Look and Feel?
We haven’t had yet the time to review it for you, but I think we will find a moment to do that and knowing vFlyteAir now for a while, I think it will be a beauty! What we offer now for you are some exclusive screenshots of the Cirrus SR-20 version 2.5.


Wilson’s Douglas DC-8-61 Impression

This screenshot impression has everything to do with a bit of history. Not just history, perhaps one of the change makers in aviation. It has everything to do with the Douglas Aircraft Company DC-8.

That said, we’re pleased to offer you some exclusive screenshots of the Michael Wilson Douglas DC-8-61 Series of his recent released X-pLane 11 package. The released package offers a bit more then only the DC-8-61 Series. I comes with the:
– DC-8-61 Series
– DC-8-63 Series
– DC-8-71 Series Passenger
– DC-8-71F Series Freighter

But for now, enjoy these screenshots and as promised to myself … a review is in the making. But why did I chose the DC-8 and not his B707? I was working in the aviation as a mechanic and while I was working on the old-fashioned DC-9-30, I’ve seen at Schiphol Airport many Douglas DC-8 aircraft, in particular from the KLM and some other companies. I was impressed by, for example, the length of the DC-8-63 – also included in the package – which was almost of the same size if the Douglas DC-10. During that time, I’ve seen more DC-8 aircraft then Boeing 707.

FunnerFlight KLAX v2 Impression
