Navigraph AIRAC Cycle 1805

Another Navigraph AIRAC (Aeronautical Information Regulation And Control) period starting on April 26th, 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 1805, effective from April 26th. By following this link you reach the download section of Navigraph.

Quick Look and Feel Flight Factor A320

While your personal reporter Angelique van Campen had been very busy with reviewing the Flight Factor A320, Andy Clarke has been busy too with reviewing his part of the aircraft. Soon, very soon, we’re pleased to offer you a comprehensive review of the Flight Factor A320 Ultimate.

It was a lot of work, a lot of things we needed to find out. This is partly because of the minimum amount of documentation. Although I have enough experience, a complex aircraft as this A320 is “then” even for me not easy to figure out all the features and how things are made or modeled. For some parts we needed to contact some real licensed pilots, but I can tell you that the end result is a well balanced review.

But for now, I would say … enjoy these exclusive screenshots made on a typical flight from LFBO, heading for the Pyrenees. When you feel do to so, a comment and/or suggestion is always welcome.

Additional JARDesign A330 v3 Info

On behalf of Evgeny Romanov, lead developer of JAR Design Group, I would like to share with you some notes we received from him in respect to the A330 v3 review.

According to Evgeny “I would like to highlight a couple of interesting items for the simmer. Let me point them out to you as well as some screenshots. The screenshot below each text block deals with this text block.”

This additional post/page belongs to a worthy page full with A330 v3 information, but it can’t be seen without reading Andy Clarkes in-depth review. The additional page with JASR Design information can be found via this link and Andy’s review is available via this link.

JARDesign A330 v3 Review

You’ve waited long for this, we’ve all waited for this as well as your dedicated X-Plained reporter/reviewer Andy Clarke. Andy took a look into the JARDesign A330 version 3. Not just “a” look, a thorough look to be honest on how this renewed X-Plane 11 aircraft works, flies and how the completely remade MCDU is functioning.

According to Andy “This is a very impressive model created with a high level of detail. The exterior and interior are extremely realistic with a quality sound package backing up the graphics. I do feel that the package may well benefit from a bespoke manual and documentation, explaining the model, as this would make the developer’s efforts more accessible to the less experienced user and would not leave any user wondering whether or not they have used and employed every aspect of what is provided.”

But Andy has so much more to say. I would say on behalf of Andy …. check out his in-depth JARDesign A330 v3 review. Enjoy the ride!
