CRH380D High Speed Train Chengdu-Suining High Speed Route

NEW HIGH SPEED CHINESE LOCO - AND THE IDEAL ROUTE FOR IT!

Rail drivers with a taste for speed will enjoy a new Chinese locomotive for TS2014 and also a route which is perfect for driving it - both have gone on sale today and are available individually or together in one money-saving Bundle.

Capable of running at 380km/h, the CRH380D is one of the fastest production trains in the world. It uses state-of-the-art flat-screen glass panels in the driver's cab to display train information and signal data and can be driven manually or by using the on-board computers.

The CRH380D has been developed to interact with the CTCS-3 (China Train Control System) signalling system included in the 146km Chengdu-Suining High Speed Route, so the route is perfectly equipped for this sleek and speedy modern loco. Also supplied with the route is a CRH1A EMU that is designed for commuter use and is also equipped with the CTCS-3 system - it's no slouch, but it will let you catch your breath after the CRH380D and give you a bit more time to appreciate the scenery and the detailed stations along the route!

Alabeo C195 Businessliner

ALABEO'S STYLISH CLASSIC FOR FSX/P3D

The latest Alabeo aircraft for FSX and P3D was released shortly after our March Newsletter went out and is a wonderfully stylish machine - we'd agree wholeheartedly with the comment on the ClassicAircraft.com website which describes the plane as "one of the finest classics ever built."

The C195 Businessliner dates back to the late 1940s and Alabeo's rendition of this all-aluminium radial-engined aircraft features top quality 3D modelling and exceptional texture reflection and shine effects. The Download is on sale now, priced at £13.99 / €17.30 / $22.95.

Also new from Alabeo and on sale by Download is the R66 Turbine Helicopter for X-Plane which has proved very popular in its FSX/P3D incarnation since its release last November.

RAZBAM'S MARVELLOUS METROLINER FOR FSX AND P3D

The RAZBAM crew might be better known for their military planes but they can clearly turn their skills equally well to the development of civil aircraft, as we've seen this month with the release of their new Fairchild SA-227-BC Metroliner.

Their new collection features five models of this twin-turboprop 19-seat airliner in 17 civil and military paint schemes. The flight deck is complete with an extensive array of accurate cockpit systems which include weather radar, AFCS, EHSI, passenger and cargo load manager, GPS, authentic cockpit lighting and detailed electrical and hydraulic systems and panels.

Three versions of the Metroliner are available - for FSX, for Prepar3D v1/v2, and also a combined FSX/P3D version. All are now on sale by Download.

NIGHT TIME NAVIGATION IN THE UK AND GERMANY

If you enjoy night flying but would appreciate improved lighting on the terrain below you is concerned, you'll definitely notice the difference with Aerosoft's Night Environment add-ons for FSX installed. There are versions for the British Isles and for Germany, both of which provide additional and much more realistic lighting on both major and minor roads – and even adds more roads than exist by default in FSX.

Both the Night Environment packages are compatible with all photorealistic scenery and third party add-ons and the software can be configured to suit your PC's capabilities.

Mega Airport Berlin-Brandenburg Mega Airport Berlin-Brandenburg

FLY INTO THE FUTURE IN THE GERMAN CAPITAL!

As we all know, there are more than a few areas in which virtual aviation can trump the real thing, and being able to fly into Berlin's new Brandenburg airport well ahead of its opening is certainly one of them. The new airport is being built to take over from the existing Schönefeld and Tegel airports, but is several years behind schedule and unlikely to open before 2016.

Virtual pilots, however, can already get their wheels down at the new airport thanks to the newly released and highly detailed Mega Airport Berlin scenery package for FSX and P3D, which also includes a current version of Schönefeld. See the website for more screenshots and full details!
