We have Two New Missions

 

 

USCG WINTER ROUND-ROBIN NORTHEAST

 

We have a USCG Round-Robin submitted by Tim Knight.  This was originally created as a Fall Mission.  (Sorry, the delay was my fault.  Monty)


Purpose: Transport military personnel and equipment to assist with safety/training exercises.  

 

 

TOYS FOR TOTS 2019

 

We also have a Christmas mission submitted by Bill Eblin.  It is a 19 leg Toys For Tots 2019 mission to locations in Japan and South Korea.  

 

 

SIGN UP INFO:

Flight Simulator 2020

Posted by Monty Roberts on 12/04/2019

 


So far, Microsoft has released six Flight Simulator 2020 videos on YouTube.  I thought I would just post the links to them so you can see some of the amazing footage from the next generation of Microsoft Flight Simulator.  Map data is coming from Bing Maps!  It is due to be released sometime in 2020.  This is going to be amazing!

New Microsoft Flight Simulator

Posted by Monty Roberts on 11/12/2019


I have had my head buried in two personal projects for the last few months.  So, I was stunned when I came across the following news story! 

 

On June 23, Microsoft announced that they will release a new version of Microsoft Flight Simulator sometime in 2020.  I found out about it this evening when I watched a YouTube video titled: “Microsoft Flight Simulator In-Depth Preview (4K)”. 

 

According to the reviewer in the video, the new version is based on FSX, and will have a map accuracy of centimeters.  To illustrate the accuracy of the map, he said that he was able to fly over his own house in the sim.  

 

Here is the YouTube link for the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOPIjzzH1G8

 

If you have comments, updates, or related video links please post them on the Forum in the Discussions section.
