Project Airbus Finds the Middle with An A330

Project Airbus shook the virtual skies with their A320 family of models for flight simulator.  They shook the skies a bit more (luckily no birds fell from the sky) when they released the flying whale, the A380.   Each release represented a new standard of detail and new drool on the keyboard.

With the little guy (A318) and the whale (A380) awaiting download, the middle is left wide open.  But the Project Airbus team is looking to fill the spot with a new A330 model that is rumored to be in the works.  Head over to their forums and check out some of the screenshots they are teasing us virtual pilots with.


RealAir’s Legacy Comes Alive

The Lancair Legacy is an exciting aircraft.  The two seat, composite aircraft features a 310 hp Continental motor wrapped in a sleek skin that screams SPORT, all of which provide a truly unique flight experience.  Since Fs2000, the Legacy has been available as a mediocre freeware add-on that was begging to get a refresh by a talented modeler.

Thanks to RealAir Simulations, the Legacy reaches the level it deserves in FSX.  A fully featured add-on with nearly 100 custom sounds, 2048p HD textures, and “best of business flight modeling,” this model is a must for any sport pilot.  All of the detail and features do come at a price, though.  At $47 US, this is definitely pushing the high end of add-on budgets to a new high.

If you have any experience with RealAir’s Duke or Turbine Duke, you know this Lancair Legacy is going to scream through the virtual skies of FSX! Go get it!

The gorgeous lines and visual details compliment the realism in this truly awesome model.

Update 02jun12: After a few test flights, the RealAir Legacy represents an experience like no other.  A full review is coming soon…
