The Prepar3D team is continued to be impressed by all the major recent airport developments by third party developers using our SDK. We’d like to showcase a great example from PILOT’s and their Almeria airport scenery add-on. Take off from scenic southeast Spain with PILOT’S Almeria airport scenery. Winner of the Mutley’s Hangar Gold Award, this popular holiday destination is brought to life with highly-detailed updates to the airport as well as the surrounding scenery. The possibilities are endless in Prepar3D with our recent enhancements provided in Prepar3D v4.3. For more information visit https://www.pilots.shop
Prepar3D v4.3 is available now! The next update for Prepar3D v4 is here! Prepar3D v4.3 takes simulation to the next level offering new features including interactive panel windows in virtual reality (VR), improved scenery dynamic lighting performance, several new C-130 user-selectable aircraft, as well as numerous user interface (UI) enhancements, various stability and performance improvements, multiple bug fixes, and much more. In addition to the numerous core features and enhancements, Prepar3D’s open development architecure keeps expanding with multiple new updates to the Software Development Kit (SDK).

FSFlyingSchool PRO 2018 is now available for Prepar3D v4. FSFlyingSchool’s AI instructors give instant interactive instruction to pilots on any flight, in any airplane, anywhere in the world. The instructors watch and comment on over 70 different areas of airmanship and maintain full pilot logs of each flight. These logs can then be analyzed by the pilot to identify potential issues. The chief instructor will also watch and give instruction on other ground and air traffic, taxiways at the current airfield, and weather conditions. Pilots can even talk to the instructor getting helpful information and advice on demand. “On Approach”
Prepar3D v4.2 is available now! Prepar3D v4.2 continues to improve on the groundbreaking Prepar3D v4 simulation platform. The new v4.2 release welcomes three new user controllable helicopters, new rendering techniques for improved virtual reality (VR) performance, countless legacy bug fixes, and even a couple new exciting experimental features to give users a feel of where the platform is heading! This is the first release to feature new helicopter capabilities, including scenario controllable artificial intelligence (AI) and autopilot functionality. Additionally, many developer requests were addressed, and we look forward to the Prepar3D ecosystem continuing to create high-end content that pushes simulation
More than 30 flight simulation developers—including Prepar3D—have made an initial commitment to attending FlightSimExpo, North America’s community-driven flight simulation conference. The event takes place at Flamingo Las Vegas Resort on June 9-10, 2018. The event consists of both a tradeshow floor and a conference room. FlightSimExpo 2018 will feature a variety of interactive exhibits, and a host of educational and informative seminars from professionals across the aviation and flight simulation industries. In addition, there will be social events after conference hours for networking and connecting with other simulation enthusiasts, aviation professionals, and developers from across the simulation industry.
