Bush Flying

I just saw a mention on Facebook from my friend, Flight1 staffer Jeff Smith. Looks like they've released their Cessna 162 Skycatcher for free. Jeff pointed out that it's a great complement to our Heron's Nest 2.0 scenery. More info on the free Skycatcher here: http://www.flight1.com/view.asp?page=skycatcher And of course for your copy of the Heron's Nest [...]

Beta Testers Wanted

In the last Heron's Nest update, I said all that was left was to add a staircase from the top of the island leading down to the float hangar. So, here you go... With that out of the way, it's time to move on to testing. I'm looking for about 5 testers to check out [...]

Your Own Private Island – Free!

At the recent FlightSimCon, we announced the upcoming release of iBlueYonder's first branded scenery package. Fans of our Cushman Meadows/Bear Gulch scenery (done a while back for Orbx) know that from time to time, we like to play around with "what-if" scenarios for private bush airports.

Fanboy Friday: Fabulous Freebies!

I talk about a lot of payware add-ons on this blog. Mostly that's because of the amazing variety of top-notch work available from so many talented devs. Even though they're great, you could drain your bank account pretty quick buying all of these goodies, so every now and then I think it's nice to point [...]
