Return of the 100 Dollar Burger

In the midst of all the announcements about large airport projects, a GA-loving person might despair that we’re abandoning our first love. Au contraire! As we steam towards KDAL and KPDX, our aim is to keep the flow of smaller fields going as well. And to prove that commitment, we’ll soon be releasing a dual-airport [...]

Myrtle, fetch the mower!

Convincing sim airports are built of many things, most of which we can pretty much all agree on. Hangars are shaped a certain way, pavement looks like asphalt or concrete or gravel, vehicles either have the right look or they don’t. Where things get a bit more subjective are in the tiny, organic details – [...]

Summer on the Island

Nantucket Island for Prepar3D v4 is turning base to final, so I thought I’d take a moment to share some pics. Just like the real deal, summer means traffic! The bizjets are starting to crowd the ramp, and there’s been a marked uptick in GA birds as well. All the ones shown in these pics are [...]

The Heron’s Nest is Now P3Dv4 Ready!

The first of our dedicated Prepar3D v.4 projects has just been released. The Heron’s Nest has been updated with that lovely P3Dv4 dynamic night lighting in both hangars, and a new installer has been created specifically for the newest sim. Current owners can download the P3D4 installer by logging into their “My Account” page on [...]

FlightSimCon 2017 was a huge success. By far the highest numbers of attendees ever, and what a stellar lineup of sim creators, add-on developers, hardware manufacturers and enthusiasts! If at all possible, make plans to attend next year. iBlueYonder was there, of course, and we had a couple of new product announcements that we think [...]

It’s About Time.

Presented with no further commentary… yet. ;-)

A Note on iBlueYonder P3D4/FSW Compatibility

I just got back from a week of family business to discover that LM has announced the P3D v.4 release will be on May 30th. And of course, the preview of Dovetail’s Flight Sim World is already available on Steam as of May 18. This is great news for the sim community, and we’re really [...]

Dovetail’s Flight Sim World: First Look!

Dovetail Games rolled out an intriguing video today with some tasty preview tidbits of their upcoming Flight Sim World simulator. As a company dedicated to environmental art, we’re very excited about what we’ll be able to do with this sim. We may not know detailed specifics yet, but one thing we can say is that [...]

A Great Little Free Plane for Your Free Island

A Great Little Free Plane for Your Free Island post image

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: And of course for your copy of the Heron’s Nest [...]
