NEWS > EAGLET LSA V1.21, SIERRA LSA V1.41 PATCH (Sep 2014)
There is a new patch available for the Eaglet and Sierra. This patch will fix a problem with the GPS296 where activating an approach would not select the correct transition. It also fixes a problem with the position of the water rudder in the Eaglet floats version.
The patch works for the payware and demo versions of the Eaglet V1.20 and Sierra V1.40 (the patch requires these versions be installed first).
The demo models have now been updated to the latest version. The payware versions will not be updated and so require the patch to installed to be completely up to date.

NEWS > FLIGHT SIMULATOR X STEAM EDITION (Dec 2014)
Dovetail games has bought the rights to distribute Microsoft's Flight Simulator X. They are doing this via the Steam download service.
At the moment I am unable to confirm compatibility of any of my addons for use in Flight Simulator X Steam Edition (FSX:SE).
If you have installed FSX:SE you can try to install any addon into FSX:SE by doing the following:
Run the installer program.
Confirm the install location points the the root Flight Simulator X directory for FSX:SE. This should look something like Program Files (x86)/Steam/SteamApps/Common/Flight Simulator X. If it doesn't then you should browse to this location.
