NEWS > T-28A TROJAN Donationware and T-28B&C V1.1 and T-28D Version 2.1 FOR FLIGHT
SIMULATOR X (Feb 2014)
Available now is the new T-28A version. The T-28A was originally built for the US Air Force after World War II as a primary trainer and has a smaller 7 cylinder 800 horsepower engine compared to the 9 cylinder 1425 horsepower engine in the T-28B/C and D. The T-28A is available as donationware. There are no limitations of the T-28A and you are free to download and enjoy this aircraft. If you do enjoy it then why not make a donation to www.aussiex.org or www.sim-ouhouse.com? These sites provide a great resource for freeware and rely entirely on donations to fund the thousands of dollars it takes each year to operate a website. The T-28A replaces the demo versions of the T-28B/C and D and can be used by prospective purchasers of the T-28B/C or D to determine how well they will perform on their computer system.
NEWS > PREPAR3D V2 COMPATIBILITY (updated Jun 2014)
All aircraft except the Tiger Moth have now been updated and tested for use in P3D V2. Each installer contains versions for FSX and P3D V2. There is no extra charge for P3D versions or updates.
The latest version of each aircraft is:
Trojan T-28A V1.0
Trojan T-28B/C V1.11
Trojan T-28D V2.1.
Swamp Wallaby V1.1
Eaglet LSA V1.4
Sierra LSA V1.2
Dirfter Ultralight V1.1
The best way to identify which version you have installed is to read the Pilot's Handbook for the respective aircraft. The version number is written in the header of each page.
As Prepar3D V2 is a new program and subject to continuous updates it is strongly recommended that anyone interested in purchasing any payware aircraft first download the demo version and test it in Prepar3D first to check how well the aircraft runs for them.
Users of Prepar3D V1.4 or earlier may try to install the FSX versions into the Prepar3D folder (see above). P3D V2 aircraft are NOT compatible with P3D V1.4 or earlier or FSX. There will never be special Prepar3D V1.4 or earlier versions of any of Ant’s Airplanes.
Prepar3D V2.2 is the latest version at the time of writing and this is therefore the recommended version for P3D users.

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.
