    TBM 900 v1.1.1 Update Released!

    Looks like 11.30RC1 is out

    Yes it has some improvement which at times looks better than stock cloud. Also redraw weather faster than other weather engines on the market today. Thunderstorms are pretty awesome and effect flying true them finally comes to terms with real life. So over all I'm very happy with it

    For now I use smartCARS it was easier to integrate. Other acars systems are not off the table, but there is no sense to try anything else now LOL

    Yes could be true. I have checked many XP oriented VA before starting my venture, and couldn't find many any TBM in the fleet list there although I did see similar aircraft such as PC-12, C-206 and etc. But it's ok perhaps some day may be someone will find useful. So far my real world flight instructing pays for all VA expanses

    Unfortunately the biggest XP community facebook group I'm part of - XPNG does not allow "self promotional" ads, that includes VAs. This leaves me with Leading Edge Owners and xEnviro groups which seems like VA pitch would be quite irrelevant. But it's ok I'll wait. I didn't expect big crowd anyway LOL

    I'm real life flight instructor and TBM flies fine with me. It's not uncommon for pilots who fly certain type of airplane to discover that other aircraft feels and behaves differently. On several occasions I had students who after initial training in C-152 had hard time flying Cherokee 180 and comparing with a bus LOL So guys don't get frustrated, take your time and get to use to TBM900. I haven't flown real TBM900 but I think Piper Malibu would fall not far from it

    Exciting take off runs...

    I just landed TBM900 with 20 kts crosswind XP11.30b5 . It was very hard and I did one go around, but in the end "crab and kick method" did pay off. Happy flying!

    Don't do this folks!

    It was Piper Comanche. It wouldn’t dump a thing even if I wanted! Lol Not to brag about it but I did several emergency landings. One of them was with in flight fire (very scary), but turned out to be ok Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Don't do this folks!

    This is pretty cool! I did it in real life and fuel was streaming for a while (top off tankes) which look like semitransparent contrail

    No! Lol I did it as a part of experiment to see how phpvms handle it. Well I still got paid as junior pilot lol So don’t look at them I will delete them from database when I have a chance. But if you want to be a part of the staff right now you’ll get auto promoted to the level of your responsibilities:) For example “ check airman” (who is above senior captain ) if you want to evaluate flights and exams Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I got you alright. But at the moment I’m the only person handling VA business and I don’t have much time either. So I offers people to join staff now and contribute. In your case if you would like to open hub in Europe, go ahead join VA staff, create desired hub and dozen routes. It’s literally opportunity for every volunteer right now. And in fact it actually very easy job! But this is limited time offer as of right now Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
