The 11th week of 2019 saw 20 articles run through the presses here at Threshold. Though it was mainly announcements and updates that made headlines in the last 7 days, there is still a good range of news from a range of developers. Let’s recap it!

Last Sunday saw a couple of notable articles, namely an update to the Digital Replica Cessna 310L. Version 1.09 completely overhauls the autopilot system, new sounds were added and numerous bugs saw their demise. See the full list of changes here.

Monday got off to a good start with an announcement by Aerosoft about a brand new Manchester scenery coming to XP soon. The day got even better with arguably the biggest news of the month so far with Aerobask announcing a partnership with Dassault Aviation to develop a Falcon 8X for Laminar’s sim.

The second day of the new week saw another major Prepar3D developer make their way to X-Plane with Flight Sim Development Group (FSDG) releasing two sceneries for the platform: Graz (LOWG) and Agadir (GMAD). FSDG made their commitment to the sim even more clear with the announcement of two more X-Plane sceneries on the same day, with Dakar and Sharm El-Sheikh coming soon.
