Helisimmer interviewed Austin Meyer about the process behind creating X-Plane 11 and plans for the future, with an emphasis on helicopters of course:
Will we ever see tiltrotors again in X-Plane? Do you plan on providing better support for this kind of aircraft?
OOOOOOHHHHHHHHH so funny you asked that.
If I could tell you the meeting I had this afternoon up here in New York about getting tilt-rotors, your head would simply EXPLODE… I am still reeling from that meeting.
BUUUUUT, I am not 100% sure that I am allowed to discuss that yet, so I won’t name names or companies or exact missions, but:
1: It is nobody you have heard of, so don’t waste my time guessing.
2: It is everything we we imagined when we watched Blade Runner and saw the spinners flying around the city. I have seen the first glimpse of how that will be REAL, and I will surely share it with the world when the time is right, since X-Plane and Xavion will be in the development matrix for this aircraft.. and as always I will try to share the results with everyone, not just the people hiring me.
