June 2018 – Become an expert in X-Plane VR & B747 with these videos

Hello there!

The Laminar Research team will be attending FlightSimExpo in Las Vegas, Nevada next week on June 8-10. We will be presenting the latest news and behind the scenes information on our work on X-Plane on Saturday, June 9 at 10:15 am. Attendees will be able to stop by our booth to say hello any time during the weekend, or try out X-Plane in VR if they haven’t already. But don’t worry if you can’t be there in person–we’ll also have recap information and a video of our presentation coming later in the month so you don’t miss anything.

The TB-10 Tobago & TB-20 Trinidad set was developed by Just Flight’s in-house team and Thranda Design, following extensive research and consultation with real-world pilots. These are general aviation aircraft with spacious and comfortable cabins providing seating for up to five people and have proved popular for touring and instrument training. These models include detail such as modeled screw heads and animated seat backs, and authentic wear and tear (including fingerprint marks). They also include a vast array of avionics including a KMA 24, GNS 430, GNC 255, KN 62, KAP 150, GTX 330, KR 87 and WX-1000 Stormscope.
