Captain Sim Releases 777 Captain (Exerior Only)

Captain Sim announced that they have released the initial version of their 777 Captain product, which is only the exterior model of their 777.  Price for this is currently €9.99, or around US $15.  They are apparently working on the interior systems now, but for the time being, the interior of the Captain Sim 777 is aliased to the default FSX Boeing 747-400 panel.

Currently only the 777-200 is available, although I presume that in the usual Captain Sim fashion, there will be other 777 variants available in the future as well.

I called this one long ago...not surprised they are doing this one, given the way Captain Sim has been working their way through the Boeing line.  It will be interesting to see how the Captain Sim 777 stacks up against the forthcoming PMDG 777.

I think I'll wait on this one until they are a little farther along, but this is certainly a very interesting development.

Wilco Releases Airbus Evolution

After several brief delays, Wilco has finally released the Airbus Evolution Vol. 1 and 2 for FS9 and FSX.  Many regard this as largely a service pack for the existing Wilco Airbus products, though some of the fixes are nice to have.
