flight sim

Two combat flight simulation studios have partnered to deliver two very different games using a common flight simulation engine technology.

Ace Simulations and Thunderworks today announced a joint venture to create two exciting combat flight simulation games. The first game, Air Ace, in production by Ace Simulations, is set during World War II and features an online-only MMO style hardcore dog-fighting experience. The second game, Jet Thunder, being created by Thunderworks, features the unique jet combat experience of the 1980’s Falklands conflict between Britain and Argentina.

The announced joint venture will allow for both companies to contribute to both games and bring exciting game play elements to each combat flight simulation game. “We’re excited to work together,” says Phil Carlisle, Air Ace Project Lead, “Because our skill sets complement each other. The Jet Thunder team has some fantastic artists, but is a little light on programmers, whereas our team has some incredibly experienced programmers, but lacked the skilled artists required to finish the game to our high standards.”

“While Air Ace and Jet Thunder are very different products in their aims and goals, they can share a common core flightsim technology,” said Dante De Patta, Jet Thunder Project Lead. “Our project will continue to be developed as a realistic, in-depth simulation, focusing on dynamic campaigns and mission structures, while Air Ace will focus more on the air combat experience in a persistent world.”

The new partnership will see many exciting improvements and faster development for both projects as both will feature a shared technology codebase, based on an extensively updated and modified version of the Torque Shader Engine by GarageGames.

About Air Ace:

Air Ace is an online dogfighting flight simulation game set during the world war two era. Players connect to a persistant service and are able to gain rank and take part in a community oriented game, which owes much to past games such as Air Attack and Air Warrior.

About Jet Thunder:

Jet Thunder is a realistic simulation of air and ground combat set during the conflict between Britain and Argentina over the Falkland Islands (Malvinas). Jet Thunder will bring to life this unique conflict, which was perhaps the last time jet fighters used actual air to air dogfighting tactics.

www.RC-ers-Gonewild.com presents this special edition program of Dave flying and testing the ClearView RC Flight simulator called "On a ClearView Night". http is their website to download this sim and at .95, this simulator will give all the top sims some competition. The Esky 0905a transmitter (.95 from xheli.com www.dpbolvw.net ) works perfectly with this sim. Although there are few provisions for dual rates, landing gears, wing flaps, brakes, etc, the flying characteristics really are well thought out. Someone put a lot of effort into making this program work. The graphics are top notch and the amount of planes and helis that are actual replicas of the real models are amazing. It works with just about and TX and sim cord. I can also using my Spektrum Dx6i, with no problems. This is an excellent training aid to learn to fly and will teach a lot to beginners and pros alike. But remember, even though you have to know what to do with the sticks in the sim just as real life, you must beware of getting a cocky attitude because you can fly the sim so well. That usually changes the first time out to the field as you see sims can give you a false sense of confidence. So practice more than you think you need to and this will help immensely. I recommend this Clearview flight sim to everybody. It is really fun and has some neat training aids to help. It works on Vista perfectly. Check out their website and happy flying. Dave Herbert.

This is a video of the Stark’s Twin Oaks (7S3) scenery by orbx ( www.fullterrain.com) that is also an homage to the wonderful Back to the Future movies at the same time. It features A2A Simulation’s P-47 Razorback ( http ), fittingly sporting the Miss Lorraine livery (as in Lorraine Baines McFly). There is no Twin Pines Mall here, but the Twin Oaks airport will do nicely instead. 😉 Filmed with EZCA / EZdok Camera (www.flight1.com )

Frasca’s low cost Cessna Caravan Full Flight Simulator in use at the University of Alaska, Anchorage, has received FAA Level B approval.

The University of Alaska, Anchorage has received FAA Level B approval of their Frasca Caravan Full Flight Simulator (FFS). The FAA approved the device as a Level B Full Flight Simulator with no restrictions. The FAA also gave the Caravan FFS additional approvals beyond normal Level B; these allow the University to perform circle to landing maneuvers. The device includes an electric six-axis motion base and a three channel Frasca FVS200TX visual system.

According to Ron Haney, Director, UAA Aviation Technology Division, ” The Caravan Level B FFS has exceeded our expectations. Professional pilots with many hours of actual Caravan experience have stated that the Frasca simulator is superior to other Caravan simulators they’ve trained in, and it more accurately exhibits flight and handling characteristics associated with the actual airplane”. The University of Alaska has utilized Frasca Flight Training Devices for over fifteen years and found them to be well built and extremely dependable. Technical support and parts, for those rare times when they are needed, have always been readily available. This is why we selected Frasca to build the Aviation Technology Division’s Cessna Caravan Level B simulator. In addition, having worked with the company over the years we were confident that they could produce a quality product. “

Frasca is also currently manufacturing a Level C KingAir FFS for the Japan Civil Aviation Promotion Foundation (JCAPF). The simulator will include six-axis motion and four window collimated visual system. Frasca has also delivered Full Flight Simulators for the BO-105 and Bell 412 Helicopters and has installed several FAA Level 6 Flight Training Devices for a variety of aircraft including the CRJ. The Caravan device is Frasca’s first FAA Level B approved Full Flight Simulator and marks a significant development for the company. The device is also significant as it is priced considerably lower than industry standards and is possibly the first low cost Full Flight Simulator to be delivered, installed and FAA approved.

Frasca International, Urbana, Illinois, manufactures flight training equipment for airlines, flight schools, Universities and military organizations worldwide. Product range includes Flight Training Devices (FTDs), FNPT I, II and IIMCC devices, CPTs, Full Flight Simulators (FFS) and more for all aircraft types, fixed wing and rotary. Frasca has delivered over 1800 devices to some 70 countries since the companies founding in 1958. For more information on the Caravan FFS or other products, contact Peggy Prichard (pprichard@frasca.com) or visit the Frasca website at http://www.frasca.com. Digital photos available upon request.
