NEW P3D DEVELOPMENT
NEW P3D HI-TECH DEVELOPMENTS - NEW AIRCRAFT. As a number of people have correctly guessed, we have been exceptionally quiet (and busy) with regards FSX releases (and new developers). The thing is, we have been working hard on a new range of releases both for FSX and for P3D. The new P3D stuff is going to be what you always have expected from Ariane (which means even greater details, more developments and even more new technology). With the new FSX stuff it will mean even more to add to your current hangar. Everything you could possibly want and more. So we are far from done, we're rolling forward and onwards and upwards! Watch this space.
