Prepar3d v4 64 Bit Released!


The latest and hotly anticipated 64 bit version of Lockheed Martin’s Prepar3d Flight Simulator has been released and is available for purchase!

Prepar3D v4 completely changes the simulation landscape with a comprehensive baseline update to a 64-bit architecture. Higher resolution visuals, more objects, increased data precision, larger scenarios, and improved performance are now all possible at levels never seen before in the product’s history. The sky’s not the limit!

Additionally, the release brings dynamic lighting, rain/snow particles, global 3D trees, a fully reworked software development kit (SDK), new default vehicles, and countless improvements.

Good luck getting to it anytime soon however! has been down because of the excessive traffic since early this morning. :)

Those of you who post regularly I’m sure have noticed that I haven’t been responding to requests to post on your behalf recently.  I posted the reason for this on FB but forgot to post here.  I’m still here and we’re not closing or anything.  On April 17th my home flooded.  We had around 2 feet of water in our home.  I’ve just been really busy with all the cleanup and turmoil that occurs when an event like this happens.  We lost everything downstairs, my wife’s car was totaled, and my truck took on water.  Still trying to save the truck.  We were living in a hotel for 5 weeks but are back home now.  We still have no walls, floor, or kitchen.  I may post pictures at some point.  What a mess.

I do assure you that I will be back and will resume posting for you and your virtual airlines again.  My apologies for lack of communication but our focus was getting back in the house.  Thanks for your understanding..

Best Regards,

VAFlash.Com Links Page Pruned

va-flashFrom time to time I visit all the websites on our links page and delete dead links and/or links of VA’s that haven’t posted with us in quite a while.  Today was the day for the current iteration. :)  I will probably prune more after I search each VA to see when their last news was posted with us.

Inevitably, this is supposed to be a two way street…  I post the link to your VA in exchange for content from your VA in the form of news.  Without content, VAFlash is a dead site.  If your VA’s site is listed on our links page, consider sending a news bit from time to time.

If you find your VA removed and have any questions please email me at the address in our Submit News page. ;)

How many of you out there know someone who currently has Cancer, or has died of Cancer?  I think most of the population has.  Ryan Boulton-Lear with UKVirtual contacted me to see if I was interested in being a sponsor/link partner for the 24 Hour Flying Charity Challenge.  The 24 Hour FlyingCharity Challenge is a Flight Simulation event benefiting Cancer Research UK.  Of course I agreed to be a sponsor and link partner.  I’ve lost friends and relatives including my Father and Brother to Cancer.  If you have a moment, please lend yourself to this event/cause.  It’s a great opportunity to do what you love which is flying virtually, while raising money for a great charity!
