Peter's request for his private fleet of XL Airways has been filled once more.
Another repaint of Air Swiss, requested by Manfred for his virtual airline.
While searching for couple of files on my disk, I found out that there are some repaints I did long time ago but forgot to release them publicly. One of them is a fleet of fictional Air Swiss VA, requested by Manfred almost three years ago.
Not sure if this VA still exist.
XL Airways (Excel) received another repaint, used in past. Texture is made for non winglet version 737-800.
Virtual airline - Energy Air - is visiting our library once again. This time with their 777-300ER.
D-ABTH called Duisburg is the 7th and the last 747 Combi that got 2nd life, well at least in our simulator. :-)
All of their real counterparts were unfortunately scrapped while ago.
Virgin Atlantic is another 773ER repaint that arrived to our library.
Virgin never had Triple-7 in their fleet but this one was requested by Alexandre.
Bulgaria Air never had 777 in their fleet but thanks to Teo's request, you can enjoy it with -200LR version.
One of the many rapaints of XL Airways I have done for Peter.
More to come. Be aware that these are still for legacy version of NGX.
The NGXu should arrive soon.

Just after releasing first 747-F today , now it's time for passenger version.
First repaint is Lufthansa with D-ABYA registration.
Another retro repaint of XL Airways and once again requested by Peter.
Be aware that this repaint was done while ago and it works only with legacy version of 737. I decided to release this one and more are coming since I know that not everyone jumped to new rendition.
747-8 is finally here!
My first repaint made for it is the Freighter version in Seattle Seahawks colors.
Its photo you will find here.
Download link available in the new category, here.
If you don't own -8F, you can still enjoy this repaint with -400F, which is available here.
If you just woke up and didn't check flight_sim news outlets yet or if you live under the rock ;-), you should know that PMDG yesterday made big announcement in regards to their development tactics. If you heard the news already, you can skip to the paragraph about repaints.
In initial post around 20:00 (UTC Time), Robert said that they abandon any plans for XP platform, they also ditch immediately 32-bit platform. What was however more important, their Upcoming 737NG3 will be released for MSFS2020 only.
You can read it in details here.
Well, just three hours later, he surprised us with another statement that new version of 737 for P3D v4 is out!
Although, you won't find MAX version included, this is reworked 737NG. Base package which is available right now, includes 800, 900 and new 900ER version. Their tiny sisters -600 and 700 as well as BBJ and BBJ2 version will follow in expansion pack soon.
Full statement about 737NGXu available here.
PMDG changed their tactics which is a great news in my opinion and although you have to pay for new version of base package 99$, if you do it before 31st December 2019, as soon as MSFS2020 is out, you will receive 99$ discount when later simulator is out. Cross-platform discount is something new in PMDG's approach for price tagging their product and for sure very welcome. Thanks to this, you can enjoy it right now and the new sim if you decide to switch but be sure to buy it before the end of the year. Otherwise you will have to pay full price twice, same as it was in case of FSX>P3D transition.
Now, let's talk about repaints for NGXu. I already received over a dozen messages from you where you ask if I'm going to buy NGXu now and if I will prepare repaints for it. My answer is YES, I will but I'm not in rush so it's up to you how quickly I will get it.
I just checked and paint kit for NGXu isn't available yet but if you want to secure your place for request in the queue, contact me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Sooner = better. This will also give me indication how many of you are interested and how quickly I should re-arrange paint kit when it's out.
If you are in the queue already waiting for your NGX repaint to be done and if you would like me to make it for NGXu instead of old version, please, also let me know via email.
If you wonder if old repaints will work with new version, the answer is I don't know yet. I'm not sure if there are some external model changes made or not. Well, there is one addition PMDG made for sure - split scimitar winglet.
Anyway, if old repaints are compatible with new rendition, then this great news and it's a win-win for all of us.
If not, I will see what I can do to transfer them to new model and how the process will look like
. I won't give you any promises, however, neither I will make any definitive decisions until I'm sure about the model and how much of time it would take.
I guess that would be all for now but stay tuned because I have another news coming this weekend, maybe even today. :-)
A new airline joined our library - Bluebird Nordic.
In real, Bluebird Nordic operates older versions of 737 - 300 and 400.
This one I released is for 737-700.and was requested by Alexandre.
Thanks to Peter's request, XL Airways received 737-600.
Of course, it is fictional repaint, XL Airways never had "600" in their fleet.
Seattle Seahawks "12" is the newest repaint that landed in the library.
In real you will find this livery on 747-8F with registration N841BA.
However,I made it for my own usage and for those of you who do not own "-8" expansion but still would like to enjoy it.
XLAirways is one of those companies that ceased their operations recently.
They never used Triple-7 but since we don't have decent A330, neither I paint any Airbuses, this repaint was requested by Peter for his collection.
747-8 category added!
