The Digital Aviation aviation team wishes all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2010.
We’d like to thank all of you for your help in the forums, bug reports and especially for your patience when things couldn’t be finished on time. Have a nice holiday season and see you all in 2010.

Some time has passed since the last update on our CRJ project and again we had some changes in our team. Owen Hewitt and Nick Landolfi unfortunately had to leave the project due to personal reasons not related to the CRJ. They’re succeeded by Aerosoft’s Martin Schmieschek – though most of you might not know his name, a lot of you already own scenery and aircraft he worked on. The basic 3d aircraft and virtual cockpit models are already done and he’s working on details now. But don’t think it’s already almost done. It’s the details that require most of the time.
On the panel side of things, I’m happy to announce that I moved the FMC navigation data into a SQLite database. This improves both, stability and performance of the FMC code. When the CRJ is released, it’s going to contain a utility to transfer Navigraph’s Cheyenne/Fokker Navdata into the SQLite database.
Robin Bilgil sent me two new screenshots of the 2d cockpit for you to look at. I’d preferred to have them filled with some life, but work on the FMC kept me from doing this in the past few weeks.
