10/22/2018 - SkySimulations, new MD-11 v2

Interesting surprise.
All of a sudden SkySimulations released its version 2 of the MD-11.
Running on P3Dv3 and P3Dv4.
Screenshots and published vids on YouTube look promising:

Good to know: PaintKit should arrive within days.
Check it out, I do for sure.
Maybe that MD11v2 becomes part of the fleet, who knows ;-)

09/09/2018 - JF working on B-747-200F

Very interesting. JustFlight is developing a B-747-200F.
The available screenshots are pleasing so far.

08/08/2018 - CS 757 III v.1.2 and RR

Great news from CaptainSim. The CS 757 III reached version 1.2 with sorting out lots of bugs.
The add-on with Rolls-Royce engines saw the light of day yesterday.
I guess the freighter add-on of this lovely plane is showing up in a few months.
If so, the CS 757 III freighter will be part of the ACV fleet too and ACV goes live, finally.
Check CS 757 III out here: https://captainsim.net/products/y757/sops/

More news to ACV and about the development of its tremendous ACVacars soon.

04/26/2018 - CS 737 v.2.2, CS 757 III

CaptainSim has recently released a new patch for the 737: Version 2.2 that fixes the annoying landing-lights bug.
Furthermore, the new 757 III is on its way to the long awaited version 1.1. The freighter version could arrive still in 2018.

Good and important news for ACV. Thanks to CaptainSim!

The own work at the ACVacars has reached version 0.9.1.3.
Awaiting the 757 III freighter and the updates for 727 and 1011 to P3Dv4 from CS before recruiting new pilots.
If not, ACV opens its doors finally in Autumn 2018, whatever the update-status from CS aircrafts to P3Dv4 will be.
(The very slow progression of CaptainSim in bringing the great CS add-ons to P3Dv4 is somewhat frustrating.)

Furthermore, I am checking out the possibilities with X-Plane 11. ACVacars is generally capable to handle this FSim too.

11/26/2017 - CS 757, new version in BETA

Great news.
CaptainSim works on a new 757.
The new version will have HD-textures, P3Dv4 compatibility, and much more.
It seems to be a complete rework.

Pretty much sure that the new 757 of CS will be part of the ACV fleet.

Thanks, CS :-)

09/05/2017 - ACV, a year later

ACV was founded more than a year ago. The spare time required to program the (modified) website-content and, especially, to develop the ACVacars program was tremendous. Nevertheless, I gave not up and now, one year later, I can say that ACV is on good ways. In one or two months ACV is going operational, including the recruitment of further pilots.

At the beginning, the fleet will consist of several B-727-200F, B-737-200F for the short to medium range routes and of several L-1011-200F and DC-10-30F for the medium to long range routes. The SA227-BC METROLINER III (Cargo) will be included afterwards. It is planned to include the DC-8-73F and the B-777-200F a few months later.

It will be possible to perform the flights with our ACVacars from scratch. That guarantees fairness and objectivity. Furthermore, the VA-CEO does not need to personally check each flight-log in every aspect. The flight-log is automatically reviewed and accepted/declined by ACVacars.

More news coming soon.
