2015 New aircraft for the 2015 White List

Post by Mike.MacKuen » Mon Jan 19, 2015 12:56 am

We are pleased to announce that two aircraft will be added to the official 2015 White List as "normal" racing aircraft. The 2015 White List will be much the same as that for 2014. If you have a new addition that you truly want to fly, please let us know. (We shall not be adding aircraft simply because they sound vaguely interesting. We do not have the time for the extensive testing needed to qualify an aircraft unless it is sure to be a major player in the race.)

Grumman F8F Bearcat

Freeware. FS9 and FSX. Original author Michele Migaud (ABC Team). Upgrade for FS9 and for FSX (port over) by Milton Shupe and Ed Wells. (The flight model is the same, but various fixes make the aircraft more suitable for our event.)

Hawker Sea Fury FB.11

Payware. FSX. Modeled by Flying Stations. To use the Flying Stations Sea Fury, you must use the corrected flight model (a new airfile). For a link to the new airfile, see the White List entry. The original (dated 1-27-2012) flight model is not suitable for the race and its usage will result in severe penalties for the team and for the violating pilot. Sea Fury pilots should be certain that they have installed the correct airfile. If you have any questions about this, please consult with your teammates.
