FSX – Bombardier Dash 8-100 And -200 Sound Set. This sound set is designed specifically for the Dreamwings Dash 8 and most likely will NOT sound as intended in any other aircraft. Unlike most turboprop sound sets, including the default ones, this sound package features propeller sounds that play according to prop RPM, rather than turbine RPM. This provides a much more realistic turboprop sound experience. For example, during final approach, when the props are set to max RPM but the engine power is set lower, you will hear the high prop RPM. As another example, while desceding at, say, flight idle, the constant speed propellers continue to turn at their set speed (e.g. 900 RPM), and you will hear the propellers at this speed even though the power levers are at flight idle. In most turboprop sound sets, you would instead hear a sound that corresponds to idle prop RPM. This sound set does not use pre-recorded startup sounds. Instead, the propeller sounds are programmed to play even at very low RPM. As the engine starts and prop RPM increases in the sim, the sounds will change. Then, as the propellers are unfeathered, the sound will change again. In addition to the propeller sounds, a quiet turbine whine is also included.

FSX – AFCAD For MCAS Iwakuni. This is not meant to be for the hardcore military simming types, as there are only a small number of parking spaces available. MCAS Iwakuni is used by a few contract airlines, to include OAI, National, and Atlas. Fedex and Delta will also make stops, albeit this is very rare. All Nippon flies in and out of Iwakuni several times per day, usually with an A320. The AFCAD includes the updated land extension, as well as the new runway. The tower view has been moved to the public access road, which is popular with local airport spotters. The physical tower has been updated to a newer, taller model, and the ANA terminal has been added. Cargo ramps have been added near the base terminal. Some of the maintenance hangars have been updated, to include the living spaces on North Side. The ILS frequency is updated, and moved to the new location to reflect the update. Autoland functionality has been tested with the PMDG NGX, and FSLabs A320. They both performed flawlessly.
