Orbx Releases US CRM - Central Rocky Mountains
FTX Central Rocky Mountains (CRM) is the first of a series of US Interior West regions extending the ORBX NA BLUE regions to the east and south.
CRM is a vast region covering parts of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming with key cities including Yakima, Boise, Idaho Falls, Helena, Billings, and Jackson.
You will experience varied and beautiful landscapes with custom seasonal ground textures based on current aerial photograps taken over the region. Spectacular locations, such as the Columbia Plateau, Hells Canyon, Craters of the Moon National Monument, the Salmon River and Sawtooth Mountains, the Montana Prairies, and Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, all are depicted in great detail.
Just like with the NA BLUE series we've given every single of the ~450 airports and airstrips in the region an upgrade with more accurate placements of runways and taxiways as well as buildings, hangars, and objects.
Additionally, every single square mile of land class is hand placed and all major roads, rivers lakes, powerlines, wind farms, and vertical obstructions are included for accurate VFR flying. Last but not least all ground textures are hand-annotated with our custom autogen objects.

AVSIM FANCON 2011 Cancelled
AVSIM’s publisher, Tom Allensworth, made the following announcement tonight; “It is with regret that the AVSIM staff and I are forced to announce tonight the cancellation of the 2011 FANCON. The current number of registrations and the number of vendors committing to attend are disappointingly few. We are compelled to cancel now in order to keep from accruing larger penalty fees than we will pay if we cancel now."

Precision Simulator 1 and PSX
Love your podcast. I was wondering if you would mention in your podcast the excellent Precision Simulator 1 by Aerowinx, which is the gold standard of airline systems simulation based on the 747-400. PS1 was DOS based and is now quite old; however, the author Hardy Heinlin from Germany is now working on a new version (PSX) and is providing updates on the project to the community on his forum. Here are some links...
I think the community would love to learn more about these advanced products. An interview with HH would be even better!
