It's an aircraft, no it's a control tower, but it looks like a man sitting in a chair. Developed in 2007 by Kevin Bryan for one of our early airshow displays, but not allowed on VATSIM, this model has been updated by David Bouderim for us to use in our planned multiplayer display sessions.
Virtual Air Racing
The Club held a season of air races in 2008 which were discontinued because of technical difficulties at the time. This file by Club member Alexander Vasilyev puts forward a scheme which may work better than our first attempt, so the Club is assisting in its development.
Another document by Alexander Vasilyef setting out the standard scheme for aerobatics, and a proposal to adopt and adapt this for FSX.

A European altimeter_V01
Default FS aircraft and many others designed on the western side of the pond have the Kohlsmann subscale graduated in inches of mercury (ISA pressure is 29.92 inches). This altimeter has a second Kohlsmann window with its scale graduated in millibars (or hectopascals). ISA pressure in Europe is 1013.2 hectopascals. File:39Kb
A European altimeter_V02
This version is more typical of light aircraft in Europe, with a single Kohlsmann window with its scale calibrated in Hectopascals. It includes instructions to create a pop-up window with an enlarged altimeter which makes it easier to read the Kohlsmann scale numbers on small monitors or PCs with low end graphics cards.
