TFDi Design have announced that their long awaited 717 is due for release today!
This comes after a post yesterday saying that it would be released in 2016, I didn’t think it would be released that quickly.
The release is set for 23:00GMT today Thursday 22nd December! In a blog post to their website they wrote:
“First, let me start off by saying this has been an incredible journey. We made a commitment that 2016 would be the year of the 717, and so it shall be. Before I announce the all important date and time, there’s something I’d like to share.
The release for us isn’t the end of the journey. It is a start, in a way. We believe the product we’re going to release will be thorough and enjoyable. That said, like any other product, especially the first release, it will not be perfect. We have developed technology to deliver updates that are smaller, quicker, and easier than they are for any comparable product. There are many things we intend to expand and improve in time. These updates will be provided frequently and free of charge to all customers, naturally, potentially excluding something like support for a new simulator platform or an entirely new expansion to the product.
We are ready to begin the second half of this journey, and at 6:00PM Eastern (2300z) on December 22nd, you will be too.
I’ll leave off with a few pictures of the aircraft at night, as we haven’t shown that off much yet.”
