VSKYLABS Update On Pond Racer And A22-LS



The VSKYLABS Rutan Model-158 ("Pond Racer") Project for X-Plane byLaminar Research: As noted in previous posts, the VSKYLABS RutanModel-158 Project is introducing an enhanced yet plausible version ofthe Model-158 which is incorporating a highly defined and robust PT6-ATurbojet propulsion simulation and other enhancements/modificationsthat are aimed to extend the aircraft usability in addition the basic"Stick and Throttle" Racing aircraft usage.

Enhancements are including the PT6-A propulsion implementation,pressurized cockpit, on-board Oxygen system, navigation aids,auto-pilot, Anti-icing and De-icing systems and more.


In order to stay truthful to the original design, all enhancementsare being built around the SOLID CORE of the original Model-158design, and with true-to-life, plausible integrations to theaircraft. A lot of thinking and effort is being made to include the"Rutan design approach spirit" as well.

Based on the original Model-158 general cockpit layout, theinterior is designed with a "Sporty" 90's look-and-feel!

The VSKYLABS Aeroprakt A22-LS Project will soon be showcased deeperand closer, as development is reaching its goals for initial releaseversion v1.0.

These two projects are under development for quite a long time now(long months, and more than a year). This is quite normal, althoughthe wait can get a bit "painful" to some...This is the nature of suchprojects development process that involves a delicate multi-aspectdesign, engineering and development effort. If all goes as expected,BOTH project are SCHEDULED FOR RELEASE during February and March2021(!!!) This is quite close and approaching fast! So Stay tuned!
