Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

[[File:Q400-exterior.jpg|thumb|Bombardier Q400 remodelled]]
The Bombardier Q400, former dhc8-400 by Alex Park has received a major update including fully remodelling and new systems by Florian K and D-ECHO. You can follow the development on the github repository: https://github.com/D-ECHO/Q400
[[File:Parachutist.png|thumbnail|Skydiver model with Ram-Air Parachute]]
The comprehensive free-fall skydiver model by [http://www.flightgear.org/tours/sky-diving-visualization/ Creare] is now included in the Aircraft hangar. In addition a ram-air parachute flight-dynamics model was added. This means the model has two separate Flight Dynamics configurations in one package which are both active when the parachute is deployed. With this combination you can now start a free fall decent at 12,500 foot, manoeuvre your way down to about 2,000-2,500 foot, deploy the parachute with the 'D' key and then glide your way down. At about 50 foot pull '''down''' full to slow down the decent and gently touch the ground. A possible next step which has been suggested is to include the [[http://wiki.flightgear.org/Walk_view|Walker] Walker] model.
