Design group ARNZ has released a new aircraft line in its AIS-AI series: the Boeing 737 "Baby Boeing", including the -200, -300 and -400 models. A base pack, paint kit and numerous liveries are already available. For full details, click on Read More.

Aircraft Repaints New Zealand are proud to unveil the latest series of aircraft models in the AIS-AI range for FS2004 and FS2002. Referred to as 737 'Baby Boeings', this latest release features the Boeing 737-200, the 737-300 and the 737-400. All models are designed to replace your current AI aircraft fleet. The aircraft include up to 5 LOD models, an enhanced low polygon shadow model, fully animated spoilers, flaps, gear and gear doors, engine fans and wheels. The models also feature 'texture targetting', which means surfaces on the aircraft not normally seen are not textured to help enhance frame rate performance.

All the 737 BB models feature variations of AIS - Animated Inbuilt Scenery. With this unique development in aircraft modelling, gone are the days of 'static' AI aircraft sitting at the gate. By including this exclusive feature your AI aircraft now have a variety of ground service vehicles tending each aircraft, with much of it animated. With the 737 BB series you can expect to see animated catering trucks and baggage loading, along with static refuelling trucks. Another exclusive feature to the AIS-AI range is 'Pushback'. FS2004 now allows for all AI aircraft to initially be pushed back prior to departure, with AIS-AI aircraft a pushback tug will appear and push the aircraft into position.

The 737 BB pack has been released with an extensive USER GUIDE which includes instructions on how to add the aircraft to your aircraft config file for use in your AI flight plans. 25 texture packs which can be downloaded separately have also been released, and feature airlines from Asia, Europe, the United States, the Pacific Islands, Australia, Canada and New Zealand. A number of these texture packs feature 'specials' such as the Ryanair - Jaguar 732, the JAL - Phoenix Express 734 and the Air Nippon - Island Dolphin 734. A paint kit is also available.
