You seem to be the one to ask, so here goes: Can we get a Cyprus Airways repaint of the Vcol A220?

Hello! You absolutely can. I'll get started on it now!

I've just finished it and submitted it for approval. It will hopefully be available in the next few hours.

That was fast! Thanks! Perhaps a Comlux paint?

I can certainly make one!

Comlux would be a -100 variant.
It looks like there is a need for Breeze, ITA Airways and QANTAS paints for the -300.
The most elusive Vcol paint of the moment would be an Aleutian Airways SAAB2000.
Thanks for whatever efforts are made. I'm grateful that there are so many folks out there keeping FSX alive. I never saw enough in MSFS2020 to invest, and the lack of MSFS24 news is discouraging.

I'm just screenshotting the Comlux livery ready for upload. I'll get to work on the others shortly, but it might take a while.

You're absolutely welcome!

I've just uploaded the Comlux A220-100. I decided against putting the FIVE tail logo on it, as that isn't really relevant to comlux. Also, I couldn't block out any windows. Other than that, I'm rather pleased with the result. Each dot has been manually placed, and should align with the real aircraft!

I've just uploaded the Breeze A220, too. I've selected the light blue inlet cowling, as that seems to be what they are now opting for.

And the Qantas one is now awaiting approval, too!

:lol: You're absolutely welcome! I'll try to get the ITA A220 and the SAAB 2000 done today. When I bought the A220, I was surprised by the lack of liveries available, especially considering how many are included with the SAAB, Shorts, and Dornier packages.

The Saab confuses me. I might be interested in it, but the cover and the copy do not agree, and that keeps my money in the wallet. The cover/marketing image clearly depicts Pen Air. Vcol's ad copy does not list a Pen Air livery. Aleutian is the new successor to Pen air, which itself was a successor to the mighty and legendary Reeve Aleutian. I was a Reeve passenger all the way to Attu in 1972.

I can confirm that the SAAB regional pack DOES include the livery for PEN Air (Screenshot below). I've now completed the last of your A220 requests, and I'll start the SAAB 2000 shortly.

SOLD on the Saab by this.
ITA's a stunner!


Dear readers, are we possibly seeing a man-crush form, LOL?
