    To all hands:

    We have disabled the download for the FSX version of these files, for now. We noticed a pretty big server load increase when these files are being downloaded, to the point that it almost took the site down. We don't think it's the file size that is the problem, although they are pretty large. We think it's more related to the popularity of this awesome package! We are working on a solution. I will turn the downloads for these files back on in the morning (US central time). We do thank you for your patience!

    Not surprised server busy, I've just d/l both FSX & FS9 versions (being greedy) & with a d/l speed hovering about the 400KB/s I was online for about 45 mins! Anyway thanks for solving the problem.

    A small tribute continued because one simply can't get enough of its enchanted beauty:









    Dear Nigel,

    thank you and your team once again for this superb collection of Avro 621 Trainer and Tutor models. It truly is an amazing work of art, very dear to my heart.

    THANK YOU, SIR !!!

    Cheers,
    Jan

    The works of a true artist in modeling, textures, sounds, and flight model. These packages have it all; all one could possibly ask for in gifts to the community. Superb artistic expression at its finest. Thank you Nigel

    Question Reply...

    Nigel and team,

    The server loads continue to be an issue for the Avro Tutor downloads. As a test, I used the ClickTeam software to create auto-installers for the FSX port over and FS9 packages. These are a self-extracting .exe file that does the following.

    FSX port-over Part 1: 242.30MB down to 113MB.
    FSX port-over Part 2: 238.77MB down to 92.5MB.

    FS 2004 Part 1: 205.31MB down to 110MB.
    FS 2004 Part 2: 219.22MB down to 85.3MB.

    Would you like to test them to possibly replace the originals?

    Eternally grateful to YOU for your MAGIC, Milton :-)

    FSX_AVRO_Tutor_port_over_complete - now available...



    Gentlemen, I am pleased to announce that Rami has very kindly packaged the original 2 part
    downloads as 1 complete installer pack.

    !!!PLEASE NOTE!!!
    Whilst the installer is set up to install the complete aircraft to FSX, we would strongly
    recommend directing the installer to a TEMPORARY folder, then manually placing the '_AVRO Tutor'
    folder into the Airplanes directory of your sim.

    Have FUN!

    Nigel

    Nigel,

    thought I'd add my two cents and echo Milton's words: true artistry sir! In all respects, absolutely stunning.
