The Skypark Acquired by TFDi Design

TFDi Design have recently taken to their website to announce the acquisition of The Skypark which was originally developed by Parallel 42.

What is The Skypark?

The Skypark includes characters, contract jobs, tours, and adventures for pilots to use their custom aircraft and scenery collections. It is a PC app that simulates the so-called SkyOS on your virtual Skypad. Parallel 42 described SkyOS as a platform for the future. The product features pre-installed apps, such as Contrax. Contrax is an app where you can browse available activities like Cargo Runs, New Experiences, Tours, Ferry Flights, and more.

Moreover, there’s an electronic flight bag app called yoFlight where you can track and plan your flights, as well as manage contract checklist items such as loading and unloading cargo. Lastly, there’s a management app called “Conduit” where you can view current and past contract details.
