Umberto at fsdreamteam (FSDT) has made it clear that their upcoming FSX version of Vancouver International Airport (CYVR) will be fully compatible with Vancouver+ V3 and ORBX FTX PNW.  Timeframes are a mystery but I (and many others!) look forward to the release of this long-sought component of Pacific Northwest scenery.
