A live stream is being hosted on November 2nd 2018, 7PM Eastern Time (GMT-4). The stream will primarily focus on creating a custom skin for use in Ace Combat X and Ace Combat: Joint Assault.

The launch of Ace Combat 101 took place on October 23rd, 2018 with the first article and video made available. The presentation of Tomcat 171's video on The Basics of Flight set a high bar for video production in the project. Ace Combat Fan is already hard at work on his video which will be the second entry in the video series.
