• Review: Milviz Boeing 737-200C

    The Boeing 737-200C from Milviz is ideal for multiple levels of home flight simulations, reports reviewer Bill Stack. Diehard enthusiasts will enjoy its highly accurate performance modeling, especially its complete "cold and dark" startup procedure. Flight simmers who want to bypass the intricate preflight tasks will enjoy Milviz's alternate startup methods. The plane itself is an accurate representation of this early 737 model.
