• Review: vFlyteAir Ryan Navion

    The Ryan Navion dates back to the 1940's and has both a military heritage and civilian usage. Many are still flying. vFlyteAir has recreated this plane for X-Plane 10 and reviewer Shawn Weigelt takes it for a spin. While not perfect, he finds it to be an extremely good flier.

    Silver Argosy Part 2

    Tony Vallillo has long regaled us with his tales of airline flying. But flying the big jets was not enough; he dreamed of owning his own plane. This ultimately came about in a way that involved knowing just the right people and looking at just the right time. In part 1 the deal was made, but now he owned a plane on the wrong coast of the US that needed to be flown home, resulting in an adventure of low and slow flying.
