• Review: MSX Creations - Katoomba Airport For MSFS 2020

    Flight Simualtor lets you visit remote places you might never get to in the real world. Katoomba Airport (YKAT) in New South Wales, Australia is one of these places, but the scenery from MSX Creations makes it an interesting and enjoyable place to visit in MSFS 2020. Reviewer Felicity Smith found it to be a great value if you enjoy small and challenging airports.

    Review: Taimodels - Keflavik Int'l Airport For X-Plane

    Iceland has some beautiful places to visit and starting from its main airport is ideal. Taimodels offers Keflavik International Airport (BIKF) for X-Plane 11 and reviewer Paul Mort takes a look. He was impressed by the complex terminal and little included details like the Jet Egg sculpture but did find room for improvement in some of the textures and other areas.

    Review: Aerosoft Airport Mykonos MSFS

    Airport Mykonos makes a great destination for a warm Greek holiday in MSFS 2020. Reviewer MrYorkiesWorld takes a look at this Aerosoft add-on and finds it a good rendition of the airport with the bonus of including several local heliports and other surrounding areas. He found it very immersive with accurate runways, taxiways and gates and good looking no matter the time of day.

    Review: Just Flight - PA-28R Arrow/Turbo Arrow Bundle

    The Piper Cherokee family is one of the mainstays of general aviation, so it's nice to see Just Flight bringing them to the new Microsoft Flight Simulator. They now offer the PA-28R Arrow III and the PA-28RT Turbo Arrow III and IV for MSFS 2020. Reviewer Michael Hayward tries all of them and finds them to be a fantastic set of aircraft, perhaps the best GA planes available for MSFS 2020 right now.
