    So, which is better, the latest Prepar3D v5 or is it X-Plane 11? It's a tough call and daring to even try, but reviewer Michael Hayward wanted to take on the challenge anyway. He looks at all aspects of each sim and compares and contrasts their strengths. Do you agree with his conclusions?

    Those who have stuck with FS2004 and FSX benefit from the many years that developers have had to make add-ons from these sims. But how well do the older ones hold up?

A number of people have submitted video responses from flight 3 and we now offer a new flight to try. This time, the challenge is night flying.
