    Ratty's Ramblings - Trim and Trimming

    Author Ian Radcliffe has been flightsimming for a long time -- since 1984 and FS2 on a Commodore 64. In an effort to give something back after all these years of enjoyment, Ian has offered a series of articles that will offer hints, insights and suggestions to enrich the flight simulator experience. This time the main topic is trim, what it does and how to use it. Briefly mentioned are FS2020, hangers/hangars and everything finishes up with a nice 170 mille "ramble".

    Review: X-CPL-Pilot

    If you ever fire up X-Plane and wonder "where am I going to go now?", X-CPL-Pilot provides a great solution. It is a GA business simulation that lets you create your own company, starting small and working your way up. You can do multi-point trips, sightseeing, sky-diving and more. Recently an airliner component has been added as well. Reviewer Andrew Parish really enjoyed the structure it added to his flying.

    Review: Boundless Simulations - EGNS Isle of Man

    Reviewer Paul Mort takes a look at the first payware X-Plane 11 scenery from Boundless Simulations. The scenery features EGNS Isle of Man, a British Dependency located in the Irish Sea. He found the scenery to be very immersive, with lots of little details that bring it to life. Buildings, runways and taxiways were nicely textured, and good night lighting is included as well.
