    Review: FS2Crew - Majestic Dash 8 Q400 Special Bundle Pack

    While the Majestic Q400 is already a very advanced aircraft simulation for Prepar3D v4/v5, adding the FS2Crew - Majestic Dash 8 Q400 Special Bundle Pack brings the realism to a whole new level. The package gives you a flight crew to interactive with, using realistic standard procedures. Reviewer Richard Nurse was very impressed with the result, calling it one of the best utilities on the market.

    Review: Taburet - Lydd Airport For MSFS 2020

    Review: SmoothTrack

    Pilots need to be able to turn their heads and look in different directions, both inside and outside the cockpit. Doing this requires additional hardware and software, but SmoothTrack is by far the least expensive answer, and the only hardware required is your smartphone's camera. Can something this simple possibly work? Reviewer Stuart McGregor tried it with X-Plane (it works with many other sims and games as well) and found it easy to set up and worked well.

    Review: FS2Crew - Ultimate Ground Crew X

    A lot goes on on the ground before takeoff and after landing. Using Ultimate Ground Crew X with FSX or P3D makes those operations very realistic, by adding pushbacks, marshallers, animated ground crew, tow trucks and more, all operating just like in the real world. Reviewer Richard Nurse was very impressed with how FS2Crew took the simming experience up another level.
