    Review: Shade Tree Micro Aviation AT-11 Kansan

    Shade Tree Micro Aviation has been creating X-Plane add-on aircraft for quite a few years. Here reviewer Paul Mort examines their WWII era AT-11 Kansan.

    Review: REX SkyForce 3D

    REX SkyForce 3D is one of those products that will literally change your world. Well, your flight simulator world anyway. Used with Prepar3D v4 as reviewer Ray Andersen did (it also works with FSX), it changes the sky around you, the weather, clouds, lightning, even the moon so that everywhere you fly things look more realistic. It offers a tremendous set of controls, something to really excite the weather geek but any flightsimmer will enjoy the improved look.

    Diversionary Tales

    In the flight simulator world we can choose our weather, time of date, season and so on and take the exact flight we want. In the real world--things happen. Real world pilots of course do plenty of flight planning but events can occur that throw off the best plans, sometimes ending up with the plane landing somewhere other than intended. Airline captain Tony Vallillo shares several "diversionary tales" from his long career.

    Review: Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer

    The Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer has been a very successful military aircraft for many years and used by a variety of countries.

    If your idea of the American west is based on western movies, you're likely thinking of Monument Valley. Located on the Colorado plateau near the Arizona/Utah border, the rugged terrain makes for some scenic flying, which Orbx has captured with their usual style.
