• Review: PA28R Turbo Arrow III/IV for X-Plane 11

    Just Flight, in partnership with Thranda Design, now offers their PA-28R Turbo Arrow III and Arrow IV for X-Plane 11. This highly detailed simulation of the PA-28R Turbo Arrow has been developed by Just Flight's in-house team following comprehensive, hands-on research with a real-life Arrow III, G-BGKU, with the claim that it's the best GA plane available for XP11. Reviewer Bruno Esperanca finds the claim plausible.

    Op-Ed: Was Microsoft Flight Really That Bad?

    Six years ago, on February 29, 2012, Microsoft released their final attempt at a flight simulator, Microsoft Flight.
