    Review: Aerosoft - Airport Bali

    The airport of Bali has been created for X-Plane 11 by Aerosoft based on recent imagery. The airport environment with highly detailed airport buildings and high-res textures conveys the true Bali look and feel which you can see in the surroundings. Airport Bali was created with an eye for the details and offers virtual pilots a unique experience! Review Paul Mort liked it so much he gave it the highest rating he's ever given in one of his reviews.

    Review: Taburet - Night XP UK and Ireland

    While posted as a review, this article about Night XP UK and Ireland from Taburet is more of a warning from author Rene Bruun that you need to be careful with what you purchase. He discovered too late that his machine did not meet the requirements for this add-on and not surprisingly his results were less than satisfactory. With the right hardware, this add-on should make a nice improvement to your night flying.
