    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.
