• Ratty's Ramblings - Short Takeoffs

    Author Ian Radcliffe has been flightsimming for a long time -- since 1984 and FS2 on a Commodore 64. In an effort to give something back after all these years of enjoyment, Ian has offered a series of articles that will offer hints, insights and suggestions to enrich the flight simulator experience. This one truly rambles, covering helicopters, flight controls, short field take-offs and ending with a flying ramble starting in Italy.

    Review: Carenado - SR22 GTSx Turbo

    The SR22 is one of the most popular GA planes of the 21st century, so it's appropriate that Carenado would make an X-Plane 11 version of the SR22 GTSx Turbo. Their version includes the modern Perspective G1000 glass cockpit, a nice selection of liveries and more. Reviewer Robin Tannahill really liked the plane and enjoyed flying it.

    Review: Aerosoft - Aspen Extended

    Aspen Extended for P3D v4 from Aerosoft isn't a new title, but Aspen is still an exciting destination with a challenging airport so reviewer Gregory A. Goodwin wanted to see how it stands up to newer products. He finds it held up quite well compared to other airport scenery and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
