• Interview: Keith Walton

    X-Plane aircraft designer Keith Walton is known for only one plane, the Grob Tutor 115E.

    Review: Thrustmaster T-Flight Headset

    Reviewer Tony Vallillo offers us a history of the headset as used in aviation, going back the days of the leather helmet. Headsets improved greatly over the years and are now also available for flight simulator use. The Thrustmaster T-Flight Headset (USAF Edition) is one such set which Tony recently got to try and found it to be a simple plug and play device that worked well and was realistic compared to actual aviation headsets.

    Review: Alabeo - Cessna 177 Cardinal

    The C177 Cardinal is in some ways a rather unique member of Cessna's GA family. Its lack of wing struts give it a sleeker look that appeals to many. The X-Plane 11 version from Alabeo certainly appealed to reviewer Stuart McGregor. He found it to be a high-quality offering, with a great level of detail and well worth considering as a step up from more basic aircraft.
