• Review: Aerosoft - Mega Airport Helsinki

    Inspired by a trip to Finland, reviewer Michael Hayward sought out some flight simulator scenery of the area and found Mega Scenery Helsinki. Created by A-Flight and published by Aerosoft, this add-on is now a few years old but Michael found that it still holds up well against current standards for FSX scenery.

    Review: Just Flight - PA28R Turbo Arrow III/IV

    The Piper Cherokee family of single engine GA planes has satisfied pilots' needs for years. At top of the range is the PA28R Turbo Arrow III/IV, with retractable gear are more horsepower than lesser models. Reviewer Shawn Weigelt tries out the X-Plane 11 version from Just Flight and finds the plane to be an absolute joy and one of the best "study level" add-ons available.

    Review: SimMax.it TPM And Gear Lever

    SimMax.it is a new player in the field of flight simulator cockpit hardware, but already has some quality products available. In this review Ray Andersen tries their single engine TPM (throttle, prop, mixture) controller, which is similar to that found in Cessnas. He also tries a Baron 58 style landing gear lever. He found the built quality to be quite good on both products.

    Review: Wilco - Tower Simulator

    Aviation simulations don't just simulate the view from the cockpit. Tower Simulator from Wilco puts you in the control tower of a busy airport. As a tower controller you must safely route landing and departing aircraft under any conditions. It's a much different challenge than that facing a pilot, but reviewer Paul Mort found it to be a fun and interesting challenge.

    Review: Orbx - YBRM Broome Int'l Airport

    Orbx brings Australia to X-Plane 11 with YBRM Broome International Airpot. Broome is a popular tourist destination in the rugged Kimberley region of north-western Australia. The scenery features super detailed airport, ultra HD imagery, the entire town of Broome with dozens of local landmarks and much more. For reviewer Stuart McGregor, Australia was a new destination but he found himself very impressed with the accuracy and attention to detail.

Reviewer Paul Mort generally likes what Aerosoft has done with the scenery. He finds that the location is appealing and the 3D modelling and especially the inclusion of people makes it worth visiting.
