• Review: iFly Jets 747-400

    Since its initial release as freeware some years ago, the iFly Jets 747-400 has been a highly regarded aircraft for FSX. Its latest version offers more features and aircraft variants, including the -8i model and BCF cargo model. Reviewer Meng Yu enjoyed flying the heavy aircraft, finding the graphics stunning, the systems well documented and overall very much worthwhile for beginners and veteran flight simulator pilots alike.

    REX Simulations makes utilities that let you take control of your flight simulator and change the entire world environment. Their latest is REX 5 - Environment Force for Prepar3D. It gives you the ability to change shaders mid-flight, letting you immediately see the effects of your tweaking.

    Review: Carenado - S550 Citation S/II

    The S550 Citation II fits in at the high end of GA aircraft produced by Carenado so for those X-Plane pilots looking for some extra speed here's a good choice. Reviewer Sean McLeod found the plane to be a great value. Carenado has applied their usual skills in making a visual work of art, with the right amount of supporting documentation and enough element of challenge to make the flying interesting.

    Review: Carenado - Saab S340

    The Saab S340 is a capable regional turboprop airliner built in the 1980's and 90's with some still flying today. Carenado has applied their usual skills in creating this plane for FSX/P3D and our reviewer Meng Yu has put it through its paces. He found it to be a nice looking plane with a good variety of liveries, with avionics and systems that are not overly challenging.

    Review: Globall Art - CYUL Montreal Trudeau Airport

    Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport in Quebec is one of Canada's busiest airports and now thanks to Globall Art it's a great destination for X-Plane pilots. Canadian Patrick Putlend reviews the scenery and while he finds it's not perfect he'd recommend it to other pilots as it contains a lot of unique features and is also suitable for people who don't have the latest computer.

    Review: Just Flight - Duchess Model 76 For X-Plane

    Reviewer Shawn Weigelt is usually more comfortable in single engine GA planes, but found that he really enjoyed his left seat time in the Duchess Model 76 created for X-Plane 11 by Just Flight. Though in reality an entry level light twin, he found that Just Flight created a truly fine example of this plane, with enough wear to feel realistic and with good graphical and flight characteristics.
