• 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.

    Review: Boundless Simulations - EGNS Isle of Man

    Reviewer Paul Mort takes a look at the first payware X-Plane 11 scenery from Boundless Simulations. The scenery features EGNS Isle of Man, a British Dependency located in the Irish Sea. He found the scenery to be very immersive, with lots of little details that bring it to life. Buildings, runways and taxiways were nicely textured, and good night lighting is included as well.

    Review: DC Scenery Design - SNPJ Patrocinio Airport

    It's nice to see designers trying the new Microsoft Flight Simulator and here we take a look at SNPJ Patrocinio Airport in Brazil from designer DC Scenery Design. It's a fairly simple airport, but also very inexpensive. Reviewer Neil Birch finds flying there an enjoyable experience, with good models and textures and a good fit into the surrounding scenery.

    Where in the World Feature 127

    After a short break, the Where In The World series challenge from Ron Blehm continues. Last month's destination proved to be challenging, with not many right answers. This destination is a "Spa". Can you figure out where it is? We're looking forward to some MSFS 2020 screen shots to go with your answers.

Tony has nearly 4000 hours flying the reviewed aircraft and so shares the history of the plane as well as his personal history with it, before delving into reviewing the X-Plane version, which he finds to be superb.
