• Review: SimWorks Studios - T-37B Tweet

    The T-37B Tweet had a long career as the U.S. military's primary jet trainer. SimWorks Studios brings this classic to Prepar3D and reviewer Ray Andersen takes a look.

    Those who have stuck with FS2004 and FSX benefit from the many years that developers have had to make add-ons from these sims. But how well do the older ones hold up?

    Fly With That One Pilot Chick #4

    Author Ron Blehm knows a young woman pilot in Washington State who shares her flight training and flying adventures online and through videos. His idea was that it would be fun for flight simmers to join in on her adventures, flying the same routes and sharing their experiences. A number of people have submitted video responses from flight 3 and we now offer a new flight to try. This time, the challenge is night flying.
