• Review: Just Flight - Avro Vulcan

    The Avro Vulcan is a highly regarded cold war era British heavy bomber, with a unique look and sound. Reviewer Alex Dickinson has long been a fan and has tried every flightsim version available, so was pleased to see Just Flight release this updated version for Prepar3D. He found it to be a very accurate recreation of the plane, with lots of details, and a challenge to fly--just like the real one.

    Fly With That One Pilot Chick #3

    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 2 and we now offer a new flight to try. Our lady pilot has just got her instrument rating, so additional adventures will be in store in future flights.

    Review: Just Flight - Conington Airfield

    There are plenty of older FSX/P3D titles that are still worth your attention. In this review, Felicity Smith takes a look at Conington Airfield from Just Flight. Just Flight obviously has a connection with this airport too, as a number of aircraft they have modeled are based here. If you enjoy a quiet country airfield with lots of detail, this may be just the place for you too.

    Review: Orbx Orcas Island

    Orcas Island was one of the earliest Orbx sceneries, and the area itself is one of the favorites of reviewer Shawn Weigelt. The original version, though, was for Microsoft Flight Simulator and Shawn wanted a version for X-Plane. Well, that is now available and Shawn was very pleased to find that is lives up to expectations.
