• Review: Neil's Tours - Wainwright's Week For MSFS 2020

    So far one of the best parts of the new Microsoft Flight Scenery is the detailed scenery there for you to explore. As in the real world, the English Lake District is a particularly scenic area. Thanks to Neil's Tours MSFS 2020 pilots have Wainwright's Week, a guide to the district that follows on from his versions for FSX and Prepar3D. Revewer John O'Rourke greatly enjoyed the guided tour and wholeheartedly recommends it to others.

    Review: FS2Crew - Majestic Dash 8 Q400 Special Bundle Pack

    While the Majestic Q400 is already a very advanced aircraft simulation for Prepar3D v4/v5, adding the FS2Crew - Majestic Dash 8 Q400 Special Bundle Pack brings the realism to a whole new level. The package gives you a flight crew to interactive with, using realistic standard procedures. Reviewer Richard Nurse was very impressed with the result, calling it one of the best utilities on the market.

    Review: SmoothTrack

    Pilots need to be able to turn their heads and look in different directions, both inside and outside the cockpit. Doing this requires additional hardware and software, but SmoothTrack is by far the least expensive answer, and the only hardware required is your smartphone's camera. Can something this simple possibly work? Reviewer Stuart McGregor tried it with X-Plane (it works with many other sims and games as well) and found it easy to set up and worked well.
