• Review: Just Flight DC-8 Jetliner Series 50 To 70

    There are plenty of older add-ons still worth using and in this review Meng Yu looks at one of them. DC-8 Jetliner Series 50 To 70 from Just Flight lets FSX and Prepar3D pilots fly one of the pioneering jet airliners. The pack includes the later versions, and all of them, with some interesting differences between the variants including two quite different cockpits.

    Interview With Austin Goudge - OpenSceneryX

    X-Plane scenery is largely built around libraries of objects and probably no library is more important that OpenSceneryX. It includes a well organized collection of buildings, objects, static aircraft, people, flags and much more that can be freely used by designers. In this interview we talk with Austin Goudge, the man behind the project, and learn about its origins, inner details and future plans.

    Review: Orbx - Australia V2

    Orbx returns to their roots with Australia v2. This massive scenery covers the entire continent, 3.1 million sq mi (8 million sq km). It has lots of photoreal areas but also numerous bridges, marinas, lakes, parks, cities, road and rail networks... MrYorkiesWorld offers a report on this scenery that he scores as a 10 out of 10.

    Review: Aerosoft - Antarctica X

    Not many scenery add-ons are so ambitious as to cover an entire continent, but Antarctica X from Aerosoft does just that. This cold southern continent actually has quite a few runways serving the research stations there. The scenery for FSX/P3D offers detailed versions of the most important bases, lower detail version of lesser runways, and improvements continent-wide. Plus as a bonus, a Twin Otter aircraft on skis, giving you a suitable airplane to explore with. Reviewer Meng Yu enjoyed exploring this new part of the world.

    Review: Wings Over The Reich

    OBD Software was very successful in creating a truly immersive WWI simulator in their previous "Wings Over Flanders Fields". Now with Wings Over The Reich they apply their skills to WWII air combat. Reviewer Michael Hayward finds that flying these old planes really immerses you in the world of the 1940's where your skills determine the results of the realistic campaigns. For a WWII simulator you won't get better than this.

    Review: Carenado - PA31T Cheyenne II For X-Plane

    The PA31T Cheyenne II is a bigger and more powerful plane than most of the GA aircraft in the Carenado hangar. For pilots who are ready for the challenge, reviewer Shawn Weigelt found that they will get a plane that is gorgeous to look at both in and out, with just the right amount of wear to make it look authentic. It flies accurately according to the book values too, letting you travel with the speed and power that only a twin turboprop can provide.
