• Review: MSX Creations - Katoomba Airport For MSFS 2020

    Flight Simualtor lets you visit remote places you might never get to in the real world. Katoomba Airport (YKAT) in New South Wales, Australia is one of these places, but the scenery from MSX Creations makes it an interesting and enjoyable place to visit in MSFS 2020. Reviewer Felicity Smith found it to be a great value if you enjoy small and challenging airports.

    Iceland has some beautiful places to visit and starting from its main airport is ideal. Taimodels offers Keflavik International Airport (BIKF) for X-Plane 11 and reviewer Paul Mort takes a look.

    Review: Aerosoft Airport Mykonos MSFS

    Airport Mykonos makes a great destination for a warm Greek holiday in MSFS 2020. Reviewer MrYorkiesWorld takes a look at this Aerosoft add-on and finds it a good rendition of the airport with the bonus of including several local heliports and other surrounding areas.

    Review: Just Flight - PA-28R Arrow/Turbo Arrow Bundle

    The Piper Cherokee family is one of the mainstays of general aviation, so it's nice to see Just Flight bringing them to the new Microsoft Flight Simulator.
