• Review: Alexander Barthel's Little Navmap

    Little Navmap from Alexander Barthel is a freeware utility that makes navigating a breeze. According to reviewer Paul Mort, the flight planner is easy to use but has all the features you need. The maps have a great level of detail and are easy on the eye. In fact, he couldn't really find any negatives to the utility, making it a great addition to your flight simulator tools.

    Review: Wilco - Tower Simulator

    Aviation simulations don't just simulate the view from the cockpit. Tower Simulator from Wilco puts you in the control tower of a busy airport. As a tower controller you must safely route landing and departing aircraft under any conditions. It's a much different challenge than that facing a pilot, but reviewer Paul Mort found it to be a fun and interesting challenge.
