• Ratty's Ramblings - Trim and Trimming

    Author Ian Radcliffe has been flightsimming for a long time -- since 1984 and FS2 on a Commodore 64. In an effort to give something back after all these years of enjoyment, Ian has offered a series of articles that will offer hints, insights and suggestions to enrich the flight simulator experience. This time the main topic is trim, what it does and how to use it. Briefly mentioned are FS2020, hangers/hangars and everything finishes up with a nice 170 mille "ramble".

    Review: X-CPL-Pilot

    If you ever fire up X-Plane and wonder "where am I going to go now?", X-CPL-Pilot provides a great solution. It is a GA business simulation that lets you create your own company, starting small and working your way up. You can do multi-point trips, sightseeing, sky-diving and more. Recently an airliner component has been added as well. Reviewer Andrew Parish really enjoyed the structure it added to his flying.

    Review: Boundless Simulations - EGNS Isle of Man

    Reviewer Paul Mort takes a look at the first payware X-Plane 11 scenery from Boundless Simulations. The scenery features EGNS Isle of Man, a British Dependency located in the Irish Sea. He found the scenery to be very immersive, with lots of little details that bring it to life. Buildings, runways and taxiways were nicely textured, and good night lighting is included as well.

    Review: Orbx Dundee Airport for X-Plane

    Orbx adds the third biggest airport in Scotland to the X-Plane 11 landscape with their version of Dundee Airport (EGPN). Reviewer Stuart McGregor found the airport had many of the details and little touches that Orbx is well known for. He considers it a keep that he will enjoy visiting again.

    Review: DC Scenery Design - SNPJ Patrocinio Airport

    It's nice to see designers trying the new Microsoft Flight Simulator and here we take a look at SNPJ Patrocinio Airport in Brazil from designer DC Scenery Design. It's a fairly simple airport, but also very inexpensive. Reviewer Neil Birch finds flying there an enjoyable experience, with good models and textures and a good fit into the surrounding scenery.

    Where in the World Feature 127

    After a short break, the Where In The World series challenge from Ron Blehm continues. Last month's destination proved to be challenging, with not many right answers. This destination is a "Spa". Can you figure out where it is? We're looking forward to some MSFS 2020 screen shots to go with your answers.

    Skysong Soundworks: A NOTAM About Audio/Legacy Audio In MSFS 2020

    Like many developers, Skysong Soundworks has been trying to adapt to creating add-ons for the new Microsoft Flight Simulator. As a specialist in sound, the lack of adequate details in the current SDK have prevented doing anything more than a little experimentation. To be clear, current products do not work with MSFS 2020 but it is hoped that new ones will be possible in the future.
