• Review: Just Flight - Mosquito FB Mk VI

    The De Havilland DH.98 Mosquito was one of the great planes to come out of Great Britain during WWII. Originally thought of as a bomber, the "Mossie" ended up serving in a variety of roles. Reviewer Dale Ashcroft found the experience to be "sensational", being fun to fly and particularly immersive when used with VR.

    Review: Aerosoft - Airport Ibiza XP

    X-Plane pilots, head to the party capital of Europe with Airport Ibiza XP from Aerosoft. The scenery brings the island to life, as as reviewer Robin Tannahill describes it, you can "feel the heat". Whether heading in on a big jet or taking a GA tour around the island he found it to be a good value.

    Review: Orbx 2W3 Swanson Airport for X-Plane 11

    2W3 Swanson Airport is a quaint and unique airfield with residents living in their houses on both sides of the runway, some of them with private hangars and aircraft. This is the sort of airport scenery that Orbx is known for. Reviewer Shawn Weigelt was extremely impressed with it, and found it ran smoothly on his mid-grade system.

    Prepar3D v5 vs X-Plane 11 Vulkan

    So, which is better, the latest Prepar3D v5 or is it X-Plane 11? It's a tough call and daring to even try, but reviewer Michael Hayward wanted to take on the challenge anyway. He looks at all aspects of each sim and compares and contrasts their strengths. Do you agree with his conclusions?

    Aerosoft Gibraltar X - 10 Years On

    Those who have stuck with FS2004 and FSX benefit from the many years that developers have had to make add-ons from these sims. But how well do the older ones hold up? In this review, Michael Hayward looks at Gibraltar X, created by Sim-Wings about ten years ago. Currently published by Aerosoft, he finds that it still holds up well and is well worth a visit.
