• Review: Virtavia - Handley-Page Hampden v2

    One advantage of FSX being around for so long is that even the less well-known aircraft get modeled. One example is the Handley-Page Hampden for FSX from Virtavia, a British bomber that was important in the early years of WWII. Though now an older model, reviewer Peter Watkins still found a lot to like--enough so that he even has created several repaints of his own.

    Review: REX SkyForce 3D

    REX SkyForce 3D is one of those products that will literally change your world. Well, your flight simulator world anyway. Used with Prepar3D v4 as reviewer Ray Andersen did (it also works with FSX), it changes the sky around you, the weather, clouds, lightning, even the moon so that everywhere you fly things look more realistic. It offers a tremendous set of controls, something to really excite the weather geek but any flightsimmer will enjoy the improved look.

    Diversionary Tales

    In the flight simulator world we can choose our weather, time of date, season and so on and take the exact flight we want. In the real world--things happen. Real world pilots of course do plenty of flight planning but events can occur that throw off the best plans, sometimes ending up with the plane landing somewhere other than intended. Airline captain Tony Vallillo shares several "diversionary tales" from his long career.
