• 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: Aerosoft - Mega Airport Helsinki

    Inspired by a trip to Finland, reviewer Michael Hayward sought out some flight simulator scenery of the area and found Mega Scenery Helsinki. Created by A-Flight and published by Aerosoft, this add-on is now a few years old but Michael found that it still holds up well against current standards for FSX scenery.

    Review: SimMax.it TPM And Gear Lever

    SimMax.it is a new player in the field of flight simulator cockpit hardware, but already has some quality products available. In this review Ray Andersen tries their single engine TPM (throttle, prop, mixture) controller, which is similar to that found in Cessnas. He also tries a Baron 58 style landing gear lever. He found the built quality to be quite good on both products.

    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.
