    I was thrilled to see that Orbx were releasing this Airport. But I've held off purchasing it due to posts much like this. It seems Orbx rushed this product out the door to ensure it was released...

    Those that are saying they "wont pay", I beg to differ. I'd suggest that once released, those same people will be fighting each-other to get it.

    A lot of money was/is spent on "addons" for flight...

    I made this jump when I built myself a new System last year. I've only loaded FSX a hand full of times. I'm finding myself flying on XPv11 almost exclusively (albeit, I have much to learn). I quite...

    I didn't know there were any off set ILS Approaches in FSX. Do you have many scenery addons installed? Some modify the NAVAID data within FSX and you can have these kind of results. There is an...

    The engine is effectively discharging compressed air.

    Very basic description; but when an engine is "spooled up" it compresses more air than is required at that particular point (this requirement...

    If you're using "real weather", either from within FSX or a weather add on, the pressure setting does change. This happens in the real world.
