Sydney to Honolulu – Cessna Style
It’s always a long flight when you are flying Sydney to Honolulu in a Jumbo Jet. But what about flying it in a Cessna? Believe it or not, flying the route in a Cessna is even more exciting. Naturally, there are more stops on the way, and the navigation is always challenging. Join John Lattanzio for some island hopping, on a major scale!

Flight Simulator X Tips & Tricks
So you’ve bought the new sim, played around with it, and crashed more than once. Now find out some cool tips and tricks that are not so obvious to get the most out of the new sim version!

Dangerous and Challenging Approaches
The world seems to be filled with airports that are located in the oddest of places. It seems that airport planners have this uncanny knack for sticking runways in some of the most inconvenient spots for pilots, often forcing stressful approaches that require “threading the needle” among mountains and other obstacles. So let’s take a look at an example of each type of tricky approach – one compliments of mother earth, the other compliments of the complaints of those who decided it was a smart idea to buy a house underneath the approach path to a major airport!

Virtual Airline Profiles
We continue our close up look at more online virtual airline groups. Part of the enjoyment of flying with a virtual airline is in finding one that best suits your flying needs… Try these virtual airline groups on for size…

Lots of Raves. Rants to Follow!
Everyone who’s been using Microsoft Flight Simulator for the last 15 years knows the routine. A lot of hoopla surrounds impending releases of new versions, then a cargo hold of rants follows after flight simmers start using the new product. It’s that same old love/hate relationship that simmers have with Microsoft.

Importing Aircraft into FSX
The first of our specialized Flight Simulator X “How-To” articles focuses on moving aircraft designed for Flight Simulator 9 into Flight Simulator X. Not all will work however, and there are some basic guidelines to follow for success. David Wilson-Okamura has all the information you need.

Simulating Space Flight with X-Plane
Search the Internet and you will find several programs that can be used for the simulation of space flight. In this article Chuck Bodeen will tell you a bit about a few of those and then explore what can be done with X-Plane.

Round Robin Adventures
We are flying a Pilatus PC-12 for a Charter company, and today our passengers are bound for the Okanagan Valley in the British Columbia interior.

From the EDITOR..

Happy New Year! Welcome to the first issue for 2007, and the first issue in Volume 11. I’m sure we will have yet another fantastic year in the flight simulation hobby.

Who knows what the new year will bring us in terms of software, hardware and peripherals for our pastime? I’m going to make a prediction for 2007… I think the new year will see a big push on new home cockpit devices, and the number of manufacturers will increase as well. We will also start to see more affordable cockpit modules this year in the past year. Although this is only a prediction, there are certain indicators that are appearing that will have an influence on this area of flight simulation. More suppliers and manufacturers means more competition, which should lower retail prices and increase quality as the competition stiffens. New hardware and technology is now available to make the programming and use of such devices much simpler, leading to more interest from a wider range of simers, not just the tech-savvy.

I think software development in terms of sims is at a little bit of a plateau at present, but will again drive forward as we get further into the new year. The focus in the community at present seems very much to be on hardware and controllers as opposed to new software releases. Much of the developer’s time is spent at present attempting to patch older products to be compatible with FSX. As this is completed, I think we will see more new FSX add-ons becoming available. Mission add-ons will be released first, followed by scenery and aircraft further into the year.

For X-plane fans, the growth continues on as it always has, and new builds of the sim are coming out fairly regularly. However, the latest build releases are really pushing forward in terms of sim graphics and panel functionality options, something which the Microsoft line has always held dominance in.

For combat fans, the market is slow at present, but there have been a few combat sim announcements made recently, and we will be following those up in future issues, so stay tuned.

We look forward to your readership throughout 2007. For now, sit back, relax and enjoy the ride…

Enjoy the January issue of Computer Pilot Magazine – The World’s Favorite monthly flight simulation resource!

REALWORLD SCENERY - REALWORLD SCENERY GREECE 3D VOL.1.1 FSX P3D
Frederik van Weely
I had some trouble installing the scenery, but very good support from the developper solved the problem. Beaut-
ifull scenery, good framerates, will certainly buy more volumes.
SCENERYTR - ISTANBUL SABIHA GÖKCEN INTERNATIONAL FSX P3DV4
Jens Rief
Excellent scenery, and it seems as if very much of istanbul city is included. Highly recommended!
SCENERYTR - ISTANBUL SABIHA GÖKCEN INTERNATIONAL FSX P3DV4
Frederik van Weely
For me scenerytr is new, but what a surprise! The quality is outstanding and the airport blends well in the surrounding scenery. The framerate is good. Do not miss this bargain!
FSDREAMTEAM - CHARLOTTE DOUGLAS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Jarad Braddock
Performs terribly. FSDT really can't get it right...
FSDG - REUNION FSX P3D
William Allen
This scenery is of a remote island off the northeast coast of Madagascar. Being a relatively small geographic area the detail is quite good. Both day and night lighting are sharp and accurate (although the latter seems a bit overly "blue" to me). I have an i5/1070 powered system and frame rates have not been any problem (locked at 40). It's a great scenery to buzz around in a helicopter and it is close enough to Madagascar, the Seychelles and the newly finished Maritius scenery that there should be plenty to do island hopping in that part of the world. I purchased this scenery as part of my preparation to actually visit Reunion last summer. Upon actually flying into Reunion I was immediately impressed at how faithfully FSDG had captured the island's geography. I also have the Seychelles (also by FSDG) and much prefer Reunion because of its more varied elevation and topography. If you have any interest in exploring a small, volcanic island or are just looking for something a bit different, I highly recommend Reunion.
AEROSOFT - CRJ 700/900 X FSX P3D
Niccolò Steffanini
I bought this beautiful add-on directly at Aerosoft. I've been using it for some time on p3d v4 and honestly find it to be great! It's a different plane than others and in fact I had to study the manuals (done very well) and now I am having a lot of fun. I would recommend it to all the lovers of the regional jet.

TAXI2GATE - MUNICH AIRPORT EDDM P3D
rhamses acosta
taxi2gate munich performs and looks great on p3d v4 .I cant believe how crisp it looks and how smooth it runs with 60+ FPS
NXGN SIMULATIONS - CITATION CJ4X FSX P3D
J.G. Stroo
Nice device with realistic, some sharp sound. Large PFD and MFD windows and extensive control options at an attractive price. It would have been helpful if the push-buttons, like many other jets, would be lit when they are active. I may be the only one, but it is annoying that the front wheel steering (twist joystick) falls away as soon as the Citation CJ4X has landed at an airport other than that of departure. This makes taxiing from the runway to the gate impossible. Control by commands from the keyboard does not work (with me) either. However, control will be possible again if the aircraft, still on the runway, is replaced by another aircraft, even if immediately afterwards it is returned to the original aircraft. We are waiting for an update that hopefully corrects these points. Hans.
