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!

PAULO RICARDO - JOINVILLE 2017 SBJV FSX P3D
J. C. Seixas
Basically, I feel like I'm stealing Paulo Ricardo. Why is that? Well, you get a great product, with more than 3.2GB worth of scenery (airport and surrounding areas) for a very, very low price. And this is not an amateur developer trying to make a buck with a low quality product. Search simMarket and you'll find out what I'm saying. So buying this, with such a low price, is a no-brainer even if you don't fly that much to South America, Brazil. Just do it!
TAXI2GATE - PARIS CHARLES DE GAULLE LFPG FSX P3D
Paul Leuko
Wonderful work by Taxi2Gate which in my opinion is one of the leading developers. The airport is very detailed, night textures could be improved a bit but it's an amazing airport. The most important thing... VAS is very very good. You won't OOM unless you have extremely high settings. FPS is very good. Considering the size of this airport, it's detail and it's VAS performance some other developers should really take a close look and learn something from Taxi2Gate. 5 stars all the way!
VIRTUALCOL - SKBO BOGOTA FOR FSX P3D
marcus holmes
SKBO Bogota scenery is VirtualCol best scenery to date. It is by no means a FlyTampa or Aerosoft scenery but it is still very good and real value for money. There is a good amount of detail in the scenery and I really love the runway and taxiway night lights, they are nice a bright. Hopefully VirtualCol will make this work for P3D version 4.
RFSCENERYBUILDING - LIBP PESCARA D'ABRUZZO FSX P3D
Aleksey Kochi

SKY SIMULATIONS - MCDONNELL DOUGLAS DC-9 P3D
Alec Main
Great product! Highly recommended!! Fairly priced for the amount of models included. Free liveries on website & easy-to-use convenient installer. This troubled me a bit, but if you're unable to move the flaps or spoilers lever, make sure you turn on HYDRAULICS on the first officers side, down by the center console. Good customer support. Happy Simming ^^ Tested and works in Prepar3D V3.4.22.19868
FSXCENERY - KHSV HUNTSVILLE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Bradley Banister
This is a nice rendition of my home airport. I am very happy with the product although there are a few disappointing items, even at this price. My first disappointment was the jetway's are incorrect. KHSV has 12 gates with jetways, all clearly visible on Google Earth. This scenery only has 8. This is the only major issue I think the scenery has. The rest are smaller details mostly dealing with parking spaces and probably not an issue to others. None of the parking has airline codes. A Google search quickly can show you which airlines use which gates so I believe they should have added this. Nothing breaks the feeling of reality more than loading a flight and having a Atlas Air Cargo B747 parked in the next gate. The scenery has a lot of parking on the tarmac with the gates. I don't see any evidence of that parking markings from google earth. Just as importantly, after 8 years of flying in/out of KHSV many times a year, I have never seen an aircraft parked in those locations. In contrast to the above, the northeastern GA tarmac does not have any parking in the scenery. In real life this tarmac is always full of aircraft, from small GA props and biz jets, to private or charter 737s. I believe the Port of Huntsville cargo area should also have more and larger parking spaces. Atlas and Panalpina alone typically have 2 or 3 B747s, including the LCF variant parked there at time in real life. There are what I think a lot of extra .bak and .txt files left over from development residing in the scenery folder. They don't take up a lot of extra space, but I think they should have been cleaned up before release. Lik-
e I said, except for the jetways, these are minor issues and I "fixed" them all in about 30 minutes using ADE so I would recommend this product to anyone interested in this airport. It is a good value for the money.
FLYTAMPA - AMSTERDAM FSX P3D
William Alexander
As always, FlyTampa has hit another home run with this vast airport. Textures are sharp and clean and the accompanied scenery configurator (I happen to own every FlyTampa product on FSX Sp2) allows tweaking for almost every user out there. Having a high end pc gave me excellent results, but with everything set to HD (default installation is HD), one can easily run into OOM due to high VAS - in this case, I simply installed the "lite" texture pack which hardly affected the visual quality (my FSX cfg is set to 1024 max anyway so I wasn't perturbed by this in the least); after all this is a flight simulator and I want to fly rather than worry about CTD on approach to Amsterdam! The surrounding areas are also covered which is always a huge plus in my opinion - this addition adds the finishing touches I always am drawn to. A job beautifully done! Highly recommended.
KINGS SCENERIES - SAN ANTONIO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX
Bill Brewer
Buildings are good.. However Runways need updated, gates definitely need to be updated.. currently RWY 12R is suppose to be 13R & there are couple other runways needing updated. Alot of missing gates & mismarked gates.. A gates not even listed, there just under gate Numbers. There really isn't any B gates listed anyway.. I sent them an email with a link too the actual layout gate number wise but yet to hear back from them.. The building have good texture to them & would be a really nice scenery once these updates were added but as is right now especially for pilots flying on vatsim, not a very reliable scenery to use right now.. Until it gets updated anyway..

FRANCISCO SILVA
