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!

Customer Reviews
MLADG - MESSERSCHMITT ME-109 G-2 X-PLANE
Dominic Smith
Having previously purchased both the Flight Replicas 109 and also the DCS variant, I was really looking forward to flying this model in X-Plane. However, after completing just a couple of circuits, it was painfully clear to see, that this offering by MLADG, was far inferior. The flight model for one, is totally unbelievably at certain phases of flight and really spoils the immersion factor. The engine sound samples too, are of poor quality (even with decent headphones) and have an annoying loop. If you've ever flown the A2A Messerschmitt (which is, I think, over ten years old), or the Cliffs of Dover variant, then you'll be extremely disappointed with the sounds provided. Graphically the aircraft looks reasonably good, but this is more down to X-Plane's lighting effects, rather than the model itself. If you're coming from FSX/P3D, or even Cliffs of Dover/DCS for that matter, then I suggest (unfortunately) you look elsewhere.

Ignore my last review! I just noticed the scenery configurator which allows you to set "Animated traffic" which is off by default. Top notch scenery!
LORBY-SI - CROPDUSTER X FSX P3D
Larry Wigmore
I would beg to differ with the previous comments describing CDX as boring. For those interested in light aviation and like to simulate low and slow flight, this program has allowed me to integrate the realistic rural sceneries of Orbx with the detailed purpose built AG aircraft accurately modeled by Alabeo, some simple scenery enhancement by ISD3, altogether into a most accurate simulation of the world of cropdusters. This is precision pattern flight simulation at it’s finest. CDX integrates an accurate representation of the SATLOC litebar into the cockpit, a sort of localizer guidance for each of the passes that are required to be at the correct height, speed and track to efficiently spray the field. CDX provides the sim pilot a rating of how accurate the flying has been. The litebar is not easy to master, and for me , spraying a field is much more difficult than landing the plane correctly. A second part of the program involves treating your crops in a timely fashion to avoid their demise . This I haven’t yet gotten into yet and can’t comment. But the concept sounds brilliant. What I like about the newest version of the program is that I can designate any of the Orbx simulated farm fields as the one to be sprayed accurately. I have found you can easily enhance this field(s) with 3D crops as opposed to just the textured tile which adds greatly to the visuals. This can be done using ISD 3 ( Instant Scenery Designer) and a typical field can be enhanced for crop dusting in about 15 min. CDX developer ( Oliver Binder) is now in the process of integrating 3D crops directly into the CDX program. I should also mention he has been very helpful in answering many of my questions and is truly interested in refining and improving the product as much as possible. In conclusion, I was starting to find navigating from one airport to another as a little boring, particularly enroute. I looked forward to mainly executing the approach and landing correctly. Cropdusting is a controlled landing avoidance every pass and it is anything but boring, even simulated. Check out the real-life vids on You-tube !

TREVOR PUNNETT
I have been waiting for a beautiful rendition of Billund Airport and here it is. Fantastic detail and you can use the Scenery Configurator to see or not see the animated vehicles/static aircraft/Billun-
d village and so on. Just love it! Well done John and Vidan Design
SCENERY ON DEMAND - DRAGONEYE HONG KONG FSX P3D
Richard Chan
Such a great product, makes HongKong more realistic also can run very smooth.
VIDAN DESIGN - BILLUND X FSX P3D
Tom Divendal
It's a nice little airport! Good looking textures, great modelling and very decent performance make this is a great destination. 4 out 5 stars because the airport still feels a bit "Lifeless" to me, some moving traffic on the apron would have been great.
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - WASHINGTON X FSX P3D
Gregg Seipp
A rock-solid product. Great performance and just beautiful. My only wish is more trees. Worth every penny, though.
TAXI2GATE - PARIS CHARLES DE GAULLE LFPG FSX P3D
Tim Faithfull
Quite a nice looking scenery, but I'm having numerous issues with it at the moment. The scenery uses SODE to provide moving jetways etc - however this is not functioning properly on my system, and is causing the sim to freeze continuously. The jetways are missing, and SODE does not recognise any triggerable objects. There's no information about how to trigger the jetways in the documentation, and so far there's been no useful advice from T2G on their forums. Apart from this, I've noticed numerous texture glitches, with transparent jetways or missing polygons underneath buildings etc. I'd be happy to overlook these were it not for the scenery being completely unusable at present. If T2G come through with an update/patch to fix the issue, I will review my score!

Excellent rendition of EKBI in it's current state. Very high quality custom buildings and ground textures. Included config tool to customize seasons, apron and road traffic. Integ-
ration with Orbx Global and OLC.Can highly recommed it to all simmers for either GA or airliners.
