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!

AEROSOFT - AIRBUS A318/A319 FSX P3D (DOWNLOAD)
Tyler Choo
An amazing simulator for those who want a realistic aircraft, but not so realistic to the extent of products like PMDG. This aircraft is good for getting the hang of what flying an aircraft is really like, without too much to take care of as one person, because aircraft are usually handled by 2 people.
TAKEFLIGHT INTERACTIVE - AIR ALASKA FSX P3D
Clay Tobias
What a pleasant surprise from some ex-Aces developers for bush pilots running Prepar3D 2.5 or FSX. You are based northeast of Anchorage at Birchwood airport in Chugiac, Alaska. Initially, your stick and rudder skills will be put to the test with a lawn mower engine and sticky, fat tundra tires... and later in a Beech Baron twin. If you have the A2A Piper Cub it fits in seamlessly and if you don't the default cub is used. Works with FTX Southern Alaska or Global/Vector or UTX/GEX or default. The-
re are some rough edges hear and there but the developers have an open, friendly and responsive forum and are actively fixing whatever bugs and nits that get discovered by the intrepid few. Though the missions tend to be short they're well worth the $15. I look forward to more from Takeflight soon.
TAXI2GATE - SEATTLE-TACOMA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT KSEA FSX P3D P3DV2
Kevin Collins
Taxi2Gate has really impressed me with this scenery. Extremely well-done KSEA and a performance marvel. Keep it up guys, you're now competing with the best of them!
TAXI2GATE - SEATTLE-TACOMA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT KSEA FSX P3D P3DV2
GW Kranenbarg
T2G becomes more and more my favorite scenery developer. They have done again a great job with KSEA. Very detailed scenery, still very performance and VAS friendly. Terminal interiors are also very well done with superb reflections on the windows.

AEROSOFT - GREENLAND - NUUK X FSX P3D (DOWNLOAD)
Jimmy McCorkle
This scenery is beautiful both day and night. There is a lot of attention to detail with this package, the color of the buildings in the city looks fantastic when flyingt over at dawn or dusk. The AI traffic is well done, there are many custom vehicles, the more you explore this scenery, the more details you find. The landclass upgrade is nice too, and it covers a 40nm radius around the airport. FSDG keeps making better and better scenery.

What more can I add to the reviews here except this absolutely blows me away!
FLYTAMPA - SYDNEY
William Alexander
Finally!!! Being a Perth resident, I fly through Sydney regularly. I had been using Sydney Professional (not too good at all) and was hoping someone would create this magnificent airport - voila...FlyTamp-
a comes to the rescue with all their amazing glory. This airport is simply outstanding. 5 stars with no reservation! T-
hank you!!!!
RC-DESIGN - ESGG GOTHENBURG/LANDVETTER -FSX
Maarten Franken
I'm glad there's finaly a Göteborg scenery, but unfortunately that's the only thing that makes this addon special. If there was anything else for Göteborg, and I mean ANYTHING that would work in P3D I wouldnt even think of buying this one. I already heard people compare it to FS9 quality graphics, but in my opinion they give it too much credit. Runway and taxiway textures are okay, building textures are about half reasonable, but surrounding textures like parking lots and such are outright awful... And you could consider the price isnt too bad, but I've seen way better scenery for half the price, or even less. A 'Hell Yeah!', because we finaly get Göteborg scenery, but a huge disappointment considering the quality is even awful if it would've been a 10 year-old product.
