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!

THAI CREATION - NI HAO MACAU: MACAU INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX
Sam Kalachoras
Very nice airport with a very interesting, challenging (and neglected) 54 degrees localizer-offse-
t approach to RWY16, over the sea and a last-moment left turn to line-up. I you are missing Kai-Tak and are bored of VHHH straight-in, this is a great scenery to test your narrow or widebody jet piloting skills. Frames are very good, with nice looking night-lighting and unique bridge-taxiways to and from apron.
HIFI TECH - ACTIVE SKY NEXT SP2 FSX P3D
Alexandre Gabriel Gomes SILVA
Carregamento rápido, transição de camada de nuvens suave, nuvens não somem mais ou aparecem de repente, tudo bem suave com sensação de realismo mesmo. Parabéns a HiFi, continuem assim, Motor de tempo perfeito. O que faltou apenas é um janelinha perguntando qual simulador usar, caso tiver mais que um simulador instalado, onde o processo de configuração para escolher qual simulador é um pouco complicado para quem não conhece muito de Windows. Mesmo assim, Aprovadíssimo.
UK2000 SCENERY - LONDON CITY XTREME EGLC
Georgios Panagopoulos
I wonder what's the point of creating a so beautiful & detailed addons and pushing them to the market when they can be practically unplayble for the average simmer? With a pretty good computer that runs the most FSX addons smoothly I had at daytime around 20-22FPS with a default heli in offline mode while staying still on the ground. This means that it should sink to 12-15FPS with an addon a/c online. Flying there was not an easy thing. Very unstable perfomance and a bit of lag. Don't even think to try nightime flying.I had max 10FPS with the same heli offline. This purchase was a waste of money. I give them 2 stars only for the beautiful work.

Guten Morgen Deutschland. Thank you for a wonderful and money well spent Scenery. Broug-
ht a ticket from Simmarket (20 Euros) and flown to Dusseldorf to feel the experience other Virtual Pilots opinion on this scenery and It was worth it. Simply Wonderful :-) [FS2004]
MYTRAFFIC 6 FSX+FSXSE+P3D
Michael Lorenz
Dieses Addon funktioniert nicht einer Steam Edition. In englischer Sprache wird zwar darauf hingewiesen, das es nach dem Studium des Manuals möglich sei, MT 6.0 zu benutzen. Das nötige Traffic SDK von Microsoft bekommt man nirgends als Download. Abhilfe schafft die Installation des P3D 1.4 SDK. Hier wird die TrafficDatabase-
Builder.exe in das MyTraffic Verzeichnis kopiert. Naja, die Erwartung, das mit einem Fingertipp, wie versprochen, dann auch richtig Verkehr herrscht, mit bunten Fliegern usw. kann ich nicht nachvollziehen. Eine Kaufempfehlung möchte ich nicht aussprechen.

Greg Blakley
Absolutely flawless! You can almost feel the sand in your eyes and the desert sun beating down on you. Super high FPS, incredibly detailed and the modeling is excellent. Wish these guys would do another US airport as I'm not an ORBX fan. Best money I've spent on FS in a while. Buy this, you won't be sorry.

The modelling quality is very good, But, and it is a very big but, it trashed my exe.xml. I have several in this series of small airports and none of the others caused this problem. It took me a while till i figured this was the culprit. uninstalling in chronological order all my software. then individually unchecking each area renaming bgls to turn off. So what happens is the sim loads and after a minute or two it crashes to desktop. It took out ultimate traffic and every other program that is listed under add-ons.

This is of those little (or big) gems you come across every now and then. The developers went full length to detail this scenery. It has the look and feel of the actual airport and surrounding area. I do hope the developers continue producing sceneries like this one. Its well worth everything here and the price is a bargain for what you get. See for yourself and buy it. :)
