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!

TAKEFLIGHT INTERACTIVE - AIR ALASKA FSX
Ernesto Bonet Peña
I think this mission pack is a work of love for Bush Flying and FSX missions which will make you feel you're there. In this addon you will fly a series of missions as a rookie Bush Pilot. In the first one you'll have to show your new employer that you are able to perform a short landing, for example. If you pass his test, you'll start flying missions on your own. What I really like about these missions is that they make you feel you're there. Your virtual passengers make comments related to the phase of flight and even what you are doing ate the moment (if you fly too high, or bank too much...) Your employer (in your test flight) gives you tips about how to properly taxi with tundra wheels, there's radio chatter in your company frequency, you'll receive new instructions in flight from your dispatcher, etc... It was a pleasant surprise finding out that there's an option for using your A2A J3 if you have it installed, which is great. If you don't have it, there are other options but I haven't tried them. In Take Flight forums there's been some talking about including different aircraft. I hope they make it. The package's scenery is nicely done but I haven't been able to make it show outside the missions. Anyway it is compatible with ORBX regions, which is really great because the scenery is absolutely beautiful. Another nice touch is that you don't need to start FSX in order to use these missions. There's an independent menu you can start from the desktop and which will load FSX and the correspondent missions directly without having to go through FSX's menus. That makes the process much faster if you have a whole load of sceneries and planes like me. I just wish there were more missions to fly in this package. And I'd also like to be able to enjoy the airports included in the missions as regular airports in my free flights. Perhaps there's a way to do it but I haven't been able to find it out yet. As a bottom line: if you like missions and bush flying don't look further. Just give Air Alaska a try. You'll feel like you're there and I am sure you won't be disappointed.

REALWORLD SCENERY - UNITED ARAB EMIRATES SUPERHD VOL. 1 - FSX P3D
tim kikly
This is Absolutely the most detailed beautiful desert you could ever want to fly over, completely detailed down to ground level. Its amazing to see some of the villages up in the mounains so remote but at the same time in such awesome landscape. I highly recommend this scenery, Its a one of a kind and the only photo-real for the UAE! Great Job!

SKY SIMULATIONS - MCDONNELL DOUGLAS DC-9 FSX V2
Radoslav Tucakov
After receiving alternative installer with unique key I have managed to install this nice product. And here are the impressions: A-
fter purchasing this product you will have complete DC-9 line of planes (all series), which is not the case with the other product of this plane. It is not down to the core simulated plane but it's far from simple click and fly type of products. It looks and feels great and gives you decent complexity and depth of simulation. I'm not crazy for simulated abnormal operations and all I want from classical plane in my FS is to be able to fly it and enjoy it. That is exactly what SKY SIMULATION DC-9 series offered me. The main difference from previous version is updated VC with more details and it looks very nice with all those photo real textures. You'll be able to almost feel the smell of that old classical, steam gauge cockpit. :) Great job on the interior part. Every series of DC-9 have different VC and 2d panel simulated and that makes this product even more interesting. I didn't notice huge difference on outside model but it is correctly modeled and nicely textured. I love it, and the most important thing is that you'll be able to do your own repaints since SKY SIMULATIONS is offering you great layered paint kits for all their planes. Flight dynamics are greatly improved. I've tried DC-9-30 and 50 and in comparison it with previous version they feel more stable during climb and turns. Autopil-
ot have nice old school slow response. Keep in mind that these are old ladies and you should think few steps ahead while flying them. I'm really a great DC-9 fan. I love this plane since it was the first aircraft I ever fly as a kid, therefore I must respect everything SKY SIMULATIONS have done creating all DC-9 line of aircraft, and they have done a great job. If you love steam gauges classic planes this is a great product for you and it offers much more than I have just say about it. The only thing I disliked about this product is installer problem I have and I hope this alternative one I've received from the author will become standard one in the future.

Best scenery ever! Highly recommended. Taxi2Gate has as always done a great job with this scenery.
GKS - F-111E STANDARD EDITION
TS Brady
This is an update of an earlier review. GKS provided a new soundpack which addresses my previous complaints. Gone is the overwhelming turbine whine and loud slamming sounds when wings fold forward and back. In its place is just a nice jet rumble, with distinct afterburner and a very subtle thud to provide feedback of wing fold status. This is so much better and now one can focus on flying and enjoying the plane without distracting and over-powering sound-effects. -
And talk about enjoying the plane, it has several unique features such as the bending wingtips when extended forward, to convey the sense of weight. The flight model is very believable and one can literally feel the weight, momentum and incredible speed of this aircraft. The cockpit is really well done, with an authentic and weathered look, just like the real thing. And going through the sound barrier is an absolute hoot in this plane; there is a vapor cloud and sonic boom - a real sense of occasion! Wi-
th fantastic response by the developers and the sound sorted out, I have no problem in recommending it and giving it five stars. For the price, it can't be beat.
