BOB REEVE AND REEVE ALEUTIAN AIRWAYS
This story was inspired by several events; including a personal one going back to the late 1960s. More recently, Brett Holcomb of DC-3 Airways created a number of Alaskan routes relating to the Reeve Aleutian Airways (RAA) system. The more I flew the harder the bug bit, and I began some research on Bob Reeve…
 
BENCHMARKING FSX - PART V
In this installment of the series, we’ll share results from testing Intel’s new six core i7-980X processor, testing two sample solid state drives with Windows 7 and FSX, and enabling different numbers of cores for an i7-975 “extreme” processor. 
 
OPERATION VITTLES – THE BERLIN AIRLIFT
From June 24, 1948 until May 12, 1949, the USAF and the RAF engaged in an unprecedented effort known as the Berlin Airlift. The story of this endeavor is nothing short of amazing and its accomplishments have never been equaled. The effect the airlift had on the participants, recipients, and the aviation community is a topic worth discussing, and flight simulation allows us to experience what it must have been like to fly in this grand achievement. 
 
BUILDING A NEW AIRPORT IN X-PLANE: PART 1 – THE BASIC CONCEPTS
After more than sixty years of discussing the improvement of the airport in Panama City (KPFN) and ten years of work on a design, the Airport Authority broke ground on a completely new, relocated field named Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport – KECP – in November 2007. Find out how to build it in X-Plane…
 
VFR FLYING IN HAWAII
“Flight Simulator X has delivered us some major enhancements over previous versions of the series, but the best improvement, by a long way, is the jaw-dropping scenery which we are now able to experience on our desktops. High-resolution, photo-real scenery allows us to fly over our own houses, places of work and cities and view them as we would in a real aircraft. VFR flying has become much more enjoyable, and one area I am enjoying flying around at the moment (courtesy of some stunning VFR Scenery) is the Hawaiian Islands.”
 
I LEARNED ABOUT FLYING FROM THAT… PART V
Training programs generate a load of learning experiences, so I’ll remain at Webb Air Force Base, located at Big Spring, Texas (USA) flying the Lockheed T-33A Shooting Star for this next article in the series.
 
SIMPLIFIED SETUP FOR THE HOME PC
In our last article we discussed how to set up the hardware for a multiple monitor, low end, bare bones home PC cockpit using a laptop computer and your LCD TV. In this article we will discuss how to integrate the Microsoft Flight Simulator software program into the system.

DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - NY AIRPORTS V2 X : KEWR, KLDJ, KCDW FSX P3D
Zsolt Monostori
Okay, so I think it's a pity that none so far has decided to come up with a nice and detailed representation of Newark's Liberty Airport. So I got very excited when I first heard that the talented Drzewiecki-team has been working on a brand new version of their New York Airport product. The fact that it includes Newark alone guaranteed I will go for it early on. The detail they packed in this is simply tremendous. You've got two separate products, each featuring three New York airports. This one represents the mighty Newark as a main airport as well as two smaller general aviation or business airfields, Linden and Essex County. The other one embraces two big guys, JFK and La Guardia as well as the busy business beast Teterboro. L-
et's see. The two smaller airports, although small in size, are equally stuffed full of fine details. We've got all kinds of nice clutters scattered across the airports, moving vehicles and people so the whole place comes to life. The ground textures are sharp and pleasant to look at although I still do miss volumetric grass from DD products. But it's nothing more than my personal preference. At least an option to have grass would be great. As said, the superb ground textures make up for it easily so worry you not. The buildings are nicely textured too and the modelling is top notch as is always the case with Drzewiecki's masterpieces and it's certainly no exception. The night lighting is amazing, makes the pilot feel become part of the scene... if they could somehow add the smell of avgas or jet fuel for even more immersion though... On a serious note, these two small airports are very addictive. Linden has grew on me so much I couldn't stop flying patterns in my Cessna 182 - make sure you enjoy the wonderful surroundings if you do so! So far only the busy airports of metropolitan NY came into mind and it's fantastic to now have the opportunity to fly out of and into smaller airfields of the city of the Big Apple. And then we've got Newark. Very, very happy with it. As mentioned, I was eagerly waiting for KEWR to finally appear and I am absolutely satisfied with how DD delivered it. Fine, crisp textures, excellent lighting, SODE jetways and all the little bits and bobs without FPS loss. NY is a demanding area by itself yet I easily maintained over 30 FPS in two of the most complex airliners with my sliders mostly to the far right. Occasionally I experienced some dip into the mid twenties but it's not an issue and appeared to have been momentary only. The whole thing is properly optimized and balanced. On the other hand, many things can be fine tuned via the installer such as texture resolution or the presence of static aircraft, just to name a few, should you wish to increase performance this way. If you wanted a Newark scenery, you can throw this in your cart right now and you'll love it for it is a great value for money. Three airports in one, all three looking gorgeous and performing extremely well, this product is another hit. Kudos for the Drzewiecki-fact-
ory for revisiting their old NY Airports and applying the DD magic, making it one of the best buys for me this year. Strong-
ly recommended!
FSXCENERY - JACKSON–MEDGAR WILEY EVERS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Diane Orton
It's alright, works fine in P3D v4... had to fix the gates, because all the parking spots by the terminal were set as regular GA... no gates were set at all for the airport... but I edited the AFCAD file and fixed the issue. I believe a couple gates are missing, too. According the the terminal map, there should be nine gates from what I can tell, and there were only seven around the terminal building... I was able to fit an eighth gate into the terminal area, but there's really no room for the last one unless the ground markings are changed. All and all, it's fine for the price. WIll likely purchase KMOB, KOKC, and KTUL in the near future...
IRIS PRO TRAINING SERIES - GROB G115E / TUTOR T.1 P3D (DOWNLOAD)
Richard Wraith
WOW doesn't even describe it. Our cadets and staff have been flying the milvis tutor for several years now, and REAL tutors, and I recently upgraded our Sim to P3D v2.5, then installed this aircraft, with NO other addons or tweaks, and it has blown them all away. It looks AMAZING, is exceptionally detailed, realistic and the flight model of it is amazing. Fin-
ally somebody has done the tutor, properly! We-
ll done chaps, jolly good show from all of us over here in Blighty training RAF cadets :-)
AEROSOFT - CRJ 700/900 X FSX P3D
Shanard Letang
It was definitely worth the wait. Good sounds, visuals, and textures. I know there are some issues at the present moment but the AS CRJ works great. There are a few differences from JR CRJ 200, ei, the NW switch that actually moves in the AS CRJ 700/900, startup and shutdown procedures are different to each aircraft. One thing I noticed is the fuel in the CRJ manager does not produce the accurate amount of fuel at times so some additional fuel is require via taxi or holding fuel section. This aircraft is very immersive and fun to fly.
TABURET - FSX P3D NIGHT 3D EUROPE BASE PACK P3D
Johannes Butz
*I own ORBX Global, Vector & OpenLC products that I wanted to enhance with this product* It Illuminates some of the main roads in Europe but not all of them. If you have ORBX Products you'll probably be disappointed. -
I like to fly performance hungry airplanes, wich is why I opted for the "low impact" version of Taburet's night lighting. I guess if you're flying GA or very basic aircraft you'd be better off with buying specific regions of Taburet's Night 3D and if you're like me and you fly FSL A320's or 777/747s AND you don't want to compromise performance, then you're better off with just the ORBX lighting and one click more LOD in my opinion.

MAGMEXICO - MCALLEN MILLER INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Carlo Flores
Excellent. This is my home airport, so I was glad to see that it is for the most part accurate. Only down side is that the gates don't move, but everything else is good. Thanks for making MFE an FSX reality!
LIONHEART - ROBIN DR400/180 FSX P3D
MESTARI Nordin
je viens d'installer cet avion et je suis extrêmement déçu.J'ai fêté cette année mes 40 ans de licence de pilote (réel) et je fais du simulateur depuis une vingtaine d'année. Outre la finition graphique du modèle qui est du niveau des premiers avions de FS9, le modèle de vol est particulièremen-
t bâclé. J'ai testé le décrochage en refusant de rendre la main. l'avion à continué de se cabrer même à vitesse zéro ! (vario négatif quand même) jusqu'à se mettre vertical !!!! jamais vu ça ! puis il a fini par entrer en vrille plate ! le vrai (suivant les modèles) parachuterait avec un fort vario négatif en devenant de plus en plus instable en roulis, mais vous ne maintiendrez jamais le nez au dessus de l'horizon en maintenant le manche au ventre. et vous ne le mettrez jamais dans ces conditions en position vertical. En virage à 60°, à 100 km/h et 2000 trs j'arrive encore à avoir un vario positif ! incroyable. Le modèle de vol (surtout au basse vitesse) est complètement loufoque et donc à l'atterrissage aussi...bizarre-
ment j'avais vu des critiques similaires sur celui de X-Plane et la modélisation ressemble beaucoup à celui de X-plane...En conclusion, cette avion est un pur produit commercial et ne convient pas du tout à un simmeur exigent ou un pilote réel qui veut poursuivre son entrainement à la maison.
SIMTWEAKS - PTA (PREPAR3D TWEAK ASSISTANT) FOR P3D V4
Erich Berner
Every couple of years, one add-on comes along that can never be done without again. This is definitely one of them.
FSXCENERY - KPIT PITTSBURGH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Tom Richey
Great job Fernando! We really needed KPIT for FSX and this hit the spot. Also, happy to report that VAS usage is minimal without the need of removing any files. The only real issue is the Latin signs on the Jetways. Not very convincing in Pittsburgh. -
