    July 2006 VOLUME 10 - ISSUE 7 - This is the full magazine in digital form!

    Flying in the Austrian Alps
    Join John Lattanzio as he takes us on an aerial tour of the beautiful country of Austria. Flying over mountainous terrain and into deep valleys provides a great thrill and challenge to the pilot.

    The Black Art of Building XML Gauges
    Since the release of FS2004, the art of building XML-based gauges and instruments has progressed rapidly, the new coding format allowing even more advanced and intricate instruments to be created for Flight Simulator. Peter Dodds uncovers some of the myths with his tutorial on building your own basic XML gauge/instrument files.

    Pushing Air: Chopper Style
    The “helo” scene is one that is growing by the day as more virtual pilots are attracted to rotary flight over fixed wings. There are now plenty of cool add-ons and helos designed specifically for this group of aviators. Peter Stark provides an update on the latest and greatest in the rotary wing arena.

    Bill Stack’s Column
    “There must be more to flight simulation than flying airplanes, creating sceneries, painting aircraft, and talking about it. All that’s necessary is a little imagination and creative thinking.”

    Cockpit Building Series: LCD Displays
    Our series on building your own home flight deck continues. This month Matthew Edwards takes a look at implementing LCD displays for various instrument readouts. You can customize these displays to show a wide number of variables!

    Practicing for the FAA Practical Test
    There is no doubt that simulators provide a means by which to practice maneuvers and procedures for real world flight. In Chuck Bodeen’s article next month, he takes you through specific maneuvers you can practice with your simulators to prepare you for the same procedures you will be tested upon in the FAA practical test.

    Flying the Memories: Little Boy Deployment
    The war in Europe was over and now the Allies turned their full attention to defeating the Japanese. At the Potsdam meeting of the “Big Three”; United States, England, and the Soviet Union, it was agreed they would concentrate their military power against the Japanese to force them into an unconditional surrender as soon as possible. The Soviet Union agreed to declare war on Japan.

    Gender and Flight Simming
    Harold Zimmer explores some of the facts and myths about gender and flight simming in this month’s issue.

    From the EDITOR
    As you read this column, we should have crossed the half way point of the calendar year. So what you say? Well, the third and fourth quarters of the year are traditionally the more popular times to release new products to the market, so this is good news for flight sim enthusiasts. We can expect more products to enhance our simulation experience to become available over the next six months.

    Of course, most of us are hanging out for the new version of Flight Simulator, which will be officially titled Flight Simulator X. We will be referring to it as FSX in future issues, and as usual, you can expect full coverage of the new simulator with full previews and a mega-sized review once the final gold version is released to the public. Microsoft will most likely release this title to the public around October/November and judging by what has been released so far, it should again prove to be one of the top selling software titles for the PC ever.

    There isn’t much else in the way of new full simulator software releases at the moment. X-Plane is continually evolving and is really making strides, but it will not have the same fanfare as a Microsoft release as new X-Plane updates come out on a regular schedule all through the year. There are a few combat simulators coming out that include flying components. Some of them look really nice. Let’s hope they play just as well too. Whatever titles emerge in the second half of 2006, there is one thing that is pretty much guaranteed, and that is the fact that the “silly season” is upon us!

    Enjoy the July issue.
