Flying Pole to Pole
Having recently completed a successful flight from Sydney to Honolulu in a Cessna (see last month’s issue) I wondered what I could do next? Well the obvious choice was a round-the-world flight, but maybe one with a difference. How about a trip from one pole to the other?

Importing Aircraft into FSX – Part II
In part I, we gave some basic guidelines for converting aircraft from previous versions of Flight Simulator to FSX. Here in part II we’ll describe some of the more common problems and their solutions.

Sim Bloopers & Omissions
“Are you having fun with FSX? After all the hype and anticipation I find my expectations went sort of flat! I think the scenery is very good in some places and the planes are OK too, but some things were just left out that would be an Omission. Then there are just plain good old mistakes, which I call Bloopers!”

FSX Choppers!
“Approaching the oil rig I noted the winds. Our heading had been a solid 330 degrees and the winds were from 120 with gusts to 25. Landing on the rig would require some skill, but fortunately there were no derricks to contend with on the approach. I swung the Jet Ranger around the rig on my recon…all it takes is one wire strike to ruin your whole day…and set up for an into the wind approach, with a slight left front quartering component.”

Pirates of the World Wide Web
Glamorous… not so… Infamous… not so… There are no Robin Hoods on the internet! THEY seem to think of themselves as modern Robin Hoods, but in all reality they are just as ‘mistaken’ as the next car thief, burglar, counterfeiter or drug dealer!

High Altitude Flight
In this article we’ll concentrate on small general aviation airplanes with non-turbocharged reciprocal engines. When it comes to flying those types at high altitudes, let’s say above 5,000 ft, there are things we need to consider that we may largely ignore at the lower altitudes…

Cockpit Building Series - Making Your Own Realistic Rudder Pedals!
Rudder pedals are a vital piece to your simulation experience. Most airplanes and helicopters have some kind of foot pedals to control the yaw axis. If you are simming without them, you are missing a big part of flying. So if you do not own a set of pedals yet, now maybe the time to build your own set.

From the EDITOR..
Welcome to the February issue! This month we start off on a bit of a sad note. This issue marks the end of the eight-part series of special lessons crafted by Captain Mike Ray. Over the past eight months Mike has delivered some excellent lesson content in his unique style, and these have proved to be immensely popular among readers. I want to thank Mike personally here for his contribution and extend an open invitation to contribute more great lesson articles in the near future. This issue’s lesson from Mike asks the age old question… Boeing or Airbus? A fitting conclusion to a great series!

Now onto an editor’s note regarding a small error in a previous article on Virtual Airlines. In last month’s issue we published an article on United Virtual Airlines. Unfortunately the link to their website provided was incorrect.
The correct website link is www.united-virtual.com
Be sure to check them out. They are a great virtual airline operation!

Have a keen interest with aviation photography? We are once again accepting submissions of high quality aviation images for our pullout poster each month. You will need an eight megapixel camera as we require very high resolution photos with good clarity. We also ask that you have original RAW images on hand for us to process into the poster image. If you think your photos are of a high enough standard to make the center spread, send me an email at editor@computerpilot.com with your details. Please do not send photo files to this email address! Just a note showing your interest and I will respond directly. If you have an existing online image gallery or portfolio, please supply the direct link so I can check out your work!

Enjoy the February issue. We are already into the second month of the new year! Time really does fly!

Enjoy the February issue of Computer Pilot Magazine – The World’s Favorite monthly flight simulation resource!

fabio
very well done and unlike others I find the interior useless so for me it is complete
RKBRIDGER - FLORIDA WEST COAST BRIDGES MSFS
Thomas
One of my favorite bush trips was the Florida trip from the FSAcademy Voyager. This addon makes the trip along the keys even better. It now make the trip so much more immersive. Recommended buy if you spend anytime in the keys area.
TROPICALSIM-2 - LAJES LPLA MSFS
marcos
very beautiful airport because i grew up here in this air force base shared between Portugal and US, probably one of the most important (strategically __________) US bases because all US military planes normally stop here due being in the middle of US and Europe so the pilots can rest and arm the planes, i grew up in this base (BA-4) because my father was an officer of Portuguese AF (from 80´s to 2000´s. This airport was very well done and it is an amazing place to explore, it has a very big runway for all type of planes, congrats tropicalsim, check my YT for reviews (guitargamery)
ALFA DELTA SIMULATIONS - BAHIA SOLANO SKBS MSFS
David
It lacks details and it's not like you can see much of it in real life, it could improve in those aspects
BORIS AUDIO WORKS - CIRRUS SR-22 SOUND SET - MSFS
David
Bought this for the XP11 SR22 and it was the best GA sound pack I've ever heard. Whilst the MSFS version is not quite as articulate or wide ranging in sounds as the XP11 version, it's still an absolute must have, if you enjoy the SR22 in MSFS, and so much better than the stock sounds. I wish they had got things like the AC / fan sounds working with the MSFS version, as they did with the XP11 version.
S-DESIGN - VELANA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT [VRMM] (MALE, MALDIVES) MSFS
Jürgen
Die Bodenstruckture-
n könnten tatsächlich realistischer sein und einige Beschriftungen fehlen auch an den Airport Gebäuden. Ansonsten sehr gute detallierte Umsetzung mit fast liebevollen Details.Man sollte mal z.B. mit einem Follow me Car die Scenerie abfahren. Framerate sehr gut auf meinem PC System, auch die Seaplane Base ist gut nachgebildet.Kl-
eines Update durch S Design wäre gut
JUSTSIM - ENGM - OSLO AIRPORT GARDERMOEN - MSFS

Oslo belongs to one of their best airports! Pricy but worth every euro!
JUSTSIM - ENGM - OSLO AIRPORT GARDERMOEN - MSFS
Joern Ove
All in all very detailed, although it hits performance a bit. Also some wrong scaling on buildings. The tower for instance looks way too short compared to real life. No airport interiors, which I hope will come with future updates.
HCG DIGITAL ARTS LTD. - HUGHES H-1 RACER MSFS

It's well detailed and flies well, the developer's care is unmatched, for anyone who loves the golden age of aviation it's a great representation!
INDIAFOXTECHO - EUROFIGHTER TYPHOON FSX P3D

it was a good addon, but maybe you could add COLD AND DARK state inside this aircraft
