VFR Flying in the Great Southern Land – Part 1
“On my first trip overseas, I found myself in an Irish bar talking to some locals. I said how stunned I was by how green the country was. And one of them said “But Australia is so beautiful! I have never seen so many lovely and subtle shades of brown.” I guess you don’t notice what is familiar to you. Familiar or not, you can experience the unique flight experience “Downunder” with John Lattanzio’s Aussie Adventures!

Marysburgh Vortex SAR
“Dan took the book and read the cover aloud, “Gateway to Oblivion – The Great Lakes Bermuda Triangle by Hugh F. Cochrane.” He rolled his eyes up toward the ceiling, “Come on Ron you don’t believe all those tales about ships and planes disappearing in the Bermuda Triangle, do you?”

Cockpit Building Series: Creating Panel Backlighting
How do the pilots see their instrument panels? Well it’s pretty much the same as we see the instrument panels in our cars, they have quite sophisticated backlighting. The panel parts are cleverly designed to only allow light through where required such as the numbers on a vehicle’s speedometer… we show you how to create your own realistic panel backlighting.

Bride of a Flight Sim Zombie – Part III
“For a freelance journalist he looked more like a washed up actor from a daytime TV show. The man now sitting opposite me had let his hair grow too long and clearly didn’t realize that an unshaven look doesn’t work well for a man over 40. If he had been aiming for “ruggedly handsome” then he would have been dismayed to discover that he’d fallen well short of the mark. “Almost homeless” would have been a better description!”

Making FSX Missions – Adding Mission Scenery
“Today I will show you how to make a mission in FSX. Got you! Actually, I am going to show you how to make your own Scenery for FSX. Got you again! In this multi-part series, I am going to show you both!”

Flight Instructor: Partial Panel, Unusual Attitudes and Timed Turns
If Partial Panel (PP) isn’t the ultimate challenge, it runs a darn close second to whatever is. In the U.S. we call it Partial Panel; you may be more familiar with the term Limited Panel — both are referring to the same condition. This article will give you a basic understanding of how to fly the plane with less than a full complement of instruments.

FSX for Beginners
Ever since Flight Simulator X (FSX for short) was published, amidst a raving marketing campaign not yet seen for the Flight Simulator range, a lot of problems have popped up globally in the many FS communities. That ALWAYS happens when a new version of this now 25 year old series is released, but this time it is slightly different!

Beating FSX Missions
If you want to be successful and win awards, here are some steps to enhance your chances when flying FSX missions!

“I Want To Fly!” – A Pictorial
“Many people have spoken with me about flying and my career as a flying student, flight instructor, charter pilot, airline pilot, and training captain (not always in English). I normally recommend that a very good starting for you is to have a look at an airport and aircraft, and then become a Computer Pilot using a PC Flight Simulator at home.”

Customer Reviews
RICHER SIMULATIONS - CARIBSKY: TBPB 2020 FSX P3D
Graham
Brilliant scenery, and excellant after sales service from Richer Simulations. I had problems installing in P3D v5.3, but after an exchange of two messages with RS, it was all sorted out. Extremely fast response on their part. Turns out I had a problem with my SODE installation which prevented the tarmac and aprons showing. Uninstalled and reinstalled SODE and hey presto! All good. Very pleased. This scenery is compatible with P3D v5.3.
FRANCE VFR - AIRPORT FRANCE PACK 2 MSFS
damon
Acceptable quality. mainly use of photo textures, low res in places. good pricing and cost effective way to build up some airports in the sim. not at quality level of some of the better well known developers but to be fair, not marketed that way either and priced well. 3 star quality but extra star for price
FRANCE VFR - AIRPORT FRANCE PACK 1 MSFS
damon
Acceptable quality. mainly use of photo textures, low res in places. good pricing and cost effective way to build up some airports in the sim. not at quality level of some of the better well known developers but to be fair, not marketed that way either and priced well. 3 star quality but extra star for price
FRANCE VFR - LFRK - CAEN CARPIQUET MSFS
damon
One of the best France VFR airports so far, texture quality appears better than some of the earlier airports from the packs. I think the earlier airports are 'ok' quality but priced accordingly, but I was surprised how much better Caen was. still not completely on par with the big name developers but not at that price point either, I think for the price represents very good value and great addon with the France VFR NW pack. 4 star quality but 5 overall due to price
TROPICALSIM - BUENOS AIRES EZEIZA SAEZ MSFS
Peter
This is a decent Tropicalsim airport. It's basic, but does the job.
PAULO RICARDO - SANTOS DUMONT AIRPORT (SDU) RIO DE JANEIRO CITY LANDMARKS (INCLUDE) MSFS
Peter
Really well modelled. Currently this is my favourite South American airport in MSFS. Great attention to detail and makes full use of the textures, PBR and night lighting MSFS has to offer. It also has some scenic and challenging approaches!
JUSTSIM - LARNACA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
Peter
Overall disappointing. Textures are not great. Night lighting is poor, except for the car park! Hopefully it gets an update.
MARIO NORIEGA DESIGNS - CAPRONI-VIZZOLA C-22J VENTURA MSFS
Kenny
Phenomenal bang for your buck with this one. This little jet is tons of fun to fly around. I enjoyed the cockpit modeling a lot, as it really does give off that strong 1980's aesthetic vibe. Fuel consumption feels about where it should be for a jet like this. Systems functionality is decent, though as with the vast majority of MSFS modules, don't expect 100% fidelity. Everything that really counts is there though, and more than just the bare bones. The flight model is fairly forgiving, though that's pretty much true for basically all MSFS aircraft. You will want to ere towards the longer options of municipal airport runways, as you're not going to have the same stopping distance as something like a 172, but that makes sense given the type of aircraft it is and the amount of energy you'll have on touchdown. All in all, would recommend. I kind of wish the civilian variant had actually entered into full production and had been a bit more popular. (Though it did see service with the Italian military as a trainer.) This must have been a joy to fly.
ONET VALLEY - PHNOM PENH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX
Adam
Scenery is incorrect, lighting doesnt exist, taxiways appear to be dirt. Dont waste your money. Default is better.
FLYTAMPA - KAITAK FS2004 FSX P3D
Christopher
If your considering the purchase of this don't wait. By far my favorite airport to fly into. The level of detail, the vehicles, the static aircraft with equipment there at the aircraft, the surrounding area around the airport--Awesom-
e. To top it off with that level of detail framerates not even noticeable. You wont find a more detailed airport anywhere.
