The Flight Sim Round Table

Welcome to the flight simulator round table! Here we gather our flight sim experts to give their expert or personal opinion on the latest hot topics, flight sim news items, product announcements, and answers to those sim questions that are just begging to be asked! This issue we welcome scenery designer ken hall to the round table.

READY FOR MICROSOFT FLIGHT?

Except for the very sparse information available online, we don’t know much about flight and it’ll likely be several more months until we know actual details. Meanwhile, we have a few guesses that can be used to gauge the readiness of computer hardware for the new program.

BENCHMARKING THE SAITEK PROFLIGHT INSTRUMENT PANEL

I recently had the opportunity to evaluate the performance impact of an interesting add-on hardware product, and that experience provides a great case study of how easy it is to evaluate the impact on fsx performance with standardized testing.

APPROACHES TO DUTCH HARBOR

Its remoteness in the Aleutian Island chain naturally makes this airport interesting, but it can also be challenging too, especially in poor weather. We show you how to fly the two published approaches into Dutch Harbor that will allow you to get down on the ground in one piece every time.

I LEARNED ABOUT FLYING FROM THAT... PART 8

“Air flow to the engine was touchy. We were warned in ground school that low airspeed and high pitch angle could cause compressor stalls - they did. I was leveling off at altitude when the airspeed dropped critically low and the resulting compressor stall sounded and felt like someone with a sledge hammer was rapidly slamming the aircraft just under my feet…”

I LEARNED ABOUT FLYING FROM THAT... PART 9

“The united states government was on a cost cutting binge in the late 1950s. That was the impetus to close bases including my first permanent assignment - Foster Air Force Base at Victoria Texas, USA. Along with the closing, the USAF decided it was overstocked with fighter pilots. Being the newest arrival, i was chopped early...”

THE RING OF FIRE TOUR

We’ll be starting in Washington state, usa for the tour, in the beautiful pacific northwest. We’ll travel by various aircraft around this “ring”, and see some very spectacular scenery. I’ll also clue you in as to the availability of scenery packages, both freeware and payware, that would enhance the regions and airports and strips that we will be flying into.

FILE FRAGMENTATION – WHY EVERY SIMMER NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT IT, AND HOW

Fragmentation… what is it? Why is defragmentation important, and as flight simmers, why should we even care? Well, since a great deal of us are obsessed with flight sim performance and making things run as smoothly and as quickly as possible, this factor alone demands we care about how our hard drives are performing, because these drives are the very “book” that our pc hardware reads to produce the “story” we experience every second in our virtual aviation world.

A GLOSSARY OF TERMS - REDUX

Due to the popularity of the glossary of terms article in our last issue, Mike Ray is back with an expanded second part that explains more of those funny 3- and 4-letter and more-letter words that still baffle both new and more experienced Flight simmers. Prepare to take notes and learn from the captain himself.
