Pilot’s Guide to the Netherlands
Francois Dumas talks about what’s available to virtual pilots for flying in his home country of the Netherlands. While there are not a lot of add-ons available for this part of the world, there is certainly plenty of interesting things to see!

Lighter than Air in Xplane
Feeling a bit bloated? Perhaps a does of hot air was the cause? Chuck Bodeen takes a look at lighter than air aircraft modelling in X-Plane this month, as well as a good explanation of the physics behind buoyant lift, and what add-ons are currently available for the sim in the airship class.

“You Have Control”
Thought you and another simmer across the world couldn’t fly the same aircraft in a pilot/co-pilot setup over the internet? Think again. New software now available makes this a reality. Peter Dodds has the scoop on this exciting new form of virtual flying…

Who’s In Control?
In our ongoing series on Air Traffic Control positions, this month we take a look at the most noticeable position at the airport, the Tower Controller.

Aircraft Workshop Part 1
Peter Stark begins the first of two articles exploring the aircraft.cfg file, a file that you can modify to enhance and change the way your aircraft looks and flies.

Mud Moving in the Viper: 101
Attention Falcon 4: Allied Force fans… Are you baffled by the process and mechanics of air-to-ground attack in the F-16? Or perhaps your release-to-hit ratio is not as good as it could be. Relax! Mike Glynn will show you how to hit those targets accurately just about every time in this multi-series lesson beginning this issue.

Round Robin Adventures
In a vector off the normal flight path, Al Pelletier presents a special Round Robin highlighting a one way flight from Amsterdam to London Heathrow utilizing the knowledge from a real world KLM airlines 767 captain!

Hardware Corner
This issue we have a very healthy dose of hardware reviews, ranging from the latest power supply units to the wildest-looking PC case we have come across yet. Throw in some high speed memory, a fancy mouse, a super-fast CPU and some earphones with built-in sound card and you have a roundup of some very cool technology for your flight simming needs.

Freeware Frenzy
More great freeware to try in your sim

From the EDITOR..
Welcome to the December issue of Computer pilot magazine, the final issue of 2005. This year we had a relatively quiet year in terms of major new flight sim releases with, most notably, the absence of the next edition of Microsoft Flight Simulator being a standout news item. Considering that I am writing this column on the last day of October, I guess there is still time for a last minute surprise from the Microsoft team, however, all indicators suggest a 2006 release date for the next version of the popular sim program. Time will tell of course. For the combat fans, the recent release of Falcon 4: Allied Force reinforced the already strong roots of this hardy evergreen. Austin Meyer’s X-Plane product continued to evolve as we would have expected, and there appeared to be a huge growth in commercial offerings of flight deck and avionics hardware systems, which many simmers jumped at the chance to purchase, and which no doubt lightened their cash loads significantly.

We saw the usual round of global flight sim conventions and real world airshows which helped spread word of the flight simulation hobby and community to more people around the world. If anyone thought this hobby was on a downward trend, a quick look at the interest generated among the general public by the latest line of simulators, add-ons and hardware being displayed surely did suggest otherwise.

As we say goodbye to 2005 and think back over some of the achievements and advances made to our hobby over the last twelve months, we look forward with excitement to what we can expect to see over the next 12 months as we welcome in the new year.`

Computer Pilot will be there to cover all the latest advancements, the latest products and will again deliver another 12 issues of useful flight sim information to enhance and compliment your virtual air time.

See you next year!

An update to my previous review: The taxiways have been updated to their current configuration. Well done, No Limit Sky! Updating my review to 5 stars.
FLIGHT SIMULATOR INNOVATIVE ADDONS - FIRST OFFICER NEXT PMDG 737 MSFS

Works as advertised, may take a little while to get FSUIPC7 Wasm to kick in but after it does it is very impressive.
DEVINCI - KOBE AIRPORT MSFS
FUMIHIKO
It is wonderful that every detail is carefully made. I hope you will continue to build local airports in Japan. I will definitely buy it.

Good job! It is wonderful that every detail is carefully made. I hope you will continue to build local airports in Japan. I will definitely buy it.
MOKUI - PASI SITKA AIRPORT - MSFS
Denny
Wonderful add-on! I visited Sitka (by boat) a few years ago and this really enhances the area. The airport looks great, and the bridge and harbor models really flesh out the town. Would be cool to see a few of the local landmark buildings and park details added just to flesh out an already awesome package, but there's way more than enough here to justify the price now! Highly recommended for Alaska fliers.
SKYLINE SIMULATIONS - KROA ROANOKE MSFS
Les
Performance is not good on my system. The terminal seems to swallow up the framerates. The ground textures look like a chess game around the terminal and taxiways. An update is sorely needed.
BIJAN HABASHI - 4 SEASON PACK V7.2 - MSFS
Mark
Was a big fan of this product when it first came out. However, has not been updated in a long time and is now causing performance problems with some of latest sim releases. Really hope they don't abandon this product.
FLYSIMWARE LLC - CESSNA 414AW CHANCELLOR MSFS
Ricardo
By far my favourite GA aircraft for MSFS to date. Loving the details and performance of this plane. Sound is awesome and the different cockpit variants are cool too. Got myself both GTN750s just because of this beautiful plane!
SWISSMILSIM - DE HAVILLAND VAMPIRE DH-100 MSFS
Charles
One piece of information concerning the commentary on the texts in the cockpit of the Vampire: Switzerland being a quadrilingual country, the choice of inscriptions in the cockpit of military aircraft from the 1940-1990 period was delicate. The German-speaking majority did not want to impose itself too much! And as it was the time of the Second World War, making a distinction with the German neighbour was probably important. As a result, all military aircraft had French cockpit markings (with some exceptions on later instruments). The SwissMilSim Vampire being a faithful reproduction of the aircraft of the time, the texts are in French. As for completing with the original English versions with faithful instrumentation-
s, SwissMilSim has done so in FSX and P3D versions with little sales success!
