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!

DOUBLE T - ABU DHABI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT OMAA MSFS
Ghazi
The airport terminals look nice but night lighting isn't great. Especially with the old terminal. The main tower has no night lighting at all which is a let down. Ill definitely rate it a 5 if the night lighting is fixed
BEAUTIFUL MODEL OF THE WORLD - VALENCIA MANISES LEVC MSFS
Julius
Overall very good airport. Love the details. Only a 4 Star review because of the jetways not working. Only the stairs work. But at least at all Parkingspots. Hope this can be fixed in the future.
SOUTH OAK CO - FS BIRDS - NORTHEAST USA MSFS
David
This does exactly what it promises: adds birds. And a lot of them, too. The only caveat: birds are not large compared to aircraft. It's hard to spot them unless you know what you are looking for, and have good eyesight. As such, this is a probably a more useful product for people who fly low & slow, or who fly helicopters.
MODEL INSTRUMENTS - KAI TAK 1998 THE LAST DAYS ARE BACK MSFS
Mickey
It is a wonderful airport and I am happy that it work with SamScene3D's Hong Kong scenery, except airport name wrong and incorrectly using Simplified Chinese , which it should be "香港啟德國際機場" in Traditional Chinese. Che-

BEAUTIFUL MODEL OF THE WORLD - VENICE MARCO POLO - MSFS
Matthew
This developer's work is amazing. Good quality textures and FPS friendly. ILS works perfectly.
LATINVFR - AIRPORT JETWAY PRO MSFS
Axel
Stunning looking jetways with infernal sound effects, great night lighting and the best: the jetways will also be used to replace the boring Asobo jetways on their handcrafted airports. Perfect for Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Nice etc....
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - UUEE MOSCOW SHEREMETYEVO MSFS
Дмитрий
Особо порадовало, что было уделено особое внимание проработке летного поля: все то, что видит пилот. Отличная работа!
INDIAFOXTECHO - T-45C GOSHAWK - MSFS
Thomas
Flies well, but there is one thing that is impossible to overlook. The external engine sounds are absurd. It sounds like a vacuum cleaner.
TERRAPEARL STUDIOS - MOLOKAI AIRPORT HAWAII - MSFS
Harrison
Amazing rendition of the airport, especially for the price compared to competitors. However, the ground textures do leave a lot to be desired in terms of resolution. The ground markings (paints) are very blurry, especially on ground level when taxiing. The-
re is also currently a fault where the grass appears to grow over the taxiway where A and C intersect.
SKYTK - THE PEARL TOWER HONG KONG MSFS
Alex
Perfect! It's just like in the movie, Animation design all perfect, even the height! The only mistake is the brightness too high! For the perfect rest!
