ABOUT: As a current airline pilot and Flight Simulator indie developer, I have hand made a small selection of titles over the years, ranging from scenery texture enhancements to FSX missions.
My interest in aviation started at an early age. My first flight was at around age 9 as my family and I went away for our first holiday abroad. I was terrified. At first, my family thought that all was lost and that I was to become one of the many people who have a fear of flying, greatly restricting future holiday destinations! After a few hours, the cabin crew invited a group of us to go and visit the cockpit. After stepping into the cockpit of our 767, I was captivated. A switch had been flipped in my mind and all fear evaporated immediately. I had found my dream.

On my first day back at school my friend mentioned he had just got a copy of Flight Simulator 98. I had to try it. Although I had no idea what I was doing, I loved the game and my fascination with aviation grew stronger as the time went by. After saving enough pocket money, I went out and bought Flight Simulator 2000, which is where my real learning process began. I’ve been flying simulators ever since.

After finding the direction I wanted to take, the hard part was starting down the road to airline flying. Throughout my teenage years, I was a member of the Air Cadets. By studying hard and rising through the ranks I had gained some fantastic experiences from RAF bases and aerobatic flying. Eventually I would become a civilian instructor, passing down my knowledge to the next generations.

Once I had turned 19, I was old enough to join the CTC Wings course, based in the UK and New Zealand. The next few years had me crossing the globe on an intensive flying training course, resulting in a place at a major European airline, where I am currently a Senior First Officer, with the left hand seat in sight for early 2016.

I consider myself lucky because my simulation hobby ties in with my profession, allowing me to learn about software development while expanding my knowledge of the subjects I use at work. It also enables me to develop simulation add-ons that are realistic and accurate, while remaining aimed at the simulator pilot.

TROPICALSIM - ST THOMAS CYRIL E KING TIST 2018 FSX P3D
Jose Otero
Been a long time supporter of Tropicalsim sceneries. I go back to fs2004 and I even bought their full pack of Caribbean airports. Even thought their sceneries have improved a great deal, they still fall way short of the Elite developers. TIST is a good example of how they always fall short of my expectations. On this latest version they did not model the entire island and could not think to add lights to their light poles. Just laziness or a lack of care for their work. I echo the same thoughts for all the sceneries that I own and I have almost all of them.
HIGH SKY TECH - ULTIMATE ENHANCED VIRTUAL COCKPIT FOR SSG 747-8I X-PLANE 10/11
David Rogers
Subtle improvements to the VC, and some other good features. It won't transform the VC of the SSG 747 into something of the quality of the Flight Factor A320 or IXEG 737 but for the lost cost I paid for it (£5), worth the money for a small improvement.

FSIMSTUDIOS - TOCUMEN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MPTO PANAMA CITY FSX P3D
Peter Gordon
It's great to have such a large airport from Central America and FSimStudios have modeled it as it will be when completed. I am happy with the purchase and I'll make good use of the airport, but it gets a 3 because it's still a bit rough on the textures, the AFCAD file has no airlines assigned to parking gates (picky I know, but it's nice to be assigned a realistic gate) and the night lighting is too dim. Having said that, it's good to see FSimStudios tackle a bigger airport like this.
29PALMS / CAPTAIN 7 - EDDN NUREMBERG P3D4
Bryan Wallace
I think this is an incredibly underappreciate-
d airport. Though is services mostly regional aircraft, I will go on a limb and say it is one of the most detailed payware airports on the market. If you have the benefit of a program like Chaseplane, get out of the cockpit and explore the area. You will be amazed by the staggering detail that went into the visuals at this airport. I think I almost lost it when I saw cars driving around the rooftop level of the parking garage looking for parking. When you observe the Nuremberg sign from the outside of the airport you feel like you are a part of a living breathing world. This will be reinforced when you observe shuttle busses pulling into a parking space to pick up and drop off passengers. Though they don’t actual show passengers getting off the shuttle, you feel something like that could be coming in the future. (Hint! Hint!) That being said, this is an absolutely visually stunning airport. I am sure it won’t disappoint.

GIBSON SCENERIES FOR FLIGHT SIMULATOR - CHINA - HONG KONG TO SHANGHAI
James McHarg
This scenery is the missing link if you are bored with the repetitive sameness of the default scenery and other ground texture products that have been around for years. This scenery is as real as it gets. Finally we have a product that looks from the flight deck exactly like the real thing. It enhances the realism of the flight sim experience greatly. Note that this is not a low altitude VFR product. It is more suited to higher altitude flying with airliners or military aircraft.To really see the benefit you do need to be above 5000 feet or so. The higher you are, the better it gets. Once you attain cruising altitude, I cannot think of another product that rivals this software. I thoroughly recommend this software to you.

This the best product from LATINVFR to date. Great detail and beautiful scenery. Be sure to read the manual about mesh settings.

RFSCENERYBUILDING - LIPZ VENICE MARCO POLO AIRPORT FSX P3D
Perry Mattenberger
My first impression when loading up is that I am disappointed. The brick texturing of the buildings look like from a dated FS9 or FSX scenery. I also don't like the green roofs of the jetways and buildings that much. Apron ground textures are ok. I should have looked a bit closer at it before purchasing, but was excited to have new scenery here and from a distance these textures look ok.
