PUBLISHER

Welcome to the fist free issue of ‘PC Flight’ magazine.

For those not familiar with the PC Pilots Ireland and our magazine, here’s a brief history.

he PC Pilots Ireland has been in existence sine 1993, when Ian Broni and Terry McGee decided to start a Flight Simulator Club, the ‘PC Pilots Club of Ireland’, to share our interest with other like-minded people who used Microsoft Flight Simulator. Membership steadily grew with the help of our printed magazine, published every quarter, which until the end of last year, was only available to members, who paid an annual fee. All articles and reviews in our magazine are provided by our members and Flight Sim product publishers has supported us by providing products for review in the magazine. Back issues of PC Flight will be freely available on our website soon.

We held an annual ‘Fly-In’, in a Hotel at Dublin Airport at which members got together for a day of Flight Simming. We also had on occasions a guest speaker from the flight sim community or the real world of aviation. We exhibited at many Flight Sim events in the UK and Germany and we held Ireland’s first Flight Simulation and Aviation show.

Due to lack of new blood, we decided to close the club at the end of last year but continue the magazine as a free download, published every quarter. PC Pilots Ireland is now a flightsim community group with our private PC Pilots Ireland Google Group which consists of past ‘PC Pilots Ireland’ members and those wishing share their interest in Flight Simulation with others.

We welcome contributions for the magazine of aviation and flight sim related articles.

You can contact us at pcpilots@pcpilotsireland.com PC Flight is available for download from simmarket.com and our own website pcpilotsireland.com. I hope you enjoy our magazine and I look forward to comments and suggestions.

PROJECT COASTLINE TEAM - PROJECT COASTLINE ITALY + GROSSETO AIRPORT (LIRS) MSFS
Nicky
All coastlines should be like this! Keep up the good work and don't give up!
IRIS SIMULATIONS - AVIATOR SERIES - JABIRU J160/J170 - MSFS
David
This was always my favourite microlight / LSA plane in FSX, and I was so pleased to see it released for MSFS. It is even more fantastic in MSFS! One point deducted because their are no door opening sounds, and the outside sound does not blend in, when the doors are opened. If they can be fixed, it's five stars.

Finally, barbados was needed for a very long time. An accurate representation ,thank you!!
MAILSOFT GMBH FLYLOGIC - BIRRFELD LSZF MSFS
Markus
The scenery definitely has its strong points: - Crisp ground markings with good colour and great accuracy - Dynamic landing-T at the signal square area - Some areas/buildings important to fly VFR have been modelled - Nice work on the snow coverage These are important features and the developer can be commended for doing these. Howev-
er, the scenery falls short in many other areas: - Biggest let-down for me is the ground texturing. It is not at all true-to-life, the grass runway and its associated taxiways have a yellow-green texture while the rest of the grass area is much more blueish-green. This is not at all realistic and looks quite cartoonish and bad when on final during landing. - While the recreational facilities have been modelled quite nicely, the buildings themselves are of very low detail and have blurry textures with what looks like compression artefacts. This is not at all what the simulator is capable of showing and is a clear sign of porting over from P3D/FSX. - The night lighting, while being marketed as a highlight of the scenery, is very disappointing. For the buildings it means a blurry and over-exposed photo of lit-up windows, very unnatural looking and also a clear left-over from P3D/FSX. Ove-
rall it is clear that this scenery is a rather simple port of the old P3D/FSX sceneries. There is no interior modelling, no open hangar with a lively interior, no PBR texturing, and an overall lack of detail on the flying side of things. While I admire them from modelling some of the airport's surroundings and doing a dynamic landing-T, it is still a very low fidelity scenery nowhere near the standard a modern MSFS scenery can have. You need only to compare to masterpieces from Burning Blue Designs, AUScene or NZA Simulations to realise this Birrfeld scenery would need a complete makeover to be able to compete at the same level of quality. Here's hope that we can soon have Birrfeld V2!

The pillars of the approach lights of RW10 have collapsed. Tha-
nk you for creating a local airport in Japan.
TROPICALSIM - TIRANA LATI 2020 FSX P3D
Herman
Nicely done but as observed by a previous reviewer... not properly colour matched. A config menu with appropriate options could improve the product.
LIMITLESS SIMULATIONS - AEROSOFT A330 PROFESSIONAL COCKPIT SOUNDPACK P3D4-5
Christopher
It does turn the A330 into something more "pro". However I really hope Limitless adds more sounds in the future. Suchas as the knobs, the engines, the APU, etc...
YSIM - SUBSONEX JSX-2 MSFS
Hugo
It is a nice plane but it is much too chaotic in flight. the engine sound is not good and the avionics are very limited, no autopilot etc.
YSIM - SUBSONEX JSX-2 MSFS
Chandler
Updated review for V1.1 Really fun little jet. Handles really nicely and a joy to fly. Become one of my main choices because its so versatile. It takes a little bit of adjusting to the landing but it only takes a few tries and becomes natural. This update added parking breaks which was a great addition and great to see that community feedback was listened too. Currently the oxygen system also doesn't sem to work. The gage is there but you can't turn it on or off however it's more a candy feature but given how "minimal" the cockpit is, I really would love to see that added. The screen has 2 modes, the G3X which is nice for basic VFR flying especially if mostly use the default aircraft aviaonics but you also have the MGL with 3 options of display, which when activated show smoke status,any aerobatics and the G force shows and it also helps keep heading in aerobatics by showing the ideal line to keep on track.I also love the fact that when you retract the landing gear, you can see a little bit below the plane, which can be helpful to look quickly at both to see where lined up but also because it's easy to check if gear is down. I have bought way to many planes for this simulator and for the cost, enjoyment and difference this is a must buy in my opinion and one of the coolest planes we have so far with the only really similar plane being the Cri Cri jet version which I find this different enough (being small and jet powered is basically where the similarities end) that I wouldn't say if already have the cri cri and enjoy it not to get this. If torn between the two, I'd have to say I'd pick this as you will have a blast if pick this up and you can count on Y-Sim to keep up the great work. Keep it up Y-sim and I look forward to seeing what the updates and future products you bring to the simulator ???? P.S the discord is a really amazing space and you will find any help or answers to questions you may have there!
MFSG - SAGA AIRPORT RJFS 2021 FSX P3D3-5 MSFS FS2004
Giuseppe
It's not a bad airport, but the MSFS version is obviously an upgrade from FS2004 that was then upgraded to FSX, and then to P3D. The developer made an effort to add a few bells and whistles like PBR, but it doesn't hold up very well to MSFS standards. I hope it gets updated with better weathering, possibly a modeled interior at least for the jetways (which at least are custom, so there's that), better landside area and surrounding, and by the love of god, please improve that NAMC YS-11 model, because it really doesn't do justice to such a historical aircraft. While at the moment it's not worth the asking price, IMHO, I think with a bit more work it could be.
