Taking a look at Lockheed Martin Prepar3D V3 (part 1)

cover

Last September, Lockheed Martin a bit unexpectedly released version 3 of Prepar3D. Some people heralded it as being the next best thing to sliced bread, others saw it as a money grabbing move with what should have been Prepar3D version 2.6. The reality, as usual, is more likely to be found somewhere in between those […]

cover

For the last couple of years, anybody interested in military aviation in FSX hasn’t been able to get around Vertical Reality Simulations’ F/A-18E Superbug for its attention to detail, or their TacPack module for how it brings weapons to a sim that wasn’t designed to handle them. A couple of months ago, they released both […]

KCFS Seabee: A ‘Splash and Dash’, or one to keep?

The KCFS Seabee isn’t a new release. It’s actually quite an old one. So why review it now? Well, frankly, because I only just got it. There’s also the fact that the aircraft is a fairly new release on Steam as DLC (DownLoadable Content – what most people just call “add-ons”!) so it’s “new” […]

REVIEW: Professional Flight Planner X: As Real As It Gets!

For years now, since the release of Flight Simulator X, the mantra of the flight sim world is “as real as it gets.” I know I have heard it everywhere during my flight simulation “career.” You fly your flights as close to real as you can; scenery add-ons, real world weather, real world aircraft […]

PMDG 777-300ER Review

Boeing didn’t stop improving and expanding on the 777 family after they finished the original 777-200. In the same way, PMDG didn’t just forget about their 777-200LR/F when they initially released it. They released a major service pack at the beginning of last summer, and concurrently they also released an expansion pack in the […]

Review: A2A Simulations PA-28 Cherokee 180

When A2A Simulations first announced that they were doing an Accu-Sim C172, many within their community were actually quite upset.
