Just under a year ago, the newcomer Fenix Simulations announced an Airbus of such quality that we Flight-Simmers had mouth wide open. Because the scene has a lot of experience with the crash of high-flying announcements, the reactions varied from disbelief to distant mockery to the famous drooling when the screenshots and videos appeared. Fenix kept its word and published the A320 200 CFM on 19 May 2022 – for around 60 Euros! Does the plane live up to its promise? Michael Kalff tested it, Patrick Seiniger looked deeper into the systems. The Original Model The A320 is one of…

Halifax-Stanfield International Airport by FSim Studios: your secret gateway to North America and beyond It has been a while since I first bumped into FSimStudios. A stroll down memory lane, when Flight Simulator X was still a thing, and with Steve’s DX10 fixer and several tweaks, it performed better than ever. I remember I was desperately hunting for a high-quality representation of Toronto’s City airport after watching some steep approach footage, and I immediately wanted to give it a try myself. Apart from a few less-than-accurate freeware attempts, however, I could not find anything suitable for the purpose, until, as…

With FSRealistic, rkApps has presented a (partial) transfer of the XPRealistic add-on popular with Xplaners, reminding FSXers of AccuFeel, distributed by A2A at the time. The promise is a more realistic flight experience through more authentic sounds and vibrations of the view, later head movements are to be added, to which the SDK of MSFS does not yet allow access. Michael Kalff investigates whether the self-assured price of over €21 is justified. What is promised Actually, ASOBO as the developer of MSFS promised in its promotional videos an elaborately generated, carefully composed, highly detailed programmed, ultra-realistic sound experience … so…

Cessna or Piper … it’s like Apple or Windows … BMW or Daimler … or is it six of one and half a dozen of the other? We Simmers can now also take part in the competition in the MSFS, because Justflight put a P28 Arrow III in our virtual hangar a while ago. Michael Kalff it out …and weighed it up. Cessna or Piper? Read for yourself! The Original The Piper PA 28 Cherokee competed from 1960 onwards against the so successful Cessna 172, designed as a good-natured, four-seat, single-engine low-wing aircraft for flight schools, air taxi, business and…

Originally, the Ju52 was to be launched with the World Update VI as the first in the new “Local Legends” series, but the release was then postponed for a fortnight. Was it worth the wait? Michael Kalff writes about a premiere with light and shadow. The Original In fact, hardly any other aircraft would have been more suitable as a “local legend” for Germany, Schwitzerland, Austria than the Ju52. 1932 saw the maiden flight and entry into service of the pioneering design for transporting passengers and cargo, even to airfields that were hardly developed (“mother of all passenger aircraft”). Within…

The first system-deep jet in the new Microsoft Flight Simulator has landed, pretty much exactly 7 months after the platform’s release. We had the opportunity to test a very late pre-release version, provided to us by Aerosoft. Our claim is to provide you with solid information about addons, but in this particular case, also to give you this information as soon as possible. Therefore, we decided to try something we haven’t had for a long time: a dual review, so we can share out the work a bit. We hope to be able to contribute to your purchase decision with…

Proof to this digital evolution is Pilot Experience Sim’s Montpellier-Mediterranée (LFMT), a medium-sized public aerodrome in the south of France, handling somewhat under 2 million passengers annually, a scenery one least expects yet greatly appreciates!
