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 form of the 777-300ER, the biggest and baddest variant of the family. This expansion is what this review is all about.

When A2A Simulations first announced that they were doing an Accu-Sim C172, many within their community were actually quite upset. After all, with the exception of the B377 that started the whole thing off and the later Piper J3 Cub, all of the Accu-Sim models have been warbirds. That’s what the community wanted, even demanded. In the clear light of day, however, the C172 was very much a hit. Many of the “warbird-only” fliers are now flying, shock horror, a modern GA ‘Spam Can’. Even worse, they’re enjoying flying a modern GA ‘Spam Can’. More to the point, it also…

Complex aircraft like the Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 are flown with a two person cockpit crew. In FSX and P3D we don’t have that luxury and are required to take on the duties of both, a scenario that is not very realistic when you look at real world operations. A company by the name of FS2Crew has endeavoured to change that for specific aircraft. Here is one of their stated goals. “Our line of Airline Flight Crew Simulations are aimed at home users who wish to simulate realistic multi-crew airline flying using Microsoft Flight Simulator.” The Majestic Dash 8 Q400…

One of the things that parents with young children learn very quickly is rhyming story books. Lots of them. Whether it’s a scarf for a giraffe, a cat in a hat or a goat in a boat, there’s apparently an unwritten rule that all children’s stories must rhyme. But what’s that got to do with a review of an off-road driving game? Well the answer to that is simple. The following is a quote from one of our kids’ favourite stories; This is a sheep driving home in a jeep. “Get out of the way”, he yells, with a beep.…

The Boeing 737 series aircraft is a short to medium-range twin-engine narrow-body jet airliner that also happens to be the best-selling jet airliner in the history of aviation. Milviz has chosen to recreate the 737-200c variant that originally entered service in April of 1968. In total 1010 of the 200s were built. The 737-200c (Convertible) allowed the conversion between passenger and cargo use. An interesting capability of the 737-200, which is not shared with any other similarly-sized jet aircraft, is its ability to operate from unimproved or unpaved landing strips, such as gravel runways with the “gravelkit” modification installed. The…
