Chris Palmer (of Angle of Attack) and Nick Churchill (the ‘Screenshot Artist’) are among the many fans of FSAddon’s Plum Island airport by Bill Womack. So much so that they figured they’d want to review it and tell you about it. It has become a wonderful story, with equally wonderful screenshots to reinforce the words! Read all about Plum Island here, and purchase it from simMarket when done!

I had to look at my calendar and check the date first. But then – the author of this freeware Glider is known for his “short” Gliders. Does David Rowberry have something against elegant tailbooms perhaps? Rewind… I was browsing through Avsim recently and discovered another freeware glider by David Rowberry. If you have not heard of this gent and you are a glider fan and you are flying FSX, then you are missing a delightful experience. David has made a niche for himself as a maker of “flying wings”.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No! It’s a Bell-Agusta BA609 Tiltrotor. Seen only at air shows and other “Public relations” events over the past few years, the Tiltrotor was recently released into the sim skies by Wilco Publishing. Due for civilian certification in 2010, this new aircraft is set to revolutionise quite a few niches in the aerospace scene in coming years. About the only niche safe from this proven concept will be the large mass transit systems (commercial airliners) that pack more than a dozen passengers into their tubes. Wholly intrigued by this “float like a…

Digital Aviation recently released their Fokker 100 regional jet-liner into the sim-world and our colleagues over on the simFlight German network reviewed this plane in some detail. Just for us, they translated their review into English and passed the transcript over. It took quite some time for the Digital Aviation Fokker to be released to the market. At the beginning of October the first service pack corrected a few minor bugs. Still missing the virtual cockpit, our test team Broder Illing, Ingo Voigt and Oskar Wagner will find out if this simulation can earn its points. We think you’ll like…

A new old aerobatic biplane has hit the streets folks, and your favourite neighbourhood Eagleskinner has taken it upon himself to give this Little plane the once over – and maybe even twice, thrice and more. Those who know me, know of my love, affection and experience for and with the Christen Eagle freeware plane that was made by Long Island Classics for FS9. As probably one of the maddest, most addicted aerobatic biplane drivers who cares to admit to it, it is a matter of honour that I take to the air in this new plane for FSX, after…

A new old feature has just been given a second lease of life on the simFlight front page. If you scroll down and watch the right hand side of the page, you’ll now see a direct link to the simFlight reviews library. Some people were missing the chance to find out more about the software addon they were going to buy from the shop and had difficulties finding a review. Well… we hear! Now, whenever you want to finds out if a product will suit your needs, simply click on the reviews link – maybe. At the moment we need…

Screenshotartist.co.uk would like to present their latest review, covering the Captain Sim Boeing 757 package for FSX.

Dudley Henriques, well-known for his many reviews, previews and other involvements in the flightsim world, has been helping the Sabre crew with insight and expertise during their development. Dudley ALSO wrote a review of the Sabre-under-development some time ago. Now that the beautiful model is out in the open, lets publish Dudley’s words on the subject. Remember, this is a freeware product, so be amazed!

The F-16 is one of the most known jet fighters in the world. It’s agile, fast and very reliable. Many airforces around the world are equipt with this wonderful flying machine. And soon FSX pilots will be able to take to the virtual skies in the Aerosoft F-16 Fighting Falcon X, which will be available for purchase later today. One of our reviewers, Johan Peeters, has had the, and i quote, honour, to preview this product. As you’ll be able to read in his preview, there is nothing you won’t like about this, even it’s relatively low price shouldn’t keep…

We are publishing a series of reviews originally written for and published in PC Pilots Ireland Club quarterly ‘PC Pilot’ magazine. We thank their president and friend Terry McGee as well as the reviewer for the opportunity. This Brussels 2007 Dreamfactory Studio scenery review was written by John Melville and first published in the September 2007 issue of PC Flight Magazine: Brussels National airport is located to the Northeast of Brussels city just on the edge of the city limits in the district of Zaventem (which gives it its alternative name, strangely enough, of Brussels Zaventem). Not to be confused…
