REVIEW-P3D by Lockheed Martin

Mar 26 2016 08:41 PM | Article Viewed 3736 Times

P3D by Lockheed Martin A review by Marlon Carter         INTRODUCTION   No one can argue the fact that the Flight simulation hobby has transformed dramatically over the past 20 years. It seems that with each release of a Flight Simulator platform, we become closer and closer to achieving the most realistic experience that can be had on a home based PC. One of the transformations that stood out to me personally was the dramatic improvements seen between FS95/98 and...


REVIEW - RealAir Simulations Legacy V2

RealAir Simulations Legacy V2 A review by Ray Marshall           My flightsim dream plane arrived on Saturday morning.  No, not the A2A biz jet that I have had on order for way too long, this one is my fun airplane.  I am talking about serious fun, very serious and very fast turbocharged fun.   Would you believe a two place, custom tourer with retractable gear, laminar flow wing, speed brakes, dual turbocharged 400+ hp engine without any ugly bumps...

REVIEW - Learjet 35A by FlySimWare for FSX/P3D

Feb 13 2016 08:28 AM | Article Viewed 4035 Times

Review by Werner Gillespie INTRODUCTION There are a few facts in the flightsim world – one of them is that we have always been spoilt for choice when it comes to certain types of aircraft. In recent years the likes of PMDG and other top tier developers have ensured that we have access to incredibly realistic tubeliners allowing us to simulate in the most minute details the operations of aircraft like the 737NG, 747 and the 777. There are also other developers who have started to...

REVIEW - Boeing 767-300ER by FlightFactor for X...

Jan 17 2016 05:36 AM | Article Viewed 6418 Times

Review by Will Reynolds Background     Boeing had started a study in the 1970s for a heavy aircraft to bridge the gap between the medium 737/727 market and the new 747, effectively replacing the 707.   After many proposals were studied, Boeing settled for the goal of providing a high capacity twin jet that could cover Coast-to-Coast in high density, so a twin aisle widebody was a must.   The project focused on aerodynamic savings, and thus Boeing went for a cabin width...
