Aircraft Review | Netavio Business Jet CJ4

Your personal reporter and reviewer Angelique van Campen reviewed on request this brand new Netavio Citation CJ4. Brand new because there’s no Citation CJ4 for X-Plane and brand new because this is the first modeled business jet from Netavio. Anyway, you can read about it in our comprehensive review. It was not only pleasant to discuss the things with Greg, it was also refreshing to talk to a real business jet pilot.

Airport Review | CFXP Vancouver Airport

Your personal reporter and reviewer Angelique van Campen took a virtual flight to Vancouver International Airport, Canada and explored the modeled Canada4XPlane airport. It is thru that the modeled airport comes with lots of tiny details, and the whole Sea Island is taken into account. It was worth Angelique her time to review this airport and is it worth your money to buy it? The answer is simple; yes, I enjoyed every minute exploring each corner of the airport. You can read her in-depth review that not only comes with a thorough review of the modeled airport but it also comes with a lot of tips and tricks.

I suggest that you seek for a relax seat, take something to drink and eat since it is a long read, but worth every paragraph. Oops, almost forgotten. Here’s the link to this comprehensive review. Enjoy!
