From his home town, Bruce Knight, our dedicated reviewer, visited the incredible Sedona area and of course the local airport, all modeled by X-Codr. According to Bruce “I can’t imagine what approaching this airport to land is like- the effects of up and down drafts, the relatively short runway with its elevation, and the slope of the runway- and what it must be like to try and ignore all this amazing geology while focusing (or trying to) on landing your aircraft.’ Want to read Bruce his comprehensive review? Then check it out at X-Plained.Com via this in-depth link.
Your personal reporter Angelique van Campen is just back from her Dutch flying trips to test something special, to test also her twin engine skills, to test the latest model from Just Flight / Thranda Design as per April 2019, the Beechcraft Duchess 76.

Our dedicated GA pilot Bruce Knight did some extensive tests for you with the Carenado Cessna 172S with G1000. Oh oh, that has been wild rides, but the outcome is a comprehensive review. Bruce thinks that “For those wanting a more complex flight route the G1000 offers more sophistication than the avionics in some airliners flying the skies today, especially non-glass and semi/early glass flight decks).” But there’s so much more to read about this Carenado GA model. Curious what Bruce has to say more? You can read the whole story via his in-depth review. Enjoy!

Traveling to Brussels or to be exactly to Zaventem, is for Angelique, your personal reporter, only a couple of hours by car. She did this to visit JustSim Brussels International Airport (EBBR) for X-Plane. It was great to see how it is made, how realistic is looks and feels. She thinks it is worth your money, but you should read her in-depth review. It gives you a lot of information about almost every corner at the airport that she has seen during her virtual walk. Check it out via this in-depth review link.
While our dedicated reviewer Andy Clarke tries to relax, he’s also curious how the Carenado Cessna Citation S550 is modeled or how it flies or how … too many questions and thoughts.According to Andy “This model is highly detailed both inside and out and comes with a very good sounds package. The developers have worked to make as many systems usable and this creates a busy and interesting cockpit environment. The aircraft surprised me with is level of sophistication for relatively small, and not so young aircraft.” You can read it all via this in-depth Cessna Citation S550 review link. Enjoy the reading!
For our reviewer Bruce Knight, KDEN or Denver International Airport it is just around the corner of his house.

This time your personal reporter Angelique van Campen stays close to home. Ok, she need to take the aircraft to pass the Channel to reach out London Heathrow International Airport (EGLL), modeled on behalf of Aerosoft. Although this is an updated X-Plane 10 airport, what has Angelique to say about it? It has become a massive review. A bit longer than expected, but that’s also due to the design of the airport itself and if she wanted it or not, Angelique had to travel a lot to visit every corner of EGLL. Curious what Angelique has to say? Check out her in-depth review at X-Plained.Com.
Once an a while there’s something that triggers Angelique’s attention. This time she was seeking for a lua utility that could do a bit more then she normally sees.
