Aircraft Review | Carenado Cessna S550

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.

Utility Review | Haversine AirFMC

This time a utility review of a well-known Mac platform developer … Haversine AirFMC. Thanks to Joao, developer at Haversine, your personal reporter Angelique van Campen got the right grip on this remote CDU/MCDU iOS and maCOS tool. According to Angelique “Utility add-on programs are always fun to review. The same with the Haversine AirFMC although it’s only available for iOS hardware or for macOS. That some aircraft need to be added to the list makes sense, but the overall idea having on a remote device your CDU/MCDU is great.” You’re a Mac simmer, you also own an iPad? When you do that, then I encourage to sit back and read this comprehensive review of the AirFMC iOS app.
