Aircraft Review | Carenado C172S G1000

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!

Airport Review | Aerosoft London Heathrow

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.

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. 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!
