Carenado C90B X-Plane 11 Review

Your personal reporter Angelique van Campen is pleased to offer you her in-depth review of the Carenado C90B King Air for X-Plane 11.

According to Angelique “Did I like the C90B King Air for X-Plane 11? Yes, but to be honest I did like the same model already for X-Plane 10, so that’s not really new to me. Overall a nice, not too far away, test flight for this C90B to LSZH using the Garmin equipment and although the installed Garmin GNS 430 is default X-Plane stuff, the installed/modelled Auto Pilot is nice to operate and does its work.”

To find that out it’s time to reads her exclusive review, right here at X-Plained. Enjoy!

Review Carenado Grand Caravan

Our dedicated reviewer Andy Clarke takes a look at the Carenado Cessna C208B Grand Caravan for X-Plane 11. As a dedicated X-Plane 11 reviewer, Andy tries to find out all the ins and outs of this modeled aircraft.

According to Andy “A really interesting model which is highly detailed and clear. The numerous variants and loads options mean that this package feels like more than just one aircraft due to the different responses in flight and the change between passengers and cargo. There is so much to interact with in this model that the pilot can simply fly and enjoy the experience or become totally immersed in a fully realistic flight.”

Andy continues “The aircraft has similarities to the Cessna 172 in terms of the cockpit and systems and makes it quite easy to learn whilst it differs enough to have its own challenges. The various configurations and liveries allow for many different flights and experiences. The detail inside and outside the aircraft is authentically reproduced and makes the use of this model all the more interesting.”.

Wilson Classics Douglas DC-8 Series Review

Back to the good old days … back to a great name in history … Douglas Aircraft Company.

On behalf of Wilson Classics, we’re pleased to offer you an in-depth review of the Wilson Classic Douglas DC-8 Series for X-Plane 11. Although your personal reporter Angelique van Campen goes on holiday for a couple of weeks, she wanted to finish part I of this great aircraft. Part I means that the whole aircraft package will be discussed except for the xCIVA INS Add-on integration. That will be discussed in part II including a test flight while using the INS.

What else can she say “I personally like old-fashioned aircraft, so I like the FJS 737 Classic, FJS 727, the Rotate MD80 and these Michael Wilson DC-8 models. And from a distance the DC-8 looks very realistic!”

Time for the review. Check out this comprehensive DC-8 Series Wilson Classics review link.

vFlyteAir Piper Twin Comanche Review

On behalf of Andy Clark, one of our dedicated reviewers, X-Plained.com is pleased to inform you that Andy has reviewed the vFlyteAir Piper PA-30 Twin Comanche for X-Plane 11.

According to Andy “This model allows X-Plane to be used in a large variety of levels. Visually it is very impressive with clear, sharp graphics and impressive attention to detail. The sounds supplied are realistic and help immerse the user in the whole experience. This is a great aircraft to simply get in and fly and allows the user to appreciate the scenery and effects created within X-Plane.” but Andy has much more to say.

Andy continues “For the new pilot the handbook is very helpful with good clear diagrams of the instrumentation aided by labelling of many instruments by hovering the mouse. On screen warnings and advice are also there to help but the aircraft can simply be flown if required.”

Review Carenado Shrike Aero Commander

Andy Clark, one of our dedicated reviewers, dives into the “Carenado Shrike Aero Commander” world.

It will be a great and thorough ride, I can promise you. According to Andy “This detailed model creates a very realistic and immersive experience. The attention to detail in terms of the interior, exterior and instrumentation of the aircraft is very impressive. The amount of interaction with the model and its equipment allows this aircraft to be used from a basic flight simulation aircraft to fly within X-Plane up to a model representing all facets of flying.”

Andy continues with “The reflections, lighting and shadows on the aircraft add to the realism and the fight experience itself it thoroughly enjoyable. Carenado have cleverly produced a model that flies well, provides a challenge and captures the character of this older aircraft whist integrating the opportunity for the pilot to fully interact with all aspects of a flight.”

But Andy has so much more to tell. Enjoy Andy’s comprehensive review of the Carenado 500s Shrike Aero Commander.

Airfoillabs C172SP Review

Your personal reporter Angelique van Campen goes back to her GA roots; exploring, flying and testing the Airfoillabs Cessna C172SP Skyhawk. She rents this X-Plane 10.51 and X-Plane 11 model at KJGG and makes a IFR flight from EHBK to ELLX. By the way; her overall impressions are based on using X-Plane 11 as flight simulator platform.

And, is it fun? Is it worth the model?
Angelique concludes that the Airfoillabs C172SP is worth every penny although some external and internal weathering would be a bit more realistic.

Knowing this, the rest of the model and the implemented features is overwhelming, even with her real C172 experience.

You’re curious what she has to say about it and how she felt the aircraft flies? Then there’s an absolute need to read her comprehensive Airfoillabs review.
