Airport Review | JustSim EBBR

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. According to Angelique “Before I know, I’ve reached the end of this JustSim add-on review. Was it fun, was it worth my time, is it worth your money Without any hesitation I say … absolutely worth my review time and worth every Euro cent or whatever your currency is.”

In other words, 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.

Aircraft Review | Hawk T1/A

Our dedicated reviewer Andy Clarke welcomes you in the world of the BAE Systems Hawk T1/A, modelled by Just Flight and Thranda Design. Is it a master piece? Is it an exclusive fighter design? Is it … let’s check that out!

According to Andy “This model looks good as soon as it is loaded and the detail immediately impresses whether inside or out of the aircraft. Inside the instrumentation is clear and legible from any distance and the fact that they are easy to read makes flying easier.”

But Andy has much more to say “In flight the model is responsive and great, though not easy, to fly. Visibility from the aircraft is good and mistakes are forgiven to some extent, in keeping with the role as an advanced trainer.”

Haversine AirFMC Utility Review

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.

FS Instant Approach 2019 Review

This time your personal reporter, Angelique van Campen, has chosen for a different kind of review. On special request, and curious what to expect, Angelique digs into the FSInventions FS Instant Approach 2019 for Mac.

According to Angelique “I can tell you that it took me some time to figure out how to test it. How to write down what I’ve seen and how it works. Once I had that feeling, the writing and explaining was no longer an issue. And at the end I say, yes, this was fun testing your approach skills with all kind of aircraft models.”

It seems she liked it and yes, that’s correct, but Angelique has a bit more to say then just this. Curious what the add-on can do for you, curious how to make your own approaches, curious in …. check it out yourself by reading her comprehensive review.

VirtualDesign3D Alicante International

Andy Clarke, our dedicated reviewer, flies for you to of LEAL Alicante International Airport, modeled by VirtualDesign3D. And guess what, it’s gorgeous, it’s as real as it gets!

According to Andy “This scenery package is detailed and of high quality throughout. There is something for everyone in that the airside detail. Activity and animation is very impressive, with modelled jetways adding more interaction, for those who want the flight experience to be realistic, and to be able to carry out as many functions as near to the real thing as possible.

Andy continues “The scenery covers an extensive area meaning flight on the approach and departure to the airport is detailed and immersive and there are many reference points for VFR flight.”

Skunkcrafts Mustang P-51 Review

Our dedicated reviewer Andy Clarke took a look at the exclusively for X-Plane 11 modeled Mustang P-51 from Skunkcrafts.

According to Andy “It would be easy to imagine that the modelling of a WW2 origin, single seat fighter would be straight forward and with limited detail and equipment. The developers have proved this too be very wrong with a great amount of detail both inside and outside the aircraft and with most of the cockpit switches, instruments, levers and operations simulated to work.”

But there’s more. Andy continues “Several useful additions have been created to enhance the flying experience together with a sound package that is easily customised and very realistic. Whilst the model is great to just climb in and fly, with sensitive controls and details such as working guns, it is when the user starts to add more detail and procedures to the flight that it can be seen how challenging these aircraft were and just how much went in to flying them.”
