Pilot Plus Wycombe Air Park Drone Impression

Welcome to Pilot Plus / Orbx EGTB Wycombe Air Park.

Your personal reporter and virtual GA pilot Angelique van Campen takes you on a tour in and around EGTB Wycombe Air Park. Actually, the tour is made with a virtual drone that shows you all the ins and outs of Pilot Plus their latest airfield. Is it worth the 8 minutes to look at? Oh yes, it is, believe me! The video was made with a lot of passion and besides that, it was only possible due to the Stick and Rudder Studios application X-Camera. Although not perfect, I really enjoyed creating these 27 camera views that offer you great impressions on the modelled airfield as well as what’s around.  

Enjoy and comments and likes are always appreciated. By the way, the video was made and complied on an iMac Pro using Apple Final Cut Pro X version 10.4.8, recorded with Screenflick from Rogue Amoeba and a mix of different sounds.

Airport Review | Pilot Plus/Orbx Wycombe Air Park

Pilot Plus developer Joe invited your personal reported Angelique van Campen to have a look at Wycombe Air Park (EGTB).

Angelique jumped into her Cessna 152 and via via she flew to EGTB. Medium and large aircraft are not allowed so this was a nice test. Together with Orbx TrueEarth Britain South it was a great experience. The modeled airfield or air park is awesome. She was surprised about all the different trees she saw, but she was also impressed by the tiny details included in this airfield.

As we see often, the EGTB package not only covers the airfield but a bit more and that also includes objects, lots of objects outside the airfield fences. According to Angelique it was worth every minute to explore this tiny airfield.

Scenery Review | TrueEarth Britain North

This is not just a scenery impression, neither it’s a short review with screenshots showing you the beauty of Orbx TrueEarth Britain North. It’s much more then that, but before I reached the “wow” factor, I was many weeks further. A scenery like this TrueEarth package needed for me a different approach. I couldn’t and I didn’t want hundreds of screenshots showing you the Scottish landscape with Orbx, so another and different approach was needed. Videos!

Making a video as you think of was not the right idea so another approach was needed and that was selection several regions of Scotland, make screenshots on the flights and combine them together. Of course, I liked it, and I hope you like it too. That said, your personal reporter Angelique van Campen took the Orbx plane to visit the TrueEarth Britain North scenery. From one to another pace she visited many areas of this massive scenery package. Curious what you all saw, what she thinks of it? Check it out via this comprehensive review link.

Airport Review | Bristol Definitive Airport

We’re pleased to offer you an in-depth review of the Pilot Plus Bristol Definitive Airport, written for you by our dedicated reviewer Andy Clarke and your personal reporter Angelique van Campen.

According to Andy “There is considerable attention to detail throughout the scenery and whilst it should be remembered this is flight simulator scenery there is something to view at ground level when taxiing an aircraft or generally moving around the airport.” Angelique adds to this “I’ve very happy with what I see. I do like the modeled airport a lot, especially when you compare it with real photos. That the default Laminar Research EGGD is not what you expected from it or that it can’t compete with the Pilot Plus Bristol Definitive Airport, makes sense. That said, EGGD is worth every penny!”

All together worth the read. That said, we invite you to read this comprehensive Pilot Plus Bristol Definitive’ review.

Airport Review | FlyTampa Greece Adventure

Your personal reporter Angelique van Campen needs another review challenge, a Greece challenge to be exactly.

It’s cold in the Netherlands, and once a while it’s raining, so time to leave my country and seeking for warmer areas. It’s time to visit the southern European countries and then in particular time to visit FlyTampa Heraklion and Thessaloniki. FlyTampa has in total four Greece airports modeled namely Corfu, Heraklion, Thessaloniki and in late 2019 Athens. This review covers the modeled airports of Heraklion and Thessaloniki.

According to Angelique “When I started thinking about this review and how to pack it all together, I thought it would be easy to connect these two airports with their scenery together, but while writing, I found out that this wasn’t as easy as expected. At the end, I think I’ve seen enough to write about all the ins and outs of these FlyTampa airports. Was it worth her time? Yes, it was even knowing that the manuals are a bit basic and that no WT3 or X-Life files are included, but perhaps that will be included with a future update”.

Airport Review | Nimbus Studios KATL

We’re pleased to inform you, also on behalf of our reviewer Bruce Knight, that Bruce visited the international airport of Atlanta from Nimbus Studios. According to Bruce “I was impressed by what Nimbus have done with KATL v2. I love the animated people, the plugin functions, as well as the detail in the scenery. The Delta museum and maintenance facility are excellent, and getting inside the concourse with a virtual view looks much like the real thing. The airport has a sense of life to it.”

Bruce continues “I believe that this product will add depth to any XP11 installation, especially if you like flying into and out of the busiest airport in the world! In comparing this scenery product to the XP11.40 default KATL, it’s obvious that a lot is added to this airport by the Nimbus product. And at a framerate that exceeded my expectations.”
