Scenery Review | Orbx 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. That said, your personal reporter Angelique van Campen took the Orbx plane to visit the TrueEarth Britain North scenery. Check it out via this comprehensive review link.

Aircraft Review | vFlyteAir C150 Commuter

With the holidays behind all of us, our dedicated reviewer Andy Clarke found enough time to explore the vFlyteAir C150 Commuter. It’s fun to fly such a training GA model. With this tiny model you really learn to fly! The C150 was designed as a trainer aircraft and in my view this model makes a great platform for X-Plane users to learn how to use X-Plane itself, basic navigation equipment and skills and to gain flight experience. Want to read Andy’s whole review? Then follow this comprehensive link and enjoy!
