From his home town, Bruce Knight, our dedicated reviewer, visited the incredible Sedona area and of course the local airport, all modeled by X-Codr. According to Bruce “I can’t imagine what approaching this airport to land is like- the effects of up and down drafts, the relatively short runway with its elevation, and the slope of the runway- and what it must be like to try and ignore all this amazing geology while focusing (or trying to) on landing your aircraft.’ Want to read Bruce his comprehensive review?
