Nordborg – Vidan Design – review 5*

/
How the hell are you supposed to find Nordborg? Some grass, several inconspicuous buildings, few cars. That’s it. Any farm in the region fits this description. Without GPS finding Nordborg gets interesting.

74S – Anacortes – ORBX

Today I would like to take you to Anacortes - a small town in the state of Washington. We will start at the airport, and then we will go on a trip around the island of Fidalgo to check what else the developer has prepared.

MFG Crosswind Rudder – review (6*)

320 Euro spent on a simulator gadget? Usually, that is hard to justify. Not this time. MFG Crosswind changed my simulation experience more than any other device I have, and that counts for something.

FTX Scotland – ORBX – review (4****)

Scotland. Another piece in ORBX regional puzzle - similar to…

Svalbard-Longyear X – Aerosoft – review (5*)

Trees. I hated the trees in Svalbard - in the default FSX and P3D scenery. Aerosoft cut them out, and that is the reason enough to buy this scenery. 

PAGS Gustavus – ORBX – review (5*)

442 inhabitants. And a far greater number of flights each year.  Gustavus - a small Alaskan town and its very nice scenery.

Samos – 29Palms – review (5*)

Samos - one of the most challenging airports in the world. The IFR approach puts the pilot high and on a course perpendicular to the runway. Then, it is necessary to maneuver along a mountain slope before coming to a short final to the runway that is just two kilometers long and leaves no room for mistakes.

11S Sekiu – ORBX – review (5*)

Sekiu (11S). An interesting location, a difficult approach and a very nice airport immerse me the rare environment where grass grew too high, asphalt cracked, and deer comes out on the runway.

LDDU Dubrovnik Airport – ORBX (5*)

Dubrovnik. An excellent natural harbor and an airport where you can park a Cessna next to a 747. Plus centuries of grand history.

FTX Germany South – ORBX – review (5*)

FTX Germany South. Two hundred thousand square kilometers, hundreds of objects, enhanced airports and countless cities and towns. What can you expect from this scenery?

How to takeoff? Lesson 3

How planes take off? Why planes turn left on the runway? Do I need flaps for takeoff? That's the trim? Today I answer these questions.

Taxi – basic ground operations. Lesson 2

Taxiing. A simple affair, especially for someone who has used the simulator before. But you still ask so the description will be thorough.
