ORBX product description:

Welshpool is the latest in a long line of airports from developers Andreas Hegi, Heiko Glatthorn, and Alex Goff. Previous works include KORS Orcas Island, 1S2 Darrington, and PAHO Homer. The first add-on airport for the Wales region is Welshpool (Mid Wales) Airport. Situated 4 kilometres south of the town of Welshpool, along the River Severn, this charming airfield is host to a lively general aviation scene. Mid Wales Airport is home to the Mid Wales Air Ambulance and host to an annual airshow. Welshpool was initially known as Pool but changed its name in the 1800s to distinguish itself from the English town of Poole. Its most prominent landmark, Powis Castle, sits atop the slopes lining the valley. The castle can be easily seen from the airfield circuit. Additional landmarks in the city include the two churches on the west side of town, Christ Church and St. Mary’s Church, along with two quarries to the northeast.

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.

Learn to fly - simulator setup. Lesson 1

To learn you need a simulator software, a joystick, and an airplane. I suggest FSX or P3D, basic joy and Cessna 172.
