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.

Microsoft is bringing its Flight Simulator series back. After years of silence, after the failure of MS Flight, after selling the rights to FSX and ESP… Microsoft has just announced a new flight simulator.

Flaps – 737 vs 747 #1

Flap usage in Boeing 737 NG and 747-400. Similarities and differences between two PMDG aircraft I fly.

TrueEarth Netherlands – ORBX – review (5*)

Netherlands by ORBX. The best area scenery in my P3D. By far! And in some places - the worst performer. It is a complicated review.

San Francisco – Flight Beam – review (5*)

San Francisco International - a great airport and a significant place in the history of aviation. For P3D by FlightBeam. Amazing work on a marvelous destination.

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.
