Issue Cover

PC Pilot  |  Issue 81: September-October 2012  


Hello and a very warm welcome to another packed issue of PC Pilot. As usual we have news, reviews, tutorials and features – encompassing both flight sim hardware and software.

Reviews
RealAir’s Lancair Legacy is our lead review in this edition – Fast and fun, the RealAir Lancair Legacy is a great way to experience this fascinating aircraft for a lot less money!

Aircraft review highlights include:

• P-51D Mustang from A2A – A tour-de-force in flight sim engineering!

• T-28C Trojan from K&A Sim– A beautiful aircraft, let down by lack of documentation, and sounds.

Scenery review highlights include:

• Antarctica X from Aerosoft - A complete flight adventure package including custom objects, scenery, mesh, aircraft and flight plans. Perfect for an extended piloting challenge in one of the planet’s harshest environments.

Hardware review highlights include:

• FS Flying School Pro - A worthwhile upgrade that genuinely improves the training regime provided by FS Flying School.

Tutorials
As usual our tutorials encompass a wide spectrum of subject matter.

Airliner:

• PMDG’s 737 NGX - Configuring Your Aircraft

General Aviation:

• Twin-engined Flying – How to manage engine failures – Part 3

Military:

• DCS A-10C Warthog – Air to Air Refuelling

PLUS!
A Beginner’s Guide to Flight Simulation - The English Electric Lightning is not a ‘tea and crumpets’ kind of fighter aircraft. Aeroplane Heaven has captured the essence of this bareknuckles brute very well indeed

Rise of Flight – News from the ‘Front’ – We take a look at the major updates that have been introduced to this ever-popular World War I flight sim.

FS Q&A - Our Flight Sim Q&A for this issue answers questions on FSX crashing to the desktop, ORBX scenery animation problems, and issues installing FS2004 aircraft into FSX.

Cover CD highlights:
Quebec– Gilles Boily’s excellent rendition of Quebec’s Jean Lesage International Airport.
