FEATURES

X-PLANE 9 - A BEGINNER'S GUIDE
In the second article of our ongoing series on X-Plane, we will explore its structure and discover how to customize and install third-party add-ons to this popular flight simulator.

MOSQUITO RAID!
In this, the first of a series, we re-enact a real combat mission as realistically as possible using a commercial military aircraft and Microsoft's Flight Simulator. This also means navigating employing `dead reckoning' techniques: using eyeball, map, compass and clock only. The chosen aircraft for this mission is the de Havilland Mosquito - using Just Flight's Mosquito package. Our mission for today is a precision bombing raid on the Gestapo headquarters.

FLIGHT SIMULATOR - A BEGINNER'S GUIDE
In our previous instalment of The Beginner's Guide, we began our look at part of the hidden world behind Microsoft Flight Simulator, its configuration (or `.cfg') files. In this edition, we are going to get inside your FS planes to see what makes them tick!

JET AIRLINERS - A FLIGHT SIM PILOT'S GUIDE
In this issue of our airliner guide we will be examining a typical long-haul flight. While our focus will be on the 747-400, much of what is discussed will be equally valid for other aircraft, especially the Boeing 767/777 and Airbus A330/A340 series.

GA Flight Sim Training
In this issue of Peter Stark's GA tutorial series he examines weight and balance and consolidate fuel planning, while taking a long flight in northern Italy.
