THE BROOKLANDS CONCORDE SIMULATOR
In our previous issue we featured Brooklands Museum which hosts the only functional Concorde flight simulator in the world. PC Pilot was kindly invited back to experience the simulator first-hand to find out exactly how realistic it is. So, what is it like to fly Concorde?

BUILDING A 737 COCKPIT
Joe Lavery continues on to the next stage of his mammoth cockpit building project, previous instalments of which have been published in our PC Pilot `Special' editions. In this issue he builds the Main Instrument Panel or MIP.

X-PLANE 9 - BUILDING AN AIRCRAFT IN X-PLANE
Continuing from his previous article on creating a PA-31 Piper Chieftain in X-Plane, Chuck Bodeen creates a paint scheme for the aircraft and adds details to make the aircraft more realistic. He then uses Airfoil-Maker to create lift and drag properties for the wings, before moving on to the flight test.

In our ongoing series to recreate combat missions in Microsoft's Flight Simulator, Adam Cotton recreates a famous Spitfire mission using RealAir's superb Spitfire IX and shows you how to fly this iconic aircraft in the process.
