FEATURES

DCS: BLACK SHARK!
Welcome to our new series featuring Digital Combat Simulator: Black Shark. Representing the pinnacle of combat flight simulator complexity, Black Shark is awe-inspiring. However, its in-depth systems modelling and flight fidelity, coupled with a massive 536-page printed manual, is a little intimidating for many. So, over the next few issues we will guide you through these various complexities - from start-up to shut-down. In this issue, we will look at the basic start-up procedure for the Ka-50 attack helicopter.

FLYING THE P-38 LIGHTNING
In this edition of his ongoing series on flying combat aircraft in FSX, Adam Cotton recreates another exciting historical mission flying the Lockheed P-38 Lightning.

X-PLANE 9 - BUILDING AN AIRCRAFT
In Part 4 of our series on X-Plane, Chuck Bodeen teaches us the basics on how to create a 3D panel and cockpit that will allow us to scan the instruments while in flight.

FLIGHT SIMULATOR - A BEGINNER'S GUIDE
In our previous two instalments, we looked at some different ways to enliven your flight simulation sessions by bringing other aircraft and even people to your party. This issue, Tony Radmilovich takes things yet a step further by inviting some more pilots and even a few air traffic controllers to the proceedings!

JET AIRLINERS - A FLIGHT SIM PILOT'S GUIDE
In this issue of our Airliner series, Jane Whittaker focuses on the manual handling of the unique MD-11.

GA FLIGHT SIM TRAINING
Welcome to the final instalment in Stage 2 of our Back to Basics series! In this issue, Peter Stark shows us that even when we judiciously learn all the theory and practice the exercises and fly like a professional, we can still sometimes become `geographically embarrassed'. He then offers advice on how we can apply a series of simple steps to determine our position and regain track.

PROFESSIONAL INSTRUCTION WITH BILL STACK
In this issue's tutorial flight, we fly from Kagoshima to Naha, Japan, in a Beechcraft King Air 350, over beautiful islands and a country rich in history and heritage. Good luck!
