Alabeo's Piper PA-36 Pawnee Brave 375: A Review

Posted on Sat, 23 Mar 2013 14:54:49 GMT

White Knuckle Crop Dusting Fun: Piper PA-36 Pawnee Brave 375 for FSX/Prepar3D. You drop in low over the field of neat rows of soybeans waiting patiently. A crosswind is threatening to take you off course. Pulling your eyes up from the instrument panel, you take a deep breath and remind yourself to trust your instincts. This isn't like flying a jumbo jet into a giant airport. This is crop dusting, one of the last frontiers of seat-of-the-pants flying. The low passes and sharp turns demand exacting flying skills. Many jumbo jet pilots can’t handle it.

727 Captain Review

Posted on Thu, 06 Jan 2011 17:29:36 GMT

With Captain Sim leading the market in terms of visual realism, who can wait to open that beautifully plastic wrapped package? I know as the days went on I became more desperate to get hold of the 727... my obsession was not thwarted as when I did get this aircraft, I continued to have a blast with it as I do now! The brilliance in detail, and the old jet smell is fantastic... consider so realistic that you can even smell the fumes coming from the old P&W JT8D-7! The 727 was the workhorse for many airlines worldwide, and continues to serve various freighter company’s and of course the infamous Donald Trump! So without further adieu I introduce you to the Boeing 727 Pro pack... enjoy!

Hello my Name is William. I am currently a student pilot starting my climb to a career in the Aerospace industry. Ever since I was a toddler I was fascinated with aviation. I one day plan to go into space at least once. I would also like to fly very large aircraft. I was asked to review the Airbus A400 created by Wilco publishing so without further waiting I give you the A400 REVIEW! The most unique thing about the A400 is the Virtual cockpit. It is absolutely HUGE! With the Cockpit the crew rest area behind the cockpit door the main stairway and behind that is the HUGE cargo/pax hold. Here are a few pictures of the various compartments of the A400 VC.
