As per our Community Charter, all of our reviews are free from bias, prejudice and favouritism. Don't forget, each reviewer has their own style and thoughts, although they all abide by the Review Guidelines - something I suggest you read.

Gatwick has been a constant throughout my flightsim ‘career’. I remember many years ago that it was one of, if not, the first payware airports that I purchased. I recall finding the go-around procedure particularly interesting having seen real-world operators executing that hard left or right turn heading 179 degrees climbing to 3000ft. Not only this, but I recognised this as the major hub of the airline which I grew up alongside and ultimately entered aviation with. Us flight simmers have never been quite as spoilt as we have in recent years with most airports being covered by at least two developers – a double-edged sword if you ask me. Whilst this can offer many advantages to the consumer, it leads to congestion in the market and draws attention away from potentially unique development opportunities where other developers are yet to venture.

UK2000 Scenery has ultimately, for many years, held the fort amongst simmers as being renowned for their renditions of UK & Channel Island airports. Enter Jennasoft. I first stumbled upon the company having known very little about the firm and their developments but had seen renders floating on social media. The renders offered very little information but showcased some brilliant details which I looked forward to seeing in my sim. With the length of time from announcement to the release, I lost track of the project. Then almost out of the blue, Jennasoft released Gatwick Airport with little fanfare. With my in-depth knowledge of the airport and its surroundings, I thought it was high time to see if competition for the same airport does benefit the flight sim community.
