How do you feel about the taxiway signs that default Microsoft Flight Simulator has to offer? Personally, I think they’re pretty mediocre. Lacking in accuracy, tough to read, and have a slight tendency to get in your way. The folks at Black Square and Just Flight agreed, and decided to develop Real Taxiways USA. Let’s find out if it’s worth picking up…

This ambitious project was the result of nearly 9 man-months of work and covers a huge region in the world. Adding thousands of animals, tens of camps and hundreds of objects was no easy task, but SimWorks Studios shares how this was all achieved.

You can pick up SimWorks Studios’ amazing Okavango Delta for Microsoft Flight Simulator from their store for €22.99.

Hello everyone, Patrick back again and today we’re taking a look at the MilViz FG-1D Corsair. The Corsair is an American fighter that first took flight in 1940. Going on to serve in World War ll and later the Korean War. Now in 2021 it’s serving you in Microsoft Flight Simulator.

During late January 1945, The FG-1D was first delivered to the Port of Columbus Airport in Ohio. Today the airport is called John Glenn Columbus International and that’s where I will be showcasing the Corsair for you today.

Years ago it was easy to find a light aircraft throttle, prop, mixture controller at an entry-level price. Today, they are harder to find and often when you do, the price has increased to what you would pay for a top-tier FAA approved component. This of course is retailers and second-hand sellers taking advantage of the new surge of interest in Flight Simulation.

But now there is hope in getting one for $200 and below. This is made possible by Flight Sim Stuff. They offer handmade 3D printed, plug and play USB controllers.
