Introduction

The very mention of the city of Liverpool in the United Kingdom means a lot of things to a lot of people. This popular city is synonymous with great music, sport, culture, tourism and business. In more relative terms it’s a great place to fly in and out of with our favourite simulators, in this case, Prepar3D v4.

Liverpool is the fifth largest city in the UK and is situated in the Northwest of England. The main airport is, of course, Liverpool John Lennon airport (EGGP) named after the Beatles musician John Lennon. The airport itself is situated on the banks of the estuary of the River Mersey, providing passengers with scenic departures and arrivals. Handling over 5 million passengers in 2018, this busy single-runway, single terminal airport is a popular choice for people commuting to major European cities and seasonal tourist hotspots. Ryanair and Easyjet are the most frequent carriers operating out of Liverpool daily.

PILOT’S Alicante Airport (LEAL): The FSElite Review

Pilots Alicante Alc Leal Review P3dv4 Fselite Featured
9.5
Having spent many years flying to Alicante (LEAL) in various capacities, it’s an airport I have a strong affection for. We have been using a version of the airport for many years from Eiresim, but it hasn’t seen any love for many years. Luckily for us, developer PILOT’S stepped up and has spent the best part of a year developing

The V2RINO TPM Throttle Quadrant from Virtual-Fly is one of their more recent releases. After a range of successful products that have provided simmers and professionals with high-quality hardware, it was time to explore creating the Vernier Style throttle quadrant. It is also the most expensive flight control in their entire product range. Virtual-Flight has created an impressive feature list, but does it justify the high cost?

Unpacking and setting up the device is really easy. Simply attach the clamp to the underside of the throttles and then attach to your desk. It takes just a matter of minutes with little need to make any real adjustments. The USB cable can be plugged into the back, and then the connection into your PC. It’s simply plug and play.

Virtual-Fly Ruddo Rudder Pedals: The FSElite Review

VIRTUAL FLY Ruddo Pedal Set Featured Review
7.8
Rudder pedals are an important  piece of equipment for any serious simmer. Whilst the effectiveness of a rudder axis on a joystick is okay, it’s not exactly designed for more complicated scenarios. Rudder pedals provide that extra sense of realism and control needed for serious pilots. They’re often one of the first things someone will purchase when looking for new
