Honeycomb Alpha Flight Controls: The FSElite Review

ALPHA Flight Controls
9.7
Affordable hardware within Flight Simulation has been at the forefront of many simmers' minds for a long while. We have been stuck with the same hardware for many years. Despite the reliability, it’s been a long time coming for a new player. At long last, Honeycomb Aeronautical stepped up to the job with their new Alpha Yoke system. Not only

FSDreamteam Chicago OHare V2 The FSElite Review

In this video, I give my opinion of FSDreamTeam's new Chicago O'Hare v2 for P3Dv4. We will take a close look at the modelling and texturing of various elements around the airport and any new features FSDreamTeam has implemented, such as the "living" terminal. I cover airport buildings, ground textures, airport layout, night lighting, animations, seasonal variations, and performance. Don't

Hailing from the city itself, and having worked at Bristol Airport for many years, I am always keen to try out scenery products that attempt to replicate my home airport in a simulator. With the airport being so close to my heart, it was only suited that I would step into the world of X-Plane 11 and review this English airport in the South West.

PilotPlus is a relatively small development team, and what is interesting is that the team all live in the city of Bristol. That alone means their accessibility to the airport is greater than other developers for some other airports and also means that this is certainly a project of passion for the developers. That passion and ease of access help to craft an airport in X-Plane 11 that is of a good standard and ensures it’s the most up-to-date version available across all simulators.

Bristol Airport is a regional airport serving the South-West of the UK. It’s been nominated for numerous awards across Europe, and has already submitted plans for further expansion. With a lot of the work currently on-going, the airport is expected to continue changing for the next few years. Each gate is accessible via a single terminal (across multiple floors), with some stands remote-only via airport bus. There are no jetways at the airport, so no need to worry about having any additional add-ons to make them work correctly.

Digital Design’s Tivat Airport: The FSElite Review

Digital Designs Tivat
8.2
When you think of challenging approaches within Europe, your mind probably immediately rushes the likes of Innsbruck, Funchal and Gibraltar. They certainly do pose a challenge and all three of those airports present their own difficulties for pilots in any condition. However, there are still countless other airports within Europe that also give a similar challenge but are often overlooked.
