The Canaries, for most people in Europe, invoke memories of childhood holidays, year round sunshine or the repetitive advertising campaigns from tour operators. Around 12 million people every year visit the Canaries for a variety of different reasons – with the most popular reason being tourism. So it is little wonder that I, like many others, was eagerly awaiting MK-Studios latest release: Tenerife Vol.1. Over the past few years we’ve seen tremendous scenery growth in areas of Italy, Germany and mainland Spain. Yet the Canaries, despite their cult like following, have only very recently started to make waves in the community.

In my review we will be honing in on the island of Tenerife, the largest of the islands that make up the archipelago. Originally Tenerife only had one airport, Los Rodeos – known commonly as Tenerife North – situated on the north side of the island. Due to its often inclement weather, it was decided in the late 1960s that a more suitable location be sought to open a new airport to better serve the island. Then on the 27th of March 1977, disaster struck when two Boeing 747s collided causing the death of 583 people making this the worst accident in aviation history. On the 6th of November 1978 Tenerife South was opened and inaugurated as Tenerife Sur Reina Sofia Airport by Queen Sofia of Spain, and has been open to this day.

A bit over a year ago, Orbx released FTX Germany North. Luckily for us, Germany is once again reunited. Almost a year after the release of FTX Germany North, Orbx has released FTX Germany South. And in this review you’ll find out if it is as good as its counterpart. Presentation Regions are a bit different to review. There isn’t

MK Studios is a development team that has been around for a long time. You may not know, but they’re behind scenery packages such as Maderia and Mega Airport Rome. Both of these sceneries, among others, were subsequently published under the Aerosoft brand. Since then, MK Studios has decided to break away from flight sim behemoth and has decided to self-publish their own content. Their first self-published release of Fuerteventura 2017 was released earlier this year and we felt now was a great time to explore the Canary island.

For those who don’t know, the Canary Islands are known for their year-round sunshine, wonderful seaside resorts and friendly locals. This is exactly why for European carriers, it is the perfect destination throughout the year. For simmers, it’s an exciting place to visit as the winds sweep across the islands – usually at a crosswind – and there’s a wealth of routes available to choose from. Not only that, but the islands themselves provide some scenic approaches as you descend to the runway. Fuerteventura is no different and provides you with everything you would need for a great destination to add to your collection.

Carenado C172SP G1000: The FSElite Review

Now, this was a plane I was really looking forward to. For the 10+ years FSX has been out, there has been no payware Cessna 172SP, to my knowledge. Carenado had made a C172N before, and of course, there was the A2A C172R which is very similar to the C172SP. But they were not the SP model, and they all

Without a doubt, Croatia is one of the most beautiful regions in all of Europe. The pleasant temperatures, the untouched nature, the wonderful architecture, and the miles and miles of coast make it simply divine. It’s no wonder then that the popularity of the country is increasing each year. I have had family members visit the attractive locations around the
