Introduction

Washington has always been a popular destination among flight simmers and developers. With the beauty of mountains like the Olympics, Rainier, stunning cityscape and of course home to one the busiest international airports in the country, Seattle International Airport. Its no wonder why Orbx chose to take on the beautiful state of Washington with TrueEarth.

The realism of this scenery is achieved by Ultra-HD Ortho scenery plus millions of buildings and trees spread across 90,000 plus square miles of terrain. But with nice looking textures you might wonder the cost in performance? Can the X-Plane 11 engine save the day? We’ll travel around the state in all sorts of airplanes to not only see how it performs but how it looks…

We really are in the golden age of the classics within the X-Plane community at the moment. We’ve recently had FlyJSim update both their 732 Twinjet and 727 Series, while we have Felis working on a 747 Classic, along with Rotate’s MD-11 looking like it may make a release in 2019. We were also recently graced with the Cremonasoft A310,

The T310R is one of the many variants of Cessna's C310, with the T310R being a turbocharged, lengthened version of the twin-engine six-seater piston aircraft. There has always been a large market for twin-piston aircraft - mainly due to their fail-safe nature, versus their single-engined counterpart - and Cessna capitalised on this in the 1950s with the development of their

Runway26 Simulations Preview MWCR V2

RWY26 MWCR Xplane Previews 1

Runway26 Simulations has released a range of Caribbean airports over the past few years for Prepar3D and X-Plane. Their next airport for X-Plane will be Owen Roberts International Airport (MWCR) and the team has just released a range of previews showcasing their hard work. This actually version 2 of the airport after the release back in 2017 of the original conversion.

The preview images showcase the details the team are adding to both the airport and surrounding area. Furthermore, it would appear night lighting has come along very nicely, as well as all the static models populating the airport.

We’re keen to see a release soon from the developer and will inform you upon its release. If you’re interested, MWCR was actually released for Prepar3D back in 2016 and still holds up pretty well today.

C152 REVIEW

The Cessna 152, a twin-seat tricycle gear general aviation aircraft, is primarily used as a trainer around the world.

The Cessna 152 can also be retrofitted as a taildragger or STOL aircraft and is often powered by
