ApplicationFrameHost 2019 02 11 08 57 00

Airline2Sim, the company behind several training packages, announced a short while back a new product in their upcoming portfolio of products: Airport2Sim. The idea behind Airport2Sim was to provide a series of training videos related to real-world ops at specific airports. Furthermore, the package would also include GSX config files and PDF documentation to ensure that your airport was as close to the real deal as possible. You can find out full details here.

The first airport in this new series will be Amsterdam. The final touches are just being added now as we speak. However, Airline2Sim did confirm that the next product in this series will indeed be Charles De Gaulle (CDG). The largest French airport will be tackled next giving simmers a detailed look at how ground movements work, tricks and tips to make the most of your time taxiing around the huge airport.

No word on a release, but in the previous roadmap post from the team, this, and other projects, are all aiming to be out this year.

Airline2Sim PMDG 777 Cadet Program: The FSElite Review

As per our Community Charter, all of our reviews are free from bias, prejudice and favouritism. Don't forget, each reviewer has their own style and thoughts, although they all abide by the Review Guidelines - something I suggest you read.

The PMDG 777 is on the best aircraft available for flightsim. Without a doubt, it’s got excellent features, a stellar virtual cockpit and it performs extremely well. One of the best features of it is how easy it is to get to grips with. You can be on the runway one minute and cruising at FL350 before you know it. It’s a great aircraft for those long hauls, and airlines even use them for short hops. Whilst this is great, the depth that PMDG have covered is often overlooked. And it’s not a surprise when the manual is as large as it is (not the introduction manual, the FCOM itself). Quite simply, as a study level sim, this documentation will tell you everything you need to know, however, as everyone learns at different paces in a variety of ways, this is where Airline2Sim steps in. This review will be a little different as instead of reviewing something designed to be used in the sim, this has been designed to used alongside as a tool to not only get to grips with the PMDG 777, but to master it.

Some of you may know Airline2Sim from their brilliant Dash 8 Q400 Package programs. Both of them covered absolutely everything you needed to know about the excellent plane by Majestic. It was delivered in a way unique to the flightsim community and put you in the shoes of a real pilot taking you through various situations to really test your skills. The PMDG 777 Cadet Program is the same. Throughout the 20+ hours of content over 24 videos, you’ll shown challenging approaches, short hops, night flying and even dealing with a rejected take off. Each scenario you’re put in is different, and you’ll exploring the world as you go. This is important as it keeps the content varied and allows simmers from all around the world to have their own territory covered.

Each episode is narrated by Ben. Throughout your journey from cadet to full-fledged pilot, Ben plays the role of you – the simmer. As I watched, I found myself wondering the reason why the plane did something or why that was a specific procedure. The problem of course with pre-recorded video is that you can’t ask those questions. However, it felt like Ben was right there in the room with me as he was asking those questions on my behalf. It sounds odd, but then I realised: this is the point. This is why Ben is there – to be you; the viewer. His inquisitive nature and passion for learning is a perfect fit for this type of production. Instead of a single person talk you through the procedures, Ben is there to put the speed brakes on and ensure that not only you know WHAT is happening, but also asking the questions so you understand WHY it is the way it is. Any trainer will tell you the why is just as important as ‘the what’ for people to fully understand and comprehend what is going on.
