San Jose International is located in the heart of Silicon Valley, one of the largest tech hubs in the world. San Jose Airport (KSJC), is one of the three major airports in the San Francisco Bay Area and is the second-largest in terms of passenger volume. For many years, I personally felt that SJC was very underappreciated by the community, but now that Orbx has stepped up and delivered their rendition of the airport, it looks like things are finally turning around for one of the fastest-growing airports in the country. As this is my home town airport, I just had to take a look at this scenery. But is this scenery up to the Orbx standard we all know and love? Let’s find out.

Aeroplane Heaven Douglas DC-3: The FSElite Review

DC3
Is there any aircraft more versatile and iconic than the DC-3? Popular among pilots, passengers and airline executives, the DC-3 "Dakota" never left anyone down..

Introduction

Orbx OpenLC Africa is one of those add-ons that seems to have been in development for such a long time, one does not recall when it was first announced. Plagued by many delays, it even seemed to be pretty close to cancellation not so long ago. In the meantime, with the introduction of the True Earth Series, the landclass technology as it was done in the past since the FS2002 days seemed to be over. Except for a few places like Morocco or South Africa, the continent had little to no add-on coverage at all. Orbx OpenLC Africa is the biggest landclass task undertaken by Orbx so far, covering 30.37 million km². Having personally clocked a few hundred (real) flying hours over the African continent, I was following very closely the high and lows of this development. In this review, we will see how Orbx managed the outcome.

When
