The very mention of the city of Liverpool in the United Kingdom means a lot of things to a lot of people. This popular city is synonymous with great music, sport, culture, tourism and business. In more relative terms it’s a great place to fly in and out of with our favourite simulators, in this case, Prepar3D v4.

Liverpool is the fifth largest city in the UK and is situated in the Northwest of England. The main airport is, of course, Liverpool John Lennon airport (EGGP) named after the Beatles musician John Lennon. The airport itself is situated on the banks of the estuary of the River Mersey, providing passengers with scenic departures and arrivals. Handling over 5 million passengers in 2018, this busy single-runway, single terminal airport is a popular choice for people commuting to major European cities and seasonal tourist hotspots. Ryanair and Easyjet are the most frequent carriers operating out of Liverpool daily.

Virtual-Fly Yoko the Yoke Video Review [The Flight Sim Deck]

Review Virtual Fly Yoko The Yoke
Our friend and fellow video producer TheFlightSimDeck was also lucky enough to get his hands (literally) on the Virtual-Fly Yoko The Yoke. Whilst this review is independent of the FSElite written review we published late last year, the comments on what Patrick liked and disliked are very similar. Furthermore, as we work closely on a daily basis, it only made sense

FSElite Original: In Review – January

Monthlyreview Jan

It’s the end of the month again, meaning it’s time to look back. And the first month of 2019 certainly has brought us some interesting discussions. About Aerosoft, for example, or Captain Sim, who seemed to develop a competition of who could get the community the most outraged.

Luckily it wasn’t all outrageous, and a lot of good things happened in this first month. A lot of exciting updates for some of our beloved aircraft are on the horizon, such as PMDG’s Queen of the Skies II or QualityWings’ 787, BAe146 and 757. And, on another positive (and personal) note, I finally got my PC back up. You may recall I had to put it away for the time being, due to a home redecoration project. This project lasted a lot longer than I had anticipated and hoped. But everything is done and I can finally start my sim again after three months. After I have spent another three on installing all my addons, that is. And those mobile sims I wrote about? Yes, I promise I’ll get back to you about that sometime in the future.

And yes, the careful and aware reader may have noticed I totally skipped my December review. I do apologise. I simply could not find the time between family and holidays.

We were also recently graced with the Cremonasoft A310,

FSElite Original: In Review – November

November was supposed to be a relatively calm month. Some releases to be expected, some updates here and there, and the big Black Friday sale. However, that should have been about it. It almost sounded too good to be true. And if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. In all fairness, I might be slightly exaggerating.

FSElite Original: In Review – October

The end of the year is slowly creeping upon us. It seemed like just yesterday I was still enjoying cold beers on a sunny terrace, but the harsh and cold reality, mixed with the first snow of the year have reminded me that these days are long gone. Enfin, back to our simulators it is. Perhaps we can get a
