Looking for DCS: Syria missions? Check this pack out!

DCS: Syria is out and my initial review of the map was fun to put together, however, the new map is still definitely lacking in content to enjoy it with. A few missions from Eagle Dynamics and third parties is underway or already in but if you’re looking for more I have a recommendation. Syria…

First flights in Microsoft Flight Simulator

It’s been just a few days but I’ve had my first flights in the public release version of Microsoft Flight Simulator checking out both the multiplayer and single player experience and I thought I would share my experiences.

Flight Journal: RAAF in action in Desert Wings – Tobruk

This is my second flight journal flying with the pre-release version of Team Fusion Simulations IL-2 Sturmovik: Desert Wings – TOBRUK.

First impressions on VSkyLab’s Cabri G2 helicopter

I don’t do much helicopter content on Stormbirds and that’s largely because flying them have mostly eluded me when I have gone to try.

Flight Journal: Putting practice into motion with DCS: F/A-18C

A lot of my recent flying with the DCS: F/A-18C Hornet has been practice runs. There’s a couple of reasons for that including some performance challenges that DCS World has had as well as being spread thin on some other exciting flight simulation moments. Last night, however, I got to put the Hornet back into…

First flight Aerobask DA62 for X-Plane 11

X-Plane 11 community website and store, X-Plane.org, was recently celebrating their 20th year of operation discounting random aircraft and random times with some great sales. The Aerobask DA62, an aircraft I’ve contemplated buying several times over the last 9-months, came up with a 50% off sale so I jumped on it and have started flying…

Flight Journal: Online with Rhyn0 flying the ‘loose deuce’

A few days ago I was flying online with IL-2: Great Battles Twitch streamer Rhyn0 on Combat Box while they were testing out their new D-Day scenario. Taking to the skies together with Requiem (Air Combat Tutorial Library) and another pilot, we flew two flights of two using flexible lead/wingman tactics that roughly approximated the…
