    PC Pilot Sept/Oct issue - OUT NOW!


    PC Pilot's 10th Anniversary!
    Time flies when you're having fun and that's certainly been the case here at the offices of PC Pilot, as we celebrate our tenth year of publication. In this special feature we look back at what was happening in the flight sim world ten years ago and how the hobby has changed in that time.

    The Brooklands Concorde Simulator

    In this Concorde special feature we take a look at the world's only functional Concorde simulator - based at the Brooklands Museum in Weybridge, Surrey.

    PC Concorde Simulators
    If our feature on the Brooklands Concorde Simulator has whetted your appetite to go fly a Concorde, Jane Whittaker compares the two best simulations of this aircraft currently available.

    X-Plane 9 - Building an aircraft in X-Plane

    This is the first in a series of four articles that will show you how to build aircraft models in X-Plane using the in-built 'Plane Maker' and 'Airfoil-Maker'.

    Kearby's Last Mission!
    This is the second of a two-part recreation of a memorable mission in FSX, using A2A's excellent P-47 Thunderbolt.

    Flight Simulator - A Beginner's Guide
    Flight Simulator is a very complex program and as such, any sort of anomalous code or action can upset its operation to the point of failure. Tony Radmilovich takes a look at some of the possible causes and offers some useful advice!

    Jet Airliners - A Flight Sim Pilot's Guide
    In our previous issue we discussed the Air Traffic Control requirements for a hypothetical flight across the Atlantic from Manchester to Orlando. In this issue we now continue with that theme with an in-depth look at the ATC requirements for the oceanic leg of the journey.

    GA Flight Sim Training
    Peter Stark continues his look at the fascinating science of meteorology and how pilots learn to recognise weather phenomena and their likely impact. In this issue he extends that further by exploring the effect of winds on our aircraft.

    Flight Sim Hints and Tips - Improving your Frame Rates!
    Welcome to the first in a brand new column focusing on flight sim hints and tips. To begin this series Peter Wright shows you how to achieve both great visuals and improve the performance of FSX!

    The Human Element
    This instalment of The Human Element extends our look at the people who make their living from flight simulation. In this edition we talk to the man behind Lionheart Creations - William Ortis - the developer of the excellent Epic LT package reviewed in issue 59 of PC Pilot, who overcame the odds to do something that he truly loves for a living!


    Latest product reviews including:
    Beechcraft Duke B60 (RealAir Simulation/Flight1) Cessna C182Q Skylane (Carenado)
