    PC Pilot November/December Issue


    The Brooklands Concorde Simulator
    In our previous issue we featured Brooklands Museum which hosts the only functional Concorde flight simulator in the world. PC Pilot was kindly invited back to experience the simulator first-hand to find out exactly how realistic it is. So, what is it like to fly Concorde?

    Building a 737 Cockpit
    Joe Lavery continues on to the next stage of his mammoth cockpit building project, previous instalments of which have been published in our PC Pilot 'Special' editions. In this issue he builds the Main Instrument Panel or MIP.

    X-Plane 9 - Building an aircraft in X-Plane
    Continuing from his previous article on creating a PA-31 Piper Chieftain in X-Plane, Chuck Bodeen creates a paint scheme for the aircraft and adds details to make the aircraft more realistic. He then uses Airfoil-Maker to create lift and drag properties for the wings, before moving on to the flight test.

    Achtung! Spitfeuer!
    In our ongoing series to recreate combat missions in Microsoft's Flight Simulator, Adam Cotton recreates a famous Spitfire mission using RealAir's superb Spitfire IX and shows you how to fly this iconic aircraft in the process.

    Computer round-up
    Choosing a computer capable of running flight simulators at acceptable frame rates can be a challenge. So, Richard Benedikz takes a look at some of the latest computer systems to help you make a more informed decision.

    Flight Simulator - A Beginner's Guide
    In this two-part instalment of our Beginner's Guide, we looks at two ways of adding other aircraft, vehicles and even real people to your virtual world.

    Jet Airliners - A Flight Sim Pilot's Guide
    In this issue of our airliner series, we briefly step away from the usual tutorial format to answer questions posed by our readers. As promised in our previous issue, your questions have been chosen and answered by current 747-400 pilots as well as our resident airliner expert Jane Whittaker.

    GA Flight Sim Training
    As we have previously explored some basic navigation and the possible effects of wind and weather, Peter Stark now starts the first leg of a longer flight that will incorporate real-world techniques, allowing you to navigate in Flight Simulator with surprising reality and accuracy.

    Professional Instruction with Bill Stack

    Today, Bill Stack's 341-nautical-mile tutorial flight in a Boeing 738 will be over the Rocky Mountains and infamous deserts of southwestern United States. Departure will be from Los Angeles International Airport (KLAX) and our arrival airport will be The Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport (KPHX) in Phoenix, Arizona. Good luck!

    Flight Sim Hints and Tips - Fine-tuning FSX!
    In this issue of his popular FS Hints and Tips series, Peter Wright focuses on fine-tuning FSX. As he shows, obtaining good frame rates is always a compromise. The achievement of fluid flight is often at the expense of scenery complexity, and ultimately visual immersion.
