The brand new September/October issue of PC Pilot has finally landed, and as always it’s loaded with a wide range of exciting news, reviews features and tutorials!
The star of this particular issue, and featured on this month’s cover, is PMDG’s DC-6 Cloudmaster, which marks this company’s first entry into the X-Plane market.
We have in-depth reviews of Just Fight’s DH.98 Mosquito FB Mk VI – dubbed the ‘Wooden Wonder’, Wilco’s Falcon 7X business jet, Drzewiecki Design’s gorgeous Baku X airport and the exciting DCS: SA342 Gazelle helicopter from Eagle Dynamics.
We continue with our popular series of tutorials for Majestic’s Dash 8-Q400 by Jane Whittaker; Peter Stark’s two-part series on Aviation Rules of Thumb, which this time has some useful hints and tips better suited to aircraft that fly higher and faster; and we follow Jessica Bannister-Pearce on her quest to build an Airbus A320 cockpit from scratch. You can also join us on a flight adventure to Lake Tahoe in the US, which is one of the most scenic locations in the world.
Finally, on the technical front, we offer advice on a number of topics including problems with Windows 10, Saitek panels and virtual weather programs; plus we take a look at NVIDIA’s latest flagship graphics card, the GeForce GTX 1080.
If that was not enough, on this month’s accompanying cover disc, we have two demos of products reviewed in this issue (one for Just Flight’s DH.98 Mosquito and the other for Baku X), three videos (JF’s Mosquito, Baku X and Aerofly FS 2), plus nine freeware files (comprising a selection of airports and aircraft).
So, whatever you’re into flight sim-wise, there’s something in this issue for you.
