Upgrading to Windows Vista
“If more than a decade in IT has taught me one thing, it is the old adage that “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it” is mostly true! Early in the New Year, I decided to set about building a new PC. On the software side I had to decide whether to add Windows Vista or stick to the tried and trusted Windows XP.”

Short Forms, Long Troubles
Using a VOR/NDB/GPS IAP at KTYS under IMC in MSFS can be a TA. Well, not really, because KTYS doesn’t have a VOR/NDB/GPS IAP for use under IMC. Sentences overloaded with abbreviations are often found later in a book or article, after they’ve been identified. But the topic of this article mandates such a sentence up front, to make a point. Bill Stack makes his point very clear in this column!

How to Fly like a Thunderbird - Part III

“My pre-occupation with flight sim had brought me to the brink of losing my job.

Combat Air Museum – The B-36 “Peacemaker”
The Peacemaker holds the distinction of being the largest ever piston powered, combat aircraft. It was also the first aircraft to be fitted to carry thermonuclear weapons. The B-36 set the stage for future long-range bombers, such as the B-52 and the B-1B.

Building the Ultimate Sim Series – Part II
Last month we took a look at a variety of the control, display and environment options available as the more basic level of enhancements. The next tier is where the enthusiast begins to get even more serious about the options and one of the ways this is reflected is by selecting control yokes of full metal not plastic construction.

Round Robin Adventures – China Southwest Airlines
We are flying for China Southwest Airlines, and will be doing a full “three cycle” day with landings at Xiamen, Taipei and Hong Kong.
