  • NEWS - Is FLY! 2 actually out? Your guess is as good as ours - enjoy the latest episode in the FLY! soap opera. Plus, there's a full report on the Dutch Flight Sim Show, news of TecPilot, Pearl Harbor (2001) from Flight One and all the information and gossip that's flying round the simulated skies.
  • REVIEWS - Forget all the rumours about Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002- we've got an exclusive interview with Bruce Williams from Microsoft. He gives us the complete story on their new baby and maybe he lets a few secrets slip - you never know !
  • FEATURES - Fed up with waiting for Seattle to fix those annoying glitches, or maybe you want to show Austin Meyer how it's done? Look no further - here's a fascinating insight into how a flight simulation program is written and a few tips in case you want to have a go yourself. we've also got some great features on the nuts and bolts of sims, including scenery design, flight modelling and even a guide to editing Navaids in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000. Don't miss Mike Clark's excellent account of a flight from London to Washington with a special simulated angle.
  • REVIEWS - Let us fly, before you buy ! Eurofighter Typhoon is out and it's been well worth the wait. This is cutting edge stuff for flight sim fans. We've also tried out ATC Simulator, Flight Deck II, Korean Combat Pilot (2001) and Harrier Jump Jet 2002 as well as our regular book and video reviews.
  • TUTORIALS - In the latest instalment of his popular tutorial series, our expert trainer Bill Stack is back on this side of the pond, with a tricky DME arc approach on a flight from Humberside to Norwich.
  • HARDWARE - As we say goodbye to Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000, Greg Gott asks that awkward question - could it ever have run smoothly, even with 1.2 GHz to play with? The answer is interesting! We've also taken a look at what's available in the way of graphics cards down at your local shop. There are plenty to choose from, but what's a turkey and what's a champ?
