What is FSPilot magazine?
FSPilot Magazine is a new Flight Simulation e-publication. This means that the delivery method is electronic via the internet. Each edition will be available for download via an internet connection for use on your desktop or laptop computer using a flash animated flippable page magazine or a static pdf version. Subscribed members will be able to access the Subscribed members section of this site and gain access to future copies of the magazine and many other features that will be introduced over the coming months, such as videos, FSPilot forums, special news feeds, competitions etc.
FSPilot Magazine is produced in an A4 flippable magazine format, that will consist of a minimum of 100 pages per issue. The flippable version is Windows PC compatible. The static pdf version is Windows PC, and Apple compatible. We hope that future development will also make it fully tablet compatible.

Are the reviews biased in anyway?

When developers send review copies of their products, our reviewers will give it the once over and indicate the merits and pit falls of the product that was tested. Our overall objective is to supply our readers with a clear knowledge of the merits and pit falls of any product, therefore giving them the ability to make their own final evaluation of whether to purchase or not.
What can I expect to see in the reviews etc?
As stated above the reviews will contain an unbiased judgment of the product, giving clear information of its merits and any pit falls with regard to the product. Clear large sized screen shots are used along with a descriptive text that will include original technical specs of aircraft, which where possible will be compared against the simulated specs, and flight performance. With respect to aircraft reviews, the model is checked for flaws in the created mesh, bleeding, texture details and resolution, as well as checking the animations, systems operation etc.
Are the reviews Judged?
Yes, the reviewers will give a grading which is in accordance with a laid down marking system. This checks various aspects of the product including, design of model, quality of model, quality of textures, its merits, its bad points, quality and usability of the documentation, ease of installation, ease of use and other aspects.
