KARPATHOS, GREECE (LGKP) - MXI DESIGN - A REVIEW    
 
Another of my recent purchases, we take a look at KARPATHOS in the

Greek islands, Greece being one of my favourite destinations.   This

scenery by the Team at MXI Designs, is feature rich and from initial

viewing, really looks the part.   We take a close up look.   More details

can be found HERE . . .

Possibly for the first time, we head to the Hawaian Islands to check out

LIHUE Airport (PHLI), a new scenery by Northern Sky Studio.   Located

on the island of Kauai, this looks to be a very detailed scenery of an

iconic airport, feature rich with custom orthophoto, full PBR texturing

and full shading effects on all of the buildings.   We take an up-close

and personal look.   More details HERE . . .

  I was asked recently during a live flight, about the use of the flight code VAP for my private airline and so I decided to post an ORIGIN page to
  show the research I did to enable me to use this code from the now defunct South American airline that previously used it.    So check out the 
  new 
ORIGIN OF VAP AIR page!       

 FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS . . . 

 MORE REVIEWS TO COME !        
 Yes, watch for more reviews and Adventure Flights to come in due course.   Also . . . . 

 I now have a page on Facebook and a new page on Instagram both dedicated to my channel.   Check them out here -

  WELL, WHAT'S ALL THIS ABOUT THEN . . . . . . ?

 

Hello and welcome to my site.   I have been a home Desktop Virtual Pilot for over

30 years.   Whilst I was once a former beta tester for Microsoft UK, way back in the

day and have been involved with flying full size, home built Flight Simulators as

part of a Team of Virtual Pilots raising money for charity, I now fly airliners across

the world for a small group of Virtual Airlines with dedicated volunteers.   You will

find them listed on my ABOUT ME page.   I have over 14,000 virtual flying hours

and these days, I am getting into video capture and editing.   Flight Simulation lends

itself really well to this kind of thing and so, by way of these pages, I would like to try

and show you what goes on in the virtual flying world and give you a flavour of the Aircraft, the Pilots, the Scenery available for the main Simulation Platforms and to discuss bits and pieces in a regular blog.   As Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 is now in it's third year, I will also be exploring the limits of the Simulator developed by Asobo Studios and led by the Microsoft Team who created the source of our obsession in the first place!!    This site is a work in progress so please bear with me as I build the site and add content.   Thank you for visiting ....

VAP AIR - My Virtual Airline
Scenery Highlights & Reviews
Hi There!
 ALL ABOUT VIRTUALAIRLINEPILOT . . . .

VirtualAirlinePilot  is a new project to build a Brand and a Private Virtual Airline.   I will  be show-casing video content, Adventure Flights and Reviews about new and current products for Flight Simulator 2020.   I have purchased the Premium Edition  of Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 and so will be examining and evaluating this product and other related topics that both you and I find interesting too.   As I get used to using my video software (Vegas Movie Studio 20), I will be producing product reviews and flying videos as often as I can.   These videos will feature scenery products, as well as adventure flights featuring some of my more interesting landings and take offs from across the virtual world for my own Airline VAP AIR and the virtual airlines that I also currently fly for.   I also have a very good friend and flying buddy, NEIL WARMAN, who got me into this video thing in the first place and with whom I fly online frequently!   Check out Neil's YouTube Channel VIRTUAL FLIGHT VIDEOS for some great videos and streams!   Videos will be available on my YouTube Channel with notifications and links to those videos posted here on my site too.   Thank you for your kind interest in my project.   Lee James (The Captain) - West Sussex UK
