New Hovercontrol Instructor - Connor Bourque

Connor joined Hovercontrol in 2005 as a young student from Lafayette LA and from that time he introduced himself to the IP Team and they took him under their wing and ensured he pursued his academic studies first before the entertainment within our community. But the time has come!

A place to fly - Hope, British Columbia (CYHE)

After hours of tweaking Flight Simulator X performance, installing new addon sceneries, and getting the best aircraft available for flight simulator, you might feel the urge to fly. A few nights ago, a friend from British Columbia recommended that I check out a little placed called Hope. Using Flight Simulator X with FS Genesis terrain mesh, Ground Environment X textures, and the trusty FSX Dodosim 206, I set out to explore this area. It turns out to be one of the nicest areas of terrain for flying helicopters in Flight Simulator X.

Flight Simulator X vs Flight Simulator 2004

Four years after the release of Flight Simulator X, Flight Simulator 2004 downloads remain popular. Users of Flight Simulator 2004 are still well represented in the flight simulator online environments, and it would seem that the Flight Simulator X vs Flight Simulator 2004 question will remain for at least a couple more years. What will this mean for users of Flight Simulator 2004, Flight Simulator X, and the developers of Flight Simulator downloads and expansions?

How to Choose the Right FS Controllers

Most PC games may be played by means of regular PC mouse and normal computer keyboard: if you are a typical, regular gamer. But if you are a grave and die-hard player , those peripherals are just not enough. That is why computer makers produced and actualized other gaming gear to offer greater enjoyment and real-life experience. A joystick belongs to those accessories.

Flight Simulator X - Best yet to Come?

It was a time when the possibilities were endless, the community was passitionate and imaginative, and small sub-communities of highly creative developers gave rise to an endless and dazzling array of developments for our favorite software. Is it possible that some elements of this bygone golden era in the flight simulator world are starting to come around again?
