    I experienced a similar situation flying from TNCS (island of Saba) to TNCE (island of Sint Eustatius) with the default Cessna 172. Landing the plane was easy (as long as I ignored the LSO)!

    I'm finding X-Plane 11 very refreshing after years of using FSX and lately P3D. If I had to pick a flight sim to fly without addons; X-Plane 11 would be my first choice by an extremely large margin....

    Two weeks ago, I finally got a custom built rig (i7-8700k, GTX 1070 OC, 16gb RAM) to run P3Dv4. This machine is just adequate for running P3D; but with absolutely no AI, boats or car traffic.

    I can't comment on the V2.5 to V3 update, but I can say that V3 is the first Prepar3d version that sounded enticing enough for this long time FSX user to give it a try.

    Overall, I'm very happy...

    As one would expect from a simulator based on Microsoft ESP and not FSX. I took one look at ESP (when it was first announced by Microsoft) and realized it was not aimed at the same market as FSX.

    There are good reasons why the majority of flight simmers stick with FSX:

    1. Compatible with the widest range of the latest and greatest addons.

    At first I thought, doesn't P3D have its own forum here at SOH. Then I realized that it does have its own forum, but with P3D being such a limited market the post would probably not be noticed.
