you might have on getting the best from your PC simulation.

line up of aircraft, from GA to twin commuters and perhaps the odd
executive transport. Whatever we can get in on Shoreham's runway

Real Flying - Well be negotiating discounts on flying
lessons or trial flights on the day and you may even see aircraft
like the Decathlon and Extra 300 doing some practice displays towards
the end of the day!

part of the event... find out more about joining one of the world's
biggest virtual ATC groups and experience real ATC from real controllers
when flying online. If you can't make the event in person then come
and join us in the virtual fly-in (the landings are still free!).
PC Pilot Magazine come and say hello to the world's favourite
flight simulation magazine and grab your free back issue.
Talks and demonstrations This year we'll be adding to
the pilot training theme with a few more talks aimed at hardware
issues and getting the most from Flight Simulator.
