FLYING THE SPECTRUM
NIGHTFLITE is one of the first flight simulation programs for the Spectrum. At the beginning of the program a series of options is given, including a demonstration flight, takeoff, final approach, autopilot and a map of the flight area.
The screen display is split into two, with the aircraft instruments at the bottom and a view through the cockpit window at the top.
The navigational instruments include instrument landing system, artificial horizon, non-directional beacon and VHF omni-directional range.
The program is an accurate simulation, since Hewson Consultants, the company behind the simulation, employed a qualified pilot to provide the technical details.
Nightflite costs £5.95 and is available from Hewson Consultants, 60a St Mary's Street, Wallingford, Oxon OX10 0EL.
