    Did he just say Ireland was included too? That would be amazing if so!

    According to the article below, yes ROI is included but, weirdly, not NI.

    Will be interesting to see what all the new POI's are. I wondered if Giant's Causeway would be one of them, but guess not in light of the above.

    Have they fixed the utterly broken controls, yet?

    Can't fly a Cessna without it completely nose diving, immediately after take off.

    Can’t say I’ve ever noticed that issue so couldn’t really comment. Is this the Caravan, 152 or 172?

    I do find that I fight with the controls a lot, and of course there are so many of them, plus the game doesn't really guide you very well.
    I assume that's the whole point of a flight sim though, it's not meant to be easy. Problem I find is that I have to re-learn every time I play it, as I don't get to play it often enough :-(

    I also find that VR makes the whole experience a lot easier, especially with approach and landing.

    One thing I would like the option for, purely from a laziness perspective, is automatic elevator trim. It would be handy for when my sons play it too, as they haven't got a clue what elevator trim is or why it's needed! They just sit there with the stick held forward (or back) trying to maintain level flight.

    I know altitude hold would do a similar thing, but not all the planes in FS have autopilot.

    Definitely agree that the depth perception of VR makes landings easier, especially the extreme challenge ones. Without VR I could hardly ever nail the Saba landing without ending up in the sea beyond the runway.
