The Best Flight Simulation Software

Posted Feb 24 2010 7:19am

There are a number of flight simulation software programs out on the market place and in order to determine which is the best flight simulation software out there we will break it down to three categories. The categories we will be looking at is realism, types of aircraft and location. In this particular lens we are going to focus on Flight Pro Sim which has been receiving outstanding reviews from the aeronautic community.

Best Flight Simulation Software How Real Do You Want It

There are two types of people who tend to use flight simulation software programs: Pilots and wanna be pilots. If you are a pilot who wants to keep his or her skills fresh than you need a program that is as realistic as possible. Now if you are a wanna be pilot basically you are looking for the same thing to be able to log some hours so when it is time for the real thing you are more than ready to jump in the cockpit.

A game like Flight Pro Sim offers everything from weather variables to sloped runways to time of day to a number of different factors that can affect the flying experience. Along with the environmental factors each of the aircrafts that are available in the Flight Pro Sim software handle differently from the RC helicopters to all sorts of airplanes to gliders and even a Zepplin so to get the feel of each is going to take some dedication on your part but the good thing is you will have a blast doing it.

If you are like me and want the full experience than the Flight Pro Sim has the technology which automatically detects any joystick, yoke, or pedals attached. Along with a cockpit that is a picture perfect match for the real type of aircraft that you are using there is a good reason why flight instructors just love this program.

Best Flight Simulation Software A Whole Lot Of Flying Machines

For a flight simulation software to stand out from the rest it needs to have a wide variety of aircraft to keep the experience fresh and interesting. Here is a sample of the aircraft available with the Flight Pro Sim program

Best Flight Simulation Software Location, Location And Location

A very important factor when it comes to any flight simulation software program is the different areas that you can fly over. With Flight Pro Sim you get 20,000 different airports all broken down to the smallest of degrees from the way they are sloped to the way the runways are lighted up at night. Of course along with the airports there is the entire globe to explore. Flight Pro Sim is not going to get boring after the second week just based on location alone
