If you are anything like me you are probably an aviation enthusiast, heck maybe even a nut like me! I had dreamed of flying ever since I was a little kid and now that dream is a reality.
Today I am a professional pilot living my dream, but you can start to live your dream too with the world’s most realistic, best flight simulation game online – Pro Flight Simulator.
Now there are a lot of flight simulators online to chose from. With that said it can be hard to determine which one is better than some of the others. Hopefully, through this Pro Flight Simulator review, you will have a better understanding of why Pro Flight Simulator is so much fun, as well as, understanding why it is so unique.
Pro Flight Simulator utilizes a powerful gaming engine that delivers a fully modeled world for you to fly in. It is complete with extremely accurate scenery and landmarks. It uses Google Earth so while flying in the game it looks just like it would if you were flying in real life. It gets even better.
The weather you experience in the simulator is the actual real world weather. Now, it’s important to note, you can change the weather too, however, you would like, but its cool that you can experience the same conditions real pilots are flying in. Besides the weather, the entire solar system and the moon are accurately displayed for the date and time of year, just as in real life.
A flight simulator can’t be a flight simulator without any planes, right? Well, rest assured that there is an enormous amount of highly detailed aircraft, all accurately detailed, for you to chose from. As of now, there are 120 aircraft to fly. What’s even cooler is that the simulators developers release new aircraft regularly for its customers to enjoy.
Despite the highlights above, with there being so many other online flight simulators…
Is Pro Flight Simulator really worth your while? And your money?
To make sure if this is the right simulator for you lets take a look at both the positives and negatives associated with this particular flight sim.
“…The quality of flying in this sim is exceptional as it responds realistically to control inputs. Uses some amazing real-world weather and physics to show what a real pilot can experience…” – Actual user comment from Fred Levy – NJ
Here are the positives:
Immensely Realistic Flying:
Pro Flight Simulator is the most realistic flight simulator you can find. With its unbelievable detail from the scenery, weather, and aircraft it is designed to be as close to the real thing as possible. The attention to detail is the first thing I noticed with this simulator.
I have played many other flight simulators and this one really was a lot more of a complete experience with the amount of incredible detail.
Selection of Aircraft:
The amount of fully detailed aircraft was the most fun for me. It’s natural you get tired of flying the same thing all the time. Am I right? So when you have, at a minimum, 120 aircraft to chose from it makes for a much more fun experience, to say the least.
Any and all types of planes are available. From the Wright Flyer to the Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet and everything in between. What’s even better is there are constantly new airplanes being added each month. Take it from me, someone who has been playing for awhile now, you will never run out of things to fly 🙂
Here just a few of the different aircraft types you can choose from:
Cessna 172 BaronCitation Jet
There are over 20,000 airports, fully and accurately detailed, of course, to fly in and out of. These are the same airports you can find all across the world. Include this with the extensive scenery and you have yourself a very enjoyable flight. Just remember to not crash 😉
Incredible Weather and Astronomical Display:
The real world weather feature of Pro Flight Simulator is amazing. So now when you are snowed in by a freak blizzard, instead of shoveling, you can test your flying skills and take off in it.
The accurate display of the stars and moon is something you won’t find with other simulators. It may sound trivial, but it reiterates that the developers were serious about detail when they built this extensive flight simulator.
While most people have high-speed internet, there are still those that don’t. If you have a slow connection it may take a couple hours until the game is completely downloaded which can be frustrating.
It is important to note, however, that you can choose the option of having physical DVDs sent to you for quick and easy installation when you buy Pro Flight Simulator.
This Is NOT An Arcade Game:
The problem some people face with simulators is they feel you can just get in and go. This is not the case. You must take the time to learn how to fly this simulator just like you would learn to fly a plane in real life.
If this sounds like too much work then an arcade type flying game would, most likely, be a better fit for you. However, if you have the patience and devotion required to learn this game then you will have lots of hours to fully enjoy Pro Flight Simulator.
