Hi all! and welcome to this review

As a student Pilot I really needed something Cheap, Realistic and Entertaining to help me with my Flying. Obviously its very expensive going up in a real aircraft and I needed something to provide me with all the extra information I need and This simulator ticks every box!

So whats the price? I paid 49 Pounds in Game.

The Microsoft Flight simulator range has been designed mainly for pilots / Retired pilots to welll...... Pretend they are really flying I guess? and mainly for help with real life flying.

This game... Well I cannot call it a game, more of a simulator as games are usually just for fun but this is educational and fun at the same time!

So what does Flight Simulator do?
Flight simulator has pretty much every airport in the world in its directory aswell as every Plane with full cockpit and functions
- As Microsoft say; Just like the real thing - And they are not lying!

The graphics on this simulator are absolutely amazing, while im pretending to fly I can see my house and all other places in the world!

Flight simulator X is the latest version, there is now a new add on avalable called Acceleration.

The flight simulator has an area that is made especially for trainee pilots. They have missions, all the flying lessons that exsist in real life teaching and ofcourse a fake Test! To get you ready for the all important real world test.

All lessons are done with an automated voice in what looks like and feels like a real plane. A true quality simulation.

There are many add on's available for the game, whether you want to fly a different plane, add new missions or fancy a change in scenery there is something for you.

Just jump in the plane, taxi through the real life airports with atc ( Air Traffic Control ) take off on a real life runway, see birds in the air ------ Land in New Zealand if you want...... Everything is on this simulator!

If you want to get this simulator I would Highly recommend getting a Joystick, Its no fun at all flying using the keyboard and that way its not at all realistic ***What Pilot Flies With A Keyboard??*** Hopefully none! lol

One Problemm... You must have quite a powerful computer to run Flight sim, On Mid settings you will require at least a gig of Ram and a 2GH processor to be safe.

It really is great, if you are a fan of aviation or a trainee Pilot then GET THIS! It really is worth it, I FLEW (haha) through my training because of this software.

I hope this has been helpful
Thanks, Nick
