Lift Off with the Best Flight Simulator
Flight simulators for the home-based personal computer are great. A person can fly virtually anywhere in the world in almost any type of aircraft. There are several flight simulators on the market today, so a person must be really careful which flight simulator they choose. My experience is that Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002 is better than ProPilot '99 Flight Simulator.
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002 is the best flight simulator on the market. First of all, the Microsoft 2002 Flight Simulator has the best graphics. The graphic designers paid a lot of attention to detail in designing the 2002 series. Consequently, other aircraft, weather, airports, approach lighting, and cockpit representations are extremely realistic. Another reason that Microsoft 2002 is the best flight simulator on the market is because of the real weather options it offers. With the 2002 series, a player can download real weather-as it is happening-from the internet so that the player can experience flight in real weather conditions in real time. Additionally, Micorsoft has an option where you can play with other persons on the internet. This option allows a player to communicate with another flyer over the internet. It enables the player to see the other flyer's landing lights and navigational lights, as well as hear their aircraft when it buzzes by. Finally, Microsoft offers many options for accessories. With Microsoft a player can use a special joystick designed for flight simulation that shimmies as the aircraft taxis down the runaway like a real aircraft does. Other accessories that can be used with Microsoft include the gamevoice software, 3-d acceleration, and flight videos. Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002 offers the most cutting age technology available in the market with graphics, interactive play, and accessories.
