Default PC flight simulators


I was wondering if anyone in this NG play simulators?
If so, which one? What's the best out there, currently.

Take a look at:

http://www.x-plane.com/

There's some simulator companies that use this for FAA certification.
It's pretty complex, as you can have 10 computers running and all
networked together for the different views and gauges, etc.

I have a copy, but to tell the truth, the F-105 and F-4 simulators
seem pretty bogus to me.

Great, this seems to be exactly what I'm looking for.

Thank's!

I put "flight sim" in "Newsgroup Subscriptions" and got 13 hits. You will
probably get more play there.

They are not really simulators. They are just computer games.

The PC software you can get now, is better than many real simulators, in terms
of what it can do.

Sure, a pc sim/game is not the same as a multi million dollar system, nor is it
meant to, but you can certainly have a lot more fun, while still learning a lot
about aviation, aircraft, systems, navigation, etc.

I've always been polite to you even with a disagreement. Why are you all of
a sudden getting ****y with Art Kramer and me?

Bewildered,

Tex
