    I have read nothing but awful things about Flight. They promote it as a free download that will work without the need for a serious gaming rig, but you only get a few odd picks for aircraft and can only fly around Hawaii unless you pay for more. Regular people seem to think its OK at best but simming enthusiasts are thoroughly disgusted by it

    I have 1 add-on package left to master on FS9: PMDG's 747-400 'Queen of the Skies'. Then I'll move on to either FSX or X-Plane

    FSX or X-Plane

    I have FSX, but am not a real-life pilot. I found the first few training lessons to be good, but then the next lesson I tried was dramatically harder due to lack of "instruction". Does X-Plane have better training, or do they all pretty much assume you generally know how to fly?

    Training aside, which is considered to be the better sim, FSX or X-Plane?

    Microsoft gave up and pulled the plug on the game some time ago, so X plane will be the only game in town for the foreseeable future...

    X-Plane is generally regarded as having slightly better flight dynamics. That said, having taken a few lessons, you know that there's a huge gap between how planes handle in the sim vs the real world.

    In my case, I'll take the enhanced visual fidelity and more detailed VCs of FSX such that I have a better sight picture, even at the expense of slightly inferior handling.

    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    Here is a video I did almost 8 years ago, when I was going full on with Flight Simulator. I have a Mac now, so unfortunately, I can't play it anymore. (Yes, I know I can install Windows, but I rather not)

    Man thats sweet! My laptop won't reliably run FSX, since its a 32 bit program and my laptop is 64 bit. It makes me sad.
    Follow me on Twitter and friend me on Facebook.
