I only had a few hours to try many of the new features, but what impressed me most was the ability to practice instrument proceedures.
I flew in IFR conditions on an IFR flight plan from Lancaster airport, to Harrisburg international airport in Pennsylvania. The simulated radar vectors were spot on! I was given an intercept heading for the ILS and was able to fly the approach.
I flew in the Samara region of Russia as well, and the airport and the Volga river looked much like it did when I visited that area this year.
I only flew online for a short time, as it seemed that I was one of only a few people to have installed the software today.
The functions of using the program on a second computer for flight instruction looks great too.
This was money well spent!
I did have one lock up on my Pentium 3 1000, with ge-force 2 Ultra, but I am not sure what the cause could be related to.
So far I am very pleased!
