    Review: OnCourse Software - PF3 ATC

    Having air traffic control is an important part of the sim experience, but for most popular flight simulators the built-in ATC is lacking in many ways.

Reviewer Michael Hayward found the improvement like night and day and says you won't find a better ATC option than PF3.
