    There once was, many years ago (around 1989), just such a product. It was called Blue Angels Formation Flight Simulation, by a company called Accolade. The formation was welded together and you...

    You are apparently thinking the same thing I am - that is, the X-Boxes of this world do seem to pack a whole lot of graphics and gaming capability into a specially designed and optimized hardware...

    Aerofly FS2 is said to be a work in progress, although how much more work will be done remains to be seen. I currently have FSX, FSXSE, XP10, XP11, FS2 and FlyInside installed and running (FlyInside...

    Having flown the 727 for many years and having ridden in the jump seat of a number of 737's, I would say that the cockpits of the two types are dimensionally the same. So the only difference would...

    Henry,

    One thing is certain - a good pair of rudder pedals will definitely make crosswind work more realistic, bearing in mind that the simulator in question will also be responsible for some of...

    At last, we may have a VR winner!

    At long last it appears that VR may become more reality than virtual in flight simulation. Having been overwhelmed by the concept at last year's FlightSim Expo, but not by the execution at the HTC...

    Well, the interesting thing I got out of this was that at long last ADSB would work world-wide. It was originally supposed to work like that way back when it was first proposed in the last...

    Great reminiscence!

    My own introduction to simulation, aside from using the real ones starting with USAF UPT in 1971, goes back to the Atari Star Raiders game; which, although not a flight...

    I agree with scanjet. Of course, it may well be that some will gravitate to a non-study-level simulation, and that looks like what we have here. But I see no mention of the all-important FMC. For...

    I shudder to think of the frame rate hit that animated branches and leaves on trees would impose on anything short of a Cray! Thing is, from any altitude greater than a few hundred feet, you can't...

    Hmmm.....I would have thought that it was pretty much self-evident! But then again, there are plenty of simmers around here with near-real-world levels of knowledge about aviation and I can see that...

    Got it a few days ago, and have tried it a few times. Very nice airplanes (especially the T-38). I get a good bit of periodic stutter with it, but I have yet to try adjusting any settings.

    I am a recent convert to X-Plane, specifically version 11, which I find to be fully the equal of, and superior in many ways to, FSX; and, by presumption, the various P3D versions. I will admit that...

    Listening carefully to the ATC audio, I am now inclined to take the thief's comment that he had experience on "Video Games" literally; that is, to exclude flight simulation on the order of FSX/P3D or...

    I see your point. I myself, although having one intro flight in a real helo, have barely mastered the art of rotary wing flight in FSX. In XPlane it is, for me at least, impossible!

    Even so, if...

    Well, Google Earth has a plethora of 3d objects, down to actual trees placed in the correct spot! I would assume that all of that would be on the table for a flight sim interface.

    Of course, it...

    FOV is not the answer you are looking for, because all it does is zoom in and out. The problem with this is that everything, both inside and outside of the airplane, is zoomed. What you (and I...

    I second the emotion as to the Quality Wings product. It looks great, inside the cockpit and out (more or less the equivalent of the Level D 767, perhaps a bit better looking on the outside) and...
