5 Stars Air plane lover
I purchased this for my 8 year old grandchild because he absolutely loves everything about aviation. Was hesitant about whether he would be able to understand the operations of this program. Wow…. he loaded the program and took off with it. Plays it for hours at at time flying different types of aircraft. I made a very good choice for him. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys airplanes.
5 Stars FS9
A very enjoyable game. Once I figured out the settings to make it more realistic, I have used it to enhance my flight training. More realistic crashes with explosions would, of course, make it that much cooler, but that isn’t the point of playing. Real time weather and realistic runways are helpful to practice on.
3 Stars FS2004
FS2004 is ok but the graphics are bad.WHEN YOU HIT THE SEA, THE PLANE JUST JUMPS UP. The plane does not catch on fire or blow up when you hit the runway to hard it just bounces up a little.
5 Stars As a flight training tool: 2004 version = excellent! Other versions = poor.
If you are a flight student or perhaps someone who is considering reactivating old flight certificates, this is an excellent tool. I learned about it through my flight school who recommend all of their students to use it frequently. I purchased this version after erroneously thinking the latest version – Flight Simulator X would suffice.
If you are looking to for a flight training devices, DO NOT USE MICROSOFT “FLIGHT SIMULATOR X”. Instead, use this version. It is the way to practice actual flight. The new version, Flight Simulator X is a sight-seeing program, and does not accurately simulate flight unlike advertised. I explained the problem with the new Flight Sim X’s problems to Microsoft, and asked for a refund which, they declined. To an untrained eye, it would appear to be similar. But to a trained pilot – particularly a pilot with an instrument rating, the new version is poor.
The 2004 version is excellent to practice instrument flight.
If you are looking for a game, there are no challenges or campaigns and you should look elsewhere for a game.
