Computer games can keep you entertained for hours right? If you are one of those people addicted to gaming, then I have another game to add to your list. PC Airplane games. Heard of them before? Thought so, but have you tried the pro versions and seen what they are all about?
Pro Flight Sim games have been developed and improved on to the vast that the versions being released today resemblance actual aircraft cockpits, airports, real life scenery and best of all, flying experience. You probably would expect this since the gaming industry is constantly advancing in graphics, animations and sound effects.
This means the PC flight simulators are right on track when it comes to matching the technology and features of a real aircraft. The gamer can get the feel of flying an airplane as if you were sitting right there in the cockpit.
That is why pilots, airplane fans and the aviation industry alike are using PC airplane games. And the demand for these games seems to be increasing every year. A pilot is able to train and practice certain techniques from their PC. Same goes for people who would love to fly but can not. You are able to at least get a taste of flying in all sorts of countries and conditions but at a fraction of the cost and time.
What do you mean conditions and countries?
Well a flight simulation game tries to make every aspect of the game as realistic as possible. So you can choose you weather and wind conditions, and simulate emergency conditions too.
The exact time of the country you flying in is synchronized, not to mention the challenges of landing and taking off in various commercial airports around the world.
Now for a pilot who is using flight SIM software, they would be very critical of a game that falls short of providing the experience of real life flying. That is why the attention to detail when it comes to runway lighting, instruments, flying conditions and aircraft types is so important and why a pro flight sim version resembles reality.
