How To Fly Airplanes On Your Computer

Bored? Looking for a hobby to fill up some of your time? Have you ever thought about flying airplanes on your computer? Seriously? It’s possible with the right software. What kind of software?

The name of the software is Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Gold Edition.

Pilots often play with this software, but you don’t have to be a pilot to use it. For around $30 you can get the feel of flying a real aircraft. You don’t need an airplane.

The Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Gold Edition is not a Flight simulator, in the sense of a true Full flight simulator. You’re not going to get a job flying jets after you use this software.

That being said, this is probably the best flight simulator that’s out there, for the price.

You’ll more than likely need a certified geek to get the software up and running, because there are small glitches with this type of software. But don’t let that stop you from having fun.

Product Features

  • Choose from more than 80 missions that will show you the world with fun assignments from around the globe
  • Race alone or against friends online
  • Experience the day change from afternoon sun to evening dusk while flying at 32,000 feet
  • Keep track of how you’ve done on each mission and improve your skill levels until you’re ready for the next challenge
  • Fly from your local airport during the winter and then experience the change as you fly from the same airport in summer
  • Now you’re asking if you need a joystick to go along with the software. The Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Joystick (Silver/Black) is what you need if you’re dropping bombs at a distance or firing guns in a dog fight.

    Warning: Ladies, you may lose your men (for hours, at least) if you get this software for them. Maybe this is just what you need!

    Now, back to flying…
