Flying games & Simulators

Never really been in to them...but!

Just got Blazing Angels from Ubisoft, and have downloaded the Microsoft FSX Demo.


Who flies a plane for 20 hours real time to land in Auckland?

Are joysticks best? Are there any flying games that are exciting?...should we play- 4-4-3?


Who likes flying?

Rob, there is no contest, IL2 Sturmovik series - full on WW2 dogfighting with brilliant graphics, flight modeling and damage modeling. Project yourself into WW2 online and fly practically every aircraft that was in service - it's brilliant. Includes Pacific, European and African theatre's. Here's a link on the best way to set it up because the series has a few addon packs and patches included now (you need them to match servers for online play)

I use a Saitek X52 flightstick set and would like to build some rudder pedals but haven't bothered yet. You can get something to do the job easily for about £30, all you need to ensure is that it has an analogue rudder control (usually a 'twist grip') or you won't manage to land a thing

If you have a 360 then get blazing angels on that, it's top quality although the story mode is really short. Co-op mode online is brilliant.

I flying games/simulators.

Flight Sim is great when you include add-ons, such as the Concorde add-on, the 707 add-on, the 737-X series add-on and ground textures.

The ubisoft fighter series are also brilliant, Sturmovik and the more modern Lock On: Modern Air Combat.

Got home from the game and celebrated a bit!

Then, about 20 minutes ago I'd thought I'd play some Blazing angels...........I'm still in the training mode btw!!

Anyways, I've had to come off as I feel soooooo sick, my stomachs going up and down all over the place, just like real air sickness!!!

"San, pass me the bag pet, there's a good girl!!"

Air Attack used to be the dogs, a bit arcadey for the anoraks but spent a good few hours playing it. I think it still survives on a Korean Server.

Any updated suggestions on the best flight simulator to get for iPhone / iPad ?

Not really interested in fantasizing that I'm a WW2 ace trying to shoot someone down - just the best experience of taking-off and landing a real plane.

Infinite Flight or X Plane are your best options. You won't get a huge amount of detail but it'll do the job

Someone in the real world has mentioned something beginning with a "Q" - does that mean anything to you ?
