If you’re looking for a great aeroplane simulator game then I’m glad you found this website. I came upon one that I really like. It’s called Virtual Pilot 3D.
What kind of plane do you want to fly? You can start small with a Beechcraft or a Cessna then work your way up to the big boys. How would you like to fly a B-2 stealth bomber? Is a Sikorsky helicopter is more to your liking? Does a Boeing 787 Dreamliner strike your fancy? Or put yourself in the cockpit of a World War II German fighter – the Messerschmitt BF-109. A hang glider? A zeppelin? Santa Claus’ Sleigh? They have all of that! Virtual Pilot 3D has over 200 planes to choose from. Click here for a list of aircraft
What airport would you like to take off from? You’ll have many to choose from – the game has over 25,000 airports. Fly from Sydney to Perth. How about LAX to JFK? You can take off from and land at nearly any airport in the world.
How about realism? The scenery is fantastic and the cockpit displays look authentic.
Take off is not too difficult, but landing a plane is challenging.
Overall, Virtual Pilot 3D is very enjoyable and I recommend that you at least give it a try. The makers of the game offer a “100% Risk Free Unconditional Money-Back Guarantee. If you’re not satisfied for any reason- I’ll refund your money…no questions asked.”
In 1982, Microsoft Flight Simulator was released in an attempt to show consumers the graphical differences in the new 16-bit computers versus the older 8-bit ones. Consumers liked the game and flight simulators for PC users was born.
A combat flight simulator called Strike Commander was released in 1993. In it, players get paid for completing missions which enables them to buy more advanced aircraft. Another combat flight simulator was F-22 first released in 1996.
Microsoft introduced newer versions of their flight sim game up until Flight Simulator X (FSX) in 2006. Three years later, Microsoft laid off the entire Flight Simulator team leaving a void in the aeroplane simulator games market.
In 2012, that void was filled with the release of Virtual Pilot 3D. (Review of this newest flight sim game to follow.)
Hey, Michael here:
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my aeroplane simulator blog. I hope to review various flight simulator games on this site while giving recommendations as to their usability. How authentic are the cockpit views? Is the outside scenery realistic? Do they have many planes to choose from? Do I find that I lose track of time while playing the game? These are some of the questions I will try to answer. I hope you will find this information useful.
