Review

Microsoft Flight Simulator is a flight simulator developed by Microsoft for its Windows operating system . It is the most used one among the few civil flight simulators of user level that exist presently, in part thanks to the general notions on aviation, in spite of the criticisms to the model of flight made by the communities of virtual air pilots. Flight Simulator is one of the most used ones worldwide, highly appreciated by enthusiastic amateurs, professional pilots, apprentices or newcomers. With its instructor and classes of flight, you can be initiated in the basic know-how on how to steer an airplane. It also contains a detailed meteorology system, a system of failures of the airplane and a 3D cabin almost complete, with the gadgets of a basic airplane. There is a great community for the Microsoft Flight Simulator, in part because of the structure of flight simulator that permits numerous modifications to be introduced. Also, there are many virtual companies, where the pilots can perform their tasks as virtual pilots, like in an air company. FS98 6.1 is generally considered as a "Service Pack", which offers small improvements, but a notable exception: the flight simulator also includes a helicopter -the Bell 206BIII JetRanger, as well as an improved interface that adds more airplanes, settings, and sounds.
