Flight Simulator Extensions
The flight simulators from Microsoft have improved much over the years. A great deal of attention has been paid to realistic flight behaviour and the graphical representation of the aircraft and its surroundings. Planning of the flight, flight lessons, weather circumstances and even radio contact are currently part of the simulation.The only thing that is missing is a cockpit with all the bells and whistles, so that we won’t have to use the keyboard, and display the relevant information (height, speed, etc.) on a real instrument panel surrounding us.
