I have the version of Flight Simulator 2002 and 2000.
In standard version, the software is composed of 12 aircraft the various in particular new following planes: Cessna 208 Caravan, Boeing 747-400, Cessna 172S Skyhawk.
This famous simulator comprises new functions for example the interactive system of management of the air traffic (ATC), technology known as "Car-Gen" for the management of the landscapes and the vegetations.
The landscapes in 3d, the technique known as of autogen" makes it possible to d.avoir a great fluidity of animations which are superb.
Throughout flight, I discover sumptuous areas thanks to an exceptional realism. Moreover, the system of artificial intelligence makes it possible to simulate the traffic air, this technique makes the software even more attractive.
For going up in the cockpit it is necessary to climb the levels by obtaining the licences comparable with the real world of aviation In Flight simulator.
I have been able to choose the type of.plane, the weather, hours, the place (the USA, Europe, France).
Finally I choose my own flight, I can fly to France to Paris in the Alps, California, Australia.
Flight simulator enables me to fly in the world
I can make take off air base close to at home a Boeing 747..ittle extremely on a military airport which, accomodates Mirage 2000 exclusively.
To say to you, the data base appearing in Flight Simulator is complete presence of 21000 civil and military airports.
The interactivity is superb, j.entends the controller to speak to me in of course French! At the level of navigation, the virtual cockpits are well presented IT is necessary to have a graphics board 3d to profit from all the functionalities and improvement of this software.
It's necessary to have a graphics board of 32 Mo or better if possible in 3d.
On the level use of joystick is imperative, as from this moment piloting becomes a real pleasure.
I must acknowledge you that is difficult and more particularly take off and .
The takeover of plane is easier in the course of flight, and I must say that my instructor congratulates me more in flight .(I do not count any more the number of crashs..), obviously I can sees of the damage that I have been able to cause with my plane
This shows that the simulator does not leave anything randomly, the least error is fatal! This software requires many hours of flights for a total control of the various planes in particular the large planes like Boeing 747. This flight simulator which is with its 17th edition is d.une exceptional quality and exploits perfectly the technical improvements of the last marketed computers. Realism is splendid and the landscapes reproduced. The price is too expensive taste since this product is sold in Hypermarket with the price of 68 euros.

It should be recalled that following the tragic events from September 11 in New York, Microsoft withdrew from this software put on sale in October the turns of Wall Trade Center and this by respect towards the missing people.
The editors of play-videos, criticized after the attacks of September 11 in the United States for their software of drive to piloting intended for general public, defend themselves by pointing out the difference between the play and reality.
Flight Simulator 2000 is a PC game by Microsoft that allows you to fly some of the world?s top class airplanes through the simulation of your PC. As an upgrade from Flight Simulator 98 you have the ability to fly around any part of the world that has an airport in anything from a small private plane to the latest concorde using this superbly designed game. The most important part of this game in my view is the fact that it teaches you how to become a pilot with its accurate and realistic cockpit controls viewed as they would be in a really airplane. At first glance this game looks very complicated with controls all over the place but once you have been through the detailed tutorials you will be as good as a professional pilot. You have the choice out of three types of aircraft in the game, which are as follows: Private Planes: Cessna 182S and 182RG Schweizer 2-32 glider Sopwith Camel Extra 300s Commercial Planes: Boeing 737-400 Boeing 747-800 Concorde Learjet 45 The Helicopter Bell JetRanger III helicopter Each one of these aircraft have there own unique controls and styles of flight depending on the type and the size of the aircraft. Some of the new features that also come with the game are the advanced flight planner which is also know as a GPS which is a moving map that can track your position and ground speed along the route you have planned and the navigation and airport information from the global Jeppesen NavData database. This is by far a superior game to the 98 version and still manages to live up to the Flight Simulator 2002 standard. What attracts me to the game is the fact that it is so real from start to finish with everything that would be in a real plane. It has given me an interest into airplanes and the ways that they work. At first I felt a little confused with all of the controls and buttons but once you have got passed that st
age you realise how great it is for you to be able to do what the real pilots do. The realistic land view show just how much time and effort that Microsoft put into the graphics for this game and the cloud detail is superior to any other flight simulator out there. Flight Simulator 2000 can be purchased from any games retailer shop in The United Kingdom and The United States and is also available at jungle and amazon. The price for the game has dropped from £49.99 to £19.99 depending on where you purchase the game.
