Chose an airplane and fly over the world- LITERALLY. You can fly your chosen plane over The Great Wall of China, Europe, Africa, even your own house!
100% Flight Freedom With Amazing Scenery
FlightSimulator flight simulation features highly detailed time of day modeling and can track the current computer clock time in order to correctly place the sun, moon, stars, etc. in their current and proper places relative to the earth.
If it's dawn in Sydney right now, it's dawn in the sim right now when you locate yourself in virtual Sydney.
The sun, moon, stars, and planets all follow their correct courses through the sky. The modeling also correctly takes into account seasonal effects so you have 24-hour days north of the Arctic Circle in the Summer...
You have 100% flight freedom to fly anywhere in the world. ProFlightSimulator maps the ENTIRE GLOBE with actual MILITARY world data with stunning realism. It is as realistic as it can get!
Control The Weather As You Wish...
In ProFlightSimulator, the weather is changeable. Experience the real effects of weather and wind! Add another dimension and watch your plane soar through gails, wind, rain, snow or even lightning . You have the control to choose this, or for added realism why not use real-life data.
This flight simulation can calculate your nearest airport and fetch the current METAR for that station from the NOAA weather service. The atmosphere parameters calculated are: temperature, dew point, pressure density, wind (three-dimensional) and visibility.
Over 120+ Airplanes & Helicopters To Fly
There are over 120+ aircraft to fly, MUCH MORE than what Microsoft Flight Simulator can offer.
The list of available aircraft varies from the Wright Brothers' first plane to today's state-of-the-art military fighter jets and even medical helicopters. As for available terrains, you can fly anywhere on the entire planet!
With realism from the sloped runways to the real-life controls, this sim makes you realize what you've been missing all these years...
FUN TIP: It really makes for an interesting experience when you release the brakes and find yourself rolling backwards down the runway!

Realistic Controls & Aircraft Modeling System

Prepare for emergency situations and learn to navigate by both old-fashioned and modern methods.
FUN TIP: Instrument and system failures are also accurately recreated. If the vacuum system fails, the HSI gyros spin down slowly with a corresponding degradation in response as well as a slowly increasing bias/error.
All those things that make flying a challenge are accurately recreated to give YOU the most "Real Life" Flying experience.
