Default any flight simulator fans?

OMG its like the most addictive game ever Lately i've been getting really good. Right now I'm doing an IFR from Toronto to Los Angeles. i <3 autopilot.

Can't wait for Flight simulator X. But too bad they don't make good crash effects in MS flight Sim. I downloaded a few addons so there's better graphics/textures. So anyone else enjoy this wonderful game?

I had a tech class in junior high school where part of it was flight. So we used MS flight sim. It was pretty cool, except he wouldn't let us use auto pilot or anything and it got pretty boring.

I got yelled at for acidently crashing a 747 into a building. Aparently my teacher thought I was trying to re create 9-11.

I played the new Flight Simulator demo that was recently released...
I enjoyed it, but had some issues with all of the controls as the 'tutorial' wasn't included in the demo.

I'd probally buy the game, but I think it'd get quite repetitive over time..
If you enjoy that game, perhaps you should consider being a pilot as a profession? Its certainly hard to get there, but if thats what you enjoy, go for it.

Combat flight sims I think I've got three or four, didn't reinstall them after the last format. A joystick is a must

You know what would be cool!. Having a game with 2 airplains racing each other. Than it starts off like CS but your in a plain and shoot the other plain!

what exactly happens when you crash? Is it just pure gayness?
