My Experience

I have had this software since its launch and have enjoyed playing the game ever since. The reason I like this software a lot is because I feel that I am not just doing casual gaming, but rather learning something and enjoying the process thoroughly overall. Even though, in the beginning I was a bit overwhelmed by the plethora of choices offered by the software ranging from which planes to choose, interchangeable weather conditions, where to fly, learning the controls of various planes and so on. But, slowly I got accustomed to the game and can say that this is easily one of the best purchases I’ve ever made.

Overall a very Happy Customer

I have recommended this software to various family members and friends. And, one of the things I really like about this software is that the makers are generous enough to let us have multiple licenses to run this flight simulation software on multiple PCs. I am definitely not surprised at the growing numbers of more and more serious as well as casual gamers and flight simulation enthusiasts.
