Default Re: Any good flight sim games?

If you want a VERY realistic simulator that doesnt quite come with all the eye candy... X-plane. Great Great program, my family owns several airplanes so i believe i have an extra appreciation for the realism of it. And an unbelievable amount of airports, there are peoples' private grass runways that they mow in a field on there even. And fun little games like flying a waterbomber and flying to forest fires to put them out. Incredibly realistic and thorough as well as carrying a great price for such an advanced piece of software. It also comes with a utility to design your own planes and even design airfoils. It is in fact so realistic, that it's sanctioned by the FAA for a small portion of flight trainging and aircraft manufacturers have used the airfoil and aircraft design software to do an enormous amount of flight testing on concepts. Check it out:

Edit: And i dont know what the demo is like but im sure it cant hurt to check it out!
