Flight simulation allows you to experience what it's really like to fly, without ever leaving your home. Providing an amazing, life-like experience, flight simulation is a popular pastime for millions of enthusiasts around the world and is relatively inexpensive to enjoy.
Today, flight simulations are advanced enough to allow you to fly almost any plane in existence, from any era in time, to anywhere on earth. To enhance the experience you can get extra scenery details, real-time weather and even real-time air traffic controllers.
Flight simulation software has come on leaps and bounds since the early days of computing, but you don't need to have a full cockpit at home to enjoy the experience. To become a flight 'simmer' and get involved with Flight Angels all you need is a PC capable of running Microsoft Flight Simulator X (most modern PCs can easily do so but its sensible to check first), the software itself and a joystick.
Once you've installed the software and plugged in your joystick, follow these basic tutorials from flight simmer Doofer911. These tutorials will take you through the basics. Get familiar with your cockpit, learn to takeoff and control your plane before learning how to land safely. Once you've mastered the basics, the sky's the limit!
