Why Many Flying Schools Use Flight Simulator Games?

February 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 270

It does require lot of skills and extensive training to become a professional airline pilot. Lots of people are interested in this job and would like to start a career in aviation industry but flying a plane is very much different than driving a car and getting a pilot diploma is way tougher than getting a driving license.

Luckily, there is a large number of specialized flying schools around offering courses for aspiring pilots and flight crew, helping them to get the knowledge and practice needed for this challenging and demanding profession. The cost of such schools used to be enormous, but in recent years they have managed to reduce their prices considerably and the main reason for that price cut was the increased use of flight simulator systems.

There are many different types and models of flight simulators on the market and their usage and main purposes are different too. Most popular are flying simulation software applications and computer games and they will be our main focus of interest in this article.

Realistic experience of flying these systems offer combined with reasonable prices make them a popular choice for many flight enthusiast, aviation fans and flying schools alike. Of course, flight schools will need higher quality flight simulators with better features and higher level of realism.

The main purpose of such applications and games is to give a trainee pilot all necessary experience of flying and to avoid all dangers that flight in a real plane would involve. There are many different skills that pilots can acquire using such simulators. They can choose from many different airplanes and other types of aircraft to fly with. They can also get experience of flying in different weather conditions and in different countries and areas of the world.

Designers and developers of modern flight simulator games are putting lot of effort to create high quality products as much real-to-life as possible. The maps, landscapes and sceneries are very precise and realistic. Other popular features include changing seasons, night flying and flying in different climate and weather conditions. These options are now considered to be standard features and are included in most of the packages on the market.

The good thing about modern flight simulators is that people don't have to go to a flying school any longer to get the basic experience of flying. Lot of games are almost as good as high-end simulators and are perfect for flying hobbyists and aviation enthusiast to try their skills and knowledge on their own computers. That is a great way to get an insight into the secrets of flying and learn for a cheap price if professional pilot career is really what they want.

I'm a big fan of flying and love aviation games a lot. I've tried many different flight simulators and currently I'm playing Pro Flight Simulator. It has nice features and gives me a great and realistic flying experience.
