Published on April 4th, 2011
If you like airplanes and you’re into flight simulators then ProFlightSimulator (Pro Flight Simulator) is definitely a must flight simulator for you. Pro Flight Simulator is (if not the most popular) one of the most popular flight simulator games online even until today.
This Pro Flight Simulator review I made will show you some of the features of ProFlightSimulator and see if this product is really worth your money by looking at the pros and cons of this software.
Pro Flight Simulator Reviews Part I – The contents and features of ProFlightSimulator
Let’s take a look at some of the many features that ProFlightSimulator has to offer. One of the great features this flight simulator has to offer is the realistic world scenery. And when I say “realistic world scenery”, I mean that the details are meticulously accurate throughout the entire globe including the buildings, structures and landmarks. Each scenery are separated so you only need to get the ones that you like. Watch the video below.
ProFlightSimulator is synchronize time with real-time clock. So if you are in New York and it’s night time, it’s also night time in the flight simulator. The clock will depend on the location you choose and your system clock. It even accurately maps the position of the Sun, Moon, and planets in the solar system, including the weather patterns in real-time which will deliver true-to-life weather experience.
There are thousands of realistic and detailed Airports and hundreds of wide variety of Aircraft, Helicopters, Aircraft Carriers, combat planes to choose from. New planes are added every now and then as included in the game update.
For a complete list of Aircraft In ProFlightSimulator refer to the link below.
ProFlighSimulator is packed with so realistic scenarios and lightning effects (Light Dynamics Models) that they are even used for modeling and aerodynamics research.
Now some of these features can also be found in other flight simulators, so how does ProFlightSimulator fare with other flight sims out there? This time, let’s take a look at the pros and cons of ProFlightSimulator for us to answer that question and for you to determine if this flight sim is really worth the money.
Pro Flight Simulator Reviews Part II – The Pros and Cons of ProFlightSimulator
The Pros of ProFlight Simulator
World Scenery and flying experience is extremely realistic – ProFlightSimulator was built to be as close as possible to real life situation, from aircraft, aircraft movements, terrain and even world time and planetary movements.
World Time and Mapping are detailed and accurate – Buildings and structures including landmarks are noticeably detailed in ProFlight Simulator. The size of the structures is scalable to real life structures. The weather is synchronized with our weather, so if it’s raining now while you’re playing, it’s also raining in the flight sim.
Hundreds of Aircraft to choose and even thousands of maps – This might sound overwhelming but you can actually select from hundreds of aircrafts from classic aircraft, carriers, Boeing, fighter jet planes to the latest aircraft available to date. And there are literally thousands of airports you can try to land and take off.
Killer bonus package that can only be found in ProFlight Simulator – when you order ProFlightSimulator, not only will you get the software and experience real-life flight simulations but you will also get 4 bonuses such as; the Interactive scenery designer, Kelpie Flight Planner (a mush have for flight customization), Aeron Combat Flight Simulator, and a Professional Airplane Flying Handbook.
Free update for Life and a money back guarantee – the free updates ensures that the software stays up-to-date and if you are not fully satisfied with the product, ProFlighSimulator also comes with a 60 days money back guarantee, no questions ask.
There are even more Pros about this product and you can read more about it in the download page, in which the link is available to you below this post.
The Cons of ProFlight Simulator
There a couple of cons which I have observed in ProFlight Simulator when I purchased and tried the flight sim myself.
First, because this flight sim is ordered online, you will have to download the flight simulator over the internet and it may take some time to completely download the entire package (especially if you have a slow internet connection).
But the case may not be the same for all, most have already high speed internet connection which are offered by your local ISP. But if you do not have an access to high speed connections, an alternative would be to get the DVD edition which is available in the member’s area. In this case it may be a good idea to upgrade to the DVD edition (you can do it at the members’ area).
The flight simulator might be a little bit overwhelming when you first used it. Well, since it’s made to be as close as possible to real life, it’s natural that you will get confused at first. There are hundreds of scenarios and aircraft to choose from but they are all organized by categories for your convenience.
Later on, like me, you will get a hang of it and enjoy the simulation.
And lastly, I don’t know if this is really a con or not, but let me just reiterate that ProFlightSimulator is a real-life simulation. Not only that the terrains, aircraft, scenery and time clock are real but also the flight controls are real. If you have not tried real life flight simulator before and you are used to play arcade type flying games, you might be shock and this might not be for you because the controls are different and it’s not that easy to control and fly an airplane compared to arcade or console type of flight games. It takes time and patience to learn and master the controls. Because it’s really based on real situations and real aircraft controls.
Pro Flight Simulator Reviews Part III – The Conclusion
After hours of trying and playing around with ProFlightSimulator, I have managed to fly and land an aircraft smoothly. Overall, ProFlightSimulator is a bang for the buck and is one of the best value flight sim available.
At first I was still hesitant to try ProFlightSimulator. When I first saw this, I said to myself “Oh no, not again, here’s another “realistic” flight simulator on the market”. But after I have gone through their page and carefully read the details of ProFlightSimulator, I was finally convinced to try the flight sim itself (anyway, it comes with a 60 day guarantee).
ProFlightSimulator has tons of things that you might probably experience for the first time. And if you are a gamer and/or a flight enthusiast, I bet it will keep you busy for quite some time.
ProFlighSimulator is not just about flying; it’s also about exploring the world we live in from a different view or angle. To wrapped things up, I’d give ProFlightSimulator a two thumbs up!
All in all, this is a great game that will appeal to new and veteran flight simulation fans alike.
