I am a pilot and can fly all the aircraft in the Flight sims. I have owned
every sim that microsoft has produced and found that all of them do not
present the aircraft realistically as compared to real flying, although the
latest 2004 version comes close but I don't believe that any of these sims
will ever capture the real thing. I flew the Wright Flyer in the latest sim
and kept it aloft for 5 minutes. This was not too realistic as compared to
the real craft. Anyway, they are fun to fly, even though not real.
