  • What is the Flight Sim Network

    Last Updated: 9/6/2019

    The Flight Sim Network is the next generation of services previously offered (mostly to FSEconomy Players) as Elite Star Services. The various bits and pieces from a few different sites created over the years have been compiled into a condensed version of the most popular features.

    The Flight Sim Network site also works in concert with the Star Alliance, which is something of a relaxed Virtual Airline more geared toward the use of ACARS to record detailed flight information without the need to follow any of the other procedures often required by Virtual Airlines.

    Another major change is that we are now able to offer web services to some small flight groups and virtual airlines, Contact Us for more information on hosting or complimenting your existing setup with a custom site in the Flight Sim Network.

      You could perhaps be forgiven for missing the release of Prepar3D v5 given it was released right in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic and with around a week’s notice to the general public. On the other hand, those who did grab the latest release from the Lockheed Martin team have perhaps used a portion of the lockdown to hone their flight simulation skills all the more.

    • Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator Review
      by Ian Stephens on October 24, 2019 at 9:35 PM

      Given the early access releases of Aerofly FS 2, it might be tempting to dismiss the program and move on to other more established flight sim programs. However, the fact is, once you do give it a try you will very likely find yourself begrudgingly liking what is unfolding before you. And while there are still ways to go in terms of high-resolution add-ons and scenery (which will surely come with time) the initial feeling is one of positivity, even if there is a longing for more quantity of such scenery and airports.
