I’ve been using X-Plane for years and now even considering it in our Avionics design and testing. It’s also excellent for armchair flying or as a re-enforcer when learning to fly real airplanes. I used it very effectively to re-fly and visualize maneuvers  both before and after flight lessons.

Version 11 has been in the works for A LONG TIME, but was finally released out of beta.

Get it here or on Steam.

Happy pretend flying! Don’t forget to make airplane noises while doing it.
