If the Alps looks the same as it does in this simulator in real life then I better pack my bags because Aerofly FS is one of the most beautiful and well optimised simulations out there.

Unfortunately, the detail Aerofly has put into its scenery has meant the sacrifice of detail in the simulation aspect of its simulator. Fuel mixtures, Air Traffic Control, A.I. aircraft and Autopilot are amongst a handful of things that are simply not present in Aerofly FS. It is very clear that Aerofly is meant to be a VFR simulator, with its comparatively small gameworld, small range of aircraft, and lack of radio communication, and whilst this is ultimately all-right, it may deter more experienced simmers from investing a lot of time into it.

Despite lacking in a detailed simulation, however, Aerofly FS has understood and captured the joys of flying and sight-seeing very well. And with its simple control-scheme and variable flight dynamics, its a considerable investment for someone looking to get into the flight-simulation genre.

First of all, i don't really find this a simulator, it's basically just FSX gone arcade. First thing i noticed when i was in a plane, there is not one button in the cockpits you can touch, something i love to do is start my planes on my own. You can't even assign keys to like Fuel Pump and such. The game just tosses you on the runway and thats it. There is also no Air Traffic Control and the world is completely dead, there is no traffic what so ever, no other planes, cars, or boats. The towns are also complete wastelands, it looks like they just took google earth scenery from Switzerland and placed them on the game world, and the only place where you can find some buildings is the airports. The graphics look nice but the scenery when you are up close are not nice to look at. From kilometers in the air, they look nice but on the ground not at all, at one point i was taxing off the runway onto a road that looked like someone took a smear of grey that was the road on a smear of green that was suppose to look like grass. This game is not worth it at this price and should be at half its price.

Great game, I recommand for some fun times.

I just wish the support was better, there is also a huge lack of communication from the devs...

The content is lacking... I was under the impression more content was coming this year with an updated graphics, but nothing has been spoken, they're just concentrated on the stupid version of their game on iphone...

1 install; that's all you get before the hoops begin!

Your purchasing the right to install this simulator without hassle ONCE; after that you have hoops to jump through; if you ever reformat; switch rigs or bought this on steam for the convenience of it being in your steam library your in for a shocker of "this key has already been registered" if you ever reformat, change hardware or switch machines.

This archaic form of DRM completely negates any product review I would have given as it overshadows every aspect of the simulator. This guilty until proven innocent DRM needs to go.

I always wanted to fly, and I bought aerofly FS a few months before starting real life flying lessons. The idea was to be in a Visual Flight Rules (VFR) airplane and familiarize myself with flying, but skip (unknown) procedural parts. aerofly FS isn’t a full flight simulator like MFSX or X-plane, but to my opinion, it succeeds very well in introducing VFR flying. Flight dynamics are accurate; I spent most in-game time in the Cessna 172 Skyhawk, flying VFR over Switzerland, and landing/taking off at all airstrips. I use real VFR circuit patterns and airspace classification information to add to the experience, and just fly VFR flights from one place to the other. I also do a bit of airwork, e.g. maneuvers (stall recovery, steep turns, slow flight, crosswind landings) and procedures (emergency, circuits), but lack of resistance of joystick/pedals and lack of G-force loadings are not making the experience very close to the real deal. But none of these is the game's fault. In that regard, I miss other AI traffic, radio telephony with ATC, simple procedures (e.g. start the engine, turn on landing lights, VOR navigation), and maybe recording capacities. Few additions are planned, but it is still unclear when and how they will be released. Nevertheless, I love flying & I love aerofly FS. Out.
