Community Q&A Interviews
Getting into the PC flight sim arena can be pretty difficult. There are the complexities of flying an aircraft, of navigating the environment, and if its a combat simulator then you need to know how to fly to fight and operate your weapon systems.
There are some pretty big differences between each of the simulators and complexity ranges from World War I and II manually controlled bombsights and reloading machine guns to lead computing gunsights and guided missiles of the more modern era.
This page will be a flight sim tutorial and resource listing linking to external resources that can help you get into the PC flight sim market and flying your plane in no-time.
