Macworld Buying Advice
Though we struggled to master X-Plane, that's no slight on the software. It's testimony to its realism. In fact, compared to other flight sims we've encountered, the control system is remarkably intuitive. Billed as the most comprehensive flight simulator available and used in commercial schools to train potential pilots, we can't recommend it enough.
