Sims For Mac

Recommended Posts

Buy Xplane 9. I have both a PC and Mac and both sims, Xplane is alot more smooth and everything is free. There is alot of difference between how helicopters fly between the 2 and the designer of Xpane test runs helicopters flight characteristics through a real pilot. Personally I use Xplane for instrument practice, and have gone as far to instal "xsquawkbox" which allows you to connect to an extremely in depth live online ATC which operates around the world. Pretty cool to test your instrument skills while talking to a live ATC and other aircraft on the same approach.

 

Obviously it is not the real thing nor should it be thought of as such. Still and excellent training aid for the instrument side of things.

 

Thanks for the info Wizard, are you recommending Xplane 9 vs. Xplane 10 which is available now? What kind of hardware/controllers are you using?

 

Thanks!

I have xplane 9, its cheap and has excellent graphics and physics. I have the saitek X52 joystick and the saitek flight pedals. Can't say enough about how it helps for IFR stuff over the sim.
