    Awesome! My stepfather would love this game. He's a huge history buff and loves planes. Specially historical warplanes.
    He used to fly a glider and do aerobatics. He won many tournaments.
    Now he flies in games for fun.

    Agreed (on the graphics that is)
    Is it really a "sim" or is it more arcade for the general public?
    Microsoft released "Flight" but I've read that it isn't quite a sim at all.
    Microsoft Flight

    I still have my Microsoft force feedback joystick. It has the old controller connection, but works great!
    I've used it in Battlefront 2 and works very nice for space fighting

    They killed it, by turning it into some kind of childish game. Fly round popping balloons and other such lameness.

    I know!!!
    I did a quick search and there are some flight sims that work with google earth or google maps...
    Maybe you can fly around the world syncing up with google maps?
