Airshow Pilot for Flight Simulator X - PC
It’s all about aerobatics!
Following on from the hugely successful Airliner, Cargo and Rescue Pilots comes the chance for FSX aviators to make their way in the world of display flying. This unique program brings the airshow to your desktop. Choose events to attend, plan your display, practice your aerobatics and wow the crowds. You can playback and watch your show to gauge your own performance. Win prizes and climb the rankings – against AI or real pilots using the online functions. Simulated flying is about to get a boost of adrenaline – hang on and aim high!
Hone your skills during a full calendar of events which will each feature an aerobatic contest in two difficulty categories - ‘Sportsman’ or ‘Advanced’ (as well as ‘Display’ for flying airliners or jet aircraft for display). Study the aerobatic figures that need to be flown, put in some practice and – when you’re confident enough - fly them in a competition situation.
A Flight Data Recorder will record your flight and will evaluate and rate your skills - you’ll be able to watch your flight to see how accurately you performed and which manoeuvres which need further practice. You’ll also be able to download other competitors’ flights and play them back to see how your opponents are shaping up!
Competition results are ranked throughout a season and every pilot will receive a world ranking. Trophies are reserved for only the best pilots in each category!
During competitions the airfield area will be filled with airshow crowds - people, tents, booths, cars, display aircraft and much more. You can even hear the crowd noise!
A set of Design Tools is included in Airshow Pilot - create your own aerobatic events in the Event Designer;create your own flight programs in the Flight Program Designer and even create your own airport populations in the Population Designer.
