Dark Moment

The best Concorde?

Recommended Posts

A pal of mine who is a Concorde fanatic is thinking of getting into Flight Simulator for the first time simply to fly this aircraft. OK, I did nudge him a little. Big learning curve ahead, for sure, but I'll give him a hand. :)This said, I have rarely flown the aircraft myself to date, despite my admiration of the thing; simply because I tend to fly low and slow most of the time, and haven't paid much attention to the various flightsim versions. So I post just to ask the advice of those who know: what are the Concorde options for FS2004, either freeware or payware?Thanks muchly for any input...MarkMark "Dark Moment" BeaumontVP Fleet, DC-3 AirwaysTeam Member, MAAM-SIM[a href=http://www.swiremariners.com/cx.html" target="_blank]http://www.paxship.com/avsimlogo.jpg[/a]

As Graeme said, the SSTSIM Concorde is the most detailed/realistic Concorde presently available. Keep in mind, however, that your friend would be starting out with what is likely the most complicated aircraft in the FS world. I've been flying multi-engine aircraft "by the book" in FS for 20+ years and still found the SSTSIM to be challenging to the point of frustration at times. It's simply not flown like any other aircraft and I probably wouldn't recommend it for someone just starting out. Still, if he's a Concorde fanatic like you say, he'll probably appreciate the detail of the aircraft.
