If this is possible in GTAV why not in a flight sim yet?

I don't specifically know what you are referring to.

 

But..Because:

 

- It is beyond the scope/business model of a "Flight Simulator"

- GTA V is built as a small (though big for a video game) area and those extra details are a necessity.

- FS is built to simulate the entire globe. 

- GTA, I am assuming, is a far more successful franchise than Flight Simulator, having much more manpower and resources devoted to development items that allows them to build, test and deliver those extra eye candy features and actions, etc.

 

That's just scratching the surface...

it takes approx 5 minutes for a plane in gta 5 to go from one end point of a map the the other point. 

flight simulator covers the entire world
