Ready for Take Off

Recommended Posts

A quick zip over to the north side of Majorca in Aerosoft's new flying school sim, Ready For Take Off, to check out the photo terrain. Below you can see Soller and Puerto de Soller, which is very nice in real life, especially if you like seafood lol and there's a very old cool train you can get from the main town of Soller, which is  up the hill (get the tram, it's very steep if you walk); the train goes through the lemon and orange groves in the mountains and finishes up in Palma.

This is the Baron you get in the sim, the other aeroplane being an A320. You have to do a few mandatory basic 'flying lessons' before the sim will let you fly off by yourself wherever you like, it's a pretty basic flight sim, but it gets very good frame rates:

Hmmm. indeed! It looks quite nice, in fact the copilot in the Baron is the flightsim equivalent of a supermodel! :) However, the plane seems to be very twitchy, responding more like an F-16 than a turbo twin. EDIT Unless the guy who posted the vid really was flying by keyboard... Autopliot commanding a VERTICAL climb to get back on course? Wow! All you get for a landing that would have trashed the plane and possibly it's occupants is a sad smiley, yet the tutorial is completed? It should have at least taken you back to final to have you try again :)

It might have promise with an update or two..
