    the best ATC program. Very realistic.

    Disagree.  PF3 still has serious issues vectoring me to the FAF whereas RC4, with the same flight plan, does fine.

    So I dont buy its my "faulty" flight plan.

    PF3 works just fine for me, updated regularly and does as advertise. For serious Flight Simmers who strive for reality. That's not to say that non serious simmers can't enjoy PF3 too.

    Just MHO.

    And also for serious simmers who would like to be flown into mountains.

    I’ve had that in real life once. Told to turn left but ATC meant to say right and away from the mountains.

    I haven’t had too many issues like this with PF3.

    While you are correct that PF3 has no terrain awareness apart from airport elevations, I would appreciate a more serious attitude instead of such snide remarks.

    PF3 requires the same steps as done with real flight planning: If you rely on ATC to not crash into mountains, than you might get the same result in real life, too.

    Good point. The key to a successful ATC handing is in the preparation. Bad data in bad data out.

    Poor planning will most definitely cause terrain issues.

    Well, RC4 also has no terrain awareness but does have options for NOTAMS whereby "if practicle" is amended to its instructions.

    With RC4 I have not had any problems flying into mountains.

    With PF I have terrain problems all the time when in mountains.
