Mine was parked for a long time too but I must say that with the latest updates, I was very pleasantly surprised. For example some planes like the Airbus among others finally have a Cold and Dark mode. The FMS is now functional and coherent.
The 2 helicopters are great (also C&D).
There is a third party program to connect the ATC RC4 software.
I also use a small program "Aerofly-Wetterg" which allows to have a daily weather forecast from metar.
Between two sessions of P3Dv5, I like to launch a flight in AFs2, especially since there are more and more superb sceneries (freeware) made by talented individuals.
Give it another try, I don't think you will be disappointed.
Edit: have a look there, you will have an idea of the progress that has been made in terms of navigation, flight plan, Fmc/Fms and so...
