Recently I have become strangely involved with the Online World of Flight Simulation, using the Microsoft Flight Simulator.
The simulator is coupled with a number of features that carries it into the real world environment, where Simulator Captains and Private Pilots, come together with a very experienced On-Line Air Traffic Control team, that makes the Simulator become almost true to life.
In an Air Transport capacity, Flight Crew can register almost true-to-life flight plans, with on-line tools such as SimBrief, and Navigraph, and file them with VatSim, and that heightens the experience almost to a point of a real world environment.
Obtaining flight and taxi clearance to a designated runway, using real world weather scenarios, then taking off, subject to flight levels and headings, or fly under Autopilot to your destination, where another controller guides you into land.
