Deeee, yup. Posted early early in the morning in a rage mode for not being able to find a good flyer. It looks like there are some decent options out there, some of which sound a bit pricey though.
Ouch, $1.5 an hour? How long ago was that, I can't imagine any game could possibly think its self to be worth that. I can see that if your sitting in a physical simulator or you are getting hours that can be logged towards your pilots license. I have a family member who has been considering a start up of a flight school using Red Bird simulators. Hours that are logged in them are FAA approved to put towards a pilot license, something like .8 of an hour on the more advanced ones and .5 hours on some of the cheaper ones.
@ bthylafh - funny that you were just coming across the book, I had downloaded DOSBox awhile back and found the images to run AOTP on it. Got it up and working, but it just didn't feel the same. I used to play other games a few years after that when the Dynamix made other games like the Falcon series. Man those were the days.
@CityEater - No, I also like it to be challenging like your really in the aircraft. As much fun as I had playing Star Fox on N64, all of the "Flight" games these days feel like a re-incarnation of it. Its just too kiddy for me, that's why I'm in search of the real deal in flight combat sims.
I've been aware of Take on Helicopters, but its pretty much Arma II's engine, but improved for flight mechanics. Its also only choppers and not at all combat related. It looks like it would be some fun, but the combat part missing takes away a lot from it, something I thoroughly enjoyed in Arma II.
