Free Flight Simulator Download

Updated on April 3, 2011

Where to Download the Best Free Flight Simulator

Many flight simulator lovers scout the internet for realistic flight simulator games. Trouble is they can cost almost as much as going out and getting some real flight training! Well this hub provides you with useful information on the best free flight simulator download available.

Many people have the Google Earth program already on their computer. (If you don't, you can download it for free, here). However, few people know that the Google Earth program contains a free 3D flight simulator feature.

This wonderful addition allows you to fly over your favourite places in your choice of a F-16 "Viper" or SR22 aeroplane. With the 3D building feature clicked on you can soar up close to your favourite architectural sites like the Empire State Building, Great Wall of China or the Sydney Opera House.

To access the flight simulator program, open Google Earth and hit Ctrl + Alt + A and the start menu will open. Select your plane and place of take off (your current location or an airport) and you're ready to take to the air!

I hope you've enjoyed this hub and have fun conquering the air! Below is a video demonstration of the Google Earth flight simulator.

      I used to fly gyros believe it or not - they are like flying eggbeaters - lol! Too old and scaredy cat to do it any more now, so maybe a flight simulator will have to be enough for cheap thrills in my old age.
