Pro Flight Simulator Vs X-Plane

Thinking of buying a new flight simulator which one is better xplane 9 or proflight simulator ?

X-Plane’s physics model is useful for experimental aircraft, aircraft you design, theoretical aircraft, and aircraft flying in unusual flight regimes (such as aerobatics, stalls, spins, etc.). Pro Flight Simulator  table-driven model is more suited to precise simulation of real-world existing aircraft in normal flight regimes, such as a 747 during a normal flight. Physics simulation provides good general accuracy but doesn’t provide exact replication of real-world aircraft.

AirCraft - pro flight simulator vs x-plane
X-Plane comes with 29 aircraft spanning the aviation industry (and history), and several hundred more are freely downloadable from the internet.

One of the most interesting feature of the ProFlight Simulator is the Pro Flight Simulator Download which contains all the 120 aircraft ranging from the 1903 Wright Flyer to the latest technologically advanced military jets. The game also enables the players to play in the various beautiful airports of the world with NASA Flight Models and constantly changing climate conditions.

Realistic Flying Experience pro flight simulator vs x-plane

X-Plane includes scenery for the entire continental U.S.* You can land at any of thousands of airports, as well as test your mettle on aircraft carriers, helipads on building tops, frigates that pitch and roll in the waves, and oil rigs. Weather is variable from clear skies and high visibility to thunderstorms with controllable wind, wind shear, turbulence, and microbursts. Rain, snow and clouds are available for an instrument flying challenge, and thermals are available for the gliders! X-Plane can download real weather data from the internet, allowing you to fly in actual current conditions!

A main attraction of the Proflight Simulator is the realistic flying experience offered by the game with its huge collection of real life terrains, planetary alignments and motions and also the aircraft reactions. It takes the gaming experience to another level.  The game also allows you to position yourself on the map and view realistic weather patterns as you soar through all parts of the world’s climate. It is a simulator that allows you to feel as if you are realistically flying on an airplane.

Controls pro flight simulator vs x-plane

X-Plane includes Plane-Maker which allows you to create your own airplanes, and World-Maker which lets you create your own scenery. Also included is Weather Briefer which produces a weather briefing based on actual weather conditions downloaded from the net.

The ProFlight Simulator also offers a virtual control of the cockpits and the graphics is so advanced that the aerial view of the airports and even the car headlight on the street looks real. It’s dynamic and realistic flight controls are as good as real and it is often said that one can learn to fly a real airplane just by mastering this game. An additional feature available with the ProFlight Simulator game is the detailed time of the day model tracking system which helps in obtaining the current world time. The advanced modeling system present in the game helps in making adjustments to take into account various weather effects and climatic changes.

If you are looking specifically for very accurate simulation of the systems aboard a real-world airliner, you’re probably better off with Pro Flight Simulator.
