Innsbruck for Aerofly FS2

Orbx start to populate the world of Aerofly FS


A few months ago you may recall we reviewed an early access program from IPACS and IKARUS called Aerofly FS 2, a significant update to the original Aerofly FS 1 and a very promising simulator. The only real criticism I had at the time was the relatively small area (in global terms) it covered, which was not too shabby, when you consider it covered most of the airports along the west coast of America. There were in fact 180 of them throughout California, Nevada and Arizona. You also received eight super detailed cities comprising Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento, Las Vegas, Reno, Phoenix, Tucson and San Diego. My favourite was San Francisco, which had the highest concentration and diversity of buildings I’ve ever seen in a flight simulator. Yet with all this wonderful detail they managed to keep the frame rates at an unheard of level of over 100FPS. This of course depended on your hardware, which if you’re already a flight simmer will be no problem at all.
