Avro’s Flight Simulator (X-Plane)

Is it my new home video game?  Not quite, this is the flight simulator for the CF105 Avero Arrow project (described in my last blog).

It runs X-Plane, which allows engineers to fully simulate any aircraft, with a lot of programming and configuration. I’m sure they will accept you as a volunteer if you want to contribute some C language programming skills.

The test pilot for the Avro must have 5000 hours of jet fighter experience, plus ultra-light experience, as the jet will land and take off at about 55 mph.

You can get the home PC version for $29, but expect to spend a little more for 5 computers and three large screen plasma TVs shown here.  They say it gets a little warm in front of those screens!
