I am a new EC-145 pilot and I am looking for a good simulator to use for training. I have only used a computer flight simulator a few times, so I am very new to this. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Especially advice on which software to download and what programs are the most realistic. I did find a an EC145 on Fy Away and it says it is compatible with FSX. I'm assuming I would need to download FSX first? Our birds are equipped with Garmin 430s. I have down loaded their simulator and it works great! I'd really like to find a realistic EC145 program so that I could practice with the AFCS and get use to the FCDS instrument panel.
You will have to buy FSX, it's too big to download.
I would suggest getting FSX gold, then we can help with anything else.
Thanks! Are you familiar with the EC145 download that is listed on Fly
Away? Is it realistic enough for training? I'm so much concerned about the way that it flys. I'm look for realistic displays and equipment.
No I haven't used that one but I have flown a few others.
They are fairly easy to fly if you take the time, the previous flight Sim to FSX they were unrealistically hard to fly.
This is not the type of simulator that you pay a few hundred dollars an hour to fly but you will learn about that craft.
