I hope Andy didn't get mad at some of us.


No I'm not mad at you lot. ;)

It's interesting to see peoples differing opinions on what a simulator is.

Alrot:
I agree.


A better question would be:

Is flight as close to training simulators as FSX etc?

These are the requirements for a Flight Simulator to be qualified to train flight crews. Microsoft Flight and Flight Simulator X do not meet these qualifications.

According to 14 CFR 61.1 (5) [Title 14 Aeronautics and Space; Chapter I Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation; Subchapter D Airmen; Part 61 Certification: Pilots, Flight Instructors, and Ground Instructors; Subpart A General; Special Federal Aviation Regulations], Flight Simulator means
1.   Chaser MK-1 Full Tower ATX Computer Case
2.   Core i7 3770K 1155 Processor OC to 4.7 GHz
3.   ASUS Maximus V Gene Motherboard
4.   EVGA GTX580 1536MB Video Card
5.   16 GB C8 G.SKI

I thinks it's a game for people who just want to fly, and not use systems

Another thing to make me think: Why did I even come back here?


Brandon, I made this thread so that people could stop arguing about Flight & so people who left because of the arguments could come back.

Actually, a lot of these comments were not about Flight specifically, and it has been a nice clean discussion about simulators for the most part. Maybe not totally on topic, but if you ask which one is a simulator, another may ask what is a simulator? I have enjoyed reading most of the comments on this thread.
  I believe the fans of Flight, FSX, and FS9 could sit at a round table and banter until the cows come home, same as religion and politics, I think. But.. no one should go away mad. Hundreds of people can express their opinions, but hundreds of people can never make a single unified decision.  8-)
