What is Aerofly FS2 ?
PCsimulators.org have been keenly following the development of this next gen flight sim. We were initially blown away by the quality of its photorealistic graphics when we first saw an advert for it on youtube. After that we decided to investigate further and boy we were not disappointed.
IPACS are the developers of this in development sim and already have a number of products to their name including Aerofly FS (the first), Aerofly RC7 about radio controlled flight simulation. We have to mention that IPACS have always been very cooperative, responsive and always make time to reply to any questions. We are very impressed with their customer service and Press relations. Dr Torsten Hans of IPAC kindly took some time to talk to pcsimulators.org about the development of one of the best flight simulators on the market. Read on to see what he had to say.
