Google Flight Simulator



Google Earth

Whenever you hear the word Flight Simulator , you always think about the Flight Simulator games from Microsoft . Now it seems even Google has entered the field too . The latest version of Google earth does offer this feature , although it is unpublicized , it is still a cool and beautiful feature .

Google recently added a Google sky feature to there Google Earth service ans it seems like they are planning on adding some more innovative features . To get this feature , you need to do the following things

  • Download the latest version of google earth
  • After exploring it for some time , press Ctrl + Alt + A . You will get a window as shown below
Google FLight Simulator

Just select your preferences , and start the flight . You wont be able to see the aircraft or the cockpit , but you do get a good set of flying controls.

You will need a fast internet connection to enjoy it so the landscapes can render together with the speed of the aircraft . Another good thing is that you can use this feature with the help of a joysticks or gamepads also .

I dont know why Google decided to hide this awesome feature . I hope they improve it in there future releases as this has got a lot of potential . And with the launch of google sky , a rocket trip through space will also be much appreciated . Let me know what you guys think about it.
