Top Ten Things To Do In Microsoft Flight Simulator X

The top 10 favorite things to do in the best Microsoft game, Microsoft Flight Simulator X.
The Top Ten
1 Fly Airplanes in Free Flight Mode

You can just cruise an airplane and fly to just about any airport on Earth. This is an awesome game. You can just fly towards a city and land there.

However, it takes lots of practice to fly a plane and especially to land an airplane. It takes a while to learn how to land, but once you get used to the game, you will start to get better at it.

2 Fly Multiplayer
3 Fly Over the Clouds

So you can see the blue sky when down on the ground it's just rainy and may cause your airplane to run out of control. Then you might actually crash, but this only happens in Missions Mode. Over the clouds, is a blue sky that does not make your plane go out of control.

4 Fly from New York to Los Angeles

This could be fun because then you might actually be able to see all the cities and mountains along the way. It's so pretty, just as long as you don't run out of gas. Then you might have to start at another airport.

5 Do Missions

If you do a mission, you can get rewards in the game, so you can become an expert or even a master at flying planes. In fact, you might actually be able to fly a plane in real life. If you love doing missions, then you know what I am talking about.

6 Fly Over Mountains

It's a little tricky, but yet it is fun to fly an airplane right over the Rocky Mountains. Then you can get an amazing view of all the mountains and cities and even the ocean. This is probably one of the most fun things to do in the game.

7 Fly in a Helicopter

This could take weeks of practice to fly, but it could be a fun thing to do when you want to fly really high up. Just make sure to watch out for rocks, cliffs, and rainstorms.

I think it is very relaxing to follow the roads from your nearest airport and fly to your house (very fun!).

8 Join a Virtual Airline

Sign up for FSEconomy and do some flights for a virtual airline. It will keep you busy and will make your flights rewarding.

9 Fly Over Earths Oceans

The oceans you would fly over would be pretty because that's when you might be able to see your plane's shadow on the ocean. Unfortunately, you won't be able to sink down into the oceans, which makes it bad, but yet fun.

10 Fly from Paris to Milan

That could be an amazing flight in Europe just to see what it looks like at the airport in Milan, Italy. Would that be cool? Also, you might actually be able to see the Indian Ocean along the way.

The Contenders
11 Fly in a Jet

In a jet, you could just go zooming all the way from one city to another city 700 miles away. But in missions, it's a little bit tricky because if you lose balance, then your jet could go completely out of control. That's why it takes practice to fly a plane.

12 Fly from Bristol to Cardiff
13 Crash a Plane
14 Fly Inside Mountains

This could be really challenging. You would have to watch out for all the hills in the way. Otherwise, you could crash into one and easily lose your mission. Then you would have to start all over.

15 Do a Barrel Roll in a 747
16 Fly a Stunt Plane
17 Test Decommissioned Aircraft

Choose white variants or decommissioned type aircraft and test them!

18 Re-Enact a WWII Flight

Go back in time and re-fly missions such as the Dambusters raid from RAF Scampton to Germany or the Doolittle raid with the overhead pass in Japan.

19 Fly and Land Into Water by Water/Land Plane

There's just something about landing a plane on the water without crashing it.

20 Land on One of the Longest Runways in the World

Fly in Denver (KDEN) and land at runway 34L. Do experiments with fully loaded aircraft since the length of the runway is one of the world's longest! By Carl

I am not very good at this simulator, but I want to share some cool things.
