A Review of the Best New Flight Simulator 2022
We have seen so many flight simulators in our time that it is literally impossible for us to be surprised by anything. We have played the arcade flight simulator games as kids and spent many enjoyable hours with them. We then graduated to using the more sophisticated Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 and Pro Flight Simulator, which really advanced our love of flying and helped us pick precious skills.
But none of the flight simulators that we have tried have made as much of an impression on us as Virtual Pilot 3D 2022. This is by far the best new flight simulator 2022 we have tried and by a fair distance too. It has almost all of the features that Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 and Pro Flight Simulator have, and more – much more! Remarkably, it costs a fraction of what the above mentioned flight simulators would cost you.

Virtual Pilot 3D 2022 was created by a team of 3 young engineers – Mark Duran, John Irwin and Ozil Aguirre. The trio wanted to create a flight simulator that addressed some of the inefficiencies of the popular flight simulators used in the market while holding on to all the great features. The young developers of the software wanted to create a flight simulator in the true sense of the term – by closely simulating real world conditions.
When we tried using Virtual Pilot 3D 2022, we were surprised at how authentic the controls were. It was easy enough for us to pick up the techniques needed to master the software, as we have spent a lifetime using flight simulators. But if you are someone who is completely new, we suggest going through the detailed instructional videos on the official website of Virtual Pilot 3D 2022 to pick up the basics.

We were just stunned by how realistic the flight simulator was and how closely it simulated real flying conditions. The cockpits were authentic and genuine, remarkably accurate, especially those of large passenger planes such as Boeing and Airbus that we tried. Nothing has been neglected – every control, major and minor, has been covered.
We loved how realistic the weather conditions were. Let’s consider a situation where you are flying a Boeing passenger plane from the Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris to the John F. Kennedy airport in New York. This flight simulator gets weather updates in real-time from the NOAA. So, if it has been raining at the moment in Paris, you will experience rain as you take off from the Charles de Gaulle Airport. And if there is bright sunshine at the time you land at the John F. Kennedy airport, you will experience exactly that.
In fact, the whole experience is remarkable. Also, when you fly from Paris to New York, you are expected to follow the official airline routes and cannot just fly any way you like. You must follow the standard procedures for landing and taking off – no exceptions granted to anyone.
And what about the images you see below, of Paris, the French Alps as you pass it by, the vast expanse of the Atlantic Ocean, of the New York skylights? They are real satellite images that are taken from Google Maps, accurate, vivid and authentic.
There is nothing quite like this available on either Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 or with Pro Flight Simulator 2022. Virtual Pilot 3D 2022 is in a league of its own.
Your flying skills will be really tested with this software. You will learn how it is like to fly under tough weather conditions. You will learn how to land at crowded airports and to follow standard procedures for landing and takeoff. Yes, you can go on auto-pilot as well and enjoy the special sights below as the aircraft handles itself.
We were also impressed by the fact that Virtual Pilot 3D 2022 is certified by the U.S. FAA. The U.S. FAA has approved its use in flying schools across the United States. This is remarkable indeed. There are very few flight simulators out there that carry this certification and none that we know of that have such authentic controls.
And here’s the best part – Virtual Pilot 3D 2022 costs just $67. This is a great price indeed when you consider that any flight simulator of its quality would cost hundreds of dollars. We would like to remind you that there is a 60-day money-back guarantee.
