You can pick from one of five aircraft and fly over the city of Las Vegas: there is more than 130 square miles is modeled for you to fly over and see, including more than 50 hotels done in amazing detail. You’ll see the Bellagio, the New York New York, and the Luxor. Check out the street traffic, too! Not many flight simulators give you that sight.
You get full rudder controls as well as brake, gear, and flap controls. You’ll enjoy the graphics of water splashing, tires smoking, and engine fires. Don’t crash, though, because you’ll see your wings ripped off, bends in your plane’s metal, and engines separating from the planes in some cases.
There are four different camera views: Chase, Tower, Cockpit, and a customizable one that you can set up yourself.
