Airshow Pilot Expansion for FSX1 reviews
One of the most limiting things about the flight simulation experience for most long-term users is the lack of scenarios and styles that you get when you play. You can usually just fly the aircraft, and do some very basic objectives. After a while, this can become a little tedious and mean that the system loses a little bit of its perspective and class – thankfully, though, Flight Simulator X is a little bit more sophisticated than previous releases.

The Airshow Pilot Expansion helps to alleviate much of this staleness and boredom for long-term FSX users. It gives you the chance to test out your flying skills to the very hilt, allowing you to participate in airshows across the globe and show the rest of the world what you are made of! It’s all about accuracy and dead-eye precision with your flying, ensuring that you get the very finest of angles and limits down to a T. It’s entirely up to you if you want to fly in one of the provided aircraft, or use any aircraft installed into your FSX system – the choice is entirely yours.
The skills and styles that you put into practice are entirely up to you – whether it’s some loops, some Immelmanns or some Cuban Eights it’s your choice. So long as you are able to wow the crowd and put on a good display, you can really pick your own style and selection from any of the aircraft you want to use. It’s a whole new perspective on the aircraft world as you get to showboat a little and really put yourself in the eyes of a professional showman, rather than just flying large freights from one side of the world ot the other.
This system gives you a new take on the flight simulator that we all love, but also adds so much more to the experience – this is like a whole new game installed into the popular system. Learning via the awesome in-built training programs, you can really master you flying skills and your tricks in here against AI competitors. When you feel that you have earned your stripes and are a competent show pilot, why not consider going online and competing against the many different pilots out there just waiting for you?
The competition that comes online with this expansion is huge, giving you a way to really rank yourself – and find the next level to aspire to. See how others are flying in the series and learn from the best as you take your simulation experience to a whole new level. You can even record your own flights, and download others flights, to see where you went wrong or what you done just right to get the position that you did.
This is a whole new style of competition that takes you out of the in-depth yet somewhat pedestrian style of the vanilla flight simulator, giving you something fresh and genuinely enjoyable to get your teeth stuck into for the foreseeable future – this package is well worth a look if this is your kind of flight simulation experience that lets you be a little more daring than usual.
A step-by-step explanation of the system, the rules, the new features and everything else that you might want or need to know as you take to the skies as a professional showman for the first time! This also lets you get the most out of your new expansion, giving you plenty of great tips and advice on how to maximize your flight gains
Skill levels are available letting the beginners take on the more easy going and shorter Sportsman difficulties, while the veterans can really challenge themselves and see how good they translate to the machine through the Advanced difficulty, which ramps things up a notch and makes it easier than ever to really enjoy yourself out there!
Compete with people from all across the world, or just take on the AI and compete from your own home airport – you can practice individual sections to get your technique right, or just practice sessions that will be put on in the future to get the right feel of each event that is upcoming. This lets you enter competitions at the Airshow with more confidence and belief in your skill level than ever before
Take on a series of unique and exciting events that change entirely depending on what aircraft you are using and the skill level of the pilots competing – from aerobatic moves that can be truly difficult to pull off to the loops and rolls of a smaller stunt plane, you can really push your skills to the very limit here
Simple visual gates are provided so you know where to fly and how to enter each section, giving you a simple reminder of what you need to do to get the crowds approval –now you just need to pull it off when the time comes!
Crowds have been totally revamped and improved to give you an even better atmosphere than ever before, giving you fresh events that really feel as lively and as engaging as they do in the real world. Tents, booths, cars, and flocks of people move around and watch on with amazement, and react to the events in the skies above – so make sure you get the crowd screaming with some high-end flying!
Fly a display routine for the air show events in any aircraft that you choose – so you could even turn up in a bulky Airbus and show the world that the aircraft’ size does not limit it from being truly exciting
Event designer tools have been included to make sure that you are able to make up your own events and test yourself in your favourite locations, and at your most enjoyable events and styles! Really push yourself to the highest possible success limits for yourself with this epic feature, and allow you to try the events out with other competitors online for even more fun and action!
