What is the best flight simulator?

Well, that’s certainly going to depend on what you want to get up to when you leave the calm of the runway. Microsoft Flight Simulator is great when it comes to general aviation or flying jets, but while you can fly some combat planes you can’t actually do any dogfighting.

For that, you will need to look into the likes of DCS World or even War Thunder to get your fix.

For a flight sim that has been around a little longer and therefore is very finely tuned you should also look at the excellent X-Plane 11.
