Recommendations for flight simulator?

Unread post by Lowaldo » Mon Dec 02, 2019 9:49 am

Hi Everyone.

Have been using MS Flight Simulator X the last few years with some PMDG A/C. Just got my Laptop formatted and fixed. Need to get a new sim. Any recommendations on the best way to get back on to the B737 flight deck. All I know is MFS. Any better options please? PMDG worked for me.

Thank you.

If you have a decent PC, maybe give X-Plane 11 a try. The Zibo 737, link: ... oad-links/, is arguably the best free aircraft the flight sim community has ever released. It trumps the old PMDG 737 and rivals the new one well (in my opinion). As for FSX, I don't know of anything better than the new PMDG 737 NGXu.

Kind regards,
