  • Summary: Includes a wide variety of aircraft for you to fly-from a new Cessna 172S single-engine trainer and a Caravan floatplane to the Boeing 747-400 jumbo jet. You can splash down in a lake, hover in the Bell 206B JetRanger III helicopter, or practice aerobatics in the Extra 300S. [Microsoft]

  1. It's unquestionably FS 2002's surprisingly glorious and massively modified visual presentation that makes this the finest civilian flight simulation ever to appear.
  2. Delivers everything that a dedicated flight-simmer could ask for. This game will be a very hard act to follow for a long time to come. [Jan 2002, p.58]
  3. It's hard to think of anything that you might want to do in civilian flight that you can't do here...an incredible piece of software.
  4. The most impressive civilian sim ever. [Feb 2002, p.97]

    A must-have for any armchair pilot.
  6. The addition of several features and planes, such as Multiplayer, ATC, Auto Generated Scenery, and the Cessna Caravan Amphibian certainly make the game much more interesting than previous versions.

    Best Bit: Downloadable live weather.

    By far the best version yet...if you are a pilot want to be...this is a must have!

    Excellently detailed in every respect. The smallest details have been included to make this a great game.

    Great Graphics and Realism! Great aircraft detail! The Learn to fly segment in which you earn your "pilots license" is very well thought out. Uses the actual radio frequencies of my local airports! Collapse
