So, you want to be a pilot isn't it? Okay, you can head up to our pilot software page and choose a software based on your flight simulator platform.
For FSX and P3D, we prefer for vPilot, but the other also good.
For FS2004 and FS2002 user, you can use FSInn, but for more lighter software, you can use Squawkbox.
And there is only one option for X-Plane, use XSquawkbox.
