The history of home flight simulation began over 20 years ago in 1982 when subLOGIC and Microsoft released the first version. From them on, different generations of aviation enthusiasts dived into a world of adventure and learning. Nowadays, there are other simulators out there that rival – and even surpass – Microsoft's simulator. How hard or how easy it is to transition from FSX to those other simulators? That's what I challenged myself to do. Starting with X-Plane.
