Good but could be better
I already had Aerofly on the iPad so thought I would do the decent thing and get it for the Mac. It’s a lengthy download especially if you have a slow connection like me but I left it to download overnight which wasn’t a problem. The majority of the download is the mesh and ground textures which are stunning when flying at altitude. I don’t have a joystick as yet so I’ve been controlling the aircraft from the trackpad which takes some getting used to but that’s my fault, not the sim. I would say the biggest disappointment is the lack of airport buildings and buildings in general. Only a handful of airfields have actual buildings on them which really knocks the realism, even if they were generic it would be a start but at an airport like Geneva there’s nothing which in my view is unacceptable for a full priced sim designed for desktops rather than handheld devices. You won’t find any generic buildings outside the vicinity of airfields either and certainly no landmarks. There are no AI aircraft although there are some unpainted static aircraft at Zurich. Altogether a great sim for flying around, the textures are really high resolution but the lack of 3D scenery lets it down considerably for me.
