What is P3D?
It’s a visual simulation platform that allows users whose hobby is flying to train and get more experience with flight simulators, there are many Flight Simulators on the market, including:
- XPlane10/Xplane11 (Beta)
With many flying hours on both on FSX and P3D, P3D remains my standout favourite.
CPU – Quad Core 3.0GHZ
Memory – 4GB+
Hard Drive = 30GB and an SSD is strongly recommended
Graphics Card – at least 4GB or better.
Direct x – At least Direct x 11
What makes P3D such a compelling and enjoyable experience?
I really enjoy P3D because of the bare minimum graphics even before you get add-ons there are so many add-ons for P3D including, Airliners, Scenery (including Orbx) Airports all adding to the realism.
The link below demonstrates the level of realism and detail you can expect from P3D:
Is it interesting/who do I fly with?
For action and FPS folk – no, however for flight sim enthusiasts then YES a big YES!
There is nothing better than doing a flight from your favourite destination to somewhere hot and sunny! The best part about it, you can make it as realistic as you want the choice is YOURS!
I love joining all my flight sim buddies, on a group session for a few hours on a Friday night, flying with VPILOT allows you to tune in and talk to live ATC (Air Traffic Control) throughout the flight simulation world, making the experience all the more enjoyable!
With options to fly offline or online through VPILOT. VPILOT is an online ATC system that allows you to connect to the Vatsim network and see all sorts of different aircraft. I currently fly with a Virtual Aviation group who provide a whole range of additional software to make the experience more realistic and enjoyable.
The focus around community helps make P3D, with its realistic graphics, sound and simulation, one of the best online simulation experiences you can have.
