Flight Simulation (Psion software)
|Platform(s)||Sinclair ZX81, Sinclair ZX Spectrum, Timex Sinclair 1000|
It was also marketed as Flug-Simulation in German. In the United States, Timex Sinclair marketed the ZX81 version as The Flight Simulator for the Timex Sinclair 1000 (the American version of the ZX81).
The program simulated the essential aspects of "a highly-manoeuvrable light aircraft" in flight. Despite the limitations of the ZX81, it offered a basic graphical view of the instrumentation and view through the front window, as well as navigational aids and a full-perspective moving view of the final runway approach.
The ZX81 version received a positive review from Popular Computing Weekly. As quoted on the packaging for the later ZX Spectrum version, they stated "No words can do justice to this most elegant of programs ... You will not see a better computer game till Psion produce one for the Spectrum".
