Microsoft Flight Simulator X, Flight Simulator 2004, and X-Plane 9 all provide a platform for sophisticated multi-user flying. Several global networks exist to allow pilots from all around the world to fly together in simulated air traffic controlled environments.
Any number of organizations, including Hovercontrol, provide multi-user flight environments for more specialized purposes. Hovercontrol provides a multi-user flight environment for the primary purpose of helicopter flight simulation activities and helicopter flight training activities.
Individual users can also connect directly to one another, provided they are using the same type and version of simulator, in order to fly together. However, this mode of flying together does not offer the full set of capabilities that a true multi-user flight environment can. In some environments, like that at Hovercontrol, users of all 3 major flight simulation softwares can fly together.
We encourage members of Hovercontrol to participate in our flight environment, whether it be for training or entertainment/friendship.
