Chuck Yeager's Advanced Flight Simulator
DOS - 1987
Description of Chuck Yeager's Advanced Flight Simulator
Discover Chuck Yeager's Advanced Flight Simulator (also known as Chuck Yeager's Advanced Flight Trainer), an excellent game of 1987. With 1st-person perspective, the publisher Electronic Arts, Inc. had wonderful ideas around flight.
This is the first version of Edward "Ned" Lerner's Chuck Yeager's Advanced Flight Trainer, a popular non-military flight sim. The game lets you test pilot 14 different airplanes in different modes: racing, formation flying, and stunt flying to name a few. Although it is naturally graphically primitive compared to version 2.0, AFT makes the best out of a 4-color CGA pallete, producing crisp polygon-based buildings and terrain. The game has numerous helpful features that set the standard for the genre, including the "black box recorder" used to replay your flights, multiple viewpoints, Chuck Yeager's sage advice during flight, and many more. Each plane has its own characteristics and flight dynamics that you need to handle correctly to succeed, and the game keeps a detailed record of your progress.
Overall, AFT is definitely one of the early pioneers in the niche genre of civilian flight sims, although since Version 2.0 (also on this site) surpasses it in every way, this early version is recommended for its nostalgic/historical value only.

...This one was wild in that you could tweak every available plane so that even a prop job could break Mach 3. And that's even if the wings ripped off. His Combat Sim was more fun - line up 15 B-29s, pretend they're Jap bombers, and send an F-4 fully loaded against the squadron. "Remember Pearl Harbor!" was never more fun :)

Was a very addictive game in it's time. Endless practice and the ability to go in space made it one of my favorites.
