Applelinks Reveals Fly II Instrument Details
10:06 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Applelinks has posted some new information on Gathering of Developer's
upcoming technically-oriented civillian flight simulation Fly! II. For those unfamiliar with the title,
Fly! II is an advanced flight sim that focuses on realistic flight and navigation. It features pre-configured single-user adventures, downloadable community
adventures, and extended multiplayer flight parties.


Among the navigational tools that Fly! II will offer are these:



  • VFR (Visual Flight Rules): VFR, the first step towards getting a flying
    license and used by most pilots, is for navigating in conjunction with
    instruments or in the event that instruments are lost. At night, pilots use
    stars to navigate; in daylight, they use visual points of reference, such as
    landmasses, roads, highways, or water.
  • IFR (Instrument Flight Rules): IFR is the second step in getting a flying
    license. IFR requires pilots to navigate using only the plane's
    instruments.
  • Global Positioning System (GPS): Fly! II will ship with an advanced
    navigation feature, Global Positioning System (GPS), a customizable
    tool allowing pinpoint accuracy and navigation across the globe.
  • NOAA Sectional/Navigation Charts: Fly! II will ship with NOAA
    Sectional/Navigation Charts for true VFR flight planning, piloting, and
    dead reckoning. Fly! II will be the only flight sim to include scrolling,
    full-color moving maps. Fly! II includes VFR, IFR, and other
    aeronautical charts for the United States.
  • True Lat/Long Coordinate System: Fly! II will feature a True Lat/Long
    Coordinate.
  • System for accurate ground and terrain placement anywhere in the
    world.


Fly! II is currently scheduled for an April 27th release. Be sure to stay tuned, as GoDgames promises to deliver news updates
leading up to the release of this title.
