    "been playing all day, fast paced when you reach the battles especially "ground forces" the VR aspect is separate from the main campaign but still worth it, as it gives the game a more real feel in VR. i just love skimming over the ground at 600kts, graphics are great for an action flight simulator "

    "Out of all the PS4 flying games that are out there, this one has the most legit VR experience with good core mechanics. It's actually more than just a flying sim game if you really get into it. Highly recommended!"


Did you know that pilots from the early 20th century already used high-tech flight simulators? Link Aviation Devices founder Edwin Link released the Link Pilot Trainer in 1929. The Link Pilot Trainer was a series of flight simulators that fighter pilots used during World War 2. The simulator was so effective that Air Marshal Robert Leckie, the wartime Chief of Staff of the RAF, stated that the "Luftwaffe met its Waterloo on all the training fields of the free world where there was a battery of Link Trainers."

Link spent 18 months to build his simulator using equipment from his father's factory. He used the simulator for his flight school and was selected as a replacement trainer for the US Army Air Corps. The replacement was brought about by the Air Mail Scandal wherein 12 pilots died within 78 days due to inexperience. After its tenure as trainer for mail-carriers, it was later chosen for fighter pilots. It was used by fighter pilots from the USA, Australia, Canada, UK, and the USSR. There are plenty of flight simulators and flying games for pilot trainees and hobbyists. These games often help these trainees and hobbyists feel the sensation of aviation.

    "My PS4 had not been used recently. I wanted to play a game but was bored with my existing library. I was browsing games and chose Air Conflicts: Secret Wars. I like the arcade style gameplay.
