I've posted a brief video up on the POE YT channel, showing a basic mission's 'take off, flight and landing' scenario. Hopefully, this shows off the title's beautiful visuals and easy flight model (although a far more technical and realistic handling model is available in-game - hey, but this is 'Playing On Easy', right?). I was using a 360 controller (natively supported), but again if you're serious about this stuff and want to spend serious money the sim supports well-known third-party high-end flight sticks for that 'authentic' feel.
I'm also flying one of the game's DLC planes and I've purchased the 'Hawaiian Adventure Pack' which opens up the entire Hawaiian Island chain for exploration and in-game mission fun. Anyone even mildly interested in flight sims but previously put-off by the steep learning curve usually associated with the genre should check out MS Flight - after all, it won't cost you a penny.
