This is the long-awaited successor of our highly acclaimed flight simulator. This simulator simulates the Space Shuttle landing and approach in amazing detail.
This is a complete remaster of the original F-Sim Space Shuttle. The new features include console-quality graphics
– Interactive tutorials
-White Sands is a third option for landing sites
– Orbit mode
F-Sim Space Shuttle is a flight simulation that combines stunning graphics with fun gameplay.
Are you a newbie to landing a Space Shuttle? You’re covered with several tutorials that offer varying levels of autopilot assistance. You can improve your landing by using our landing analysis and scoring system. You will be inspired to try again.
The flight can start at 10,000 feet and be aligned with runway or go up to 50,000 feet before banking into the heading cone. You will only get one chance to do it right with the Orbiter, as it is an unpowered glider while you descend. Its 200,000-pound weight was once a nickname for the Orbiter by astronauts. The approach is six times steeper than an airliner’s and has a low lift-over drag ratio. You can then chase your perfect landing and compare your scores online with friends to earn medals and unlock achievements. You can experiment with wind conditions, night approaches, emergency situations, or system failures. View a replay of each flight from different angles.
By tilting your device, you can control the Orbiter’s pitch and roll. You can also switch to analog sticks on the screen or use a gamepad. You can also control the autopilot to handle the speed brake, gear and chute. We have added rectangles to help beginners visualize the preferred approach path. The rectangles will guide you to the landing point if you stay within the corridor. Advanced pilots may turn the lights off and use the HUD (head-up display) instead. Simulated guidance, navigation, control (GNC), systems are exact replicas of the ones found on the Orbiter. The HUD contains all the instruments that real Space Shuttle commanders used in landing this unique aircraft. It’s now your turn to try it.
You can now take the Orbiter on an orbit around the planet. We’re also working on an atmospheric re-entry scenario. These new features will be available as free updates over the next few months.
