If you’re looking for information on all Google Maps flight simulators then you’ve come to the right place.
Check out our reviews of the biggest google maps flight simulator games.
These games use google maps mapping technology to let you fly around the world to any airport in any country.
Don’t get fooled by competitors!!!
We tried out other “Google maps flight simulator” games and found that only some of them are actually compatible to let you fly anywhere in the world that you want.

No other game is integrated with google maps to give you realistic real-time navigation while you fly your plane all over the world with freedom.
How it Works…
I have been having loads of fun playing Google Maps Flight Simulators and got curious about how it works.
I got in touch with Dan Freeman, the programmer who made Pro Flight Simulator and asked him about it.
He gave me an exclusive on how he used it in his program to create the most realistic global flight simulator!

Basically, the Flight Simulator uses Google maps as a GPS map…
When you fly somewhere new, the game uses google maps to figure out where you are and plot your course to your new destination.
He modified it so it works different and can find the fastest plane route to your new city, not just how to get there using a car like google maps does.
It also takes into account the top speed of your plane to determine how long it will take for you to arrive at your destination.
Why this is by far the best way to navigate in a flight simulator!!!
No flight simulator before ever tried to use google maps as their navigation engine.
Instead, they relied on mapping out individual routes between cities and airports which takes a very long time.
The other problem is that it only allows you to make a map in lines. If you fly from New York to Paris there will be a map but if you make a right turn somewhere on the way, there won’t be mapping for that area!
Pro Flight Simulator and Virtual Flight 3D made it so that no matter where you go, you can track your location using the google maps navigation engine and be able to reach any city you choose.
Other flight simulators simply don’t have these advanced features!!!
Google Maps Flight Simulators are the ultimate thing in realism, the new best way to play flight simulation games.
The programmers here knew that for a game to be seen as real, it has to take place in the REAL world, and google maps was the only way to make that happen.
